Thanks again zecharia and Doc Agnus Wh0relocks, for reminding readers here how much you both despise Dolezal for being in love with negro people.

Just remember, no matter how much you two evil wicked racist White men hate on Rachel, you will never stop her from being a negro.

Nope.

You two demons will never change the fact that she ran her own NAACP chapter in Washington where she helped negros win cases of racial discrimination (lawsuits) against your co-racists B-)
Four things we have all come to know about you:

1) You're incredibly stupid.

2) You're addicted to fried chicken.

3) You're addicted to watermelon.

4) You're incredibly stupid.

If she goes to jail, will the unnamed father of her newborn step up?

Rachel's situation should never be compared to transgender people...

Quote:
 
The American Psychological Association (APA), too, has long recognized the possibility of one’s “gender identity” not conforming to “the sex to which they were assigned at birth.” There never has been nor is there likely to ever be equivalent recognition for identification as another race.

Transgender people transition out of medical necessity. Dolezal’s “transition” to black, on the other hand, is surrounded by layers of deception—the Howard lawsuit, the false claim to an African-American father, the refusal to correct newspapers that misidentified her as “biracial”—that she was unwilling to fully unravel in her conversation with Lauer.

And unlike transgender people who can undergo medically-proven hormonal and surgical treatments to embody their new gender, Dolezal cannot become black in any meaningful sense. When asked by Lauer how she had altered her physical appearance, she responded, “I certainly don’t stay out of the sun.”

There’s no comparison between the effects of years of hormone therapy and a day on the beach.

Bruce Jenner went years, telling lies, that he never dressed up like a woman and go out onto the town. His best friend did a book about the creative ways Bruce used to disguise himself.

You thought that was really cool about Bruce, because he is Caucasian and wanted to remain Caucasian as his new transgendered self. But when Rachel did the same thing, you dragged her thru the mud, because you and zecharia are sick vile racists.

Pretty much every transgender person, starts off, being dishonest about what they were living. But for some reason your racist mind does not allow Rachel Dolezal this autonomy.

Therefore your link here is, trash, because it handcuffs and pigeon-holes humans into a condition which does not exist. The author of your dumb article has no Right to trash people who lied out of fear. Rachel lied about who she is in the same way transgender people initially lie about the lifestyle they are concealing.

Your display should make it obvious that evil wicked racist people like you, Doc Saul, are the reason why the transgenders and the Rachel Dolezal's of the world are usually dishonest about their lifestyles.

What started as an investigation into the delivery of hate mail has turned into a deeper inquiry into the racial identity of a Spokane, WA civil rights leader — and a discussion about the lengths that people may go to deceive themselves and those around them.

Rachel Dolezal, the head of Spokane’s NAACP and a fixture in the city’s black community, has long identified as African American, even designating herself as such on applications for community leadership positions. However, her estranged Caucasian parents dispelled that notion earlier this week, showing reporters at CNN affiliate KXLY her Montana birth certificate and an old family photo. Dolezal’s parents said their white daughter has some familiarity with African-American culture, having lived with four adopted black siblings. She also attended a majority-black school in Mississippi and married a black man.

Dolezal, who also lectures on African-American culture at Eastern Washington University and represents black residents on matters of police violence, hasn’t directly answered questions about her racial identity, telling USA Today, “It’s more important to me to clarify that to the black community, and with my executive board, than it really is for me to explain it to a community that I quite frankly don’t think understands the definitions of race and ethnicity.” Earlier this week, she walked away from a reporter who asked about a family photograph posted to the local NAACP chapter’s Facebook in which she’s standing next to an elderly black man whom she called her father.

Since news of Dolezal’s deception surfaced, a diverse array of people have taken to social media to respond, speculating about what her motivations may have been. No one knows for sure what may have spurred Dolezal to behave the way she did. But her case may have the makings of what researchers call “self-deception.”

