The Twittersphere is lit up with #transracial. Why, you ask? Meet Rachel Dolezal, a pasty, white girl of Czech, Swedish and German heritage, with a tiny bit of Native American mixed in. She’s the President of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP. How progressive of them, right? Not so fast. No one had any idea she was white, except of course her parents, who outted her!

According to Mom and Dad, Rachel’s been pretending to be black for nearly 10 years. The “why” is not clear, but you can read between the lines for yourself.

Now the question is… Will we be seeing the Rev. Al Sharpton come out to stand in solidarity and defend her blackness? After all, she’s dedicated her life’s work to civil rights for blacks.

In the meantime, you may want to check out the Twitter feeds for #transracial and #racheldolezal. Some are serious… others are more lighthearted!

Here’s just a few… enjoy…
