Somebody posted a comment I read on a website that if it's not okay for Rachel Dolezal to be accepted as a black woman, how if Bruce Jenner accepted as a woman? 
I still haven't heard a good answer yet. 

NY  Daily News reports two years after she was revealed to be a white woman pretending to be black, Rachel Dolezal is unable to find work and lives off food stamps — but she still believes she did nothing wrong.

“I’m not going to stoop and apologize and grovel and feel bad about it,” she told the Guardian. “I would just be going back to when I was little, and had to be what everybody else told me I should be — to make them happy.”

The former NAACP leader, who stepped down from the position in Spokane, Washington amid scandal, was outed in June 2015 when her parents, Larry and Ruthanne, revealed she was not actually black.

Here's the deal.  Both Rachel Dolezal and Bruce Jenner have mental illness.  But, only half of our society sees half the story.
