Rachel Dolezal Lawsuit

  • Rachel Dolezal Lawsuit

JUNE 15--The NAACP official who today resigned in the face of evidence that she masqueraded as black once sued Howard University for denying her teaching posts and a scholarship because she was a white woman, The Smoking Gun has learned.

Rachel Dolezal, 37, who headed the NAACP’s Spokane, Washington chapter, sued Howard for discrimination in 2002, the year she graduated from the historically black college with a Master of Fine Arts degree.

 

Dolezal, then known as Rachel Moore, named the university and Professor Alfred Smith as defendants in a lawsuit filed in Washington, D.C.’s Superior Court. During the pendency of the civil case, Smith was chairman of Howard’s Department of Art.

 

According to a Court of Appeals opinion, Dolezal's lawsuit “claimed discrimination based on race, pregnancy, family responsibilities and gender.” She alleged that Smith and other school officials improperly blocked her appointment to a teaching assistant post, rejected her application for a post-graduate instructorship, and denied her scholarship aid while she was a student.

 

The court opinion also noted that Dolezal claimed that the university’s decision to remove some of her artworks from a February 2001 student exhibition was“motivated by a discriminatory purpose to favor African-American students over”her.

 

As detailed in the court opinion, Dolezal’s lawsuit contended that Howard was “permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, and insult.”

Judge Zoe Bush dismissed Dolezal’s complaint in February 2004, 18 months after the lawsuit was filed and Dolezal was deposed on several occasions. Bush found no evidence that Dolezal was discriminated on the basis of race or other factors. The D.C. Court of Appeals subsequently affirmed Bush’s decision.

Following the dismissal of Dolezal’s lawsuit (and the Court of Appeals decision), she was ordered to reimburse Howard for a “Bill of Costs” totaling $2728.50. During the case, she was also ordered to pay the university nearly $1000 in connection with an “obstructive and vexatious” court filing that sought to improperly delay her examination by an independent doctor.

Dolezal’s lawsuit, included “claims for medical and emotional distress damages,” according to a court docket. (5 pages)

Ya know, there's something racially wrong with this chick.  Hopefully, she'll get help and make amends with her father and mother before they die. Tell them you love them before they die so that you won't end up kicking your ass feeling sad when they're no longer around.  Life's really too short for all the bull shit we're surrounded by world-wide. If she's black in her mind, she's black in her mind.  No different from men who are women in their mind or women who are men in theirs.  The crazy's off the heezy these days.

 

When EVERYONE totally loses their mind to the point of no return, either there's going to be peace or there's going to be just earth circling the sun with no life upon it anywhere.

Black Twitter seriously is a treasure trove. When questionable phenomenon centered around race arises, it’s often the first and the fastest to turn SMH’s into laughable moments.

READ: Maya Rudolph’s Version Of Rachel Dolezal Is Hilariously Perfect

Take the reemergence of Rachel Dolezal, the white former NAACP chapter president still working to convince the masses (and herself) that she is indeed a blackwomanVanity Fair’s new feature on her opened up the can of worms surrounding her race fluidity, in which the accompanying photos for the piece likened a probably mixtape cover from the hood.

How much knitting yarn did it take to make that whateverthefuckitis hanging off the side of her head? Looks like there's enough of it to throw across a river and make a bridge. Whether racially confused/sexually confused; confusion's confusion. She looks like Caitlyn with some meat on the bones. The sickness that's going around affecting most of humanity's becoming too much for me to fathom. I can't believe the crap that's going down everywhere on every channel of my TV. I can't even find anything worth a damn for me to watch on DEMAND. Looks like there's about 14 hours of watching autopsies if I so choose. Ain't that some shit? Can watch some sexaholics or watch some "comedians" tell some oral sex "jokes" that are supposed to make me bowl over with laughter, I suppose. Watched a David Bowie documentary, went through that without falling asleep, which was a miracle. Dennis Rodman's on there, can't look at him long enough to even begin to think about his friendship with North Korea.

 

I have Philip Bailey's and Charlie Wilson's books to start reading and I'd better start soon. Old Blow-up Doll Mouth's flappin' about Senator McCain. Wonder how he'd have made being locked down in Viet Nam being tortured for 5 years? That teeny tiny mouth of his stuffed with something or another? Probably wouldn't have lasted 10 minutes with his 10 billion.

 

CNN can't stop talking about the 50 women Bill Cosby drugged with Quaaludes and all the shit he did that he DIDN'T want Camille to know, that she KNOWS NOW. The 30 presidential candidates yappin', flappin', noddin', wavin' everywhere else, horrific explosions in the foreign war zones between ISIS or whatever, people (probably women and babies) being fried into ashes instantly. Mothers' sons totally out of their damn minds over there and over here too.

 

I've got to search for some MIND RELAXATION. Maybe I'll start with Charlie first, Philip second.

 

Gotta coerce someone into buying me that twerking bear at Walmart, I'll start with the man I married first, to see how far I get.

Rachel Dolezal's 15 minutes of fame is officially up. It went as fast as it came.

 

She's off the front page nationally, she lost all her hustles while pretending to be a African American woman, she's not going to get any sympathy or compassion from anyone regardless of how well intended she was trying to help Blacks.

 

Getting hired?

 

Maybe (Blacks will give her a break but not Whites) but not right now.

 

More TV?

 

Dead.

 

Book or possible movie deal?

 

Dead.

 

Dylann Roof, the confederate battle flag and Rachael Dolezal.

 

All things White coming down for good.

 

There is no longer interest in her that she really hoped would have taken here to the very next level in popularity, notoriety, fame (infamy), reputation and very high positive cash flow she hoped would be coming her way because she got exposed hoping to take clear advantage of it.

 

Instead she's damaged goods, treated like a disease and a routine punch line for stand up comics.

 

She's the brand new Tiger Woods who sadly (no one cares) doesn't have a place or race to call home (Whites men and especially white women, don't want nothing to do with her) who got abandoned by the African American community because Tiger Woods isn't Black or biracial but instead, "Calabasian".

 

Her best political and business move right now?

 

Go to therapy.

 

Crazy white girl painted in a corner.

that would be a lethal combination....literally lethal!!

Sometimes, ya just have to tune folks out!! 

 

If they sound a little Dippity Doo; Tootle oo!!

 

No matter who it is; even if it's me; say:  

I still say that everyone is making this into a much bigger deal than it really is, because there are plenty of White people out there that really do "identify" with Black people, the same way there are plenty of Black people out there that "identify" with White people, and we all know that if there would not be White people out there that would send these Black people back to the Black race with their tails between their legs, these Black people would be claiming to be White and not Black.  

 

This story keeps cropping up because they know it's just more distraction chatter.

 

 

 

 

That's why there should be mandatory DNA testing and close everyone in America's mouths permanently about race. Some folks would even commit suicide probably. Sick as this country is racially; folks would have no idea. Some folks would probably even die of laughter, finding out the true identity of other folks, who had no clue.

 

Put it on TV, it would be better than anything on now. Name it:  The True Racial Identity of America's Assholes, All of Them.

