If there is one thing Rachel Dolezal does not understand, it is her racial identity. So naturally she is writing a book about it:
It has almost been a year since former Spokane, Washington, NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal was exposed as a white woman who claimed to be black.But Dolezal, who sparked outrage from critics who said she committed cultural appropriation and fueled conversation about self-identification and the concept of being transracial, said she doesn’t have any regrets.“I don’t have any regrets about how I identify. I’m still me and nothing about that has changed,” she said during an appearance on the “Today” show on Tuesday.Dolezal was born to white parents in Lincoln County, Montana, in 1977. She came to media attention last June when her estranged parents publicly said that she is a white woman who was passing as black.Dolezal later resigned from her position with the NAACP and was dismissed as chair of Spokane’s police ombudsman commission. She also resigned from her position as education director at the Human Rights Education Institute in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, citing discrimination.
