It’s like a soap opera, or sports for men – you start watching, and you want to see how it develops, just like a movie. And what a great movie this would make. Former NAACP President Rachel Dolezal had said, "I cried because I resonated with some of the themes of isolation, of being misunderstood -- to not know if you have a conversation with somebody, will that relationship then end because they have seen you as one way," she saidshow more
