Gwen Stefani Identifies as Japanese

If Bruce Jenner is a woman, then pop singer Gwen Stefani is Japanese:

While speaking about her now-controversial Harajuku Lovers fragrance line, which launched in 2008, and frequent use of Japan’s subculture over the years, the singer, 53, raised eyebrows as she repeatedly insisted she was Japanese.

The controversy comes from the sin against political correctness that is cultural appropriation. The rest of the world is entitled to things created by white people — electricity, flight, the Internet, modern agriculture, modern medicine, et cetera. But whites are forbidden to embrace anything that is nonwhite in origin, because according to liberal ideology, white people are racist and therefore bad.

In the past, Stefani has been denounced for wearing dreadlocks, thereby culturally appropriating from blacks.

Despite having no ethnic ties to the country as the daughter of an Italian-American father and Irish-American mother, the performer claimed to identify as part Asian.

A little wackiness is to be expected with entertainers. At least she is less crazy than liberal establishment ideology. She asks:

“[It] should be okay to be inspired by other cultures because if we’re not allowed then that’s dividing people, right?”

It is not okay, because the point of cultural Marxism (a.k.a. political correctness) is to implement a divide and conquer strategy on behalf of the oligarchical collectivist ruling class.

Kudos to Stefani for drawing attention to this, and for choosing a race that generally doesn’t get extra privileges for failing and then wailing about oppression. But she still joins the list of racial imposters for claiming to be Japanese instead of embracing what she really is, even if she probably never meant us to take her literally.

At least looks as Japanese as Rachel Levine looks female.

Amerindian Artist Kay LeClaire Is Racial Impostor

As the benefits of being any race but white accrue, there are ever more racial impostors. The latest is faux-Indian crybully and political correctness profiteer Kay LeClaire.

From Madison, Wisconsin:

Early in 2020, an Indigenous artist urged the owners of a new music venue in town to change its name.

It was called The Winnebago, after the street on which it stands. Many Indigenous people and allies let the owners know that wasn’t the best name for a white-owned music venue. One of them was nibiiwakamigkwe, also known as Kay LeClaire, a founding member and co-owner of the queer Indigenous artists’ collective giige, and budding leader of Madison’s Indigenous arts community.

It took several months, but the venue eventually relented and rebranded as The Burr Oak.

Even the Cleveland Indians caved in the end.

Background on LeClaire:

Since at least 2017, Kay LeClaire has claimed Métis, Oneida, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Cuban and Jewish heritage. Additionally, [she identifies] as “two-spirit,” a term many Indigenous people use to describe a non-binary gender identity.

Not being a regular American has been remunerative:

In addition to becoming a member and co-owner of giige, LeClaire earned several artists’ stipends, a paid residency at the University of Wisconsin, a place on the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Task Force and many speaking gigs and art exhibitions, not to mention a platform and trust of a community – all based on an ethnic identity that appears to have been fully fabricated.

She has basically confessed:

“I am not using the Ojibwe name given to me and am removing myself from all community spaces, positions, projects, and grants and will not seek new ones. Any culturally related items I hold are being redistributed back in community, either to the original makers and gift-givers when possible or elsewhere as determined by community members.”

Not good enough. They ought to make her walk through moonbatty Madison wearing KKK robes.

But then, you can hardly blame her for not wanting to be white in a society under the thumb of progressives, who hold that virtue consists mainly of not being white. Merit has been rejected. The only avenue for advancement is membership in an identity group that enjoys the privilege of being regarded as “oppressed.”

People are now encouraged from early childhood to identify as a different gender. Why can’t Kay LeClaire identify as a different race?

Berkeley Prof Elizabeth Hoover Admits She Isn’t an Indian

Academia is a great place to look for new inductees into the Racial Impostors Hall of Shame. The latest is Elizabeth Hoover, an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at prestigious University of California, Berkeley, who turns out not to be an Indian:

Hoover is “one of 11 self-identified Native American/Alaska Native ladder-rank faculty members at Berkeley,” according to the Berkeley News.

For decades, Professor Hoover has attributed her Native American heritage to being part of both the Mohawk and Mi’kmaq Indian tribes.

But now she has come clean:

Hoover released an official statement on the issue on Oct. 20 titled “Statement about Identity.” In it, she discussed the results of her investigation into whether she truly had Native American roots.

“Now, without any official documentation verifying the identity I was raised with, I do not think it is right for me to continue to claim to be a scholar of Mohawk/Mi’kmaq descent,” Hoover wrote.

Whether it was deliberate fraud or just based on wishful thinking, presenting herself as an Indian no doubt helped her achieve a position at prestigious Berkeley. Confessing the truth is less of a PR disaster than getting exposed by angry real Indians. It’s not as if they will take her assistant professorship away, any more than they took away ersatz Indian Elizabeth Warren’s US Senate seat.

