Rachel Dolezal: ‘I Don’t Identify as African-American, I Identify as Black’
DOLEZAL: "Well, I don't identify as African-American. I identify as black. I am part of the pan-African diaspora. I definitely feel like, in America, even though race is a social construct and we've acknowledged this in academia and in science, there is a line drawn in the sand. There still are sides. Politically there's a black side and a white side, and I stand unapologetically on the black side. I stand with my own internal sense of self and my own values. I stand with my sons, I stand with my sister and I also stand really with a greater cause of challenging the myth of white supremacy."
