Racial Dolezal. Get it? I stole this from Howie Carr. It’s a great pun. The word “race,” denoting lineage, comes from a French translation of haras (silent “h”) into the Italian razza — which in Italian of that time applied to animals, not people. This points to current English and Italian usage being derived and adapted, respectively, from the French. I commend to you this wonderful piece that I reference infra.
How many major races are there in the world?
Ethnographic division into races from Meyers Konversationslexikon of 1885-90 is listing:
- Caucasian races (Aryans, Hamites, Semites)
- Mongolian races (northern Mongolian, Chinese and Indo-Chinese, Japanese and Korean, Tibetan, Malayan, Polynesian, Maori, Micronesian, Eskimo, American Indian),
- Negroid races (African, Hottentots, Melanesians/Papua, “Negrito”, Australian Aborigine, Dravidians, Sinhalese)

In conclusion. There, feel better? Good. Oh, and Dolezal’s White but she may feel herself Black. You’re welcome.
