Rachel Anne Dolezal (born November 12, 1977), also known as Nkechi Amare Diallo, is an American woman known for identifying and passing as a black woman while being of European ancestry and may have some verifiable African ancestry. She is a former college instructor and National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter president.
Few years ago, when Rachel Anne Dolezal claimed to be black, eyebrows where raised, questions asked, investigations done probably, and even criminally charged for fraudulently passing as “black”, though her “white” features are glaringly visible.
Today, we have a public figure in the person of A O Cortez laying a much more greater claim to “being black” for the entire “Latino” racial coloratura/heritage. This to me, is an interesting development because, if AOC is not charged with fraud on this instance, then Rachel deserves to b compensated by the DOJ for injustice.
This is so because, we all have the right and justification to claim any heritage as long as it doesn’t offend; just as I can claim to be a son of God.🤷♀️
