Someday Everyone Will Be a Victim for 15 Minutes

Watching the crash, burn and phoenix-like resurrection of Rachel Dolezal got me thinking about Warhol’s 15 Minutes quote. Seen from a completely objective perspective, Dolezal discovered fame and success by pretending to be black. At first there may have simply been an assumption she was black made by those working with her on African-American issues, but over time Dolezal began lying about her race and background. The more successful she became, the bigger the lies became, and the more prominent her African-American features became as well. Like many con artists before her the lie took over her life and it almost reached the point where she believed it herself.

But the fact that when asked point blank about whether her parents were correct and she was white, she didn’t deny it – proving that she hadn’t completely let go of reality. She knew she was white and she knew she was lying.

As the scandal blew up and Dolezal became an Internet joke, she had two choices. She could take responsibility for her actions and start living truthfully again, or she could take the escape route raised by the Right comparing her case to Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner. She chose the latter and claimed she was transracial.

Since the interview where she claimed she “identified” as black, story after story has emerged of her playing the victim. A victim of spousal abuse. A victim of a pedophile brother. A victim of racist parents. Again, from a rational perspective it makes sense for her to go this route because it is a lot easier to claim the mantle of “victim” than it is to ask forgiveness and atone for her lies and petty crimes. Our current leftist-dominated society that elevates victimhood to a kind of unquestioned secular sainthood has made it all the easier for her to take this route.

But don’t be fooled. She is as much a victim as any petty thief caught with stolen goods in the trunk of his car. While the Left might accept labeling her a victim, I’d be curious to see how the African-American community feels about such a label being applied. Would they see her as a victim or as just another example of a white person getting away with something they could not, a Left wing White Privilege?

    My grandchildren (one age 9, the other age 11) while reading the Sunday newspaper this past weekend ran across Rachel Dolezal’s photograph and blasted her as a “fake Black lady.”

    Some would call them racist, but in the words of racists themselves, “They can’t be racist, they’re Black.” They are merely speaking the truth.
