what is creative nonfiction? ...



 "true stories well told"


Used here ...
source: Rachel Dolezal
"I feel like there have been moments of some level of creative nonfiction, where I have had to justify or explain the timeline of the events of my life so that they make sense to others,"
... unfortunately she broke the cardinal rule ...
creative nonfiction magazine

"Creative” doesn’t mean inventing what didn’t happen, reporting and describing what wasn’t there. It doesn’t mean that the writer has a license to lie. The cardinal rule is clear"and cannot be violated. This is the pledge the writer makes to the reader"the maxim we live by, the anchor of creative nonfiction: "You can’t make this stuff up!" 
... and still has not admitted it .

it's interesting to hear ...
source: Rachael say:

"I'm more black than I am white. That's the accurate answer from my truth."

As such i, for one, believe she is being honest. 

Unfortunately and/or fortunately the truth that we feel, necessarily must interact with the truth felt by others, else there will be turbulence.  The consequences of that turbulence can be dire   ...  and are best avoided.

It would be interesting to test whether the n-word can be used by a white person who just identifies with being black.  The president who is both used it.  I would suppose that Rachel Dolezal could use it being black according to her identity & the pc crowd.  MLK used the word negro almost a hundred times in his famous "I have a Dream Speech" .  Nowadays even that word is considered bad.  MLK's message is lost to the president who wants keep the identity groups charged up for political purposes.
I wonder if I could use it if I declared myself to be black, eh?
