'Is This a Parallel Race Universe?': Ingraham Reacts to New Dolezal Remarks
Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP official who made headlines last year, now says she has "no regrets" about pretending to be African-American.
Dolezal, who was born to white parents, was confronted last year by a reporter who had figured out her true background.
Dolezal, who now has a book coming out, was asked by Savannah Guthrie of NBC News whether she has any regrets about what she did.
Dolezal answered that she wasn't sure what Guthrie was referring to, but said "I don't have any regrets about how I identify. I'm still me."
"I do wish that I had could have really given myself permission to name and really own the me in me earlier in life," said Dolezal, calling her racial identity "a complex issue."
Fox and Friends asked Laura Ingraham for her reaction this morning, asking whether this is actually "complex."
Ingraham likened Dolezal to a politician, saying she never answers questions and "bends definitive concepts."
“She continues to speak about this as if we’re living in a parallel race universe here. … Imagine if a conservative white woman started saying 'OK, I’m black.' You'd have like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton chaining themselves to the studio doors!" said Ingraham.
“We’re bending gender, we’re bending race, we’re bending politics. Is there anything we're not bending today? There’s no definitive anything. It’s just anything goes.”
