MICHAEL SMERCONISH: “You went to Howard University for your masters. You were raised with four adopted black siblings. You braided their hair. You married a black guy. I was thinking Caitlyn Jenner as I was reading the book. Is there an analogous situation here?”

RACHEL DOLEZAL: “Well, I think a lot of people have drawn that parallel. And I want to be careful because certainly every category of our identity is, you know, with its own unique circumstances and challenges. But for sure there is some similarity in terms of harmonizing the outer appearance with the inner feeling. In terms of stigmatized identities, some people will forever see me as my birth category and nothing further. And the same with Caitlyn.”
