That white woman in Spokane, Washington who "identified" as black, bronzed her skin regularly to darken it, and went on to head the local NAACP and landed a teaching gig on black culture at the local university before she got outed as a crazy Cracker has written an autobiography, as if anyone cared. Fortunately, somebody read it so that you don't have to.
Rachel Dolezal has since changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo, apparently to better reflect her "inner blackness". She's now on food stamps and claims to be "nearly homeless". Perhaps she hopes her little book will address those issues. That seems unlikely.
When she was a young child, Dolezal inexplicably felt an affinity to “blackness” despite growing up in a town with no black people. In the chapter “Hustling to Make a Dollar,” Dolezal equates her childhood chores with “the institution of chattel slavery in America.” Her living conditions made her develop a “similar resourcefulness” as black slaves.
Like many unmindful liberals, Dolezal believes white America is defined solely by middle-class consumerism and values whereas black America is defined entirely by racial and economic struggle.
She goes on to describe the hardships and discrimination she's faced living as a black woman. The reviewer notes that throughout her book (soon to be found in the 50-cent bin at Goodwill, if I'm not mistaken) everything is about her hardships and her feelings. She even goes so far as to verbally attack actual black people for "invalidating her Blackness". That's probably because she lost her university gig and in a particularly racist turn of events, was forced to leave her position as head of the local NAACP. She turned for a time to working as a hairdresser, but business fell off.
Nonetheless, as she carries on with the farce of being a black woman, she seems stunned by the fact that a lot of people consider her to be kind of a freak, and expresses disappointment at being "shunned by family, friends, and community".
She was outed as white by her family, as they got tired of her whole "I'm a poor black woman" thing. I'm not sure that any amount of therapy can help with what ails her.
