what a tangled web she braids

Rachael Dolezal, the white woman caught masquerading as a black woman who ignited a national debate about race, has kept a relatively low profile since her fall last year.

But this weekend she will headline the Naturally Isis Braid-On, Economic Liberty March and Rally in Dallas, Texas. Dolezal was invited by Isis Brantley, a celebrity stylist, natural hair activist, and owner of the Institute of Ancestral Braiding…

    Discredited Leftists never go away. They just lay low for a month or two, then come back as if nothing ever happened.

    I agree that braiding hair ought not to be a .gov-approved activity; obviously even the almighty .gov cannot convince them they are causing their own alopecia. *eyeroll*

    Other than that — thanx for the “improved racial relations,” Obobobobobobo!

    WTF? Does one need a PhD in bovine scatology to work at the “Institute”??

    In the early 70′s, I worked and traveled seven months in South Africa and surrounding countries, and never once saw an Afro or rasta braids. I thought rasta braids were a Caribbean island thing, not African. Kim dT might correct me for being a provincial come here to his homeland, but the only braids I saw were made of string and red clay for festive occasions.
    I’m tired of African this that and the other. What would a black person call him/herself if born in Sweden? Afrikanska-Swede?
    In Germany? Afrikanische-Deutsch?
    Under that standard, I’m an Anglo-American, and I want some set asides. Those founders dead white guys persecuted Englishmen.

    I have a sister-in-law originally from Jamaica. My nephew had corn-rows until he was 3 as per the custom there. Caribbean islands are definitely big on the braids.

    On a side note, my nephew gets downright testy when someone refers to him as African-American since he was born right here.

    Isn’t that cultural appropriation?

    From reading National Geographic in the 50′s and 60′s, I learned that in Mother Africa, clay and cow dung were used in getting yer hair did.

    I’m all for it.

    As a proud Dutch-American, I’m still waiting for my reparations from England for the Boer war.
    Also- hot cocoa is cultural appropriation.
