Rachel Dolezal, the former Spokane NAACP president who has lied about being black, said she planned to boycott a movie because a white actor played the biblical Moses.
During an Oct. 2014 radio interview in Spokane, the 37-year-old Dolezal was discussing the movie “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” The movie, which told the tale of Moses, starred white English actor Christian Bale.
“A lot of people might go to that film — hopefully nobody goes to that film — we need to boycott that film from my perspective because it’s miseducation,” Dolezal told host Taylor Weech.
“It’s misrepresentation, and it’s highly offensive to the people that actually were living during that time and also to people today, it’s robbing and shredding their ancestry and history,” Dolezal continued, also citing Charlton Heston as another actor who she believes should not have played Moses because he was white.
Heston starred in the 1956 classic “The Ten Commandments.”
Dolezal’s comments about whites co-opting the culture and history of people of other races is deeply ironic given her recent statements after being outed as a white woman. While she has not admitted that she was born to white parents, Dolezal has indicated that she believes that by identifying as a black woman she is a black woman.
On top of misrepresenting her race, Dolezal has also made up other tales, according to her parents. They disputed Dolezal’s claims that she was born in a teepee and her assertion that she and her siblings were physically abused. Dolezal has also claimed that she and civil rights organizations she has worked for have been targeted in at least nine hate crime incidents.