She's no different than white people tattooing themselves into total blackness on their arms, then being so damn proud to show the nastiness. That truly looks insane to me along with the Blurple, which I discussed before. Folks just insane. Trump wants to get in so he can bring back the total INSANITY back in the days of 1619. People in America living the lie so much they're turning into racial beasts. God's trying to end this shit; trying hard!!!!!!

I think they made too big of a deal about her in the first place, I mean, I couldn't see what sooooooo wrong with her claiming to be Black from the context in which she explained it.  

Hell, there are countless White people in America that don't deal with nobody but Black people, that walk, "talk", dress, and live Black; who have essentially given up their "Whiteness" in favor of "Blackness".  

I believe her story was deliberately given so much press to shame other White people from adopting the Black race, and to humiliate her for doing so.  

Hell, how many people are passing for "White"as we speak?  

How many passed as "White" after Slavery?

During Reconstruction?

During jim crow?

How many Black women are walking around with their nappy hair chemically relaxed or heat straightened?  

And, [shamefully], how many Black women are getting cancer and/or scarred for life trying to bleach their beautiful black and brown and tan skin white or lighter?

How many Black people, in America (and globally) are walking around literally mimicking EVERYTHING White people do or say?

So, I think the criticism and 'outrage' was over-kill on Rachel Dolezal, and that if anything, Black people should have been insulted that her [or anyone else] wanting to be Black was viewed as so outrageous that it deserved to be put under a microscope, psychoanalyzed, and dissected into a million pieces, in the first place.

Excellent points! But I do think it was foul basing that lawsuit on reverse racism, it smacks of entitlement. 

When you contrast what Black women do with nappy hair, why is the reverse such a big deal? 

A Black family took in a white kid they were babysitting and for some reason the mother never came back for him. After so many days they went to where she was staying and got his stuff and took him in and treated him like family. He was a really a quiet dude hardly ever said a word. And he never had a lot of friends but he was one tough white boy. He seemed like he was depressed, hardly ever smiled or laugh.

But he was as Black as anyone on the block and I never forget a white boy at school called him a nigger because Timmy dressed with Black taste, spoke with a Black accent. Timmy beat his ass and dragged his face on a hot black tar street, Timmy could throw down with the best of them. This was back in the day when boys took turns fighting each other and that white boy had no idea Timmy had skills honed in the hood. He married his step sister and no one batted an eye.  

Blackness is culture too, not just what we look like.

  I listen to the interview.  Wasn't impressed.  Blackness is a label massa put on us...but!  It's our culture he/she wants cuz he/she ain't got one.  So like always they select the portions of our culture they want/like as theirs then bash what they don't want/like/or understand as truth.  What troubles me is the arrogant and entitlement....and the open denial about their twisted barbaric misogynistic  history.  As I listen to her speak, I can't help but think....how dare you whore.  Stand in your own lane.  This is not your culture.  We can't have anything.  Not even our men.  With you snooping being the whore that you are.  That's all you know  So.  Oh No. You ain't tryin to come in my kitchen talking no shyte about my black culture.  I don't care how many black heads you braided or combed or brush.  Don't make you black.  So.  Who.  You?  That's what I'm thinking as I  hear describe what she think is the essence of black hair.  Her credentials means...absolutely nothing.  Cuz we have own amazing black women past and future doing their thing for the black cause.  Hey these women are the REASON there is still admiration and pride about the black culture.  Don't need no skank whore speaking for us.  We do WELL all by ourselves.   As a matter of fact, we do EXCELLENT.

If you really care?  Since you now have black babies?  Spend more time at the police brutality protests/justice for peace rallies.   Other than that?  Us black women here doing fine.  Just fine...without you.  That's what I would like to convey, if I could.  Cuz we don't need a minstrel dance coming from a white whore.  She can contribute nothing.  Not a damn thang.  Like she's a better black woman than a REAL black woman.  GTFOH.  See?  Massa  TOOK everything.  Now his whore is attempting to take the black woman's identity. [cuz the only identity the white woman has is being whore or madame in some (Arab's) harem or playboy bunny club] .  I know that this is a bit of a stretch.  But this is the real world and the kind of thinking that got us over here as slaves.  So I wouldn't put anything pass a white whore's motive.  Hell Jenner is now wearing a dress. He snatched our identity so you know white whore gonna follow right behind him.  As why it is important for Rachel to be viewed as a black woman....not a white woman.  Cuz her history is sex slavery.  Our history is labor.  Then we got freedom.  Hers is still ongoing.  So whose history would you pick?    But!

There are so many things we could have been born as. Be thankful we're human. Who cares what this confused woman wants to do with herself?? No worse than Caitlyn Jenner or some of the other confused humans on the planet. If white people had been born as spiders, we could have tap danced all over their asses and squished them into oblivion. Folks need to be thankful they're breathing today. Some crazy mother's something or another could blow your brains out before the day's over. Worry about things important. Black White Rachel ain't one. That's her mother's problem. When you go outside, look at the folks and like "Find Waldo", see if you can "Find Sanity", amongst the creeps walking your way. If you find one, you've had a good day for now.

lmfao at this text I just got. howard university potbelly.

 

Maya Cade, the executive editor of A Tribe Called News, wrote that Dolezal stepped on the grounds of her alma mater to film a documentary about "race and identity in America." According to Cade, the director of the film is white. No word yet on the name of the documentary, but chances areTranscending Race was suggested at least once.

Calls to Howard inquiring whether the university granted permission for Dolezal to film on campus were not immediately returned.

I kinda like her, she identifies being Black and loving it. Yeah, she did some questionable things but I don't think anyone got hurt? Lots of coons really want to be white, doing everything they can to look white and I don't see white people criticizing them. 

  When they talk about her?  I  say to myself....Duh  ummm whatever man.  Cuz she [with her taking ownership of being black]...strikes me a little different-knowing the history of the white mistress associated with slavery, and the ante bellum era.  I dunno.  I just don't believe it.  Something about her to me is fake and it could be that something happened in her family dynamics to make her reach outside of that to seek another identity[as a matter of fact, the total opposite in identity].  I'm not sure how I feel about her anymore.  With everything happening to our race-the violence, the deaths...I grow very suspicious to the enemy's motives...even with a smiling face and even when wearing our style of image...somethin' just ain't right.  I feel it in my gut.  It could be for me how massa can just SNATCH...focking take our identity at will-dissect it.   And we can't say anything...cuz you know we don't have proof except for the black image smeared on the ancient artifact...not the graphic imagery that massa creates demanding that it belongs to him-when it clearly doesn't.  So I'm troubled with women like her who use our identity to hide behind...without dealing their own indiscretions with their people...why pull us in it?  So I'm currently strugglin with that.  Cuz we can't have nothing it appears.  We can't have our OWN culture...or the people in it.  I feel sometimes like the animals who are skinned for their pelts and the rest as food.  They taking our music, our sciences, our arts or literary works, our achievements, our image/philosophy.....I mean what can we as people keep as OURS?   Now this?  Couple that with transgenders....and man!  Black people ain't gon have no rights....cuz they are gonna be usurped by wannabe blacks...plus if they wanna be a woman too?  We are doomed.  But!

