Rachel Dolezal, the white former NAACP leader who resigned after it was revealed she had lied for years about being black, has allegedly announced that she is pregnant with her third child on her Instagram account.
Dolezal created a false black identity (despite previously identifying as white) and built a long-term career as an anti-racist activist. She has a private account on Instagram, on which the gossip blog Gossip Blog reports she shared of three baby bears accompanied by the caption:
“One of my sons is a grown-man at 21, one thinks he’s grown at 13, and another one is still cooking, but they are all three my precious beloved babies, and I am a mean momma bear if anyone gets between me & my cubs!”
The news seems to reignite the obsession with Dolezal and her life. Dolezal, who still insists that she is a black woman, has become a meme unto herself. She has been compared to the infamous black-and-blue/white-and-gold dress but also to Caitlyn Jenner. She has become a verbal touchstone, a shorthand used to communicate cultural identity theft—even as recently as this weekend’s VMAs.

In June, Dolezal’s parents Larry and Ruthanne Dolezal, who are both white, told US Weekly it “baffles us as much as anyone” that their daughter claims to be black.
