Rachel Dolezal, and the hoodie:: Shut up.

Rachel Dolezal
Rachel, you really need to stop. Just stop.

I was going to talk about the H&M scandal, but something far more ugly raised its head in the story. I kind of chalked up the H&M hoodie as being people that had no idea they were doing something racist.
What I have a problem with is Rachel (trans-racial) butting herself into the discussion about race and racist. Did you really need you to make your own hoodie and try to make a buck off this shitstorm?
From Fox News, ((As she explained in the caption, she designed the sweatshirts ─ which initially read “Coolest Prince in the Hood” ─  not only to “counter” H&M’s version, but also because she claims her own biracial son was called a “monkey” back in the second grade, according to a screengrab captured by The Root. ))
This doesn't involve you or your clown-foolery. You don't need to white knight for us, lady. Because she thinks she is being so progressive with this trans-racial shit, she doesn't realize she is just performing another version of blackface. She is just taking it a step further.
I really don't want this trans-racial shit to become a thing, but she keeps popping up like a giant turd that won't flush. Darkening up your skin and curling your hair doesn't make you “part” of the group.
Let's not forget this woman faked her way through life as a black woman and made it all the way to a black organization as a leader. You pretended to be a black woman and lied about being harassed and got caught. It's like the real-life Soul Man movie.  
From Newsweek, (("So, I did a first design in response to H&M's 'Coolest Monkey in the Jungle' shirt that said 'Coolest Prince in the Hood,' because it's a hooded sweatshirt/neighborhood, etc," she wrote. "Some people liked it, some didn't like the word 'hood.'))
