The saga of Rachel Dolezal and her bizarre rationale behind posing as a Black woman has been puzzling to some observers. Earlier Monday, the former Spokane, Wash. NAACP president admitted that she was born white during a television interview but is still holding on the notion that she identifies as Black.
Dolezal was a guest on nationally-syndicated talk show The Real, bravely sitting in the hot seat as hosts Tamar Braxton-Herbert, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai all took turns asking pointed questions. Many of the questions focused on Dolezal’s journey into presenting herself as Black despite her documented genetic roots.
But it was Dolezal’s admittance that she was indeed born white that garnered a passionate standing ovation from audience members, many who looked to be women of color. This response didn’t exactly deter Dolezal from her now-infamous stances regarding how she sees herself, however.
On the comments section of The Real’s website, fans were split in how the episode was handled. Some applauded the frank nature of the hosts and their questions while others felt they were attacking Dolezal and not giving her an opportunity to explain herself.
In fairness, Dolezal didn’t exactly stand firmly as one would expect considering her bold assertion, but there did appear to be some difficulty in she getting a word in at times.
