Well, if Democrats can't tell what gender they are by looking in their drawers, I guess it's understandable that they can be confused about other things that DNA can prove, too....



A leading activist for racial equality in Indianapolis, Indiana apologized for misleading people about her race for years in order to grow in prominence.

Satchuel Cole has been highly a visible racial justice activist in Indianapolis, has worked with the local Black Lives Matter chapter and was even the spokesperson for the family of Aaron Bailey who was killed by police during a June 2017 traffic stop, according to The Indy Star. Her apology, which she posted Wednesday on Facebook, came after Black Indy LIVE published an article detailing Cole’s family history.

“I have taken up space as a Black person while knowing I am white,” Cole said in her social media post. “I have used Blackness when it was not mine to use.”

She continued: “I have caused harm to the city, friends and the work that I held so dear. I will do the work to take responsibility for my actions and try to reduce the harm that I have already caused.”

Cole’s original name was Jennifer Benton before she legally changed it in 2010, according to legal documents obtained by Black Indy LIVE. After her name change, she began identifying as bi-racial telling fellow activists that she had a black father who she never met.


Further, documents obtained by Black Indy LIVE indicated Cole’s parents were both white.

Cole’s most prominent public role was on the Bailey case. U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler announced in April 2019 that the officers involved wouldn’t be charged due to insufficient evidence, according to The Star.

“Those officers are never, ever, ever going to pay for what they did. And that’s just really difficult to stomach,” Cole said on behalf of Bailey’s family after Minkler’s announcement, The Star reported. “And we know that this was the last hope at getting that justice and it’s not going to happen.”

In addition to her work on the Bailey case and with Black Lives Matter, she worked with Indy Showing Up For Racial Justice, Indy Pride and was vice president of the social justice organization DONT SLEEP, The Star reported. She also founded No Questions Asked Food Pantry, which partnered with Black Lives Matter among other organizations.

“If there are ways to repair the harm, I will do the work that is required to do so,” Cole said Wednesday. “I will continue to seek the help necessary to heal myself. I am sorry for the harm I have caused. I am sorry for the hurt and betrayal.”

Cole’s apology comes after Jessica Krug, a George Washington University professor who pretended to be black, resigned from her position with the school.

Jessica Krug is a real, real nasty piece of work. ‘Afro-Latina’ Activist Reveals She Is Really A White Jewish Woman, 'A Culture Leech' Who Pretended To Be Black

Next to step down should be Shaun King, who has masqueraded as a black man for years.
Blacks call him "Talcum X".

I remember social interest race dramas of the late '40s through the 50's about blacks passing for white.
"Pinky" (1949) is the most well known example. They were ahead of the curve by fifty years!

"Culture leeches" is what they are. Take your sign, Elizabeth Warren. Own your non minority status.
You can sit on the bus next to Rachel Dolezal.

I’ll be sure to pass it on to JoeyB Dolezal-Cole.