Not confined merely to one’s gender identification, the meaning of transgender seems to imply that gender identity to which a person presently identifies with transcends and go beyond their gender birth assignment. Therefore, birth assignment and a birth certificate both of which identify gender at birth is illrelavant and has little or no meaning as it relates to gender identification.   In the 1970’s the U.S Census Bureau added the racial category of “other” that identified Americans of mixed racial heritage.   In particular the category “other” applied to Americans of mixed racial identity who refused to be categorized as solely black, white or Asian.   Likewise, transgender and transsexual people and their advocates are seeking a third legal gender category.   The transgender argument and resolution will ultimately reach the Supreme Court of the United States where the question of whether transgender is a protected category under the CRA of 1964.

If the Supreme Court of the United States affirms that transgender is indeed a protected class and category under the CRA of 1964, then the meaning of transgender that I alluded to in the above paragraph applies. In light of a US Supreme Court decision that affirms transgender as a protected class then any argument that relates to the issue of gender specific public facilities and birth assignment is futile. In the case of transgender one can only conclude that an affirmative decision by SCOTUS is interpreted to indicate that gender assignment at birth relative to current gender identity is obsolete.

In similar manner as the transgender birth assignment argument, being born from a union of two Caucasian parents should be equally as obsolete when it comes to racial identification. The US Census Bureau as I previously stated added the category and placed a check box “other” on census questionnaires that identifies those of mixed racial heritage.   Rachel Dolezal has argued vehemently that she identifies as “black or African American.”   In Rachel Dolezal’s case the question of racial identification carries the same qualities as that of transgender for whom both identities differs from their birth and racial assignment. Thus, following this current transgender crusade it is not inconceivable to believe or imagine that in the next 50 or so years, - the day will arrive when regardless of skin color “white wiggers,” and black people who deny their race may get their wish and be able to legally claim to be other than what they were born as. The ramifications would turn affirmative action and the CRA of 1964 on its head as any white person who as Rachel Dolezal has done can identify as black. Thus, in the future anybody based solely on racial identification could have legal grounds to argue and win affirmative action cases. This is not what Dr. King envisioned.

Aside from denying the real horrors and depravity of the centuries-long Holocaust against us, how often is the obvious acknowledged? –  > that the US is a Euro-African culture.

I was checking Trump supporters on Facebook. They are haters and KKKers from hell. We’ll get an accurate readout of how many throwback white racists are out there by how many vote for ignorant Don. Yeah, I’m voting.

She's back!!!

SHE’S BACK
Rachel Dolezal’s New Controversy: Headlining a Natural Hair Rally
The woman who was born white and identifies as black is causing an uproar for simply being invited to speak to a gathering focused on black hair.
Linda Jones

09.01.16 1:00 AM ET
Rachael Dolezal, the white woman caught masquerading as a black woman who ignited a national debate about race, has kept a relatively low profile since her fall last year.
But this weekend she will headline the Naturally Isis Braid-On, Economic Liberty March and Rally in Dallas, Texas. Dolezal was invited by Isis Brantley, a celebrity stylist, natural hair activist, and owner of the Institute of Ancestral Braiding.
The announcement about Dolezal, posted on Brantley’s Facebook pages, sent formidable shock waves throughout the natural hair community as baffled naturalistas struggled to understand why a champion of an African cultural art form would invite a white woman accused of appropriating black culture to be a featured speaker at a black cultural event.

Dolezal, who lives in Spokane, Washington, says that she had no ill intent when Brantley approached her through Facebook in February to invite her. She said it was a few months before she accepted because she was close to giving birth to her third child.
“I’m not coming as a curiosity or for any controversy,” said Dolezal, who agreed to a phone interview on the condition Brantley be interviewed at the same time. “My intention is to support Isis and the braid freedom movement in whatever way it will be most helpful. I don’t want to be a liability for anyone. It’s a justice issue and I’ve been a social justice activist for years. It’s really that simple.”
Since resigning from the NAACP and losing her job as an adjunct instructor of Africana studies at Eastern Washington University, Dolezal said she now makes her living as a braider. Dolezal once taught a course in the politics of black hair—now she works braiding it. She specializes in creating styles that are popular among African-American women.
Dolezal kept the media pretty busy last year digging up details about her background. She insisted that a black man, Albert Wilkerson, was her father, even though he repeatedly denied it and her estranged biological parents, who are white, produced photographs and a birth certificate as proof that she is white. Her cover was blown after she was suspected of planting a package in the post office box of the NAACP that was addressed to her and filled with racial threats and epithets. What was mysterious was that the package had no postmark that would indicate that was actually mailed to the post office box which had only two keys. The postal workers who were cleared in the investigation had access to one key, Dolezal had the other.
Brantley, who insists that she did not know about Dolezal’s reputation and controversial past, says the backlash and critical social media messages took her by surprise.
“I couldn’t believe it,” she told The Daily Beast during the interview call. “People threatened to boycott me. They are calling me a sellout and saying that I am ‘Massa’s girl’ or some mess like that. I just stopped looking and blocked everybody.”

Brantley says that Dolezal’s braiding skills that she caught glimpses of on television “impressed” her and she wanted to ask her to come to the hair event to celebrate and join them in rallying for braiders’ rights.
“This would make a great connection or union,” Brantley said. “If we could just come together we can spread this love across the country and see that braiders are free to work in all 50 states.”
She said that Dolezal’s role will have more to do with solidarity, meeting and greeting but not serving as a keynote speaker.
Reactions to Brantley’s decision to invite Dolezal were emotional, ranging from ear-shattering wails of disbelief, expletives, and social media postings that either ranted or mocked what she did. Because Brantley is a revered leader in the community, many of the disappointed ones preferred to keep their comments off the record.
“Strange bedfellows,” says L. Michelle Smith, a Dallas PR executive and former client of Brantley who joins the chorus of the confused. “Isis is everyone’s natural hair hero and Dolezal is the queen of cultural appropriation.”
“Sisters are hotter than a straightening comb in a beauty shop full of women on the day before Easter,” says Olinka Green, a Dallas community activist who asked whether Dolezal had any magical skills that helped her get invited.

