The Rachel Divide: A Documentary About The “Trans-Black” Rachel Dolezal On Netflix
So here we have it, Rachel finally gets to tell her story of being a black woman trapped in a white woman’s body.
(Madamenoire) Nkechi Amare Diallo (fka Rachel Dolezal) will be on your Netflix feed soon because the “trans-black” woman will be featured in a documentary called The Rachel Divide.
We all know Rachel Dolezal. She is the white woman who identifies as black because she feels like a black woman inside (whatever that means). Many have labeled her “crazy,” “mentally unstable,” “a fraud,” and the list goes on and on. But for Dolezal, she says that her identification as a black woman is sincere.
“I do think a more complex label would be helpful, but we don’t really have that vocabulary,” she said. “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white’. Because you know, I’m not white. There is a black side and a white side on all kinds of issues, whether it’s political, social, cultural. There’s a perspective, there’s a mentality, there’s a culture. To say that I’m black is to say, this is how I see the world, this is the philosophy, the history, this is what I love and what I honour. Calling myself black feels more accurate than saying I’m white.”
