When will the Anglican Church stop discriminating against the transracial community?

According to this woman, the “idea of race is a lie”. As usual, the Anglican Church of Canada is behind the times and is still dithering about installing transgender toilets; the latest, and undoubtedly the most serious issue to assail the tattered remains of Western Civilisation is transracialism. When will those sluggards in the ACoC catch up?

In all seriousness, this is good news for most of us, since we can all self-identify as Aboriginal and claim compensation from the ACoC for decades of residential school abuse.

Rachel Dolezal – the white US woman who said she was black – says “the idea of race is a lie”.

Speaking in an interview with Emily Maitlis, she argued that the concept of “transracial” – similar to that of transgender – is useful in describing people such as herself.

Rachel Dolezal has just written a book about her experience, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.

  1. As our beloved compatriots Fred Hiltz and Michael Curry appear to endorse self identified trans persons and seem to agree with the claims of gender fluidity. (I believe the number of genders is 52 and growing all the time.) They must, therefore accept Rachel Dolezal’s suggestion of a “self identified” race. Both hierarchies of the Anglican and Episcopal Churches accept postmodernists views on gender so I assume that they also accept the view regarding race as a social construct. Why not?

  2. By chance I caught Dolezal talking with Piya Chattopadhyay on CBC Radio yesterday. As I was concentrating on driving through a torrential rainstorm, I made the mistake of not changing channels right away.

    It was drivel. Dolezal is obviously on the promotion circuit for her book.

    However, I must admit I don’t much care one way or the other if the woman wishes to be considered black. A non-issue for me so fill your boots, Rachel. But Dolezal seemed to want to blame everyone but herself for her current predicament; I couldn’t help thinking of Sir Walter Scott’s old line: “Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!”

    The concluding remarks by Chattopadhyay were a collective absurdity of notions and nostrums about race.