“Can she touch scalps and instantly get rid of aleopecia?” Green said. “Can she restore growth? Does she have the Midas touch? Apparently she does because she went from being pale white to golden brown.
“Rachel wants the black girl magic and the glory and attribution,” she said, “but she can’t put up with what we go through day to day.”
“Bringing her is a slap right in our faces,” said Tonia Lawson, a longtime Brantley admirer from Detroit. Lawson saw the Facebook announcement, which had a photo of Brantley wearing her trademark puffy, free-flowing curls, posed next to Dolezal who wore long blond locs. “It was absolutely a Twilight Zone moment for me,” Lawson said. “I started to unfriend her I was so mad.”
Brantley’s critics flooded her Facebook page with their complaints and accusations of betrayal before she deleted the posts. Many don’t believe that she was unaware of Dolezal’s background since the media was saturated with stories of her exploits that also dominated conversations and debates about racial identity for months.
“Everybody knows about that controversy,” said Kerin Rodriguez of Dallas, who has attended previous hair events by Brantley. “Isis knows exactly what she’s doing and why she’s doing it—to get people to go to her event.”
Rodriguez refers to a Facebook message that Brantley posted in May that causes her to doubt Brantley’s claims of being clueless about Dolezal’s bizarre past. In the message Brantley asked whether Dolezal should be allowed to participate on a team of organizers who would help plan a natural hair event and march that will take place in Washington, D.C., next year. It appears that she did not consult with them about whether Dolezal should attend her Dallas event.
“Why is it necessary that she is there?” said Pamela Ferrell, a prominent D.C. braid salon owner and co-founder of the Washington, D.C.-based American Hairbraiders and Natural Haircare Association (AHNHA), which has supported Brantley and hundreds of other braiders in legal battles over regulation of what they consider a cultural art form that should not be government controlled. Ferrell worries whether Dolezal is being handed an unfair advantage and will use the platform as an opportunity to further a personal agenda. “The controversy around this person is her dishonesty,” said Ferrell. “Don’t think of her as someone who has contributed to the years of work we have done to protect this cultural art form. I see it as an opportunity for a white woman to steal this African cultural art form, become an expert and then get opportunities that we have been denied. I’ve seen it happen over and over again.”
Brantley’s history of braiding and activism in the profession dates back to 1979 when she first started braiding, supporting her four children who are now adults with her earnings. Twelve-year-old Erica Abi Wright, who grew up to be performer Erykah Badu, was one of Brantley’s many clients over the years. For two of the hair event’s six-year history, Badu lent her celebrity and hometown popularity to draw large numbers, which have since dwindled in her absence as headliner. While Dolezal may not have the Badu-level celebrity to guarantee a large event turnout, her notoriety and pending appearance have created enough buzz to draw the curious—and the furious.
Brantley also has a history of controversy from her nearly 20-year-battle with the state of Texas over licensing issues. In the late 1990s, she was arrested for braiding hair without a license, but after the state gave in to lobbying efforts she was later “grandfathered” into a new rule that created a separate category of braiding certification that requires only 35 hours of instruction to braid legally as a business, instead of meeting the 1,500 cosmetology training requirement. In 2013, Brantley fought with the state over rules preventing her from being able to open a braiding school unless she first became a licensed barber and met strict equipment and building requirements. In January, after filing a joint lawsuit with the Institute of Justice (a law firm that represents individuals who have been denied their constitutional rights), a U.S. district court judge ruled that the state regulations prohibiting Brantley and other braiders from seeking an honest living as braid instructors was unconstitutional. The ruling lifted barriers for Brantley and other braiders to work unencumbered by arbitrary state regulations.
Journalist Cheryl Smith, who publishes several black weekly newspapers in the Dallas area, is among those who say they are confused by Brantley’s decision, but understand the complexities of activism and the challenges of getting support from people whose causes they struggle to represent. For that reason, she says she is willing to give Brantley the benefit of the doubt.
“Why can’t people with a consciousness be able to speak out on issues that might not directly impact them? The only thing it appears Rachel did was misrepresent and lie about who she was. I don’t know what her motivation was for lying, but that’s not the issue. If there is someone who does not look like me, but who supports and votes and addresses issues that are of interest to me and what I stand for, they are more valuable to me than the millions who look like me and don’t do anything.”
Dolezal doesn’t seem to be ruffled by the criticism. She says that the social media feedback that she has received has been positive and is looking forward to the visit. In the meantime, she is focusing on braiding and raising a 6-month-old son, Langston, who is named after the late black poet Langston Hughes.
Dolezal says she will soon have an opportunity to tell the full side of her story through her memoir that she says is a few chapters away from completion. She says that her agent shopped her 20,000-word book proposal to more than 30 publishers who passed on it, fearing negative publicity, before independent publisher BenBella books gave her a deal.
The book, she says, will tell about her life and address “the larger issues of race.”
“I agree with Dick Gregory, who says that white isn’t a race, it’s a state of mind,” Dolezal says. “I pay homage to my African ancestry.”

What's the difference between Rachel being black and Caitlyn being a woman? Just because you say it's so doesn't MEAN it's so.

We can't say shit about her being in the "natural" hair business and most of the African women are wearing everything with straight hair fixated upon their heads. She looks no more ridiculous than we do with relaxers and fake dog hair/horse hair/corpse hair/Caucasoid hair/Indian hair/every country with straight hair/every animal with straight hair, flowing down our backs.

My hair's relaxed and grey and I probably look like Homie the Clown; and don't give a shit and one half. It is what it is. It's growing out of my scalp, I'm not bald and I'm not coloring it, so that's good fo' me. Don't like it, tough shit. My days of enticing penis owners are long over and I damn sure go NO other way. I'se thru!!!!!

Confusion is confusion no matter how it's portrayed. Everyone here in America that's been here more than a minute's calling themselves "American." Europeans even call themselves "American."

Confusion is confusion.

There's a white woman in my family in a roundabout way that'll tell you in a heartbeat, she "hates being white!"

Go on with your Black self Rachel. Braid on!!!!

Rachel Dolezal tapped to speak at MLK event

 

CARY, N.C. — Former Washington state NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, who was criticized last year for passing herself off as black, has been tapped to speak at a North Carolina Martin Luther King Day celebration in January.

The Raleigh News & Observer reports the theme of the MLK Dreamfest Celebration in Cary, North Carolina, is “Healing Race Relations through Conversation and Participation.”

Event organizer Al Cohen tells the newspaper that Dolezal was “depicted as a major villain through media because of her preference of racial identity.” He says Dolezal committed no crime, adding that “She only had an affinity for a group of people, and she served her community well.”

 
 

Dolezal has acknowledged that she is “Caucasian biologically,” but says she identifies as black.

Rachel, there a heap of people that believe they're "Caucasian biologically" and are BLACK. If you want to identify as BLACK, you just might be, somewhere along the line. Enjoy your blackness. Men enjoy their woman-ness all over this country. Be what you want to be whether you ARE or NOT. Be YOU or PRETEND. Whatever floats the boat!!!!!!

  Still tryin to make those dollas off us.  SAD!  And pitiful.  Hope no blacks....not one black person buys her book.  Don't do it!  But!

The Supreme Court of the United States will soon hear the so-called transgender bathroom issue case.   If the justices unanimously agree that transgender is a protected class under the Civil Rights Act, - in so doing the ramification would mean legalizing the notion that a person’s gender designation noted at the time of their birth and recorded on their birth certificate is now considered as having no legally recognized relevancy in terms of a person’s gender identity. But would legalization also mean that transgender boys could use facilities designated female? We will find out next year when the Supreme Court hears the case.

Given what I just outlined as it pertains to transgender, aside from the categories of gender and race, Rachael Dolezal’s racial identity argument appears similar to that of the transgender argument. That is, in both cases transgender and Rachael Dolezal’s racial identity argument both cite birth assignment and racial designation as having no relevancy to their current identification or how they see themselves today. In Rachael Dolezal’s case the ramifications of lawful racial identity could mean that any white person irrespective of biology who claims African American heritage could be entitled to Affirmative Action benefits and other set asides intended for African Americans. Be that as it may, whether gender identity or racial identities both are grounded and have their foundations based on a contradiction and rejection of their race and/or gender at birth.

