Rachel Dolezal who has been well known in the city of Spokane as an activist and president of NAACP has been the focus of a highly charged national debate in the recent days. This is because reports surfaced that claimed she was born white and was lying to everyone that she is black. Keeping all this in mind Rachel has even resigned as the president of NAACP and also gave an interview in her defense.
Rachel’s parents have even shown a picture of her childhood where she has pale skin and straight blond hair in contrast to the woman with darker skin and dark curly hair that appeared on the interview.
One statement by Rachel must have shattered her family in which she stated that as she hasn’t had a DNA test there is no biological proof that Larry and Ruthanne are her biological parents.
Larry and Ruthanne are the Montana couple who have told everyone that Rachel is their estranged daughter and Ezra her brother is black and adopted and is also one of four such children taken in by the Dolezals. However they maintain that Rachel is their own and is white.
Ezra Dolezal in an interview stated to CNN that he is adamant that Rachel won’t take a DNA test to prove that Larry and Ruthanne Dolezal are not her parents because they are and she doesn’t want to be caught lying.
Over the years we have seen that reports have identified Rachel Dolezal as transracial, multiracial or black but she has never connected them because according to her she feels a connection with the African-American experience. This experience she states started from the age 5 when she started to draw self-portraits in brown instead of peach crayon and with black curly hair.
However this self-assessment by Rachel has seemed to bother a lot of people including the African-Americans who feel that Rachel has gained fame as an activist by misrepresenting herself and even claiming personal injustices that weren’t even true.
However Rachel has some defenders too who basically state that the good she has done as an activist is commendable and that she cannot be penalized for her tight bond with the black community.
Well the most who are affected by Rachel’s decision are her parents as Rachel hasn’t talked to them for years. They have even been on opposing sides of one custody battle which ended with Rachel taking in one of Larry and Ruthanne’s fourth adopted child as her own.

Rachel explains that her tight bond with the black community increased as she grew up and she felt very isolated with her identity her entire life. Her parents on the other hand have challenged her assertions and they have even challenged her integrity and questioned her mental state. Moreover Rachel’s brother, Ezra sided with his parents and stated that Rachel was telling lies.
