Rachel Dolezal is the gift of crazy that keeps on giving. And Vanity Fair hopefully got their monies worth with an interview 5 weeks after her crazy was exposed.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Dolezal says she has lost her job and many of her friends.

“I’ve got to figure it out before August 1, because my last paycheck was like $1,800 in June,” Dolezal said after losing her position as the president of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP as well as a part-time teaching job at Eastern Washington University. “[I lost] friends and the jobs and the work and – oh, my God – so much at the same time.”

Insert a “sad face” emoji.

Dolezal still maintains that her blackness isn’t a costume.

“It’s not something that I can put on and take off anymore. Like I said, I’ve had my years of confusion and wondering who I really [was] and why and how do I live my life and make sense of it all, but I’m not confused about that any longer. I think the world might be – but I’m not.”

Oh honey. It’s not the world. It’s you.

So how has Dolezal been surviving since she doesn’t have a job anymore?

This chile is now braiding and doing hair weaves. But she also hopes to garner a book deal. Of course.

“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 said. “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.”

    I’m so done with her and her bullshit. I’m just going to ignore it until she becomes a non-factor.

    Why do those that are half white and half black identify as black ? I would think Halle Berri would identify as white , but she doesn’t. A few years ago a college class was given a DNA test to be revealed at the end of the semester . During the course they were to research their background and express what race they thought they belonged to . When the DNA tests were revealed , there were several surprizes ! Some that thought they were Nordic white had traces of Asian and African blood . Some who thought they were of African or Asian desent had white and American Indian DNA . Maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to judge who or what a person Identifies as .
