Rachel Dolezal Interview: ‘I Would’ Do It Again [VIDEO]

Rachel Dolezal, the white former president of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP, told NBC’s Today show that she doesn’t think of herself as white. “I identify as black,” Dolezal said, adding that she was first identified as “transracial” when she was working in Idaho, and then people started identifying her as biracial. Dolezal said her identity as a black woman was cemented when she got custody of her adopted brother, who is black, and he told her she was his “real” mom. “I certainly can’t be seen as white and be Izaiah’s mom,” Dolezal said. Asked if she would do it all the same, Dolezal said: “I would.”
