In what could be the most explosive episode of The Real to date, co-host Tamar Braxton pretty much goes off on the latest guest, Rachel Dolezal.
Dolezal became a topic of conversation in many households after the former NAACP President for Spokane, Washington,was outed for pretending to be a Black woman for years when she is actually Caucasian. Dolezal decided to sit down with the very diverse panel in a now highly anticipated episode that’s slated to air Monday (Nov. 2).
Jeannie Mai asked Dolezal which box of race would she have checked if she had to choose.
Dolezal said, “I think when it comes to filing out forms, the form in particular usually defines things. I’ve been a professor of Black history, Black studies…”
Braxton chimed in and asked, “But which one you check though?”
Dolezal then confessed that she checked both boxes for White and Black.
“Because we all have human origins in the continent of Africa.”
But Braxton wasn’t the only one who got blunt with Dolezal.
Loni Love checked her too in a different teaser.
She starts by telling her, “You’re in my house. So let’s get real.”
Braxton also asks her in that trailer, “So you’ve walked the walk of a Black woman?” after Dolez said race is a “state of mind.”
Loni added that she could never pull what Dolezal did.
“I’m black. I can’t be you.”
