a personal and interpersonal level. Rachel Dolezal born Caucasian, is the former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter in Spokane, Washington from 2014-2015. Dolezal identifies as African American and is completely comfortable with her identity. Dolezal grew up in an abusive white home and having African American adoptive siblings, she found solace in African American, and African culture alike, she was and is still comfortable with her identity as a transracial woman. However, no amount of certainty Dolezal had in her identity could stop the media and ignorance of men and women alike from tearing her down in such a way that cost her career. According to Dolezal’s Netflix special The Rachel Divide, which aired in April of 2018, and depicts Dolezal’s life leading up to her decision to become trans-racial, her time as President of the NAACP Spokane chapter, and the aftermath of her “outing” by the media, she has become unemployable. Because no company wants their brand or reputation tethered to the controversy surrounding Dolezal, she has been essentially blacklisted. In the documentary we see former allies of Dolezal who stood beside her in protests and demonstrations speak out against Dolezal in disapproval. Although the NAACP has no rules stating that the President of any chapter be a person of colour, the common perception in the media and amongst people of colour represented by the NAACP believe that the position should be held by a person of colour, and not by a visibly white person. Once again, we see the example of women being perceived as either essentially entirely irrational and immoral, or entirely kind and benevolent. Nobody questioned Dolezal’s integrity while she was fighting for equality and rights alongside naturally born coloured men and women alike. However, once Dolezal’s scandal was “exposed” she immediately became all bad, irrational and immoral for the perceived trickery, because until this point in time there lacked an existing colloquial understanding of the term transracial (The Rachel Divide). One noteworthy article written by Syreeta McFadden, a professor of English in New York, for NBC News explores the documentary in an internalized sexist tone and attacks Dolezal’s right to self-identity. McFadden attacks Dolezal in the article by trying to quantify Dolezal’s “whiteness” stating that, Her misconstruction of black identity is evident to viewers as a tool to process pain inflicted by a kind of white violence. Dolezal is the second child born to white fundamentalist Christian parents whose faith and pro-life stance guided them to adopt four black children, who they raised in a socially isolated and homogeneous community in rural Montana. We learn in interviews that her adoptive sister was beaten with “glue gun glue stick” and “black baboon whip” and, later, that her adoptive brother and now-son Izaiah suffered similar abuses. Though she’s never clear about what abuse she might have suffered at the hands of her parents, Ruthanne and Larry Dolezal (who in television interview clips present a “normal” and “respectable” kind of whiteness familiar to many). But their public efforts to discredit their daughter’s elaborate lie surround her identity was apparently in service to another kind of violence: To defend their birth son, Josh — who at the moment of the Dolezal’s unmasking, faced charges of sexual abuse against his adopted sister Esther.
