Rachel Dolezal, who recently changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo to further embrace her African “heritage” although she was born White, is still claiming she is a “woke soul sista.”

The former NAACP leader of the Spokane, Washington chapter, releases her memoir, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World, this month. In it, she details her journey to “freeing” her “inner blackness,” according to New York Daily News.

“I’d stir the water from the hose into the earth… and make thin, soupy mud, which I would then rub on my hands, arms, feet, and legs,” she writes in an excerpt shared by Daily Mail.

“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.”

Chapter titles include “Escaping to Africa (in My Head)” and “Hustling to Make a Dollar,” in which the 40-year-old likens her childhood chores to slavery.

From Daily Mail:

“‘It wouldn’t have been too much of a stretch to call me an indentured servant,’ she wrote.

Warming to her theme, she tries to claim that she developed a ‘similar resourcefulness’ that slaves were forced to develop because of the way her parents made her to do housework.

She claims this everyday rite of passage for modest children was similar to ‘the institution of chattel slavery in America’.”

Dolezal continues to receive both support and criticism on social media.

“You will change your mind (I did) about @RachelADolezal after you read her fascinating, radical, and righteous book,” one user tweeted.

In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World is available on March 28.

    Doulezal is indeed delusional.The Washington Post ran a review on Sunday that stated that she is yet another white person who thinks she can teach black people how to live in a white world. The reviewer implied that a lot of the stuff in the book about her childhood is wildly overblown.
    Who didn’t know when this story broke that there would be a “book” coming out soon? Doulezal is just another white person trying to make her fortune on the backs of black people. That’s why I’m skeptical about reparations. This country doesn’t have enough money to pay us back for all the money they’ve made on us in slavery, in repressed and stolen wages, overpriced housing, cars, and everything else, in music, sports, and our style. Probably TRILLIONS over the last 300 years.
    Doulezal is just cashing in.
    We Should RESENT the fact that she is claiming that because her childhood was miserable, she’s a black woman. If true, that was her parents fault. Don’t try to get back at them by trying to make money PRETENDING to be black. It’s Insulting.

    sick, crazy, deranged,, psycho. she know nothing of the treatment of slaves, she likens her household chores to what a slave child went thru? so you mean to tell me her parents did not whip but beat her, used her as a foot warmer for the massa, the massa, in her case her daddy, had sex with her to breed more slaves? this bytch is truly crazy. stop giving her 15 minutes of fame. listen to the ignorant shit she says. hell I used to put a towel around my head so I could have long hair like white girls, that don’t make me black and thinking it in my head wont make it so either. I think she needs an awaking, stay woke soul sister…let the police pull her over and harass her, lock her up for nothing, mistreat her young black child, she only wants to live the black is beautiful part, not the real part. BYE FELICIA….

  3. Rachel Dolezal is a sick and twisted individual… Even more sick and twisted are the negroid peoples who endorse her madness. Only a truly deprived self-hating negroid would think that there is nothing wrong with what this person is saying and doing. If negroid people were as sympathetic and understanding of themselves and other Black peoples, as they are this woman, maybe we would have a much better place in this world??? smh :/ BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL when it’s authentic!!!

  4. Why would someone want to be part of a race that has been treated with such horrific injustices in all areas of a civilized life? We do have a way about ourselves that no other race displays. I’m actually not surprised about Rachel emulating us because they all do it. BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL.
