In a new interview with the Today Show, Rachel Dolezal says she’s looking forward to writing a book about racial identity. As you know, last year, she made headlines after being accused of falsely portraying her racial identity. She now says,
I don’t have any regrets about how I identify. I’m still me and nothing about that has changed.
Reflecting on the controversy, she explains
I do wish I could have given myself permission to really name and own the me of me earlier in life. It took me almost 30 years to get there. Certainly, I feel like it’s a complex issue. How do you just sum up a whole life of kind of coming into who you are in a sound bite? Those conversations? I feel like moving forward. I don’t have any regrets about that.
On her life now, she states,
It’s been some work to rebuild and get things back on track with life. We’re doing well. Looking at some new opportunities going into 2016.
