Just in case you were wondering, Rachel Dolezal still considers herself black (despite being born to two white parents) and is still insisting she did nothing wrong. During a promotional teaser for Monday’s (April 17) Dr. Phil, the infamous transracial figure is holding strong to her “African-American roots.” Dr. Phil tried to get 39-year-old Dolezal to take responsibility for the lies she told about being a black woman but Dolezal remained defiant.
“You pretended to be black. You perpetrated a lie. You agree with that, right?” Phil asked.
“No.” Dolezal replied.
Back in June 2015, Dolezal was thrusted into the spotlight after it was revealed the former Spokane, Wash., NAACP president wasn’t a black woman despite having convinced others. Social media had a field day with the information spawning the hashtag #AskRachel.