Therefore, when the Supreme Court of the United States who is set to hear the transgender bathroom case next year, even if the Justices accept transgender as a protected category under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but otherwise leans unanimously on the side of biology thus confirming that a person can legally only be what they were born as, e.g., born black, white, female or male, - this decision clarifies the legal meaning of gender thus maintaining the status quote as it relates to male and female bathrooms and other gender related facilities.   Leaning on the side of biology will also kill any case for racial identity in the future. If on the other hand the Justices not only agree to and accept transgender and all of its ramifications, i.e., based on their gender identification giving them legal rights to use bathrooms and other facilities of their choosing, - could open the door for future racial identity cases.   Presuming that the transgender case is won, based on the precedence that will be set in this landmark case, - there is no doubt in my mind that the likes of Rachael Dolezal could in the future also have a case that could be won in the Supreme Court of the United States.

TITLE VI--NONDISCRIMINATION IN FEDERALLY ASSISTED PROGRAMS
SEC. 601. No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

SEC. 602. Each Federal department and agency which is empowered to extend Federal financial assistance to any program or activity, by way of grant, loan, or contract other than a contract of insurance or guaranty, is authorized and directed to effectuate the provisions of section 601 with respect to such program or activity by issuing rules, regulations, or orders of general applicability which shall be consistent with achievement of the objectives of the statute authorizing the financial assistance in connection with which the action is taken. No such rule, regulation, or order shall become effective unless and until approved by the President. Compliance with any requirement adopted pursuant to this section may be effected (1) by the termination of or refusal to grant or to continue assistance under such program or activity to any recipient as to whom there has been an express finding on the record, after opportunity for hearing, of a failure to comply with such requirement, but such termination or refusal shall be limited to the particular political entity, or part thereof, or other recipient as to whom such a finding has been made and, shall be limited in its effect to the particular program, or part thereof, in which such non-compliance has been so found, or (2) by any other means authorized by law: Provided, however, That no such action shall be taken until the department or agency concerned has advised the appropriate person or persons of the failure to comply with the requirement and has determined that compliance cannot be secured by voluntary means. In the case of any action terminating, or refusing to grant or continue, assistance because of failure to comply with a requirement imposed pursuant to this section, the head of the federal department or agency shall file with the committees of the House and Senate having legislative jurisdiction over the program or activity involved a full written report of the circumstances and the grounds for such action. No such action shall become effective until thirty days have elapsed after the filing of such report.

SEC. 603. Any department or agency action taken pursuant to section 602 shall be subject to such judicial review as may otherwise be provided by law for similar action taken by such department or agency on other grounds. In the case of action, not otherwise subject to judicial review, terminating or refusing to grant or to continue financial assistance upon a finding of failure to comply with any requirement imposed pursuant to section 602, any person aggrieved (including any State or political subdivision thereof and any agency of either) may obtain judicial review of such action in accordance with section 10 of the Administrative Procedure Act, and such action shall not be deemed committed to unreviewable agency discretion within the meaning of that section.

SEC. 604. Nothing contained in this title shall be construed to authorize action under this title by any department or agency with respect to any employment practice of any employer, employment agency, or labor organization except where a primary objective of the Federal financial assistance is to provide employment.

SEC. 605. Nothing in this title shall add to or detract from any existing authority with respect to any program or activity under which Federal financial assistance is extended by way of a contract of insurance or guaranty.

(a) Whenever it is charged in writing under oath by a person claiming to be aggrieved, or a written charge has been filed by a member of the Commission where he has reasonable cause to believe a violation of this title has occurred (and such charge sets forth the facts upon which it is based) that an employer, employment agency, or labor organization has engaged in an unlawful employment practice, the Commission shall furnish such employer, employment agency, or labor organization (hereinafter referred to as the "respondent") with a copy of such charge and shall make an investigation of such charge, provided that such charge shall not be made public by the Commission. If the Commission shall determine, after such investigation, that there is reasonable cause to believe that the charge is true, the Commission shall endeavor to eliminate any such alleged unlawful employment practice by informal methods of conference, conciliation, and persuasion. Nothing said or done during and as a part of such endeavors may be made public by the Commission without the written consent of the parties, or used as evidence in a subsequent proceeding. Any officer or employee of the Commission, who shall make public in any manner whatever any information in violation of this subsection shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be fined not more than $1,000 or imprisoned not more than one year.

(b) In the case of an alleged unlawful employment practice occurring in a State, or political subdivision of a State, which has a State or local law prohibiting the unlawful employment practice alleged and establishing or authorizing a State or local authority to grant or seek relief from such practice or to institute criminal proceedings with respect thereto upon receiving notice thereof, no charge may be filed under subsection (a) by the person aggrieved before the expiration of sixty days after proceedings have been commenced under the State or local law, unless such proceedings have been earlier terminated, provided that such sixty-day period shall be extended to one hundred and twenty days during the first year after the effective date of such State or local law. If any requirement for the commencement of such proceedings is imposed by a State or local authority other than a requirement of the filing of a written and signed statement of the facts upon which the proceeding is based, the proceeding shall be deemed to have been commenced for the purposes of this subsection at the time such statement is sent by registered mail to the appropriate State or local authority.

(c) In the case of any charge filed by a member of the Commission alleging an unlawful employment practice occurring in a State or political subdivision of a State, which has a State or local law prohibiting the practice alleged and establishing or authorizing a State or local authority to grant or seek relief from such practice or to institute criminal proceedings with respect thereto upon receiving notice thereof, the Commission shall, before taking any action with respect to such charge, notify the appropriate State or local officials and, upon request, afford them a reasonable time, but not less than sixty days (provided that such sixty-day period shall be extended to one hundred and twenty days during the first year after the effective day of such State or local law), unless a shorter period is requested, to act under such State or local law to remedy the practice alleged.

(d) A charge under subsection (a) shall be filed within ninety days after the alleged unlawful employment practice occurred, except that in the case of an unlawful employment practice with respect to which the person aggrieved has followed the procedure set out in subsection (b), such charge shall be filed by the person aggrieved within two hundred and ten days after the alleged unlawful employment practice occurred, or within thirty days after receiving notice that the State or local agency has terminated the proceedings under the State or local, law, whichever is earlier, and a copy of such charge shall be filed by the Commission with the State or local agency.

(e) If within thirty days after a charge is filed with the Commission or within thirty days after expiration of any period of reference under subsection (c) (except that in either case such period may be extended to not more than sixty days upon a determination by the Commission that further efforts to secure voluntary compliance are warranted), the Commission has been unable to obtain voluntary compliance with this title, the Commission shall so notify the person aggrieved and a civil action may, within thirty days thereafter, be brought against the respondent named in the charge (1) by the person claiming to be aggrieved, or (2) if such charge was filed by a member of the Commission, by any person whom the charge alleges was aggrieved by the alleged unlawful employment practice. Upon application by the complainant and in such circumstances as the court may deem just, the court may appoint an attorney for such complainant and may authorize the commencement of the action without the payment of fees, costs, or security. Upon timely application, the court may, in its discretion, permit the Attorney General to intervene in such civil action if he certifies that the case is of general public importance. Upon request, the court may, in its discretion, stay further proceedings for not more than sixty days pending the termination of State or local proceedings described in subsection (b) or the efforts of the Commission to obtain voluntary compliance.

