Somewhere, Rachel Dolezal is laughing her ass off.
A Gambian model is being accused of being a White woman in black face makeup. According to reports, her Brazilian accuser had this to say in the comment section of Instagram (translated by BlackGirlLongHair.com):
“The greatest black woman you all respected, the greatest African woman you have exalted (laugh), is actually white. I’m dead with this “fulera” (slang that often means something or someone is cheap, worthless, ridicule), blacker than her…It reminds me of the pregnant woman from Taubate (a famous Brazilian story about a woman who faked a pregnancy of 4 babies with a huge fake belly) that made Edu Guedes (a Brazilian TV presenter) thrill with her unbelievable story, (continues laughing).”
She also pointed out that the model, known as Melvnin to her followers, had hands that were lighter than the rest of her body. But like Melvnin would explain, uneven skin is not uncommon in the Black community.
