Rachel Dolezal, best known for being a former NAACP leader, at least until a reporter discovered her parents were white. Now Dolezal fills her days by still pretending to be of African decent, despite being suddenly ditched by the left, changing her name, applying for food stamps, and now promoting her memoir – where she writes some interesting things.
Dolezal, despite being caucasian, still identifies as black, and compares doing her household chores to slavery. and said that college was the first time she could really express herself as a “black woman”. The best part is when she said she was “too black” for her African-American husband (biologically, not because he identifies as so).

Explosive snippets of race-faker Rachel Dolezal’s memoir have been released, including a passage where she describes herself as being ‘too black’ for her African-American husband.
The disgraced civil rights activist, who claimed to be black before her parents outed her as white, is officially on the comeback trail and back in the spotlight, ahead of the release of her book, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World, on March 28.
The most unapologetic excerpts are two of the chapter titles chosen by the 40-year-old: ‘Escaping to Africa (in My Head)’ and ‘Hustling to Make a Dollar’.
Never one to stray too far from controversy, the former NAACP leader, who still identifies as black despite being ‘Caucasian biologically’, uses these chapters to compare her childhood chores to slave labor.
‘It wouldn’t have been too much of a stretch to call me an indentured servant,’ she wrote.
Warming to her theme, she tries to claim that she developed a ‘similar resourcefulness’ that slaves were forced to develop because of the way her parents made her to do housework.
She claims this everyday rite of passage for modest children was similar to ‘the institution of chattel slavery in America’.
Dolezal says it wasn’t until she was able attend college that she was able to express herself as a black woman.
She attended Belhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi, for her bachelor’s degree, then went on to get her Master of Fine Arts from the historically black college Howard University in Washington, DC.
‘(I was) finally able to embrace my true self, I allowed the little girl I’d colored with a brown crayon so long ago to emerge,’ she wrote.
She then said her first marriage crumbled because she was ‘a little too black’ for her African-American husband.
Dolezal had married Kevin Moore in 2000, when he was a medical student at Howard University. They divorced in 2004, which is when she decided to become publicly black.
The ruse worked for years until 2015 when her parents, with whom she has long feuded, told local reporters their daughter was born white but was presenting herself as a black activist in the Spokane region, an area with few minorities.
The story became an international sensation, and Dolezal lost the various jobs by which she pieced together a modest living for her family.
