Rachel Dolezal: There is "No Biological Proof" I am not Black

Speaking with Savannah Guthrie, Rachel Dolezal claimed that there is "no biological proof" that she is not black because she has not had her parents' DNA tested. She pushed further, stating that she is "definitely not white," despite the fact that she sued Howard University in 2005 claiming they discriminated against her because she was white.

“When someone asks, 'Are you black?’ which I actually don’t get asked very often until recently, since a few days ago, I say, ‘Yeah, I am black,’” she told Ms. Guthrie.

“I haven’t had a DNA test," Ms. Dolezal continued. "There’s been no biological proof that Larry and Ruthanne are my biological parents. I’m not necessarily saying that I can prove they’re not, but I don’t know that I can actually prove they are. I mean the birth certificate was issued a month and a half after I’m born. Certainly there were no medical witnesses to my birth. It was in the woods.”
Ms. Dolezal continued, “I definitely am not white. Nothing about being white describes who I am. So, you know, what’s the word for it? The closest thing that I can come to is if you’re black or white, I’m black."

She went on, "I’m more black than white. On a level of values, lived experience currently. In this moment, that’s the answer. That’s the accurate answer from my truth. But I hope the dialogue continues to push against, ‘What is race? What is ethnicity?’”

  8. " There is "No Biological Proof" I am not Black"

    There is "No Biological Proof" or any proof that she is sane, rational or not from the planet Mongo either! She seems to be a Par excellence Confabulator.
