Everyone’s talking about NAACP chapter president Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who has been pretending to be Black for almost 10 years. What do you think of the story?
In this video, Kat Blaque clears up what being transracial really means, why it has nothing to do with Rachel Dolezal, and why it’s inaccurate – and hugely offensive – to compare Dolezal to Caitlyn Jenner or any transgender woman.
Kat knows what it means to be trans, and what it really means to be Black (unlike Dolezal), so tune into her smart message and spread the word.
