If you found yourself missing America’s favorite transracial role model, you’re in luck! Rachel Dolezal is back in the news with her new tell-all memoir, In Full Color.
While the book won’t be in stores until March of 2017, she was nice enough to unveil a little preview on the book’s Amazon page.
With In Full Color, Rachael Doležal describes the path that led her from being a child of white evangelical parents to an NAACP chapter president and respected educator and activist who identified as black. Along the way, she’ll discuss the deep emotional bond she formed with her four adopted black siblings, the sense of belonging she felt while living in black communities in Jackson, Mississippi and Washington, D.C., and the discrimination she’s suffered while living as a black woman.
Her story is nuanced and complex, and in the process of telling it, she forces us to consider race in an entirely new light—not as a biological imperative, but as a function of the experiences we have, the culture we embrace, and, ultimately, the identity we choose.
So, basically, for a cool $14.97 you can hear all about how oppressed white Rachel Dolezal felt after choosing to “identify” as black. We feel for her.
Not everyone is fumbling for their credit cards. Some people on Twitter were actually upset about Dolezal’s memoir.
Publishers are more interested in a white woman's experience of being a Black woman than memoirs from ACTUAL Black women.

Where are Rachel Dolezal's parents and why the fuck aren't they dragging her into a mental institution? You're NOT a poc, you never WILL be

But don’t listen to the haters. Rachel Dolezal’s “nuanced and complex” memoir is sure to identify as a modern classic.
