We get it. Michelle Wolf’s skin is what you might call “olive,” her hair is a cloud of curls, and she talks about Donald Trump from a reasonable, critical, intelligent perspective.
How is she not a Black woman?
She really does have the complexion and hair texture of people I know in my life who are in fact biracial, but unless you know something she doesn’t about her gene pool, we must accept that she’s not Black. She’s white, y’all!
It’s an odd thing. Normally it’s mixed race people who “pass” for white intentionally or not because white folks are generally really, really bad at detecting that “one drop” of Blackness. Meanwhile, us Black folks know a sista/brotha when we see one. Usually.
This time, both Black and white people are confused about what Wolf has going on in her DNA.
Dang I thought she was black! Oh well she can still fix her a plate and pull on up.

Wolf has also gotten some heavyweight co-signs from folks like Dave Chappelle. (By the way, we stick by our contention that we’ll take Wolf in the next racial draft.)
Chappelle: “I don’t know who those people think they are that she (@michelleisawolf) can’t say that to them, cause they offend people all the time. & I think that for many people … it’s cathartic to watch that woman speak truth to power like that https://t.co/h7JqKl1Dud #WHCD pic.twitter.com/lizoE9SuLn

A few people have pointed out that some of the white people crying a river of salty tears about the White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech seem to be going so hard at Wolf because they think she’s Black.
Racist? WTF are you talking about? You think Michelle Wolf is black don’t you. And that simply because she criticized Trump and Sanders (with no reference to race whatsoever), she’s racist.
Michelle Wolf is white. And you’re a moron.

Research using Google, found an article that says.. Michelle Wolf says she is 100% white… Michelle says, but people do sometimes think she is mixed race… so maybe the problem is people thinks she is mixed race… irritated over jokes from a black woman ?

If a white man or woman had said half the insults Wolf said to Sanders, to a black person… they’d be called racist. BTW- #MichelleWolf tell the truth about ur race… u r biracial.. politically correct term for mulatto. #SarahSanders is 10x classier than u. #WHCD #WHCADinner pic.twitter.com/S4iT6DQ3zh

They are oh so mad, but Wolf is unbothered. She’s basically like “I said what I said.” *NeNe Voice*
