Rachel Dolezal: "I Consider Myself Black"

In Rachel Dolezal first interview since the revelations, she told television network KREM news: "I actually don't like the term African-American. I prefer black, and I would say that if I was asked I would definitely say that yes I do consider myself to be black." She added that she 'can understand' why some people believe that she misrepresented herself. The civil rights activists has made headlines several times since 2009 as the victim of hate crimes, including death threats and an alleged run-in with neo-Nazis in Idaho.
