She wanted an advantage she got by portraying herself as black. That's pretty immoral.

What advantage did she get? I am genuinely curious. I haven't followed the story that closely.

She got to claim minority experiences, suffering, trials and tribulations, etc. In an organization that focuses on those very topics, it gives her a credibility and insight she didn't actually have.

I'm fairly certain it is an unspoken requirement to be an ethnic minority to be in the NAACP. The one person the media has tried to use to negate this isn't white, but jewish.

It is a huge can of worms. If discussion opens up that claims that it is socially acceptable to identify as a different race based on identity claims/experiences, then who's to say it is wrong for, say, a white or asian student claiming that they are black (because they identify as black) on college applications?

If I were a successful white/asian senior high school student, I would probably love to claim to identify as black when I apply for different colleges on my applications. Not only would I have better chances of getting in, some colleges would even throw money at me to attend their school.

That is just one of the issues in the can of worms Rachel D. is holding, especially with her affiliation with the NAACP.

I heard a law professor speaking about the advantage and they implied the position she filled was designed for an ethnically diverse candidate. I wish I had the quote because the professor made it sound more business like and less race based while being race based and PC at the same time. If that makes sense. I'll try to find it or better context if I can...

She also said she lived in a teepee and hunted for food with bows and arrows. Sorry for the breitbart link, it's just the most concise, I read elsewhere that her parents in fact did that but before she was born

She's a outrageous liar using other people's lives to gain advantage, that's the big deal in my opinion.

I'm just amazed she isn't claiming to be native due to that.

Wait, I thought being non-white was a disadvantage. How did she get an advantage?

Also, pretty sure she got a minority scholarship.

So an organization dedicated to the advancement of black people is getting rid of someone who thought it was better to be black than white?

I think that's mischaracterizing the incident. The problem is her lying about it, as I'm sure you know.

So, does no one find relevant the fact that she's a blatant liar? Perhaps the NAACP wishes not to be represented by someone who lied to them as well as the rest of the world, someone who pressured her own family to help maintain her lie.