Just as hate hoaxes emphasize that the oppression of “oppressed” identity groups needs to be fabricated, the proliferation of racial impostors confirms that it is an advantage to be “marginalized.”

Sacheen Littlefeather Was Racial Impostor

Say it’s not so. A theatrical Tinseltown display of leftist virtue signaling turns out to be based on lies?

In 1973, Marlon Brando declined the Academy Award for Best Actor on the grounds that not even Hollyweird was woke enough to meet his standards. He sent alleged Apache Sacheen Littlefeather to attend the ceremony in his place, reject the award, and of course denounce racism. As previously noted regarding Brando,

What a posturing, sanctimonious jackass. Note that the award he threw back in Tinseltown’s face was granted to him for playing an Italian mobster. This is closer to a bigoted stereotype than Hollywood’s white-washed depiction of the horrific Stone Age barbarism prevailing in the wild West before it was tamed.

Presenting Sacheen Littlefeather:

This gag-inducing spectacle has been exploited recently in attempts to cancel John Wayne and Clint Eastwood for representing countermoonbattery.

You might have noticed that Sacheen doesn’t look much like an Indian. Turns out Brando’s publicity stunt was even phonier than we knew. As the San Francisco Chronical admits:

In one of her final interviews, Littlefeather told The Chronicle that she took the stage at the Oscars because “I spoke my heart, not for me, myself, as an Indian woman but for we and us, for all Indian people … I had to speak the truth. Whether or not it was accepted, it had to be spoken on behalf of Native people.”

But Littlefeather didn’t tell the truth that night. That’s because, according to her biological sisters, Rosalind Cruz and Trudy Orlandi, Littlefeather isn’t Native at all. …

Littlefeather’s sisters both said in separate interviews that they have no known Native American/American Indian ancestry. They identified as “Spanish” on their father’s side and insisted their family had no claims to a tribal identity.

“I mean, you’re not gonna be a Mexican American princess,” Orlandi said of her sister’s adoption of a fraudulent identity. “You’re gonna be an American Indian princess. It was more prestigious to be an American Indian than it was to be Hispanic in her mind.”

“Prestigious” in this context means higher up in the Cultural Marxist caste system.

Research has confirmed that Sacheen was no Apache. She was garden variety half Mexican American, half American American. The details of her hard luck backstory were either distorted or fabricated.

Please join me in celebrating Sacheen Littlefeather’s posthumous induction into the Racial Impostor Hall of Shame.

LA Mayoral Candidate Rick Caruso Denies Being White

Maybe our moonbat rulers will spare Columbus Day, now that Italians are no longer white.

During a mayoral debate in single-party Los Angeles last week between Karen Bass and Rick Caruso, Telemundo moderator Dunia Elvir put the election in the usual identity politics terms, proclaiming that the next mayor of the rotting city “will be either an African-American woman [Bass] or a white man [Caruso].”

Not so fast:

Desperate to avoid the stigma of being a white man, Caruso immediately declared: “I’m Italian,” whereupon Elvir said, “An Italian American,” to which Caruso responded: “Thank you, that’s Latin, thank you.”

Just like that, everyone with Italian heritage from Julius Caesar to Al Pacino stopped being white. Now they are Latin, or more PC still, Latinx.

We have not quite reached maximum moonbattery. To get votes in moonbattery-addled LA, Caruso has switched from Republican to Democrat and Italian American to Latin, but he still identifies as a man, even if his spinelessness in the face of wokeism makes that an exaggeration in his case.

Alberto Retana, who is the president of the Community Coalition of South Los Angeles (“Uniting Black & Brown”), was appalled and wasn’t about to let Caruso slither out of being white: “Wow, did Caruso just say he is Latin?” Retana tweeted. “That he is not a white man? I am floored. We cannot let him do this. Terrible.”

Pretending not to be white is the Cultural Marxist version of stolen valor. Caruso is hardly the first to lay false claim to the many advantages of oppressedness:

The white Jewish professor Jessica Krug passed as black for years. So did Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP official who famously turned out not to be a CP at all. Still at it is Shaun King, aka Talcum X, who strenuously insists that he isn’t white despite photographic evidence he was a light-haired white child before he was woke. Elizabeth Warren passed as Native American and was even hailed as the first “woman of color” on Harvard’s faculty. Muslim “feminist” activist Linda Sarsour said in a Vox video published in January 2017: “When I wasn’t wearing hijab, I was just some ordinary white girl from New York City.” But in an April 2017 interview, the hijabbed Sarsour referred to “people of color like me.”

Please welcome Rick Caruso to the Racial Impostor Hall of Shame.

