An Open Letter to Transracial-Rachel
Dear Rachel Dolezal-
Although we’ve never met, you’ve been around me constantly this past week. Your face is on my newsfeed, name on the tip of every tongue I chat with, and your claim to be “transracial” has certainly been all over my head.
I’ve been wanting to write to you, but have no clue what to say. I am not a person of color and therefore can’t appropriately slam your privileged abuse of black features and culture to make your life and career easier, but I will say this:
Before your unreal interview, I never knew how to strategically use the phrase “I don’t understand the question.”
Apparently it is the ultimate way out! The perfect way to play so dumb you don’t have to address anything difficult.
You might not be black, but at least you’re a meme.
