Rachel Dolezal on Today: ‘Race Didn’t Create Racism, but Racism Created Race’ What?

One of the only outlets that is guaranteed to never turn away Rachel Dolezal for an interview is TODAY, where she has spoken out about her racial identity before.

About ten months ago, Dolezal said she doesn’t “give two shits” what anyone thinks of her, so today, she appeared on the show to promote her new book all about her life and racial identity.

The former president of the NAACP in Spokane said this:

Race is such a contentious issue, because of the painful history of racism. Race didn’t create racism, but racism created race.

Since she has stated her position that “we all have human origins in the continent of Africa,” her proclamation today isn’t really surprising, but it is still thought-provoking.

What do you think about what she said? Will you be picking up the book?