In recent years, cognitive psychologists have suggested that self-deception serves a basic psychological function, perhaps created out of one’s negative view of their appearance or other characteristics. Neuroscientist V.S. Ramachandran wrote in the journal Nature that humans have the ability to keep absolute truths out of their mind so they can lead more pleasant lives, citing studies of people who have “anosognosia” — a condition among people with disabilities who deny their impairment or make up alternative explanations about why parts of their body can’t function.

While researchers acknowledge that self-deception has some benefits, and could even build confidence, they warn that it creates problems when exhibited in excess. Experts say that people who constantly lie become trapped in those untruths to the point that they create a new reality. These fabrications ultimately allow people to avoid uncomfortable parts of their lives. For some, the anxiety of facing the hard truth about the challenges of adult life — including career, money, sexual identity, and marriage — may be too much to bear. Practicing self-deception may also make it easier to lie to other people.

Historians Eugene D. Genovese and Elizabeth Fox-Genovese alluded to the possibility of self-deception among antebellum white slaveholders in their 2013 work entitled Fatal Self-Deception: Slaveholding Paternalism in the Old South. In their book, the duo suggested that slave owner created the narrative of the benevolent master that showed them in the light as saviors of happy slaves. This line of thinking, the authors said, allowed white slaveowners to justify the harsh treatment of the enslaved and argue in favor of laws that maintained a violent caste system.

The same might hold true for Dolezal, whose parents said ashe would go to great lengths to assume a new identity as a black woman and build solidarity with other people of color. During the investigation about the hate mail found in the Spokane NAACP chapter’s P.O. Box, authorities said that parts of Dolezal’s statements didn’t add up. For one, the aforementioned packages didn’t have date stamps or bar codes on the envelope. Post office employees say that the only way an unprocessed letter ends up in a box is if someone with a key or an employee placed it there.

The Spokane Spokesman-Review said that Dolezal has galvanized participation in the local NAACP chapter since her election in 2014. Before then, she had garnered a years-long record of civil rights advocacy that includes production of artwork that has sold for thousands of dollars.

While little is known about Dolezal’s motives in lying about her race, there has been some speculation that her denial of her German, Swedish, and Czech roots could be an attempt to mentally break away from her family — with whom she’s currently embroiled in a lawsuit. “Rachel has wanted to be somebody she’s not. She’s chosen not to just be herself but to represent herself as an African-American woman or a biracial person. And that’s simply not true,” Ruthanne Dolezal, Rachel’s mother, told reporters.

Looking further into this case, one may also see signs of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) — a condition that’s characterized by a preoccupation with what one may consider slight defects in their appearance. Those with the condition check their appearance and undergo cosmetic treatments to hide perceived defects in a fashion similar to what Dolezal’s parent allege. The Body Dysmorphic Disorder Foundation says that related ailments include depression, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. Those most at risk are teenagers, but the disorder affects men and women equally. A recent UCLA study tied BDD and anorexia to abnormalities in the part of the brain that processes “global” information.

Whatever the case may be, many of Dolezal’s colleagues said they feel deceived by her actions. Spokane Mayor David Condon and City Council President Ben Schuckert issued a statement in which they pledged to look into the allegations further and see if Dolezal had violated any policies. Regardless of the outcome, Dolezal’s mother said that her lies have thwarted the work that she has tried to carry out on behalf of black Spokane residents.

“It’s very sad that Rachel has not just been herself,” the older Dolezal, told the Spokane Spokesman-Review. “Her effectiveness in the causes of the African-American community would have been so much more viable, and she would have been more effective, if she had just been honest with everybody.”

Update:
On Monday, Rachel Dolezal resigned from her position at the Spokane NAACP. In the Facebook note announcing her resignation, Dolezal did not clarify her racial identity nor apologize for any deception on her part.

She has a lot in common with Binjamin Wilkomirski. He falsely claimed to be a Jewish Holocaust survivor.

The Psychology of an Ethnic Fraud: Behind Rachel Dolezal’s Invented Persecution
What went on in the mind Rachel Dolezal? A case from two decades ago with striking parallels could give us the answers, and tell us how she might react in the coming weeks.

