Rachel Dolezal has a new documentary coming to Netflix and her son, Franklin Moore is NOT here for it. Apparently, neither is anyone else.

Rachel Dolezal has more than benefitted from the labor of Black bodies that she has exploited, yet she is continuously given a platform that she does not deserve. As one of the many people she indirectly exploited with her actions, this is bullshit.

Oh hell no! When PERFORMING blackness gets more attention than actually BEING BLACK https://t.co/2H8oTqFLPQ

“This book coming out, and this documentary might just backfire like everything else has backfired,” Moore said in the trailer for The Rachel Divide. Dolezal released a book in 2016 called In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.
Moore also added, “I resent some of her choices, and I resent some of the words she’s spoken in interviews … It affected me, it affected my brother.”
The former branch president of the NAACP in Spokane, Washington who still identifies as “trans-black” responded to her son, arguing that he shouldn’t take away her hope. Moore fired back saying, “Trust me, it is going to bite me in the a–.”
At a time where actual black women are fighting to be paid fairly from Netflix, this causes us to wonder how much money they are paying Dolezal, in comparison to what was offered to Mo’Nique. The company set themselves up for backlash with this one.
