Disgraced race activist Rachel Dolezal has finally admitted that she was born white.
The former National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People
(NAACP) leader admitted her race on national TV on Monday.
Dolezal, who is believed to be pregnant with a baby boy , resigned from
the NAACP in June after being outed as white by her estranged parents.
During a tense grilling with The Real’s panel, Dolezal explained: “Sometimes how we feel is more powerful then how we are born.
“Blackness can be defined as philosophical, cultural, biological, a lot
of different things for a lot of different people. I do think you have
to walk the walk if that’s how you are.”
Dolezal claims to have identified as black from the age of five but had
the white identity “thrust” upon her until she was strong enough to
embrace her true self.
Dolezal carried out her racial charade for years before her estranged parents outed her as white.
Dolezal, who alters her appearance to look African-American, told
America’s Today show earlier this year that she had considered herself
black for almost her entire life.
