  • Transracial?

    Has anyone seen any of the news concerning the president of the NAACP in Spokane Washington, who's recently been outed for misrepresenting herself as a black woman, and a victim of numerous hate crimes (including burglary, nooses on her property, and letters that she herself has apparently been placing in the PO box of her own NAACP chapter)?

    What are people's thoughts about this. Do you think there's any corollary between this sort of reidentification and that of the transgender community?

            That's racist! I am reporting you to the oriental anti-defamation league.

                  I always wanted to be Italian. Oh wait, I am... Maybe I could be Polish? It's so hard deciding what to be!

                        Vulcans are cool - but I can't do that finger spread thing! Life is so unfair!

                            Yes! But don't Vulcans only have sex once every six years? I'm not liking this!

                              Just more proof - the world is an insane asylum, and its run by the inmates.
