How can you identify as black? You are white, just like Bruce is a man… Sorry folks, feelings do not override facts. Rachel has mental issues, as does Bruce… Just a simple fact… She is an attention seeking needy person who found she got more of what she wanted as a black person. And now she is getting all the attention she needs because she is now a white person pretending to be black, blaming her parents and others…
Rachel Dolezal, the former president of the NAACP’s Spokane, Washington chapter who resigned amid accusations that she lied about her race, told “Today” co-host Matt Lauer on Tuesday that her ”self-identification with the black experience” began at the age of 5.
“I identify as black,” Dolezal responded after Lauer asked if she is an African-American woman.
But she said it’s a “little more complex” than simply identifying as another race, starting when she was young.
“I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon, black curly hair … that was how I was portraying myself,” she said. “It was a little more complex than me identifying as black.”
