“Race faker” Rachel Dolezal is back in the news, desperately trying to make some money with a new book.

Here are 12 shocking claims from the new book:

  • She “knew” she was black at an early age, despite being a blonde Caucasian girl in Montana and not meeting a black person until she was 10 years old. “I’d stir the water from the hose into the earth … and make thin, soupy mud, which I would then rub on my hands, arms, feet, and legs,” Dolezal writes. {snip}
  • Her father walked around naked frequently.
  • Her family forced her to eat her own vomit when she didn’t finish a bowl of oatmeal.
  • She wore clothes made from dog fur and elk antlers.
  • Her brother Josh played “chicken head baseball,” hitting butchered chickens’ heads with a metal bat.
  • Her brother molested her when she was 12 years old.
  • Her family adopted four black children sole for the tax deductions, according to Dolezal.
  • She still sees herself as black, calling race a “social construct” used to pigeonhole people. {snip}
  • She found “solace” in the autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, a famous slave who lived through emancipation. {snip}
  • She was “too black” for her black husband Kevin Moore in Mississippi, so she untwisted her braids and stopped tanning to look more white at his request.
  • She eventually left Moore and “once again embraced my inclination toward Black aesthetics.” She started identifying herself as black, taught African studies at Eastern Washington University and became president of the NAACP’s Spokane chapter. {snip}
  • After leaving Moore, she was diagnosed with PTSD and became bisexual. Dolezal, who has two sons, aged 15 and 1, and helped raise a stepbrother who is now 21, told the AP she wrote the book to “settle the score.” She says none of the book is fiction, though there are many doubters after her “black-ish-ish” controversy.
