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.”
