Rachel Dolezal’s chameleon appearance over time, in photos

This blog likes to look at patterns that occur over time, usually in data, not photos.

Today’s post looks at Rachel’s masquerade over the years.

The transition from German-Swedish-Czech heritage to  black woman is remarkable.

Incredibly, no one in Spokane noticed this? Seriously?

Keep the above photo in mind when you read that

She talked about her ex-husband and her abuse,” Campbell says. “The way she explained it, was that she had to ascribe to Eurocentric beauty standards. She was presenting herself as a white person because of her husband’s expectations.

She claimed her ex-husband made her have straight blonde hair (which she claims is not her “natural” hair even though its the hair she grew up with).

This is not her real hair and definitely not “natural”.

Likely to be after the fake “natural” hair look started on her 36th birthday. Without her “black” makeup and spray on tan.

After the “white woman” phase, she began to appear with much darker skin complexion.

If her skin complexion seems to you to have changed over time, your eyes are deceiving you says Dolezal:

The more white supremacy groups did to me and my family, the darker my complexion became in the public’s eyes, without even seeing me. It’s like, ‘Oh, she got blacker and blacker and blacker…’ Now, the the audience is deciding, reframing my identity.

About that hair

Her “hair” seems to have stopped growing since the “natural” look began perhaps … take a look – only her hairdresser knows. As well as becoming longer, straighter, going back to corn rows, and then back to short curly hair.

Confirmed: This is not her real hair

This was hiding in plain sight. But no one noticed?

Spokane has so little diversity (click to see!) it has fake black residents.

News story commenters pointed this fakery out – repeatedly – as far back as 2010. But it took until 2015 and KXLY’s Jeff Humphrey asking her if she is, in fact, African-American. She said she did not understand the question and stormed off.

At least we can say, with all the news people flying in – its undoubtedly good for the local economy, at least for a few days.
