RACHEL Dolezal, the race-faker who pretended to be black, has lashed out at her critics saying they are “white supremacy folks” and said her ex “repressed her.”
Dolezal, 43, had claimed to be black for more than 10 years until she was exposed.

In June 2015, Dolezal’s parents Larry and Ruthanne revealed she was not actually black.
After facing a backlash, Dolezal eventually admitted she was “biologically born white to white parents,” claiming race is “not coded in your DNA.”
She has now appeared in Jennifer Holness’ Subjects of Desire – which debuts at SXSW this week.
After it was revealed she had white parents, Dolezal was fired from her job as an adjunct professor of Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University and was forced to resign from a leadership position at her local Spokane chapter of the NAACP.

Dolezal told the documentary she had been the victim of “shaming and ridicule” since the scandal broke, The Daily Beast reports.
“I’ve been called an insult to white women and an insult to black women.
“White women are angry because I did what they never would do and went further, like I put 110,” she said, according to the report.
“I didn’t just be that white ally and do a little bit, I canceled my white privilege. I canceled my hair.”
Dolezal added: “For black women, I feel like it’s a reaction to pain. It’s like a trigger to post-traumatic stress,” she said in the documentary, according to the Daily Beast.
“When it comes to white men, that’s the group that I am the most scared of on a level of threat because that’s mostly the white supremacy folks.”
She also claims in the documentary her first husband Kevin Moore, a black man she married in 2000, tried to force her into a “white mold.”
Dolezal claimed Moore’s actions caused her spirit to be “repressed,” the report says.

“He would make comments about how no white woman has that kind of butt, you need to get a respectable white butt,” she said.
While the documentary runs for 103 minutes, Dolezal only appears briefly with the program looking at back beauty around the 50th anniversary of the Miss Black America beauty pageant in 2018.
Holness defended the inclusion of Dolezal in the documentary, saying: “It wasn’t a commercial thought. It wasn’t like I thought, ‘Oh my God, if I put her in, it’ll be controversial!’ No, not at all,” Holness told the Daily Beast.
“I’m doing a film on black women and beauty and this is the first time that I’ve come across a white woman pretending to be black for 10 years when there wasn’t a massive financial benefit,” she said.
“The standard of beauty historically has been white and that has been protected and upheld, so as someone who has that standard, she’s blonde with freckles and green eyes, and stepped away from that, there’s something there.”
In February of this year, Dolezal moaned she couldn’t get a job after pretending to be black.
“I started with applying for all of the things I was qualified for and after interviews and getting turned down, I even applied to jobs that didn’t even require degrees, being a maid at a hotel, working at a casino,” Dolezal said in the Tamron Hall show.
She reiterated she still identifies as “transracial,” saying she “always identified racially as human” but she’s found “more of a home in black culture and the black community.”
“That hasn’t changed,” she added.
“I’m still the same person I was in May of 2015, I’m still doing the work, I’m still pressing forward, but it has been really tough for sure.”
