Rachel Dolezal is now a black hair stylist in Spokane, WA, after losing both her teaching position at Eastern Washington University and her leadership position in the NAACP.
Dolezal’s estranged biological parents exposed her as a white woman who was disguising herself as black, causing an uproar back in June.
In fact, Dolezal still identifies as black.
Amid the controversy, Dolezal lost her teaching job in Eastern Washington University’s African Studies department, as well as her title of ‘president’ for the Spokane chapter of the NAACP.
The 37-year-old has a 13-year-old son that she needs to support, so she has been braiding and weaving black hair to make ends meet.
Apparently she sets aside three days a week for taking hair appointments.
She taught a course at Eastern Washington University about the politics of black hair and she’s been doing her own hair in these styles for years, so we suppose her skills are pretty good at this point.
Considering her last paycheck was in June, Dolezal will probably be working as a hair stylist until she can find her next long-term move.
Reports indicate that her current custody agreement with her ex-husband, Kevin Moore, requires her to remain in Spokane, but apparently he may consider updating the terms so she can move somewhere new.
What do you think Dolezal’s next move should be?
