Rachel Dolezal To Matt Lauer on The Today Show: “I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon, and black curly hair.”

rachel-dolezal

Rachel Dolezal broke her silence with TODAY‘s Matt Lauer in an exclusive interview, as she identifies as black, and has been doing so since the tender age of five.

In the interview, Rachel dodge the bullets, as Matt clearly asked her a series that were very direct and to the point, so that there’s a clear understanding as to why she “played” the African-American role.

Quotes from Rachel:

“I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon, and black curly hair.”

“I do take exception to that because it’s a little more complex than me identifying as black or answering a question of, are you black or white?”

“I have a huge issue with blackface. This is not some freak “Birth of a Nation” mockery blackface performance,” she said. “This is on a very real, connected level. How I’ve had to go there with the experience, not just a visible representation, but with the experience.”

Clearly Rachel has been dealing with a complex issue for some time now, but even the complex side has an expiration date when you add other factors in that she has done to “protect” herself. At this point, Rachel is a fraud. The interview didn’t help state her claim at all, as she stated nothing with “facts” that would her side of the story.

Rachel, our prayers goes out to you. It’s time for a nice long vacation.

There are a number of talents that blessed our time while passing through but we’re most certain that chances are, Tupac has a firm spot in that mix as well.

The idea of accomplishing a goal as such has been a thought, too far fetch to develop into reality, that is until now. Check out more after the jump.

Trend Spotting: Is Plaid Becoming A Fashion Staple With The Fellas?

PlaidCollage.jpg

Plaid has always come and gone. It’s never really been a constant figure in the fashion community, especially amongst the fellas who are of course most likely not to commit 100 percent to any fashion trends.

But it’s last encore a few years ago has not died down, and just when you thought it did … BOOM, three of the Worlds top artists (Well, two and a possible in my game of spades) show up on the same stage at different times sharing the same woman, PLAID.

Beyonce Vs. Rihanna: Who’s Cover Was The Fly-est?

 

Well of course, you know my vote (Rae speaking)! Yes, you know I had to be reminded of what Rihanna‘s GQ cover even looked like after I saw Beyonce’s uber sexy situation! However, the similarities are striking as far as flesh is concerned, and it does pose a question, who’s cover was the fly-est? Let’s remove the writing shall we?
