I don't know spiritually and metaphysically how this goes, but I do know that from my earliest memories I have awareness and connection with the black experience, and that's never left me. It's not something that I can put on and take off anymore. Like I said, I've had my years of confusion and wondering who I really was and why and how do I live my life and make sense of it all, but I'm not confused about that any longer. I think the world might be; but I'm not.
- Still identifies as black but acknowledges she is not African American.
-Recently got a traffic ticket and the police officer marked her as being black, without even asking.
-Thinks its all one big misunderstanding. Wishes she could explain her "complicated childhood" so that people can understand her and her love for black people. She thinks people would have forgiven her if she revealed herself earlier.
-Claims members of the NAACP in Spokane have been in touch with her to check in and says many are supportive of her. But she lost a shit ton of friends.
-Since she got fired she makes money by doing braids and weaves, claims she has appointments 3x a week. Studied and taught about black hair for years.
-Wants to write a book to explain herself and wants to be involved again in the racial social justice movement.
ONTD, would you pay Rachel do your box braids and sew ins?
OMG MODS, sorry for all the errors. LJ has been a hot mess for me lately! :O
