Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who used to be the head of a local NAACP chapter, is making headlines again for her choice of employment.
The delusional Dolezal, who was outed by her estranged parents as a white woman in June, told Vanity Fair she is now a hairstylist for black women and still identifies herself as a black woman despite her white heritage, in an interview released this weekend.
As she figures out where she’ll land next, Dolezal says she is surviving on one of the skills she perfected as she attempted to build a black identity. At Eastern Washington University, she lectured on the politics and history of black hair, and she says she developed a passion for taking care of and styling black hair while in college in Mississippi. That passion is now what brings in income in the home she shares with Franklin. She says she has appointments for braids and weaves about three times a week. She says that a previous custody agreement with her ex-husband mandates she stays in the Spokane area, but that now her ex may approve a move given recent circumstances.
“I would like to write a book just so that I can send [it to] everybody there as opposed to having to continue explaining,” she says. “After that comes out, then I’ll feel a little bit more free to reveal my life in the racial social-justice movement. I’m looking for the quickest way back to that, but I don’t feel like I am probably going to be able to re-enter that work with the type of leadership required to make change if I don’t have something like a published explanation.”
This is what happens when society insists on accepting mental delusions as factual, people can be trans-anything.
The Twitterverse, who made Dolezal a punch line for about a month, was at it again after the interview was posted.
So Rachel Dolezal is now making money by doing hair weaves & braiding…You can’t make this stuff up…

Rachel Dolezal got fired so she started doing hair. That’s black as hell. She’s dead serious about living this life.
