Do you remember Rachel Dolezal? She’s the white woman who was living as a black woman and working for the NAACP in Washington State.
Since becoming a national news story she has fallen on hard times.
Rachel Dolezal Says She is Jobless and On the Verge of Being Homeless
Nearly two years after briefly becoming one of the most infamous people in America, Dolezal was interviewed by The Guardian, and revealed that she is destitute and unable to find a job in her hometown of Spokane, Washington.
Today Dolezal is jobless, and feeding her family with food stamps. A friend helped her pay this month’s rent; next month she expects to be homeless. She has applied for more than 100 jobs, but no one will hire her, not even to stack supermarket shelves. She applied for a position at the university where she used to teach, and says she was interviewed by former colleagues who pretended to have no recollection of having met her. The only work she has been offered is reality TV, and porn. She has changed her name on all her legal documents, but is still recognised wherever she goes. People point at her and laugh.
Dolezal pointed out that she wrote a memoir, but it was rejected by 30 publishers before finally being picked up. She attributed this to what she felt was an overriding narrative about her.
She could always move to Massachusetts and run for senate.
It worked for Elizabeth Warren.
