"Even if I was lying, this is an outrage. This is America, I can be any damn race I want. It's the 28th Amendment. This is oppression in the highest form, and it's everything I have fought so hard against.One day last year, after I smoked a bunch of pot, I thought I was Chinese for like an entire week. Nobody said a damn thing to me. All of the sudden this is some huge deal."
Dolezal says that she doesn't know what her future holds, but says she can still make a difference in the community to improve racial relations.
"Becoming white again has really been an eye opening experience. I got like 100 pre-approved credit cards and Banana Republic coupons in the mail, the next day. Now that I've found out I'm white there seem to be all kinds of avenues open to me. I just applied at the Ku Klux Klan. I've got experience in the racial relations field, so it's a move that makes sense."
