For almost a decade, Rachel Dolezal had folks thinking she was a Black woman … but, that was until her own family outed her!

As the caramel-complexion, kinky hair chapter President of the Spokane NAACP and the African studies professor at Eastern Washington University, Dolezal lead her life as an African-American woman. But, due to some research by  Spokeane’s The Spokesman-Review and receipts by her own (white) parents, Rachel has now been outed as being white since birth.

Ruthanne Dolezal, Rachel’s mother, told The Spokesman-Review, “It’s very sad that Rachel has not just been herself. Her effectiveness in the causes of the African-American community would have been so much more viable, and she would have been more effective if she had just been honest with everybody.” Unfortunately, Rachel and her mother haven’t spoken for years. Her father Larry Dolezal told The Washington Post, “Unfortunately, she is not ethnically by birth African American. She is our daughter by birth. And that’s the way it is.”

When the The Spokesman-Review asked Rachel if she was indeed Black she answered, “That question is not as easy as it seems. There’s a lot of complexities … and I don’t know that everyone would understand that,” later adding, “We’re all from the African continent.”

Dolezal’s story began to unravel when she made statements saying she receiving hate mail. She also claimed a Black man, who was later revealed to be an old co-worker, was actually her father. Spokane’s KXLY interviewed Rachel about the mail and her “father” and during their chat, Dolezal was asked point blank if she was African-American. Watch the video below for her reaction.
