Imagine all the folks of color over the years who walked away from interactions with her and were like “something is off here” and were ignored.
“To an escalating degree over my adult life, I have eschewed my lived experience as a white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City under various assumed identities within a Blackness that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness” — WOW one identity wasn’t enough? What would be her next one????
ALSO how many folks were denied grants, positions, etc because this asshole was building a career on lies.
And ... like there are no repercussions really here. She’s not going to be required to give her salary back. She’ll probably make bank on a talk show circuit or another book about her experiences and “growth.”
