Lessons on Picking Your Identity

The City of Spokane is investigating a critical matter, and the outcome should be black and white. The president of the city’s NAACP chapter likely violated the city’s code of ethics because she’s actually white. Rachel Dolezal identifies as African-American and has even modified her appearance accordingly. She’s also claimed to be the victim of several “hate” crimes. But public records indicate she and both of her parents are white. The obvious comparison is Bruce Jenner, the former male Olympic decathlon champion who now says he’s a woman. Many leftists gladly accepted him as a her, even giving him awards for “courage.” But while Jenner is affirmed, Dolezal has committed an unforgivable sin by doing pretty much the same thing. Perhaps a less obvious comparison is the example of a prominent man who has a white mother and black father (who abandoned him early on), and yet who identifies solely by the race of his father — well, unless his Irish ancestry happens to be politically beneficial. Any guesses who that might be? Identity sure is an interesting thing with liberal social mores.
