Rachel Dolezal is getting the full Black experience.
She has been unable to get a job since her transracial controversy that made headlines back in 2015.
The former president of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, Washington was publicly outed by her parents for pretending to be a Black woman. She eventually revealed that she “identifies” as being a Black woman despite the race she was born.
Since then, Dolezal has been let go from her position as an instructor in Africana studies at Eastern Washington University and has struggled to find work.
“After not having a job for six years, I’ve had to create my own job and find ways to provide for my children,” said Dolezal in a recent interview on the Tamron Hall Show. “I started with applying for all the things I was qualified for and after interviews and getting turned down I even applied to jobs that didn’t even require degrees. Being a maid at a hotel, working at a casino. I wasn’t able to get any of those jobs either.”
She blames sites like Google for getting her story wrong.
“There’s so much negativity on just a Google Search…the only place my true story lives is in my book ‘In Full Color,'” continued Dolezal. “People aren’t going to seek out my book if they’re just looking for an employee.”
Her only way of making money is through writing grants for marginalized communities, painting, braiding hair, and hosting pep talks.
Pretending to be Black still haunts Dolezal to this day.
