Rachel Dolezal


Last quote by Rachel Dolezal

I had to constantly mask and subordinate and repress part of myself to kind of, survive, socially. If somebody saw me as black or mixed or light skinned, it was more comfortable because it was a box I could be put in.feedback

Rachel Dolezal quotes

Mar 27 2017

People wanted me to explain myself to them. They said they felt shocked and betrayed. They were confused. They were angry. A few of my friends reached out to make sure I was doing all right, but they were the minority. Many more people, who I'd once considered friends, told me they no longer wanted to have anything to do with me.feedback

You know, the book was a difficult one to write, for sure. But I felt like it was kind of a little bit forced upon me as far as just the need to tell the whole truth about my life and the full story. But I am 100 percent committed to providing for my kids. And finding my way back to the activism work that I am so passionate about.feedback

I don't identify as African American, I identify as black. I am part of the Pan-African diaspora and I definitely feel like in America, even though race is a social construct and we've acknowledged this in academia and in science there still is a line drawn in the sides. I really hope that readers are encouraged to be exactly who they are. Like I said, I want to tell the whole story of my life, and [I hope that] in some way [I'm] able to kind of set the record straight because my life story was really warped beyond recognition by a lot of the negative press in 2015.feedback

I am just looking for opportunities to reenter that field and participate again. I'm hopeful.feedback

I felt less like I was adopting a new identity and more like I was unveiling one that had been there all along. Finally able to embrace my true self, I allowed the little girl I'd colored with a brown crayon so long ago to emerge. I was presented as a con and a fraud and a liar. I think some of the treatment was pretty cruel. I would pretend to be a dark-skinned princess in the Sahara Desert or one of the Bantu women living in the Congo … imagining I was a different person living in a different place was one of the few ways … that I could escape the oppressive environment I was raised in.feedback

Right now the only place that I feel understood and completely accepted is with my kids and my sister. I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than 'I'm white'. Because you know, I'm not white. There's a perspective, there's a mentality, there's a culture. To say that I'm black is to say, this is how I see the world, this is the philosophy, the history, this is what I love and what I honor. Calling myself black feels more accurate than saying I'm white.feedback

Feb 27 2017

For the first time in my life, I really decided consciously to be free from the repression, and free from feeling like I had to do things in a way that was acceptable to other people. I had the courage to be exactly who I was.feedback
