The Internet is blowing up today over Spokane, Wash. NAACP president Rachel Dolezal being exposed by her parents as a white woman pretending to be African-American. It was only a matter of time before Twitter, bastion of Internet savagery, began having a field day with the news. In response to her saying she didn't understand the question when asked point blank if she's black, #AskRachel has become Twitter's top trending topic. While intended as a lampooning of Dolezal, it's also served as an aggregator of black culture.
