Former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal has broken her silence and sat down with Matt Lauer of the Today show to tell her side of the story. Dolezal caught national attention after her parents outed her as white woman who has been posing as a black woman for almost a decade.

When asked if she was an African-American woman, Dolezal revealed that she does “identify as black.” During their chat, Dolezal said she began to see herself as black at 5-years-old.

“I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon, and black curly hair,” she said.

The 37-year-old said that she hopes that people will focus more on what it is to be human instead of the racial aspect of what she did.

A$AP Rocky: SVDDXNLY – Part 4/5

In part 4 of the SVDDXNLY Documentary the fans get another in-depth look at ASAP Rocky’s life, celebrity mentors, and friends. ASAP speaks fluently about his humble perspective and opinion about life. I identify with ASAP’s motto of doing right by himself and always doing what he feels is right. The Harlem rapper speaks his truths while immersed in an atmosphere that some would consider negative. There’s weed in every scene or at least some type of reference to it.
