It is unethical and inhumane to portray yourself as a African American. And also represent, referred to as Black Americans or Afro-Americans, is an ethnic group of citizens or residents of the United States with total or partial ancestry from any of the native populations of Sub-Saharan Africa. The term may also be used to include only those individuals who are descended from African slaves. It is a fact that Rachael Dolezal is a caucasian woman and is not a descendant from Africa so how can she lead us ? I encourage all to sign this petition and resolve the malicious intent and hidden agenda to tear apart the African American communities . Tanning your skin , getting a curly wig and listening to hip hop does not make you black she does not know a black woman's everyday struggle and how a black woman is looked down upon. Let's not forget this lady sent herself hate mail for a attention , would it be acceptable for a black woman to portray herself as a caucasian woman ?
