White NAACP leader says she identifies as black
NEW YORK - Rachel Dolezal says she started identifying as black around the age of 5, when she drew self-portraits with a brown crayon.
Dolezal appeared Tuesday on NBC'S "Today" Show.
She said she "takes exception" to the contention that she tried to deceive people.
Dolezal resigned as president of a local branch of the NAACP after her parents said she was a white woman who for years has posed as African-American.
She says that some of the discussion about her has been "viciously inhumane."
