Rachel Dolezal

Did your hear about Rachel Dolezal? The white lady who claimed to be a black lady.

I don't know if she really believed she was black, but I hope Dalrymple will write about her case... or rather the discussion about the case...

There where people claiming that she wanted to "steal the suffering".

First of all she was of German and Czech heritage. She did not have to steal suffering. She just needs to look up her people's story in a history book.

It's not the point, however.

When did suffering become something to be proud of? There is not a single voice blaming Dolezal of stealing black accomplishment, black culture, black art, whatever, just the suffering.

I think that this is sad, very sad indeed.

There are some interesting parallels with a literary controversy that was quite big news in Australia for a while when I was growing up.
