Rachel Dolezal has been said to be many things. An educator, liar and she’s now a plagiarist. Through the power of social media and people with an astute eye for art, one user on Twitter uncovered an exact duplicate of artwork that Dolezal was passing off as her own.
Rachel Dolezal's painting The Shape of Our Kind is a near duplicate of J.M.W. Turner's 1840 The Slave Ship. pic.twitter.com/DGC7GkkPiu

Twitter user Jolie Adams posted Dolezal’s “The Shape of Our Kind” with J.M.W. Turner’s 1840 work “The Slave Ship.”
And clearly unless Dolezal is also an artist from 1840, she’s a copycat.
If you’re interested in buying art from Dolezal, a piece is currently on sale for $50,000 on eBay.
