Last week the historian Jessica Krug confessed that she had spent years engaged in a racial masquerade, taking on a North African, Black American, and later a Black Caribbean identity when she was in fact a white Jewish woman from Kansas City.Krug’s confession was likely a pre-emptive move because she was about to be exposed. ...Over the course of her life Krug built an identity based on the worst stereotypes, beliefs and supposed dysfunctions of Black and Latinx people. It is bad enough that she pretended to be Black or Latina; worse, she portrayed herself as the daughter of addicts battling overdoses and suicide attempts on the “streets” of the Barrio. She claimed to be the only person in her family to go to college, took on caricaturesque anti-racist stances, and engaged in racist cosplay under the nonsensical name of “Jess La Bombalera.” If anyone questioned her white appearance, she would retort that her mother was a drug-addicted sex worker who her white father had raped. ...And while her performance made her Black and Latinx colleagues uncomfortable, many avoided questioning her because she was prone to level accusations that we were “assimilated” if we did not exhibit the “authentic” culture of our communities or failed to live up to her hyperbolic radical politics. ...Many wonder if she will continue to profit from her minstrelsy by writing a tell-all book, as did Rachel Dolezal.
they resent that she "stole" their "commodity" that, in the present "woke" climate, they can use to advance their /OWN/ careers and agendastheir "true" "identity" has a rising market value, and they bitterly resent that she /SUCCESSFULLY COUNTERFEITED AND SOLD/ "their" commodity
It's all about self-declaration anyway, Nobody checks DNA.
And I bet you it is a lot more common in government, academia, mainstream media, etc. then the media will report ....

It depends on which is the dominant gene,
Yes, but there is no verification process in place, and so anyone can claim anything.
Trans race is a thing now.
Canada's "indigenous health expert" loses her job after it turns out she's a white lady who's been lying about being Native American her whole career
May be schools do not check strictly. Way back, I know someone’s child pretended Mexican heritage despite the fact the father warned him against. At college a clerk asked him, you look like a white 6 ft blue eyes blond hair, are you sure you are Mexican! He said that told them his mother side down some one from Mexico! The Clark kind of smiled at him but did nothing to him.
Mexican is too specific. Hispanic is better.
FuckCCP89 saysMexican is too specific. Hispanic is better.I do not remember exact specific. You should be right that the first ones more of a nationality the second one is ethnicity, race whatever.
Let's educate the best and brightest.
Maybe on loans or scholarships for lying, as that's a form of fraud technically.
WookieMan says Maybe on loans or scholarships for lying, as that's a form of fraud technically."It isn't a lie if you believe it"Turned out Suzanne "My name is Luka" Vega thought she was Mexican for years, apparently her mom left the father when she was an infant and she was told the new dad was her dad. She's really English-Irish. Not a surprise when you see how pale and fair she is."Oh, well I thought I was Cherokee/Mexican/Whatever"
