Rachel Dolezal is officially the ultimate progressive.
Dolezal, who was born white but became the leader of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s (NAACP) Spokane, Wash. chapter after representing herself as African-American (her supporters claim she’s “transracial“), is fluid in other ways, too.
“I’d guess I’m also one of the youngest presidents [of the NAACP],” Dolezal said in a December interview with the publication Spokane Faith and Values. “As a single mom who has lived on the poverty line and identifies as bisexual, perhaps some of my other demographics are also a first for Spokane. I know there is a strong majority of older straight men with strong church ties leading many of the branches nationally.”
Some of her other demographics? How many demographics, exactly, does she have?
1. Black (but not really)
2. Possibly transracial
3. Single mom
4. “Has lived on the poverty line”
5. Into both women and men