(f) Each United States district court and each United States court of a place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States shall have jurisdiction of actions brought under this title. Such an action may be brought in any judicial district in the State in which the unlawful employment practice is alleged to have been committed, in the judicial district in which the employment records relevant to such practice are maintained and administered, or in the judicial district in which the plaintiff would have worked but for the alleged unlawful employment practice, but if the respondent is not found within any such district, such an action may be brought within the judicial district in which the respondent has his principal office. For purposes of sections 1404 and 1406 of title 28 of the United States Code, the judicial district in which the respondent has his principal office shall in all cases be considered a district in which the action might have been brought.

(g) If the court finds that the respondent has intentionally engaged in or is intentionally engaging in an unlawful employment practice charged in the complaint, the court may enjoin the respondent from engaging in such unlawful employment practice, and order such affirmative action as may be appropriate, which may include reinstatement or hiring of employees, with or without back pay (payable by the employer, employment agency, or labor organization, as the case may be, responsible for the unlawful employment practice). Interim earnings or amounts earnable with reasonable diligence by the person or persons discriminated against shall operate to reduce the back pay otherwise allowable. No order of the court shall require the admission or reinstatement of an individual as a member of a union or the hiring, reinstatement, or promotion of an individual as an employee, or the payment to him of any back pay, if such individual was refused admission, suspended, or expelled or was refused employment or advancement or was suspended or discharged for any reason other than discrimination on account of race, color, religion, sex or national origin or in violation of section 704(a).

(h) The provisions of the Act entitled "An Act to amend the Judicial Code and to define and limit the jurisdiction of courts sitting in equity, and for other purposes," approved March 23, 1932 (29 U.S.C. 101-115), shall not apply with respect to civil actions brought under this section.

(i) In any case in which an employer, employment agency, or labor organization fails to comply with an order of a court issued in a civil action brought under subsection (e), the Commission may commence proceedings to compel compliance with such order.

(j) Any civil action brought under subsection (e) and any proceedings brought under subsection (i) shall be subject to appeal as provided in sections 1291 and 1292, title 28, United States Code.

(k) In any action or proceeding under this title the court, in its discretion, may allow the prevailing party, other than the Commission or the United States, a reasonable attorney's fee as part of the costs, and the Commission and the United States shall be liable for costs the same as a private person.

SEC. 707. (a) Whenever the Attorney General has reasonable cause to believe that any person or group of persons is engaged in a pattern or practice of resistance to the full enjoyment of any of the rights secured by this title, and that the pattern or practice is of such a nature and is intended to deny the full exercise of the rights herein described, the Attorney General may bring a civil action in the appropriate district court of the United States by filing with it a complaint (1) signed by him (or in his absence the Acting Attorney General), (2) setting forth facts pertaining to such pattern or practice, and (3) requesting such relief, including an application for a permanent or temporary injunction, restraining order or other order against the person or persons responsible for such pattern or practice, as he deems necessary to insure the full enjoyment of the rights herein described.

(b) The district courts of the United States shall have and shall exercise jurisdiction of proceedings instituted pursuant to this section, and in any such proceeding the Attorney General may file with the clerk of such court a request that a court of three judges be convened to hear and determine the case. Such request by the Attorney General shall be accompanied by a certificate that, in his opinion, the case is of general public importance. A copy of the certificate and request for a three-judge court shall be immediately furnished by such clerk to the chief judge of the circuit (or in his absence, the presiding circuit judge of the circuit) in which the case is pending. Upon receipt of such request it shall be the duty of the chief judge of the circuit or the presiding circuit judge, as the case may be, to designate immediately three judges in such circuit, of whom at least one shall be a circuit judge and another of whom shall be a district judge of the court in which the proceeding was instituted, to hear and determine such case, and it shall be the duty of the judges so designated to assign the case for hearing at the earliest practicable date, to participate in the hearing and determination thereof, and to cause the case to be in every way expedited. An appeal from the final judgment of such court will lie to the Supreme Court.

In the event the Attorney General fails to file such a request in any such proceeding, it shall be the duty of the chief judge of the district (or in his absence, the acting chief judge) in which the case is pending immediately to designate a judge in such district to hear and determine the case. In the event that no judge in the district is available to hear and determine the case, the chief judge of the district, or the acting chief judge, as the case may be, shall certify this fact to the chief judge of the circuit (or in his absence, the acting chief judge) who shall then designate a district or circuit judge of the circuit to hear and determine the case.

It shall be the duty of the judge designated pursuant to this section to assign the case for hearing at the earliest practicable date and to cause the case to be in every way expedited.

EFFECT ON STATE LAWS
SEC. 708. Nothing in this title shall be deemed to exempt or relieve any person from any liability, duty, penalty, or punishment provided by any present or future law of any State or political subdivision of a State, other than any such law which purports to require or permit the doing of any act which would be an unlawful employment practice under this title.

INVESTIGATIONS, INSPECTIONS, RECORDS, STATE AGENCIES
SEC. 709. (a) In connection with any investigation of a charge filed under section 706, the Commission or its designated representative shall at all reasonable times have access to, for the purposes of examination, and the right to copy any evidence of any person being investigated or proceeded against that relates to unlawful employment practices covered by this title and is relevant to the charge under investigation.

(b) The Commission may cooperate with State and local agencies charged with the administration of State fair employment practices laws and, with the consent of such agencies, may for the purpose of carrying out its functions and duties under this title and within the limitation of funds appropriated specifically for such purpose, utilize the services of such agencies and their employees and, notwithstanding any other provision of law, may reimburse such agencies and their employees for services rendered to assist the Commission in carrying out this title. In furtherance of such cooperative efforts, the Commission may enter into written agreements with such State or local agencies and such agreements may include provisions under which the Commission shall refrain from processing a charge in any cases or class of cases specified in such agreements and under which no person may bring a civil action under section 706 in any cases or class of cases so specified, or under which the Commission shall relieve any person or class of persons in such State or locality from requirements imposed under this section. The Commission shall rescind any such agreement whenever it determines that the agreement no longer serves the interest of effective enforcement of this title.

(c) Except as provided in subsection (d), every employer, employment agency, and labor organization subject to this title shall (1) make and keep such records relevant to the determinations of whether unlawful employment practices have been or are being committed, (2) preserve such records for such periods, and (3) make such reports therefrom, as the Commission shall prescribe by regulation or order, after public hearing, as reasonable, necessary, or appropriate for the enforcement of this title or the regulations or orders thereunder. The Commission shall, by regulation, require each employer, labor organization, and joint labor-management committee subject to this title which controls an apprenticeship or other training program to maintain such records as are reasonably necessary to carry out the purpose of this title, including, but not limited to, a list of applicants who wish to participate in such program, including the chronological order in which such applications were received, and shall furnish to the Commission, upon request, a detailed description of the manner in which persons are selected to participate in the apprenticeship or other training program. Any employer, employment agency, labor organization, or joint labor-management committee which believes that the application to it of any regulation or order issued under this section would result in undue hardship may (1) apply to the Commission for an exemption from the application of such regulation or order, or (2) bring a civil action in the United States district court for the district where such records are kept. If the Commission or the court, as the case may be, finds that the application of the regulation or order to the employer, employment agency, or labor organization in question would impose an undue hardship, the Commission or the court, as the case may be, may grant appropriate relief.

