Rachel Dolezal Admits She Was "Born White" While Appearing On "The Real"


rachel-dolezal-braids.jpgThe Internet's greatest casualty of 2015, Rachel Dolezal, appeared on The Real -- a roundtable discussion featuring a panel made up of women of color, including Loni Love, Tamar Braxton-Herbet, Tamera Mowery-Housely, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Bailon.

Naturally, the show's hosts had some questions for their infamous, "black-identifying" guest, specifically what box she checks off on forms asking to delineate race. 

"I didn't have to check anything," Rachel replied, after being ask how she identified her application to her alma mater, Howard University -- a traditionally all-black college.

After some other unbelievably glib proclamations, including that she has "absolutely" walked the walk in the daily struggles that come with being a woman of color, Dolezal is confronted head on by Jeannie Mai, who bluntly says, "You were not born black, so when you say you are black, it makes it hard for people to understand where you're coming from."

Congrats to the ladies of The Real for finally breaking the seemingly impenetrable, pathological wall of Rachel Dolezal.
