Documentary About White Woman Who “Identifies” As Black Woman Receives Backlash

News For You

Yall remember Rachel Dolezal? She’s the woman who was the head of an NAACP chapter for quite some time who managed to convince people she was a black woman… then she was “outed” as actually a white woman.

This alone received a backlash of epic proportions. Now, some nimrods decided creating a documentary about her story would be a good idea… enter backlash.

“At the end of the day, #RachelDolezal was able to secure a Netflix special because of her white privilege,” wrote one Twitter user Thursday.

“It’s VERY important that we DO NOT watch @netflix #RachelDolezal doc,” chimed another. “We can’t give validity to her ‘plight.’ We vote w/ our views & $, even if you want to hate watch, it would ultimately justify Netflix giving her a voice. She could’ve been an ally w/o appropriating. Do better.”

“Sick to death of #RachelDolezal and apparently her kid is too,” added a Twitter user. “I understand that the documentary is a way to ‘explore the conversation’… but is this a ‘transracism’ and conversation we need to have?!!!”

Her OWN SON has even criticized her for embracing the attention.

“I really do not want to focus on this for the rest of my life,” he said in the clip. “Why don’t you just let it go away?… This is going to affect more than just your life.”

He then tells the camera, “I resent some of her choices and I resent some of the words she’s spoken in interviews… The more that I hear about it, the more that I talk to people about it, the more that it drains me.”

This load of garbage will be released at the end of April… but given that Netflix may be given the Obamas their own show… I’m not sure if I’ll keep my account.
