In an interview with Matt Lauer on Tuesday, embattled NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal explained that she drew self-portraits of herself as a little girl with the brown crayon instead of the peach one – and of course, Twitter giggled.
Dolezal, who was born to white parents, told Lauer that she started identifying as black as early as age 5 when “I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon, and black curly hair.”
You could almost hear social media pounce as soon as the words were out of her mouth.
