BLM Activist, Who Faked Being Black, Rallied Against Law to Protect Black Babies
Black Lives Matter activist campaigned against a law protecting pre-born black babies
A Black Lives Matter activist, who recently admitted to being white after being exposed for faking her African American ancestry, actively campaigned against a law to protect black babies in the womb, according to reports.
Earlier this month, Satchuel Cole, a prominent BLM leader from Indiana, was caught pretending to be black after a local news outlet dug into her past and dropped the bombshell that she's actually white.
Cole, who was born Jennifer Benton to white parents, was forced to admit to faking her race and apologized for pretending to be black.
Benton came clean after a report from BlackIndyLive.com revealed that she was not black, forcing her to issue a statement where she vowed to seek help after she was exposed lying about her race.
The outlet discovered that Benton once identified as white after finding yearbook photos and legal documents also proved her parents were white.
She is, in fact, a white person who pretended to be black to increase her credibility in the progressive community, admitting in a bizarre apology that “I have taken up space as a Black person while knowing I am white.”
“Friends, I need to take accountability for my actions and the harm that I have done,” Benton wrote in an apologetic Facebook post, which continued:
My deception and lies have hurt those I care most about. I have taken up space as a Black person while knowing I am white. I have used Blackness when it was not mine to use. I have asked for support and energy as a Black person. I have caused harm to the city, friends and the work that I held so dear. I will do the work to take responsibility for my actions and try to reduce the harm that I have already caused. If there are ways to repair the harm, I will do the work that is required to do so. I will continue to seek the help necessary to heal myself. I am sorry for the harm I have caused. I am sorry for the hurt and betrayal. I will do what I can to show that I want to be a better person.
Cole’s long-running blackface may bring political retribution but her support for abortion rights may secure her a get-out-of-jail-free card, according to LifeSite News.
Secular Pro-Life noted that in April 2016, Cole was the organizer of a rally to protest against Indiana’s prenatal nondiscrimination law.
The law was designed to protect pre-born children from discrimination, banning abortion on the basis of race, sex, and disability (all of which are frequently-cited motives for abortion.)
“Support for race-based abortions is inherently racist,” Secular Pro-Life observed, “a criticism Cole deftly avoided by claiming to be black.”
That was a morally bankrupt excuse for opposing protections for non-white babies in the womb before we found out that Cole was a liar, of course.
But now we know that she was not who she said she was.
As Secular Pro-Life succinctly put it: “The 2020 news cycle moves quickly, and there [are] a ton of big stories in the abortion sphere right now, so I feel this bears repeating: A white abortion advocate pretended to be black while organizing a rally against a law that would protect black babies.”
That particular aspect of this story won’t get much traction in the media; the hypocrisy is simply too eye-watering.
The Star news article only notes Cole’s involvement in a “rally for women’s rights” in the caption of a photo, not even in the article itself.
Indiana’s pro-life law, unfortunately, was stuck down in 2019 by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court declined to rule on the anti-discrimination portion of the law.
Clarence Thomas, the Court’s only African American justice, warned that eventually, the issue would have to be dealt with:
Enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child, as Planned Parenthood advocates, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th-century eugenics movement.
In other contexts, the Court has been zealous in vindicating the rights of people even potentially subjected to race, sex, and disability discrimination…
Given the potential for abortion to become a tool of eugenic manipulation, the court will soon need to confront the constitutionality of laws like Indiana's.
In the meantime, when you read the latest round of race war news, remember this: A white Black Lives Matter activist posing as an African American campaigned against a law protecting pre-born black babies in the womb from a gruesome death.
