    After Rachel Dolezal – who first made news in 2015 when it was revealed she had been pretending to be black for nearly a decade – there have been a slew of race fakers in the US.

    Benton only apologized after her racial history was exposed on the website BlackIndyLIVE.com. Laron Anderson, the website’s editor-in-chief, said that there had been too many suspicions about Benton’s real racial status. She had claimed her father was black. Benton was also active in the LGBTQ community.

    Similarly, George Washington University Black Studies professor Jessica Krug, also claimed she was black. In fact, Krug deceived friends and colleagues by falsely claiming several non-white identities, including “North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness,” she noted on Medium. Krug has recently admitted that she was white and Jewish.

    Hari Ziyad, the black online editor of RaceBaitr, had defended Krug earlier, before she was exposed as a fake. After Krug’s mendacity was exposed, Ziyad tweeted. “I always knew there was something off. It was in her persistent negativity and jealousy, her always needing to prove her authenticity at the expense of everything else.”

    Another race faker, white graduate student CV Vitolo-Haddad, had to resign from her teaching position at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for faking her racial identity, The Post Millennial reported. The academic with Sicilian roots has since declared that race is a “social construct rife with contradictions”.

    Dolezal incidentally claims she still identifies as black because “race is a social construct” despite the backlash she has received from especially African Americans. She explained her switch in identity – from white to black – as the result of her “decolonised mind”. Dolezal was forced to step down from her post at Spokane’s NAACP.

      Satchuel Cole?? She must have worked all day thinking that up. The reddish-brown hair dye and the Bain de Soleil make her look more like an aspiring plus-size model than a real black woman. This kind of self-hatred seems more common among women than men.
