And she’s back.
Rachel Dolezal has a new book coming out and in it, she’s discussing her “trans-racial” abilities. In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World will be released on March 28, 2017, but is available for pre-order on Amazon.
The synopsis of the book states:
With In Full Color, Rachael Doležal describes the path that led her from being a child of white evangelical parents to an NAACP chapter president and respected educator and activist who identified as black. Along the way, she’ll discuss the deep emotional bond she formed with her four adopted black siblings, the sense of belonging she felt while living in black communities in Jackson, Mississippi and Washington, D.C., and the discrimination she’s suffered while living as a black woman.
Her story is nuanced and complex, and in the process of telling it, she forces us to consider race in an entirely new light—not as a biological imperative, but as a function of the experiences we have, the culture we embrace, and, ultimately, the identity we choose.
Of course Twitter wasn’t feeling the book:
Which white actress in blackface will play Rachel Dolezal in the Lifetime movie based on her hack book about her lie of a life?

Rachel Dolezal got a book deal about being black when black authors struggle to get published. I cannot. pic.twitter.com/1COTDD434N

Every time you see/hear something about Rachel Dolezal's book, go buy an indie press book written by a POC. It's the right thing to do.

And this tweet basically sums up the book:
If the first line of Rachel Dolezal's book isn't "I'm White" I'm not interested
