Sure, we’d like to know why she identifies as black if her parents say she’s white. Or, what about that lawsuit against Howard University claiming discrimination?
But what Twitter REALLY wants to know is how did she get her hair to do that?
In one sign that she’s being treated like a black woman, folks are questioning how she nailed the look, from her bronzed complexion to the authentic hairdo.
“Everyone wants to know: How do you do your hair? Is it a perm, is it a weave?” NBCBLK’s Amber Payne asked her in an interview. “Everybody’s asking.”
It’s true. From long braids to curly weave, her various hairstyles have been the object of ridicule, admiration and speculation. As one person said on Twitter: “I know hairdressers traditionally keep secrets, but whoever did Rachel Dolezal’s hair all these years must have buried Hoffa, too.”
It comes as little surprise that her fascination with African-American culture would extend to beauty and hair care. Her LinkedIn profile includes “Master Artist, Model, Ethnic Hair Stylist and Piano Teacher” among past positions.
One person even dug up a talk the Eastern Washington University adjunct professor gave on the role of hairstyles in the Black Power movement.
