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.
