Dolezal: My Critics Don’t Know Me and ‘How Hard It Is’

Former Spokane NAACP Head Rachel Dolezal said her critics “don’t know what I’ve actually walked through, and how hard it is” in an interview with Melissa Harris-Perry broadcast on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.”

Dolezal said that she understood why people, including many black women, were angry at her claiming to be black and that “stepping outside of myself, I would probably be enraged.”

She continued, “But, they don’t know me. They really don’t know what I’ve actually walked through, and how hard it is. This has not been something that just is a casual, you know, come and go sort of identity, you know, or an identity crisis or something that’s going to fade away.”

Dolezal concluded that she “absolutely” critiques racial appropriation.
