Yeah, yeah, yeah and she's also saying there's ' / no proof / DNA /to PROVE her parents are actually her biological parents........

And with her claiming to possess a sex tape her ex-husband *forced* her to make, I betcha she's already angling to shop a reality show about race..

And while it's neither hair nor there, if she had a Jeri kurl perm (doubted that from the start for several reasons, trust me on this), if she bought some 'dreads, wears a wig / fall / weave; for me, that's not much different that wearing makeup or body modification from plastic surgery to extreme piercings........ That she lied about it initially and then got all defensive when put on the spot, just makes it more difficult to trust her, believe her or have any sympathy, for her.



It's among the many questions burning up the Internet since the Rachel Dolezal situation came to light.

Sure, we'd like to know why she identifies as black if her parents say she's white. Or, what about that lawsuit against Howard University claiming discrimination?

But what Twitter REALLY wants to know is how did she get her hair to do that?
Rachel Dolezal: It's a weave


In one sign that she's being treated like a black woman, folks are questioning how she nailed the look, from her bronzed complexion to the authentic hairdo.

"Everyone wants to know: How do you do your hair? Is it a perm, is it a weave?" NBCBLK's Amber Payne asked her in an interview. "Everybody's asking."

It's true. From long braids to curly weave, her various hairstyles have been the object of ridicule, admiration and speculation. As one person said on Twitter: "I know hairdressers traditionallykeep secrets, but whoever did Rachel Dolezal's hair all these years must have buried Hoffa, too."

I just keep thinking about #RachelDolezal in the braiding shop getting her hair done. DEDICATION.

So many questions about this #RachelDolezal story. Many of them are hair related. I have so, so many questions.

#RachelDolezal is the white woman that got her hair braided (by a Black woman) on the beach while vacationing in the & took it too far.
— Charles Wade (@akacharleswade) June 12, 2015




It comes as little surprise that her fascination with African-American culture would extend to beauty and hair care. Her LinkedIn profile includes "Master Artist, Model, Ethnic Hair Stylist and Piano Teacher" among past positions.

One person even dug up a talk the Eastern Washington University adjunct professor gave on the role of hairstyles in the Black Power movement.

Dolezal finally cleared the air in her sit-down interview with Payne after the interviewer pressed her, asking whether she uses ethnic hair care products such as Mixed Chicks or Miss Jessie's.

"Because you're you and I'm here, I'll tell you. If I'm at the grocery store or anywhere else I'd be like, 'none of your business; back off,' " she said. "This is a weave, and I do it myself."


She went on to say that, as a stylist, she has done dreads and braids for others, too. No one has come forward yet as a client, but her mother told People magazine that she has a gift for applying makeup.

As for her complexion, Dolezal told NBC's Matt Lauer, "I certainly don't stay out of the sun" when asked about changes in her skin tone over time.

Why the current do? "I haven't had time recently to change for a couple months," she told Payne.

"Usually when it hits summer, I go back to my locks."






http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/16/living...rm-weave-feat/


While IMO she's seriously loop-de-loop in de brain pan, I also thing she's very cunning, manipulative and deceitful. And nothing is beyond her, if it means furthering her personal agenda......... Gee, with a few minor differences, I could have just described Hilda-beast, the POTUS or any of the Kartrashians ...





The woman who resigned as president of the Spokane NAACP after her parents revealed she was white posing as black says there's no proof they are her mother and father.

In an interview with NBC News on Tuesday night (http://nbcnews.to/1LfaDYU ), Rachel Dolezal said she hasn't had a DNA test and there's no "biological proof" that Larry and Ruthanne Dolezal are her parents.

NBC's Savannah Guthrie pointed out there's a birth certificate that lists the Dolezals as her parents.

Rachel Dolezal responded that she can't prove her parentage one way or another.


The uproar over her racial identity began last week after her parents said their daughter was white. For years, she publicly described herself as black or partly black and said on NBC's "Today" show that she identifies as black.

WOW!!! Maybe I don't need a crystal ball



Keeping Up With Rachel Dolezal? NAACP Race Faker In Talks For A Reality Show!


NAACP race faker Rachel Dolezal stepped down from her job Monday, but RadarOnline.com has learned she already has a new gig in the works: Dolezal is fielding multiple offers to film a reality show, and is seeking professional representation after her bombshell interview on the Today show.

Dolezal, currently in New York City after appearing on TODAY Tuesday morning, has been “offered two reality shows from different production companies,” an insider told Radar. “The offers were made last week along with several others that were just outrageous. Rachel recognizes that she is going to need an agent and a publicist, and is going to be hiring a professional team in the next few days.”

Rachel wants to use all of the publicity to raise awareness about race relations,” the source said.

The former NAACP Spokane chapter president was outed by her parents last week as being a white woman after years of fudging her racial identity, and allegedly lying on applications for city positions.

In an interview on Tuesday’s Today show, Dolezal addressed the confusion with Matt Lauer.

“This is not some freak, Birth of a Nation blackface performance,” she explained. “This is on a real connected level how I’ve had to go there with the experience.”

Dolezal’s “phone has been ringing constantly since the scandal broke, and she truly seems to be enjoying all of the attention,” the insider said. “Going back to her former life just isn’t an option.”

A lot of Americans have family stories that they had some Native American ancestry. Most often, the unsubstantiated claims are for Cherokee. My own grandmother claimed that her mother (or maybe it was grandmother?) was half-Cherokee. However, none of them were registered tribal members, and DH has found no evidence of it in the genealogy.

*I* do not claim to be Cherokee. If I am, in part, it's an interesting family story, no more. Certainly not enough to use it for personal advancement.

Guardian article here https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ologise-grovel


http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/26...-homeless.html


Rachel Dolezal, white woman who identifies as black, now jobless, may soon be homeless

Rachel Dolezal, the infamous white woman who for years passed herself off as African American and rose to become head of an NAACP branch, is now jobless, on food stamps and expects to soon be homeless.

ADVERTISEMENT

A defiant Dolezal, 39, recounted her current plight to The Guardian. Dolezal said she’s only been offered jobs in reality television and porno flicks. A friend helped her come up with the money for February’s rent and she doesn’t know how she’s going to pay for March.

And she still says she’s not white.

“I do think a more complex label would be helpful, but we don’t really have that vocabulary,” Dolezal told The Guardian. “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white.’ Because, you know, I’m not white . . . Calling myself black feels more accurate than saying I’m white.”

Dolezal was exposed in June 2015 when a local television crew asked her the simple question: “Are you African American?”

Pictures of a younger, white-skinned and blonde-haired Dolezal soon surfaced and her story exploded. The formerly successful leader of the Spokane NAACP chapter and a university professor, Dolezal – who once sued historically-black Howard University for racial discrimination, because she was white – now says she’s been turned down for 100 jobs and her memoir was rejected by 30 publishers before finding a taker.

She’s also apparently begun ruffling feathers in the transgender community by claiming that race, like gender, is fluid.

“It’s more so,” Dolezal told The Guardian. “Because it wasn’t even biological to begin with. It was always a social construct.”

Dolezal said she’s never considered identifying as white again.

“I feel that I was born with the essential essence of who I am, whether it matches my anatomy and complexion or not,” Dolezal said. “I’ve never questioned being a girl or a woman, for example, but whiteness has always felt foreign to me, for as long as I can remember. I didn’t choose to feel this way or be this way, I just am.

“What other choice is there than to be exactly who we are?”

Here's a crazy thought... Maybe humble up, apply for jobs that you have the skillset for and where your credibility on past issues don't matter, and work your way up. Probably gonna be pretty simple and menial - maybe some sort of secretarial stuff, maybe junior management in the retail world or something... But that's your problem. You are not entitled to be pandered to. Do the work you are capable of doing and earn your keep.

Wow, what a ridiculous bunch of psycho-babble gobbledy-gook. The thing that really chaps my hide, is that my tax dollars are feeding this piece of human garbage. The fact that she sued Howard University -- a school that has been a shining beacon of opportunity and social mobility to the African-American populace -- because it would not acknowledge her self-professed "blackness", speaks volumes. Me, me, me, me, me. And then, more me. Born in 1977, she is just a bit over the age cutoff for Millennials. So, let's call her an honorary Millennial, the "me generation" on steroids.

Why don't we just call her what she is? A self-absorbed idiot who should at least be able to easily identify as a Professional Victim.

""The 39-year-old says she can count the friends she has left in town on her fingers.""

If she lost most of her friends when they found she was white, does that make them racists?

A book.


Rachel Dolezal Claims She’s “A Woke Soul Sista” in New Autobiography

Unfortunately, America is a place with weak protections for the average worker. Because of this reality, I’ve been forced to spend the last two days reading Rachel Dolezal’s new autobiography, In Full Color, out March 28. You probably remember Dolezal as the former white female NAACP chapter president who identifies as black. Well, she’s back and boy, does she have some things to say.

Such an arduous task of reading horrendous garbage like In Full Color is likely illegal in most enlightened European countries. After finishing Dolezal’s 280-page “journey to self-identification,” I’ve decided to become a Marxist revolutionary so I can help spare any future generations from such unjust working conditions.

Since I remain a man of the people, I’ve provided you with some of the best sections and tidbits of the Dolezal origin story:

I see her brain ''escaped to Africa'' on multiple occasions .

I am guessing it was because of abuse .
