The Best Black Twitter reactions to the #RachelDolezal fiasco
June 12, 2015 at 4:40 am
Black Twitter had a ball Thursday night after the parents of Spokane NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal revealed that their daughter is actually White and has been pretending to be Black for over a decade.
“She’s our birth daughter and we’re both of European descent,” her father, Larry Dolezal, said. “We’re puzzled and it’s very sad.”
So are we, Larry. So are we.
To make matters worse, when asked by a reporter if she was of African-American descent, Dolezal didn’t seem to have any of her receipts in order and walked off in a very peculiar, confused rage.https://twitter.com/deray/status/609179032006041601
As always, Black Twitter came through in full force with hilarious memes, gifs and quotable tweets when the news of Dolezal’s fraudulent racial history went viral.
