In June of 2015, former NAACP activist Rachel Dolezal was exposed by her parents as white woman after she tried for years to pass as a fair-skinned black woman.

Using perms to make her hair look more kinky and sometimes styling her hair in African-style braids, Dolezal’s culture appropriation gained her the acceptance of people who are deeply rooted in the struggle for social justice and equality for blacks in America.

When her jig was up, however, Dolezal’s life descended as she basically became the laughing stock of the entire nation. The gravy train ride as a public figure was over.

Fast forward to June of 2017 and a new story emerges about yet another woman who was born white trying to undergo a full-fledged effort to become a black woman. According to TheRoot.com, Martina Adam, a German-born aspiring model has followed in Dolezal’s footsteps by taking her culture appropriation to the next level.
