Watch: Rachel Dolezal Bares All On Race Controversy On ‘Today’

Published: Tuesday 16th Jun 2015 by David

Shamed NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal has taken to ‘Today’ to explain herself after facing criticism for pretending to be an African-American woman.

Unfortunately, any hoping her “outing” would prompt an apology from her will be disappointed by the interview with Matt Lauer below. For, she has insisted that she identifies as an African-American despite being born to Caucasian parents.

Her words below…

Watch here.

    The one amazing and redeeming factor about America is that they do not hide their racial issues under a rag like most EU countries, they address them head on, and this is why America is great at what they do, and that is democracy.

    That said, if we can accept Bruce as Caitlyn, I see no problem with accepting Rachel as a black woman, this is a progressive world we live in and we have been told race is a social contrast.

    I do have to say that Rachel is late to the party though, Chet Haze and Iggy Azealia were the first ones to come out as black, in fact Beyonce started this trend long ago when she came out as white during 4.

      You where making great sense until your b*** hurt last paragraph. In all honesty, from viewing all your comments, you’re nothing but a fake b**** who try’s hard to impress strangers on a blog. With that said, I do however agree with your praise of Ms Rachel.

      Have a nice day you transparent b****.

      Gender dysphoria is an actual thing. Not like her wanting to be Black. Though I do agree with you that she shouldn’t be crucified for wanting to be a part of and helping out the Black community.

    I just wanted to add, Rachel has done more for a black community than many people clowning her today.

      What has she done? What does the NAACP do? It’s not 1953. They’re no longer needed

      • Brandy Stan June 16, 2015

    I’m neither white or black, i’m Hispanic, and i’ve experienced both negative from both race’s, but I do have to say that white people are by far the worst. They’re evil, they smell like wet dog, baloney, ass, garbage, incestuous,and are the most contrived ass holes.

    • OMG Logic!!! June 16, 2015

      How odd that you ignore that ALL Hispanics have some percentage of Caucasian in them. Does that mean that you yourself are evil, smelly, incestuous, and contrived?

      • OMG Logic!!! June 16, 2015

        And by some I mean usually 50%.

      • Toohotfortv June 16, 2015

        Huh? That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Its equivalent to saying that all African Americans have 50% white ancestry. Yeah, no… while most are of mixed decent, you’d hardly say any are “white”. If you know anything about latin american history you’d understand that most people of latin american decent are primarily decendants of indigenous peoples (ie: indians)… so miss us with your ignorance.

      • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2015

        @OMG Logic
        Not all Hispanics are mixed, Argentinians and Uruguayians are 100% Caucasian, that’s the wrong perception that i was talking about, there are non-mixed white in every Latin American country.

      • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2015

        Depends of the country, for example countries like Mexico, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Paraguay and Guatemala are mosty of indigenous peoples, while Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela are predominantly mixed (Blacks/Whites), althought there non-mixed blacks, whites and indians there too. Chile, Uruguay and Argentina are mostly of European descent.

    I was taken aback when she talked about survival.
    “Every decision I’ve made along the way, including my identification, have been to survive.”
    What did she mean by that? Was it for financial gain or something?
    Anyway, I’m not disgusted or anything like that, and I understand why so many black people came to her defense. I just think she could’ve accomplished more as a white woman, a little like F. W. de Klerk, instead of lying and hiding behind a ‘blackface.’

    Suicide Blonde is one pressed white old f*****.

    Anyways this woman should just disappear.

    • Brandy Stan June 16, 2015

      It’s to bad he survived the 80’s A.. epidemic.

  7. Suicide Blonde June 16, 2015

    Let her be, she has black kids and has done a lot for black people. That being said, i wonder how she fool anyone, she looks like many southern Italians and southern Spaniards do, the perm, the tan, is very common in Mediterraneans, that says a lot about how Americans view race (including African Americans), if it’s not German looking, ain’t white, take for example the case of many Latin Americans and Hispanic people, some of them are of European descent, mostly from the Mediterranean area, but because they have olive skin tone, dark brown eyes and dark hair (like most Southern European), they’re not considered white in the USA, or are called mixed just because if you come from Latin America, you cannot be white of full European blood. Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin and Shakira are big examples of this, they are not considerend white but people of color here, when in fact they are full blooded european and middle east ancentry, while Johnny Depp who is in part native american, is considered a white man, because he’s name is anglo, anything in spanish is either indian or mixed, doesn’t Ricky Martin looks whiter than Johnny Depp, Mark Ruffalo or James Franco?, doesn’t J.Lo and Shakira looks exactly the same as Spaniard (European) Penelope Cruz?. The US needs must be the most ignorant country when it comes to race, this is the only nation in the world where Mariah Carey will be called a black woman, despite her dna, she is not a black woman physically, a few black features here and there, which is normal since she’s mixed but the rest is caucasian. Please fellow americans, read non-american books, learn about other cultures, educate yourself, our system lie to us, they brainwash us in order to control us, that’s why we are seen by other peoples are ignorants, wake up.

    • Brandy Stan June 16, 2015

      Stfu you dumb f**.

      • Toohotfortv June 16, 2015

        Are you kidding? Ricky Martin and jlo are Puerto Rican which means they are primarily of Taino indian decent, with a percentage of European, as well as African. Shakira is Columbian and traditionally the people of that country follow a similar lineage as those of latin Caribbean decent. She is also part lebanese, I believe. Anyway, your point is stupid and actually goes a long way to pointing towards the idea that you actually think all black people look the same. Gtfoh!

      • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2015

        That’s what i was talking about, not all Latinos are mixed, just like no every black and white american is mixed, Ricky Martin is of Spanish and French descent, J.Lo is of Spanish descent and Shakira of Spanish, Italian and Libanese descent, just because they were born in Latin America doesn’t mean they have to be mixed. There are a vast wave of Europeans moving to Latin America, so if a german couple moves to Puerto Rico and have kids there that automatically make the kids have Taino, Black and European blood, use logic, it’s not that difficult to understand these things. There are Latinos of full European blood, they’re an ethnicity not a race.

    Best believe she’s starting a trend.

    Even in Asia, people have started emulating Black culture from nappy hair to tanned skin, to babyphat-type of clothing.

    Now that she’s jobless, she will probably write a book about her experience. 10 years in Blackface, that’s astounding.

    She’s a lie, and I bet she’s not the only one. There must be more transracial out there acting like the X-Men and stuff.
