Rachel Dolezal is back…and she’s bolder than ever.
Rising to fame after it emerged that she was a Caucasian woman who had successfully fooled her friends into believing she was African-American, Rachel found herself on the receiving end of heat from those who deemed her lies problematic.
Now, after details of her disturbing childhood surfaced online, she is back to capitalise on her fame and- by way of new remarks- ruffle many a feather.
I don’t identify as African American, I identify as black.
I am part of the Pan-African diaspora and I definitely feel like in America, even though race is a social construct and we’ve acknowledged this in academia and in science there still is a line drawn in the sand.
There still are sides. Politically, there’s a black side and a white side, and I stand unapologetically on the black side. I stand with my own internal sense of self and my own values. I stand with my sons, I stand with my sister and I also stand there really with the greater cause of challenging the myth of white supremacy.
