The bizarre and sad story of Rachel Dolezal is still being deconstructed across the media spectrum, with both liberal and conservative outlets adding their take on the fact that Dolezal lied about her race to rise through the ranks of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP.
Why she would do this is anyone’s guess, and it’s possible that in the weeks to come, some sort of insight into her mental state may come to light. But the deliberate attention to detail she put into maintaining her fraudulent identity is downright cringeworthy.
On example is this tweet from the Spokane NAACP Twitter account with a picture of Dolezal with man she claimed to be her father:

Dolezal’s personal Twitter account is just ugh:
