😂😂 You can only laugh about these people who make their living of racebaiting - have no sympathy for them. Just leeching of the system and benefitting of the racial tensions in the US. #racheldolezal #racheldolezalbelike #naacp #racebaiter #racebaiting #cucks #identity #identify #breitbart #news #breitbartnews

Remember Rachel Dolezal? Jobless and nearly homeless two years after her scandal, the former NAACP Chapter President who pretended to be black regrets... nothing. Read the update to her ongoing story at PerezHilton.com, or go here: https://goo.gl/DK0bqp

@Regrann from @balleralert - Rachel Dolezal Is Jobless & Nearly Homeless After Years Of Pretending To Be Black - blogged by: @eleven8

The ghosts of black ancestors past may have come down and ruined #RachelDolezal’s life after she pretended to be African American with lies about her upbringing, bad weaves, and a fake son.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The former leader of Spokane’s #NAACP chapter, stepped down from her position in 2015 after her parents revealed that she was actually a white woman who did not have a black father who fled the south after he assaulted a police officer, was not born in a teepee in Montana where she had to live off the land, did not get beaten by her mother with a bamboo like a slave, and was not receiving racist hate mail (she actually sent the hate mail to herself). During that time, it was also revealed that Dolezal, a professor of Africana studies, once attempted to sue Howard University, where she studied, because she felt they discriminated against her for being white. Since these facts came to light, Dolezal’s life has not been the same.

Dolezal reveals that she is now out of work and after applying to at least 100 jobs, no one will hire her. She says she currently relies on food stamps to feed her family. A friend helped her pay her rent this month, but she could quite possibly be homeless next month. Dolezal says she applied for a position at the university where she used to teach but was interviewed by former colleagues who pretended to have no recollection of having ever met her.

“Right now the only place that I feel understood and completely accepted is with my kids and my sister,” Dolezal tells #TheGuardian.

Dolezal, who says she identifies as African-American because race is “not coded in your DNA,” is set to drop her memoir, “In Full Color,” in March. The book was originally passed on by over 30 publishers before one actually picked it up. Could this be what finally sets Dolezal on track financially? - #regrann #Mediaoutrage

#RachelDolezal, the former ​#NAACP leader who resigned after it came to light that she was falsely presenting herself as black, is jobless and may soon be homeless.

_______________________________

In an interview with The Guardian, ​#Dolezal said the only work she's been offered is in reality TV and pornography. Although she’s applied for 100 jobs, she told The Guardian that no one will hire her and she's currently on food stamps and may soon be homeless. “Right now the only place that I feel understood and completely accepted is with my kids and my sister," she told The Guardian.
​_______________________________

The 39-year-old was swept into the national spotlight in 2015 after her parents, who are white, stepped forward and said Dolezal was not black. While the NAACP stressed that its organization includes white leaders, critics slammed Dolezal for presenting herself as black when she was actually white.

She said her hair style and tanned skin led people to believe she was black, and she didn't correct them. ​_______________________________

Dolezal still believes that race is a social construct. “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white’. Because you know, I’m not white,” she said.

She told the newspaper she believes there is a black and white side on issues ranging from politics to social and cultural issues. “There’s a perspective, there’s a mentality, there’s a culture,” she said. “To say that I’m black is to say, this is how I see the world, this is the philosophy, the history, this is what I love and what I honor. Calling myself black feels more accurate than saying I’m white.”
​_______________________________

Dolezal told The Guardian her struggle with race goes back to childhood, when she remembers using brown crayons to depict herself in drawings. She said she wasn’t able to embrace her true race until after she divorced her husband. “For the first time in my life, I really decided consciously to be free from the repression, and free from feeling like I had to do things in a way that was acceptable to other people,” she told The Guardian. “I had the courage to be exactly who I was.”

authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we're suppose to be and embracing who we actually are. #Me #TheReal #NAACP

The teen was moved to dig up footage on Yiannopoulos when she heard that he’d been invited to speak at the highest profile gathering of conservatives each year in America, the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). She defines herself as “very socially liberal,” but leans right on economics and foreign policy. Yiannopoulos, who has built his personal brand on anti-Muslim, anti-feminism, and general bigotry, exemplifies the place where she doesn’t believe the conservative movement should go.
“I see Milo as this embodiment of the awfulness you see over the past few years with the general tilt of millennial conservatism,” said the teen. “It’s diverged from this traditional conservatism so much. You’ve seen it essentially become full of awfulness and all about attacking the left and not about actual principles. It has nothing to do with conservative ideology so much as it has with opposing the leftists, SJWs, and so on and so forth.”
Within days of his old statements coming to light, Yiannopoulos lost his spot at CPAC, his book deal, and his job at the ultra-conservative website Breitbart.
I am keeping the teen’s name and social media accounts out of the story because of her and her parents’ request to protect her safety, and will only refer to her as “Julia.” But we have confirmed her identity and her communications with the conservative blog that resurfaced the Yiannopoulos tape for a wide audience.
Many critics have tried and failed to take Yiannopoulos down, from feminists to other liberals who despise his bigoted messages. But those efforts only buoyed his appeal among his fan base on the far right, rocketing his profile among movements like the alt-right, a far-right fringe movement that spouts white nationalist ideals and opposes social liberalism. But this 16-year-old helped take Yiannopoulos down by managing to get not just the left angry at him, but the right as well. @voxdotcom

Day 28 💖 Roslyn Brock, chairman of the NAACP. She is the youngest person to ever hold the position and the 4th woman with the title. The board unanimously voted for her back in 2001 as VP and by 2010 she was elected chairperson. She graduated magna cum laude with a bachelors degree and holds 3 (!) masters degrees. She is incredibly intelligent, charismatic, and passionate about her cause. ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 and just remember, especially you white folks--it is OKAY to celebrate people of color. I repeat. It is OKAY to celebrate people of color. And we should be doing so all year around, not just through one given month. I hope you learned a thing or two this month 😉 I know I did!

We don't want to close out Black History Month without paying tribute to lawyer, civil rights activist, and politician Cecil B. Moore (1915-1979). Moore's clients in his legal field included poor African Americans. During his civil rights activism, he fought for integration in Girard College. He also fought for integration in labor unions and schools. He served as president of the Philadelphia chapter of the NAACP. Then he served in the Philadelphia City Council representing the 5th District from 1975 until his death in 1979. #CecilBMoore #NAACP #PhiladelphiaCityCouncil #BlackLawyers #BlacksInPolitics #BlacksInGovernment #CivilRights #CivilRightsActivists #SocialJustice #PhiladelphiaHistory #PhiladelphiaPolitics #BlackHistory #BlackHistoryMonth

Thurgood Marshall was the first African American ever to serve on the Court. Marshall graduated from Lincoln University in 1930 and applied to University of Maryland Law School but was turned down because of his race. He then attended Howard University Law School, though his mother had to pawn her wedding and engagement rings to pay the tuition. He graduated first in his class in 1933, just as America was feeling the full impact of the Great Depression. As soon as he graduated, Marshall opened a law office in Baltimore, and the following year he represented the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in a suit challenging the University of Maryland Law School's policy of segregation. He won the case, and Marshall was brought onto the national staff of the NAACP in 1936, becoming the organization's chief legal counsel in 1940. He remained with the NAACP for a total of 25 years and served as its key strategist in the legal effort to end racial segregation throughout American society. In a series of federal court cases, Marshall and his mentor, Charles Hamilton Houston, set out to reverse segregation sanctioned by the Supreme Court's decision in Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). Since that decision had called for "separate but equal" institutions for blacks and whites, the NAACP argued that institutions for African Americans were not equal to the parallel institutions for whites. A series of decisions ruled in favor of the NAACP, and, beginning in 1945, Marshall began challenging the Plessy doctrine itself. This ultimately led to the landmark case of Brown v. Board of Education, which Marshall successfully argued before the Supreme Court in 1952 and again in 1953. The resulting Court decision overturned the Plessy doctrine of "separate but equal," agreeing that students' self-esteem was harmed by the mere fact of segregation. While the decision applied only to segregation in public education, it set the stage for the civil rights movement. Marshall prevailed in 29 of the 32 cases he argued before the Supreme Court.

Don't we all? 😥👊

This is why we will never get free. The Black Pastor's, Educator's, NAACP, etc are all too busy trying to suck up to our oppressers. #naacp #blackchurch #blackpasters #hbcu

An image of Juanita J. Craft, a civil rights activist and leader in the civil rights movement in Texas. She and Lulu Belle White of Houston organized 182 branches of the NAACP in Texas over 11 years. She was also the first Black woman to vote in Dallas County, Texas. #naacp #blackhistory #civilrights #socialjustice #voting #blackgirlsrock

For many African Americans growing up in the South in the 19th and 20th centuries, the threat of lynching was commonplace. The popular image of an angry white mob stringing a black man up to a tree is only half the story. Lynching, an act of terror meant to spread fear among blacks, served the broad social purpose of maintaining white supremacy in the economic, social and political spheres.
Lynchings were covered in local newspapers with headlines spelling out the horrific details. Photos of victims, with exultant white observers posed next to them, were taken for distribution in newspapers or on postcards. Body parts, including genitalia, were sometimes distributed to spectators or put on public display. Most infractions were for petty crimes, like theft, but the biggest one of all was looking at or associating with white women. Many victims were black businessmen or black men who refused to back down from a fight. Headlines such as the following were not uncommon:
"Five White Men Take Negro Into Woods; Kill Him: Had Been Charged with Associating with White Women" went over The Associated Press wires about a lynching in Shreveport, Louisiana.
"Negro Is Slain By Texas Posse: Victim's Heart Removed After His Capture By Armed Men" was published in The New York World Telegram on December 8, 1933.
"Negro and White Scuffle; Negro Is Jailed, Lynched" was published in the Atlanta Constitution on July 6, 1933.
Newspapers even printed that prominent white citizens in local towns attended lynchings, and often published victory pictures -- smiling crowds, many with children in tow -- standing next to the corpse.

THE CAPRICORN♑

Skilled, responsible, & sure-footed @iamreginaking is probably one of the best representation of a #Capricorn from the entertainment business. Synonymous with this sign #ReginaKing is hard working, self-reliant, a leader, & professional. Like a typical #Earthsign🌍 she puts in a lot of work that serves as a building block over time. Having worked in 23 movies & 20 TV shows, this woman has quite an extensive resume. In typical #Capricorn fashion, she ensured that she's been recognized for her work too as she's been nominated or won 26+ awards from #BET, #NAACP, #ScreenActorsGuild, #GoldenGlobe, #Satelitte, #PrimetimeEmmy, & #CriticsChoice. Another thing about #Capricorn is that they are socially-conscious & enterprising. Having co-hosted the #BlackGirlsRock initiative & supporter of the #APlaceCalledHome education program, she's been a well-respected philanthropist & change agent.
