Rachel Dolezal has finally come clean about her race and she has admitted she is white but will love to be indentified as black.

The former Washington state local NAACP leader who lied about her race earlier this year in an interview with NBC, finally gave into the truth on national TV on Monday, November 2.

"I was biologically born white, to white parents," Dolezal told the co-hosts of 'The Real' - to a thunderous applause.

The 37-year-old Dolezal, who was president of the NAACP chapter in Spokane until June, when her estranged parents outed her as white, did face a somewhat hostile all-black panel on Monday.

However, Dolezal reiterated that she does identify as black"Sometimes how we feel is more powerful than how we are born" Dolezal, who's allegedly pregnant, explained. "Blackness can be defined as philosophical, cultural, biological, a lot of different things for a lot of different people. I do think you have to walk the walk if that’s how you are."

When asked by Tamar Braxton asked if she "walked the walk" of someone who was black, Dolezal said, "absolutely."

The co-hosts were not all that impressed. Loni Love seemed to lecture Dolezal, telling her she can switch back and forth between black and white to suit her needs.

"Let me tell you something: I’m black. I can’t be you. I can’t reverse myself. Let’s check you, Rachel. If the police stopped me, you could throw that off and show that nice fine hair up under, and you might get away. I may not. I may not even make in the jail," Love said.

Braxton also asked Dolezal if she feels she has deceived anyone. "No, I don’t," Dolezal said. "Don’t we all have the right to be exactly who we are?"

But then again, if  people can say they are not men/women and transit into the opposit sex, why can't a white woman identify herself as black or vice versa?