What is wrong with Rachel Dolezal?

The President of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, WA, Dolezal has spent the past decade claiming to be a black woman, when in fact she is not. As details of her story trickle out, things only get more bizarre. Something very strange seems to be going on with Dolezal and her family. Her biological, white parents outed her in the first place. Meanwhile, she’s identified a third party (a black man) as her real father, and is alleged to have claimed one of her black adopted brothers is actually her son.

Dolezal has accused her parents of child abuse, and specifically of using a “baboon whip” to beat her and her siblings. Dolezal has described this whip, presumably a sjambok, as “pretty similar to what was used as whips during slavery,” and said that her parents “would punish us by skin complexion” by beating them with it.

In other words, Dolezal seems to be saying, not only is she black, but her family history and body itself bear the scars of the historical trauma of slavery.

Why would a person co-opt a position of marginalization and victimization in such a highly visible, risky, and outrageous way? What type of brokenness, misguidedness, illness, or malice inside a person would lead them them to do such a thing?

Her case suggests more than just a deep-seated problem, something more than just a highly narcissistic form of histrionic personal disorder, or an unhealthy need for obsession and approval.

Dolezal gives us stories replete with images of grotesque violence: beatings and whippings. Like slavery. Like torture. These are highly choreographed, ritualized sadomasochistic scenes, and to psychotherapists, they’re nothing new.

Therapists since Freud have listened to troubled patients tell stories, both plausible and more dubious, of such violence, and have regularly noticed that they are presented as stories of others being victimized when in fact it is the teller himself who is suffering from persecution that may be real or imagined or both.

And most people, rightly and compassionately, believe these stories. Until, it turns out, these stories are an emotional cover for something that could never be true.

This isn’t the first time this kind of thing has happened—even at this scale, and even with the same profoundly unsettling accusations.

Exactly twenty years ago, readers across Europe were absorbed by a remarkable, increasingly rare literary event: the revelation of a previously unknown Holocaust memoir. Published in German in 1995 as Bruchstücke: Aus einer Kindheit 1939—1948, a slim, hard-hitting first-person account offered a new, horrifying perspective on the Holocaust—that of an extremely young child, a Latvian named Binjamin Wilkomirski. Wilkomirski’s story, told in surreal, dreamlike patches punctuated by moments of stupefying violence, was riveting. Wilkomirski’s first memory, he claimed, was of witnessing his father being beaten to death.

Traveling between the concentration camps at Auschwitz and Majdanek, he claimed to have seen babies gnawing off their own frozen fingers, SS guards mutilating the penises of young boys, and more.

The account was met with considerable acclaim. For The New York Times, Wilkomirski’s prose, even in translation, conveyed “a poet’s vision; a child’s state of grace.” Fragments won the U.S. National Jewish Book Award, while Wilkomirski received numerous personal honors.

The only problem with Wilkomirski’s testimony is that it was full of lies.

At first, the initial suspicions raised by a Swiss journalist only produced a pro-Wilkomirski backlash among literati, but, even in that pre-social media moment, the questions only multiplied. Wilkomirski’s story grew more terrible with each telling: when asked why he didn’t have a camp tattoo, for example, he responded that he didn’t have one because he had been subjected to horrific Nazi medical experiments. Ultimately, Wilkomirski’s agents commissioned a formal investigation by an independent historian. To their credit, they then made public his impeccably researched, brilliantly reflective report, which Schocken also published into English.

The results were unsparing. Wilkomirski was not Latvian, nor was he Jewish, nor had he ever been interned in a concentration camp. His name wasn’t even Binjamin Wilkomirski, it was Bruno Grosjeans. He had been born illegitimately to a Swiss Prostestant woman in 1941, lived for years in a Swiss orphanage, and was adopted by a wealthy family in Zurich, the Dössekkers. “Binjamin Wilkomirski” was an entirely fabricated identity, his story, pure fiction—and DNA tests confirmed it.

