News of the Weird:

A weird gift that just keeps giving….

You remember the story of Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who became infamous for identifying herself as a black woman for decades and running the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP? She says she is now jobless.

Dolezal’s life began to change (or should we say revert back to reality?) when rumors began to surface that the local branch NAACP head was faking her identity and her parents released pictures of her as a freckle-faced blonde child of German, Czech and some Native American ancestry.

Before and after--as a blonde, freckle faced child and then when she began to pretend
Before and after–as a blonde, freckle faced child and then when she began to pretend

When asked if she thinks she had done anything wrong, she replied “No, I don’t. I’m not going to stoop and apologize and grovel and feel bad about it. I would just be going back to when I was little, and had to be what everybody else told me I should be.”

So there you have it—she is still pretending, just like when she was little.  Only now she thinks people should feel sorry for her when she pretends.
