Rachel Brothers sued and won against her former employer, where she’d been bullied for not being black enough:

Rachel Brothers was hired by the Black Educators Association in 2006 and almost immediately came under fire from subordinate Catherine Collier who, according to the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, made it clear she thought Brothers was too young and too light-skinned to represent the race-based organization to the community, The Chronicle Herald reports.

Other employees joined in on the bullying, with one telling Brothers she should “go work for whitey,” MailOnline.com reports.

But Collier was the instigator of much of the abuse directed at Brothers. It’s worth noting Collier had interviewed for the job that ended up going to Brothers.

Blacks have a history of squabbling about skin color with other blacks. In fact, the darker your skin, the lower on their totem pole you are. The lighter your skin, the higher you are. It would not surprise me if Collier got the job, because she was lighter-skinned (whiter)... and likely very much prettier.

Lots of blacks seem obsessed with skin color. so of course, squabbles like this break out.

Nor could Neil Young. But Maritime Man don't need him around, anyhow.

It follows that membership in, or support of, the BEA should be taken as proof of being a racist.

The Tea Party people, as a group, are called 'racist' without any sort of provable incident or court judgement. Yet this group, along with people like Shirley Sherrod (of the Department of Agriculture and Pigford infamy), who are actual and provable bigots, get away with harassing and abusing people based on skin color.

That whole double standard, that smug hypocrisy, causes me to look at anyone who 'plays the race card' with suspicion and contempt.

Exactly. I wonder if Brothers learned anything.

Membership in any race-based organization that excludes other races is inherently racist. Always has been, always will be.

Hey, if it were a club of Aleutian Islanders that moved to Texas that got together to lament that it never snows here, and the only things to harpoon are wandering around in spandex in the Wal-Mart, I can understand.

If it's to preserve a culture and have a link to home, show the kids or grandkids about their old life, sure thing.

When it's just an exclusionary, racist, hate mongering grievance machine, hell no. Especially when it seeks or receives government funding or grants, or special treatment.
