Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
White, Jewish girl from Kansas City pretends to be Black girl from the ‘hood, for her entire career.
She has a Ph.D. from U-W, Madison. Figures.
What do you bet she rode the Affirmative Action express all the way up? “Black” woman applying to college and then to grad school – guaranteed admission. “Black” woman doing “research” for a Ph.D – easier grading, more help, less criticism. “Black” woman academic with excellent grades applying to be college professor – the script writes itself.
The news story compares her to Rachel Dolezal, the White woman who pretended to be Black to get a white-collar job (running a branch office of the NAACP). True, but oddly, the story makes no mention of Elizabeth Warren, the White woman who pretended to be an American Indian so she could ride the Affirmative Action escalator into a professorship at Harvard.
That’s all fine, this woman confessed, she’s out in the open, and then . . . well, then what? The college says they can’t comment on personnel matters, which implies she’s still working there. She didn’t quit? She didn’t give back the job she gained under false pretenses, the money that should have gone to another, more morally deserving person?
I see the confession . . . where’s the penance?
Penance is a form of white supremacy.
Haven’t you been paying attention, Joe?