Carrie Bourassa, Racial Impostor

As rule by cultural Marxists makes it ever more advantageous to belong to a group designated as “oppressed,” we see ever more racial impostors. The latest to be exposed is a faux-Indian named Carrie Bourassa:

A Canadian medical researcher who rose to become the nation’s top voice on indigenous health has been ousted from her government job and her university professorship — after suspicious colleagues investigated her increasingly fanciful claims of Native American heritage and learned she was a fraud.

Carrie Bourassa, a public health expert who served as scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, was suspended on Nov. 1, five days after the state-owned Canadian Broadcasting Corporation published a lengthy expose on her background.

Bourassa identifies as a member of the Métis nation. Her ancestors are actually from less politically fashionable Eastern Europe.

According to the ideology of our ruling class, a man can literally become a woman simply by claiming to be one. However, joining racial identity groups that have been granted cherished victim status is not so easy.

What did her in was getting carried away with the act:

Colleagues began to doubt Bourassa’s story as she began to add claims of Anishinaabe and Tlingit heritage to her tale — and took to dressing in stereotypically indigenous fashion.

It started to unravel in 2019, when she appeared in full tribal regalia — draped in an electric blue shawl, with a feather in her partially braided hair — to give a TEDx Talk at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.

“My name is Morning Star Bear,” she said tearfully as the crowd cheered.

Poranna Gwiazda Niedźwiedź, more like it.

“I’m Bear Clan. I’m Anishinaabe Métis from Treaty Four Territory,” she proclaimed as she described an impoverished childhood beset by violence.

Please welcome Carrie Bourassa to the Racial Impostor List, where she has the embarrassing company of Elizabeth Warren, Rachel Dolezal, Kristen Rosen Gonzalez, Shaun King, Jessica Krug, CV Vitolo-Haddad, Satchuel Cole, and Kelly Kean Sharp.

As professional racist Ibram X. Kendi discovered the hard way, that so many whites pretend to be nonwhite exposes critical race theory as a preposterous lie. Good thing the liberal establishment has a backup religion in the global warming hoax — even if that too is a preposterous lie.

Kristen Rosen Gonzalez, Pseudo-Hispanic Democrat

To find out which identity groups really are privileged, note which ones people pretend to belong to. For example, leftist Florida congressional candidate Kristen Rosen Gonzalez pretends to be Hispanic

Via Miami’s CBS4:

In an interview with Democratic Party leaders, former Miami Beach Commissioner Kristen Rosen Gonzalez argued they should endorse her campaign comeback because she is “the most high-profile Hispanic Democrat in the City of Miami Beach.”

Then she was called out for not being Hispanic.

“Well, I’m perceived as being Hispanic,” Rosen Gonzalez said in an interview with CBS Miami. “I’m perceived as being Hispanic by all of the Hispanics in my community. I’m their girl. My last name is Hispanic. I know I’m not Hispanic.”

That makes her an admitted liar.

Rosen Gonzalez has always played up her last name during her campaigns, with the word Gonzalez typically in much larger type on her campaign material. She was married to Emilio Gonzalez, but the couple divorced in April 2009.

Similarly, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego (née Widland) is a gringa who used to be married to fellow leftist Ruben Gallego. They divorced prior to her election, but she keeps her married name for demographic reasons.

Maria-Elena Lopez, who also took part in the interview … suspects Rosen Gonzalez uses her last name to garner support among Hispanic voters, who represent nearly half the vote on Miami Beach. “I honestly feel that is the purpose,” Lopez said. “By keeping a Hispanic name, you are trying to confuse voters.”

Hate hoaxes are so yesterday. Racial imposters are what’s next. Please welcome Kristen Rosen Gonzalez to a growing list that includes Elizabeth Warren, Rachel Dolezal, Shaun King, Jessica Krug, CV Vitolo-Haddad, Satchuel Cole, and Kelly Kean Sharp.

The 2018 video below gives an idea of the ditzy moonbattery that comes with Señora Gonzalez’s phoniness. Her bid for Congress thankfully failed that year. Watch her boast of being “really creative in finding ways to work around this love of the Second Amendment” — and presumably the rest of the Constitution. The context is the exploitation of the mental health crisis to attack the fundamental right of self-defense in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting:

Professor Kelly Kean Sharp, Racial Imposter

Thanks to the racist left-wing concept of “white privilege,” it is a big advantage to be anything but white. That’s why we have so many racial imposters like Elizabeth Warren, Rachel Dolezal, Shaun King, Jessica Krug, CV Vitolo-Haddad, Satchuel Cole, and now Kelly Kean Sharp:

Sharp resigned Tuesday from her assistant professorship at Furman University following accusations that she pretended to be non-white, a university spokesman said.

An anonymous person outed the African American history scholar through a Medium post, InsideHigherEd reported.

