Rachel Dolezal

She doesn’t care that she’s born to white parents and that most of the former life she lived was a lie – Rachel Dolezal is still identifying as a black woman.
“It’s not a costume,” Rachel said in a new interview with Vanity Fair. “I don’t know spiritually and metaphysically how this goes, but I do know that from my earliest memories I have awareness and connection with the black experience, and that’s never left me.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So, I guess we’re going with trans-racial being a thing? She also revealed that her last paycheck from the NAACP came in June, and since then she’s been making ends meet by styling “black hair” (braids and weaves) about 3 times a week.

She tells the magazine that her last paycheck was in June and now her main source of income is styling black hair, claiming that she has appointments for braids and weaves about three times a week.

“I just feel like I didn’t mislead anybody; I didn’t deceive anybody. If people feel misled or deceived, then sorry that they feel that way, but I believe that’s more due to their definition and construct of race in their own minds than it is to my integrity or honesty, because I wouldn’t say I’m African American, but I would say I’m black, and there’s a difference in those terms.”

Rachel says she wants to write a book next, which comes as a surprise to absolutely nobody…
