Rachel Dolezal Finally Admits: I Was Born White (Video)

Former NAACP chapter head comes clean on “The Real”

Rachel Dolezal has a shocking confession for the world: She wasn’t born black.

Dolezal, the former president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP who grabbed headlines and raised eyebrows earlier this year by claiming that she’s black, despite her parents saying otherwise, dropped the bombshell during Monday’s episode of talk show “The Real.”

“I acknowledge, I was biologically born white, to white parents,” Dolezal admitted.”But I identify as black.”

The admission didn’t come without some tooth-pulling; asked by the panel whether she actually walked the walk as a black woman, Dolezal offered a wobbly response.


So, after years of lying about her race and other lies, she finally comes clean.
It's about time.

2. She considers herself a black woman.

She isn't, but she thinks of herself as one.

5. Truth really is stranger (and more troubling) than fiction.
