    Race is real, and nobody anywhere suggests that Asians and Africans are different species'.

    I don't think she has been clever at all. If there is no race, then racially mandated hiring practices like Affirmative Action are groundless. If there is no racial difference between white Rachel Dolezal and black Rachel Dolezal, then there is no racial difference between white Pompey Bum and black Pompey Bum, we may as well be hired on our qualifications. Or if we can self-identify our so-called race, and we are to continue with Affirmative Action, then I'll take the race that gets me the job, please. None of that is what Rachel Dolezal and the NAACP wanted when this blew up in their faces. It is pretty funny, though. It's always funny when liars get busted.

    I agree with you, but then there was the case of Valiant Thor, the Venusian. The U.S. government took him rather seriously for a while.

    So you think she may be cleverer than we have been led to believe from the news. I'd see building a political base as an explanation, but people did that without claiming to have brown skin and kinky hair.

    The whole concept of race is perfectly absurd.

    Real scientists know that there is one race of humans: the human race. Unfortunately, (as my anthropology professor used to put it) there are two kinds of people: Lumpers and Splitters. Splitters would insist that East Asians and sub-Saharan Africans must be of different species.

    Many of us do not accept the abuse of the word "gender" that was done in the late 1970's. Gender is a grammatical class of which there are three in English: Masculine, Feminine, and neuter. Language abuse should be a Capital offense.

    Trump isn't very bright, so such comments about Mexicans do not surprise me. I don't think he follws the news regularly.

    I think that slapping together sexual preference and racial preference was too long a jump.

    Sex is a mater of genes: females have XX sex chromosomes and males have XY; there are rare individuals with a sex chromosome that is not in good for, and those people are something else. People like Jenner have a personality disorder that has been known for decades, but these days the medical people cater to such people.

    There have been leaders of the racial equality movement who were of the pale variety. but they didn't claim to be Black. This women seem s to have a personality disorder.

    As for the Papapam's question, "Is [Donald Trump] even allowed to say that?," yes, the First Amendment of the United States Constitution gives even clowns like Trump the right to express their opinions. It's a great country.

    Well Iain she was visibly black looking enough to pose as a black woman for decades so I think she got the full experience. She may not know what being *poor* is like, but it seems like she probably knows what being black is like.

    I would like to take this opportunity to disclose to the forum that I am not black.

    So far as Rachel Dolezal goes; the former NAACP chapter president is a liar and the notion that someone whose masquerading as a black person and who "identifies" with being black, can in fact *know* what being black is like... is preposterous.