(d) The provisions of subsection (c) shall not apply to any employer, employment agency, labor organization, or joint labor-management committee with respect to matters occurring in any State or political subdivision thereof which has a fair employment practice law during any period in which such employer, employment agency, labor organization, or joint labor-management committee is subject to such law, except that the Commission may require such notations on records which such employer, employment agency, labor organization, or joint labor-management committee keeps or is required to keep as are necessary because of differences in coverage or methods of enforcement between the State or local law and the provisions of this title. Where an employer is required by Executive Order 10925, issued March 6, 1961, or by any other Executive order prescribing fair employment practices for Government contractors and subcontractors, or by rules or regulations issued thereunder, to file reports relating to his employment practices with any Federal agency or committee, and he is substantially in compliance with such requirements, the Commission shall not require him to file additional reports pursuant to subsection (c) of this section.

(e) It shall be unlawful for any officer or employee of the Commission to make public in any manner whatever any information obtained by the Commission pursuant to its authority under this section prior to the institution of any proceeding under this title involving such information. Any officer or employee of the Commission who shall make public in any manner whatever any information in violation of this subsection shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more than $1,000, or imprisoned not more than one year.

INVESTIGATORY POWERS
SEC. 710. (a) For the purposes of any investigation of a charge filed under the authority contained in section 706, the Commission shall have authority to examine witnesses under oath and to require the production of documentary evidence relevant or material to the charge under investigation.

(b) If the respondent named in a charge filed under section 706 fails or refuses to comply with a demand of the Commission for permission to examine or to copy evidence in conformity with the provisions of section 709(a), or if any person required to comply with the provisions of section 709 (c) or (d) fails or refuses to do so, or if any person fails or refuses to comply with a demand by the Commission to give testimony under oath, the United States district court for the district in which such person is found, resides, or transacts business, shall, upon application of the Commission, have jurisdiction to issue to such person an order requiring him to comply with the provisions of section 709 (c) or (d) or to comply with the demand of the Commission, but the attendance of a witness may not be required outside the State where he is found, resides, or transacts business and the production of evidence may not be required outside the State where such evidence is kept.

(c) Within twenty days after the service upon any person charged under section 706 of a demand by the Commission for the production of documentary evidence or for permission to examine or to copy evidence in conformity with the provisions of section 709(a), such person may file in the district court of the United States for the judicial district in which he resides, is found, or transacts business, and serve upon the Commission a petition for an order of such court modifying or setting aside such demand. The time allowed for compliance with the demand in whole or in part as deemed proper and ordered by the court shall not run during the pendency of such petition in the court. Such petition shall specify each ground upon which the petitioner relies in seeking such relief, and may be based upon any failure of such demand to comply with the provisions of this title or with the limitations generally applicable to compulsory process or upon any constitutional or other legal right or privilege of such person. No objection which is not raised by such a petition may be urged in the defense to a proceeding initiated by the Commission under subsection (b) for enforcement of such a demand unless such proceeding is commenced by the Commission prior to the expiration of the twenty-day period, or unless the court determines that the defendant could not reasonably have been aware of the availability of such ground of objection.

(d) In any proceeding brought by the Commission under subsection (b), except as provided in subsection (c) of this section, the defendant may petition the court for an order modifying or setting aside the demand of the Commission.

SEC. 711.

(b) A willful violation of this section shall be punishable by a fine of not more than $100 for each separate offense.

VETERANS' PREFERENCE
SEC. 712. Nothing contained in this title shall be construed to repeal or modify any Federal, State, territorial, or local law creating special rights or preference for veterans.

RULES AND REGULATIONS
SEC. 713. (a) The Commission shall have authority from time to time to issue, amend, or rescind suitable procedural regulations to carry out the provisions of this title. Regulations issued under this section shall be in conformity with the standards and limitations of the Administrative Procedure Act.

(b) In any action or proceeding based on any alleged unlawful employment practice, no person shall be subject to any liability or punishment for or on account of (1) the commission by such person of an unlawful employment practice if he pleads and proves that the act or omission complained of was in good faith, in conformity with, and in reliance on any written interpretation or opinion of the Commission, or (2) the failure of such person to publish and file any information required by any provision of this title if he pleads and proves that he failed to publish and file such information in good faith, in conformity with the instructions of the Commission issued under this title regarding the filing of such information. Such a defense, if established, shall be a bar to the action or proceeding, notwithstanding that (A) after such act or omission, such interpretation or opinion is modified or rescinded or is determined by judicial authority to be invalid or of no legal effect, or (B) after publishing or filing the description and annual reports, such publication or filing is determined by judicial authority not to be in conformity with the requirements of this title.

FORCIBLY RESISTING THE COMMISSION OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES

The President shall invite the participation in such conference or conferences of (1) the members of the President's Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity, (2) the members of the Commission on Civil Rights, (3) representatives of State and local agencies engaged in furthering equal employment opportunity, (4) representatives of private agencies engaged in furthering equal employment opportunity, and (5) representatives of employers, labor organizations, and employment agencies who will be subject to this title.

SEC. 902. Whenever an action has been commenced in any court of the United States seeking relief from the denial of equal protection of the laws under the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution on account of race, color, religion, or national origin, the Attorney General for or in the name of the United States may intervene in such action upon timely application if the Attorney General certifies that the case is of general public importance.

TITLE X--ESTABLISHMENT OF COMMUNITY RELATIONS SERVICE
SEC. 1001. (a) There is hereby established in and as a part of the Department of Commerce a Community Relations Service (hereinafter referred to as the "Service"), which shall be headed by a Director who shall be appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate for a term of four years. The Director is authorized to appoint, subject to the civil service laws and regulations, such other personnel as may be necessary to enable the Service to carry out its functions and duties, and to fix their compensation in accordance with the Classification Act of 1949, as amended. The Director is further authorized to procure services as authorized by section 15 of the Act of August 2, 1946 (60 Stat. 810; 5 U.S.C. 55(a)), but at rates for individuals not in excess of $75 per diem.

It shall be the function of the Service to provide assistance to communities and persons therein in resolving disputes, disagreements, or difficulties relating to discriminatory practices based on race, color, or national origin which impair the rights of persons in such communities under the Constitution or laws of the United States or which affect or may affect interstate commerce. The Service may offer its services in cases of such disputes, disagreements, or difficulties whenever, in its judgment, peaceful relations among the citizens of the community involved are threatened thereby, and it may offer its services either upon its own motion or upon the request of an appropriate State or local official or other interested person.

SEC. 1003. (a) The Service shall, whenever possible, in performing its functions, seek and utilize the cooperation of appropriate State or local, public, or private agencies.

(b) The activities of all officers and employees of the Service in providing conciliation assistance shall be conducted in confidence and without publicity, and the Service shall hold confidential any information acquired in the regular performance of its duties upon the understanding that it would be so held. No officer or employee of the Service shall engage in the performance of investigative or prosecuting functions of any department or agency in any litigation arising out of a dispute in which he acted on behalf of the Service.

