It’s been a year since the world was force-fed the racial antics, orange tan and kinky wig of Rachel Dolezal. How can we forget the white woman who posed as a black woman and worked her way through an NAACP chapter in Spokane, Wash.?
Not only did Dolezal lie about her race to her colleagues, but if it wasn’t for her white parents outing her, she would probably still be acting in her own version of Imitation of Life.
On the one-year anniversary of her racial unmasking, Dolezal sat down with the Today show to discuss how her life has changed over the last year.
“What has the last year been like for you?” Savannah Guthrie asked.
“It was challenging but also wonderful in some ways. I welcomed a new son into the word. He’s perfect and precious. It’s been some work to rebuild and get back on track on life,” Dolezal responded.
Dolezal also said it’s been hard for her to be out in public because of her “notoriety.” She noted that “a lot of people take pictures, and it’s hard to go to the grocery store.”
Dolezal previously stated that she’s more black than she is white, even though she was born to two white parents. And now she’s going to write a book discussing racial identification.