Yet through it all, “Wilkomirski” insisted on the truth of his account, on his Jewishness, and on the reality of the suffering he had experienced and witnessed. He continued to do so, no matter the PR damage his fraud caused the organizations that had affiliated with him (including the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum), no matter the pain he caused the members of an actual Latvian Jewish family to whom he had presented himself as a long-lost relative, and no matter how much his actions gave grist to the mill for anti-Semitic Holocaust deniers.

It is impossible to know exactly what Bruno Dössekker was thinking when he decided to become Binjamin Wilkomirski. Scholars and journalists are divided on whether or not his acts were those of a callous, profiteering sociopath, or if he actually believed he was who he claimed to be.

It is likewise impossible to know precisely what Rachel Dolezal, the white woman, was thinking when she decided to present herself as Rachel Dolezal, the black one. The easily falsified grandiosity of some her claims about her credentials certainly suggests that Dolezal either underestimates the ability of other people to do basic Googling, or else, which is more likely given her choice of a highly public profession and previous bids for media attention, that she is not well.

Reading between the lines of Bruno Dössekker’s actual biography, you can’t also help but notice several early traumas, from his abandonment by his mother to numerous, extremely plausible suggestions of abuse while in that orphanage. It’s here that Wilkomirski/aka Grosjean/aka Dössekker’s story and that of Dolezal converge—and where we can get a hint of what might have motivated both of them, if only in part.

Both figures present themselves as persecuted individuals, horribly victimized—and they co-opt the experiences of the victims of actual historical traumas to that end. Why? Because our compassionate and proper first impulse should be to believe them first and vet them later—as our own country’s history of moral panics over Satanic Ritual Abuse underscores, for better or for worse.

In fact, one of Wilkomirski’s biggest defenders, a woman who claimed to have met him in the camps, actually turned out to be a fake survivor of both the Holocaust and Satanic Ritual Abuse. But our titillation at these stories is revealing—because they also do something for the tellers of them.

One basic, compelling account of the origin of sadomasochism formulates it as a series displaced and appropriating identifications with both the victim and the perpetrator of violence.

For some folks, rapid toggling between power and victimhood can become a defining character feature, a basic way of exerting control over their sense of a stable self and life. Fixing the abuse you witness or suffer into a ritualized scene allows you some control over it, and maybe even the ability to gain some pleasure from it.

But of course that can also ultimately be just a way to identify with the aggressor, whose control you envy and seek to capture and reenact.

And if there is any one thing that unites both Wilkomirski and Dolezal, it was their need to dress up in a position of victimhood while also displaying a degree of privilege and entitlement that only serves to further harm those who have actually suffered those wrongs.

Like Dössekker, Dolezal may well continue to tell her story, to elaborate on it, to insist on it. As more details emerge, our capacity for nuance will be taxed. Our ability to distinguish between individual pathologies and collective ones—already poor on a good day—may well disintegrate entirely.

We all have stories we tell ourselves about who we are, about where we came from, and about where we’re going. We’re also very invested in other people buying into those narratives, and therefore not thrusting us, powerless, into their own.

But here’s the thing: beyond that level of banal abstraction, our freedom to live out our stories as we see fit is not a universal entitlement. Some of us get to daydream on the way to work about who truly is our “deepest self.” Others have to be more worried about being twice more likely to be shot dead while unarmed if we get pulled over.

Dolezal may get to wear her blackness like an outfit she can take on and off—even if she never actually does discard it, even if she truly does believe that she is black. But actual black Americans will never get that option.

ATTN READERS:

Notice how Doc Saul never attacks transgenders for being dishonest about who they really are, but since Dolezal loves negros, then of course Doc Saul makes sure to attack her. It's sad, how Doc Saul was sent her by Satan to show how much he hates Black people.

For example look at how long Bruce Jenner went, being dishonest, but yet we never EVER heard a peep out of Doc Saul criticizing Bruce about being deceitful concerning his life as Caitlyn:
