The woman who resigned as head of a local NAACP branch after her parents said she was white said Tuesday that she started identifying as black around the age of five, Rachel Dolezal said that's when she drew self-portraits with a brown crayon. She said she "takes exception" to the contention that she tried to deceive people.
Dolezal said Tuesday on NBC'S "Today" Show that some of the discussion about her has been "viciously inhumane." She added, I really don't see why they're in such a rush to whitewash some of the work I have done, who I am, how I have identified." She has resigned as president of the Spokane, Washington branch of the NAACP, lost her position as a part-time African studies instructor at a local university, lost her job as a freelance newspaper columnist and become the subject of a probe by the city Ethics Commission.
The furor has touched off national debate over racial identity and divided the NAACP itself.
