The name Racheal Dolzel may not be familiar to you or you may not recall it. Rachel is the 37 year old white female who is famed for pretending to be black and is now being called a hero by pop singer Rihanna. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair Rihanna rightly asks…’Is it such a horrible thing that she pretended to be black? Black is great thing.’ We couldn’t agree more RiRi.
Rihanna goes on to describe the former NAACP leader as being smart enough to deceive on the masses…’because she kind of flipped on society a little bit,’.
Whilst I agree that the outrage is disproportionate to the lie It is somewhat of an insult to suggest that all it takes to be black is have darker skin and have ‘kinky’ hair. In a clip below Rachel talks about how her hair looks the way it does…though I think we can agree it is pretty obvious.
