Baltimore book festival disinvited Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who claims to be black, after receiving backlash for inviting her. Was the festival right to disinvite the faux negro or is she a victim of discrimination for being transracial?

It is called "censorship." She had every right to be there. And those who attend have every right to pass her by, without notice or comment. Which is what I would have done. Those who support her have every right to engage her... which they cannot do if she is not there.

It is no different than "antifa Brown Shirts" making it impossible for anyone who choose to listen to Ann Coulter or Milo Yiannopoulos to do so in Berkeley... simply the inverse of the same effective censorship.

Well, based on the outrage expressed by some conservatives when one of their chosen few is boycotted or disinvited, she must be a victim.

Actually, I am beginning to think all this disinviting is getting a bit silly, along with the ruckus when it occurs.

Except there was no rioting, looting, destroying, and assaulting people like the liberals like to do to protest a conservative speaker.

Baloney. You just cannot tolerate any spotlights on the activities of the right. It is your modus operandi. Someone points out a problem, a hypocrisy, malfeasance and your response is ALWAYs to attempt to redirect and distract attention on anything you associate with the left.

You Are. Boring. Predictable. and overtly Biased.

That's the pot calling the kettle black except you swallow a horse and choke on a fly.

You are going to have to prove that. Otherwise you are just calling names and being a troll.

You are here calling me names so as usual your hypocrisy is showing.

You keep telling yourself that, if it makes you feel better.

She's not black anymore than Bruce Jenner is a girl.

That so many people are delusional has to have some specific cause.

I suggest it has to be the push to decry standards of behavior. It excuses anything and encourages those who want a platform of any sort. If anything is permissible then an outrageous claim is as valid as a rational claim and gets far more attention.

But standards are not the anchor of the ship of state, or the body politic but the rudder, and without them we're blown wildly-nilly as the next gust directs.

Maybe it was a non white event.

But she says she is black. Doesn't saying what you are supersede what someone actually is?

What's hilarious is that after the uninvite you know she was thinking "it's because I'm black. Tired of this racism!"

I am sure it brings up emotions of her people being enslaved and she can feel the chains and bullwhips more than ever before.

Maybe she was uninvited because she's a man.
