Three years ago, Rachel Dolezal purported herself to be black when she was actually born white. When her parents revealed the truth, she stepped down as president of the Spokane, Washington NAACP, was fired from a police ombudsman position and lost her job teaching African studies. Now, she has been charged with theft by welfare fraud, perjury and false verification for public assistance in obtaining $9,000 in welfare funds.
Dolezal changed her name legally to Nkechi Diallo in 2016. She says she still “identifies” as black.
Investigators caught on to her when she published her autobiography “In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.”
Spokane Station KXLY reported,
An investigator with the department’s Office of Fraud and Accountability recalled reading news articles that Dolezal had received public assistance, prompting him to seek a review of her records. The review showed she was actively receiving assistance and had been reporting her only source of income as $300 a month in gifts from friends, according to court documents.
Scanning a company website, the investigator also determined that the publisher of Dolezal’s book typically offered contracts that included advance payments of $10,000 to $20,000, court records show.
A subpoena requesting her self-employment and banking records was served last year, and she complied with it, according to court records. These revealed that $83,294 was deposited in her US bank account between August 2015 and September 2017, the records show.
Another investigator found in internet searches that Dolezal was promoting her book as well as “the sale of her art, soaps, and handmade dolls,” according to court documents.
Dolezal later filed a “change of circumstance” that revealed a partial additional income of $20,000, the court documents say.
According to Fox News, she also promoted her in-home hair salon on Instagram. She was also the subject of a Netflix documentary that debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York last month.
Being comfortable in your own skin is important to healthy life. Rachel has never been happy with herself and has been paying the price for it for years. Now she’s charged with a felony. Her arraignment is June 6.
