In defense, Rachel Dolezal had said that, “It’s about justice,” in the fight for human rights. Many would agree, but if it’s true, then the reports of her being in talks for a reality show should be false.

Dolezal herself hasn’t announced anything during her interview run, but Radaris reporting that she has received offers to do a reality show. She hasn’t accepted any offers, but Radar‘s source said that she’s looking to hire a professional team including an agent and publicist.
The source said she, “wants to use all of the publicity to raise awareness about race relations.” If this is true, than Dolezal is pretty naïve. There’s a conversation, but a lot of it concerns the spectacle about a person creating a false mythology. That overshadows any goodwill she has.

A little over five years ago, Rachel Dolezal had the nation cackling and shocked when we all found out she, a white woman, had been parading around "identifying" as Black.
Not only had she darkened her skin and teased her hair into an afro, she was an NAACP chapter president in Spokane, Washington for an entire year before anyone figured it out. To top that off, Dolezal previously claimed she was the victim of race-related hate crimes, and more.
What got her caught was a suspicious reporter who came across a Facebook photo of Dolezal's real parents. Her parents then shared photos of their white, blonde daughter growing up. Dolezal's brother Ezra also went on to substantiate evidence she'd been faking for quite a while.
“She’s obviously related to my parents and she says she’s not, she should get a DNA test, that would definitely prove it,” Ezra told PEOPLE at the time. “I don’t why she keeps saying it.” “She’ll probably say she would take one but she never will,” says Ezra, 22, of Montana. “A DNA test will prove she is 100 percent white.”

While Dolezal went on to admit that her racial identity is not necessarily based on ancestry, her antics continued, as she released a memoir she titled In Full Color.
