The fraud that is the former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, who was outed as White in 2015 but who continues to insist she “identifies” as black, is headed to South Africa to speak in favor of a non-racial society. Dolezal, recently changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo.
Much more necessary than Dolezal's inclusion in any conference on race would be her need for intense psychotherapy. Not only is she delusional about her race, she is a serial liar who has lived a fraud throughout her adult life. The last thing honest people need in a conversation about race is a fake Black woman lecturing them about race identity.
Dolezal's delusion is endemic of a culture that has resisted the fact that there are different races, genders and cultures around the world. Like it or not, it is the natural order of things. Simply deciding that race, gender and culture don't matter isn't a brave thing to do, it isn't even revolutionary. It's a denial of reality; it's delusional.
There are realities in this world that simply must be accepted; race, gender and culture are three. Another reality that we need to start teaching our children again is that not everyone is a winner and not everything our children do is "oh so awesome." We cheat them from learning from their failures by instilling a false level of self-esteem.
Then you end up like Dolezal...