Sharp apparently invented a Mexican grandmother, thereby transforming herself into a Mexican. You only need to be part nonwhite to be absolved of white privilege. She defined herself as “Chicana” on her Twitter profile.

She generously extended her phony nonwhiteness to her hometown of Encinitas, California, claiming that her research on the hated antebellum South was in part inspired by the town’s “majority-minority population.”

Encinitas is 88.7% white, census records show, and “known to anyone from California for being a wealthy beach community,” according to the Medium post.

Given her ability to distort reality on behalf of a phony PC narrative, Sharp might have had a successful career in academia. But not everyone gets away with greasing their career skids by racially redefining themselves the way Elizabeth Warren did at Harvard.

You don’t see nonwhite racial imposters pretending to be white. Assimilating with the core population is no way to get ahead when the national religion is Cultural Marxism.

Satchuel Cole, Racial Impostor

As black privilege rockets upward, propelled by the cowardly reaction to Black Lives Matter riots, the number of racial imposters has unsurprisingly seen a corresponding rise. Move over, CV Vitolo-Haddad and Jessica Krug; make way for the latest, Satchuel Cole.

LifeSiteNews reports:

On September 18, the Indianapolis Star dropped a bombshell: Satchuel Cole, “a highly visible community leader advocating for racial and social justice in Indiana,” turns out not to be the black person that she claimed she was. She is, in fact, a white person who pretended to be Black to increase her credibility in the progressive community. …

Cole, who was also prominent in the LGBTQ community (and has served as a Grand Marshall at the Pride Parade), explained on her Facebook page that she was not who she’d claimed to be after an article outing her as white…

She made a big mistake, admitting to be white. Shaun King was outed as Caucasian years ago. Thanks to his denials, he remains on his throne high in the Black Lives Matter power structure, from where he issues fatwas against Christian statuary.

CV Vitolo-Haddad, Another Racial Imposter

Move over, Jessica Krug, and make space for another addition to the Racial Impostor Hall of Shame. CV Vitolo-Haddad, a graduate student at University of Wisconsin-Madison, had to resign as a teaching assistant after admitting that she isn’t really black.

Via Daily Mail:

CV Vitolo-Haddad, who identifies as non-binary and goes by ‘they’ or ‘them’ pronouns, pretended on multiple occasions to be black or Latino although the teacher is actually Southern Italian and Sicilian.

It can be hard to tell these days, but Vitolo-Haddad appears to be a she.

If she can pretend to have no gender, why can’t she pretend to be black? Because the benefits of being black in this country are so bounteous that they cannot be squandered upon the undeserving (prominent radical Shaun King of Black Lives Matter being an exception).

Vitolo-Haddad resigned from the university job and the role at the union saying ‘education is build on a foundation of trust and accountability, and until I repair that I should not be teaching’.

Vitolo-Haddad confesses that her “deception was parasitic and harmful.”

Too bad powerful imitation Indian Elizabeth Warren doesn’t make the same confession. But then, the Democratic Party is hardly built on a foundation of trust and accountability.

Jessica Krug, Racial Impostor

If anything gives the lie to the liberal oppression narrative even more than mass Third World immigration to the USA, it is racial impostors. Democrats and their media mouthpieces weep that minorities — especially blacks — are oppressed. Yet nonwhites want to live here, and whites pretend to be nonwhite. This is because “oppressed” is Orwellian for “privileged.” The privilege can be exploited to build a career, as Rachel Dolezal demonstrated by becoming a NAACP chapter president and university instructor of Africana studies. Jessica Krug joins her in the Hall of Shame:

Despite publicly living as a black woman for years, George Washington University associate professor Jessica Krug admitted Thursday that she is actually a “culture leech” — who is white.

Krug took to Medium to confess her scam.

“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,” she says. “I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie, and I have lied in every breath I have taken.”

She has renounced her fraud, but she still needs to disavow her fraudulent leftist ideology, to judge by her misuse of the word “violent.”

Krug pronounces upon herself the harshest possible sentence in the world of tolerant liberals:

“You should absolutely cancel me, and I absolutely cancel myself.”

Why drop the deception now, at the height of Black Lives Matter mania?

A former friend of Krug’s and another professor charged that Krug only came forward because she had been found out and had started being confronted by others in her field.

At least she came clean when exposed. Evidently Caucasian Black Lives Matter agitator Shaun King remains in denial. So does Elizabeth Warren, who climbed high on the career ladder by pretending to be nonwhite, then claimed that the DNA test proving her to be as white as she looks actually qualifies her as an Indian.

Krug, who has an apartment in Harlem, allegedly once went on a profanity-laden tirade at a City Council hearing, in which she spoke in a street accent and blasted New Yorkers who talked about the police in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

Krug isn’t much phonier than anyone else who has climbed atop Floyd’s fentanyl-saturated corpse to denounce society.