Upon conviction, the accused shall not be fined more than $1,000 or imprisoned for more than six months.

This section shall not apply to contempts committed in the presence of the court, or so near thereto as to obstruct the administration of justice, nor to the misbehavior, misconduct, or disobedience of any officer of the court in respect to writs, orders, or process of the court. No person shall be convicted of criminal contempt hereunder unless the act or omission constituting such contempt shall have been intentional, as required in other cases of criminal contempt.

Nor shall anything herein be construed to deprive courts of their power, by civil contempt proceedings, without a jury, to secure compliance with or to prevent obstruction of, as distinguished from punishment for violations of, any lawful writ, process, order, rule, decree, or command of the court in accordance with the prevailing usages of law and equity, including the power of detention.

SEC. 1102. No person should be put twice in jeopardy under the laws of the United States for the same act or omission. For this reason, an acquittal or conviction in a prosecution for a specific crime under the laws of the United States shall bar a proceeding for criminal contempt, which is based upon the same act or omission and which arises under the provisions of this Act; and an acquittal or conviction in a proceeding for criminal contempt, which arises under the provisions of this Act, shall bar a prosecution for a specific crime under the laws of the United States based upon the same act or omission.

SEC. 1104. Nothing contained in any title of this Act shall be construed as indicating an intent on the part of Congress to occupy the field in which any such title operates to the exclusion of State laws on the same subject matter, nor shall any provision of this Act be construed as invalidating any provision of State law unless such provision is inconsistent with any of the purposes of this Act, or any provision thereof.

SEC. 1105. There are hereby authorized to be appropriated such sums as are necessary to carry out the provisions of this Act.

SEC. 1106. If any provision of this Act or the application thereof to any person or circumstances is held invalid, the remainder of the Act and the application of the provision to other persons not similarly situated or to other circumstances shall not be affected thereby.

Approved July 2, 1964.

She's not our "sisterfriend." She's confused as to WHO she is, like 3/4 of the country these days. She suffers from racial confusion, others suffer from genitalia confusion, others suffer from drug confusion. There are probably about 20 people out of 300 million working with a full deck on a good day.

The people living in "America" have lost their minds, if they ever had them. These days, it's debatable.

Rachel Dolezal’s Memoir Details Ways She Tried to Become Black: I Rubbed Mud on Myself

Rachel Dolezal went viral two years ago when a reporter confronted her about her race. (Facebook)

Rachel Dolezal continues her crusade to prove she is Black despite being outed as a white woman two years ago by publishing a new book which explains how her perception of race came to be.

An excerpt from the March 28 release “In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World” obtained by the Daily Mail reveals Dolezal would escape her family of “Jesus freaks” by reading her grandmother’s National Geographic magazines and learning about Blackness.

“I would pretend to be a dark-skinned princess in the Sahara Desert or one of the Bantu women living in the Congo,” Dolezal wrote. “Imagining I was a different person living in a different place was one of the few ways … that I could escape the oppressive environment I was raised in.”

Part of that environment, Dolezal said, was the housework her parents instructed her to do that she compared to “the institution of chattel slavery in America.”

Dolezal, the former Spokane, Wash., NAACP head, rose to prominence in 2015 when her parents confirmed she was a white woman who had been masquerading as Black for years. Dolezal explained it away in her book by saying she “consciously maintained some warmth of color in my skin … through sunbathing or bronzer sprays” after being identified as Black by others.

 
Rachel Dolezal announced her book deal last year. (BenBella Books)

Despite losing her NAACP job and being unable to get a new one, the 40-year-old wrote, “Living as a Black woman made my life infinitely better. It also made it infinitely harder, thanks to other people’s racist perceptions of me.”

Dolezal said she split from her first husband, Kevin Moore, in 2004 after she became “‘a little too Black” and decided to wear her so-called Blackness publicly.

“I was a Black-Is-Beautiful, Black liberation movement, fully conscious, woke soul sista,” she wrote. “Finally allowed to blossom, I blossomed fast.”

She also shared, “I felt less like I was adopting a new identity and more like I was unveiling one that had been there all along. Finally able to embrace my true self, I allowed the little girl I’d colored with a brown crayon so long ago to emerge.”

In her epilogue, Dolezal, who claimed she could relate to the fictional Miss Jane Pittman novel about the struggles of Black life, wrote “I wasn’t passing as Black,” she wrote. “I was Black and there was no going back.”

 

Online, the reaction was largely unfavorable and mocking.

guys you don't get it Rachel Dolezal drew a picture of herself with a brown crayon once, so she understands the Black American experience

 

 

I love Rachel Dolezal. She stands firm in her crazy. She makes me laugh.

 

 

Rachel Dolezal is releasing her memoirs and in it she compares her upbringing as a pale blonde girl in Montana to slavery. Bitch bye.

 

 

 

 

Some questioned the dislike for Dolezal and defended her.

Y'all let Drake be transcarribean but said Rachel Dolezal can't be a black woman? LMAOOOO

 

 

Black Twitter makes fun of Rachel Dolezal while still listening to everything Shaun King (another White person pretending to be Black) says

  •  


Hey one-way trans-black sista RachelD, doing the dishes after dinner at your  house is not the same as chattel slavery. One-way RachelD wants to personally pass over to my team while her  team will not allow me to politically pass over to them.  Rules. D-o- le-zal, rules! Stop clowning a moment and visit your all white side awhile - and make a big, big  shouting deal out of that for a long, long fucking time?!!  A  "Kinda-Sista" official black community diploma  can be considered then.

An insane white woman!! There are plenty from where she comes. Right now, we have enough problems dealing with the cinnamon toast bun in the White's House. He's revving up to send mothers' sons and daughters home in coffins fighting war for him in Iran.

Why don't all these so-called RICH bastards send THEIR OWN kids to fight the wars they conjure up?????? Better yet, send some Count Basie music over there. Invite them all to listen to some SMOOTH JAZZ. It damn sure works for ME!!!!!!

  She now identifies as Nkechi Diallo.  Po' thang.  She is trying so hard to be black and yet we are targeted by those like her.  Speaking of Howard, this reminds of what just happened at Morehouse.  Just think.  If more African American billionaires, millionaires, thousandairs, and even hundredairs,  support their community in the way that this man did[this includes Oprah]?  can you imagine the growth we would see In our culture.  He planted a seed.  And that's what its all about.  What ever seed that's planted....it doesn't matter as long as it has the potential to grow....tree-like and expand what's planted throughout the world.  [Africa is already replanting.]  Cuz the truth is?  We CAN take care of our OWN.  But!   

Oprah's too busy taking care of Africa's girls; she doesn't give two shits about Africa's slave cast-offs.

On this contraption was a story about heaps of so-called "Blacks" living in tents on the streets of California. Evidently no one gives two shits about them either.

I suppose "Black" women are hopping all up on the Abortion bandwagon. Here's a hint to everyone "Black" living in Amerigo Vespucci land:  STOP FUCKING if this is the best "Black' people can do. We can't help each other, can't wash your butts, but can buy $500 wigs and weaves. When your ass gets buried, your hair will look good as you're decomposing away. You just won't smell good, and will look kind of bony,'tis all!!!!!
