Is Pretend Black Rachel Dolezal Sorry That She Deceived People for Years About Her Race?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Former NAACP executive Rachel Dolezal shocked America (and probably the world) last month when she was caught lying about her race, duping people for years, including the NAACP, by masquerading as a black woman even though both of her biological parents are white.

One would think that after her self-created embarrassing fiasco, most people would be humiliated after being caught living a lie and deceiving so many people for so many years. But not so for phony black Rachel Dolezal, who in an interview posted Sunday by Vanity Fair, expressed no remorse or apologies for her years of deception.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]

As Vanity Fair reported, after almost 40 days after her outing, Dolezal “is still unapologetically identifying as a black woman, still sure that any confusion about her singular story can be explained, still sure she’ll be back in the movement as soon as people stop misunderstanding her.”

“I just feel like I didn’t mislead anybody. I didn’t deceive anybody,” she Dolezal said.

Dolezal went on to say that if anyone felt lied to she’s only “sorry that they feel that way.”

“If people feel misled or deceived, then sorry that they feel that way, but I believe that’s more due to their definition and construct of race in their own minds than it is to my integrity or honesty, because I wouldn’t say I’m African American, but I would say I’m black, and there’s a difference in those terms.”

Pretending to be something you’re not, inauthenticity, used to be condemned by society, or even joked about, as Steve Martin did in his 1979 classic comedy, “The Jerk.”
