Rachel Dolezal, the transracial former NAACP leader, who pretended she was black, is back.
The woman – who was born white but identifies as black – is appearing in a new Netflix documentary.
The 40-year-old from Spokane, Washington, sparked outrage when her parents revealed she was posing as a black woman.
Netflix released the documentary’s trailer on Wednesday but were dragged online for promoting someone who is ‘fraudulent’.
Dolezal’s teenage son Franklin, who is biracial, is featured in the trailer.
The young boy implores his mother to stop publicizing her beliefs.
‘I resent some of her choices and I resent some of the words she has spoken in interviews,’ Franklin said during the documentary’s trailer.
Dolezal is a former civil rights activist and African studies instructor.
In June 2015, her parents revealed her actual heritage.
They told the press their daughter was posing as a black woman.
Dolezal claims ethnicity is not biological and compared being ‘transracial’ to being transgender.
She then released a book titled ‘In Full Color.’
But she was further criticized for using her ‘white privilege’ to make her arguments.
The new film, which Netflix describes as an ‘intimate documentary’, is titled ‘The Rachel Divide’ and features interviews with her son.
‘I really do not want to focus on this for the rest of my life,’ son Franklin said at the beginning of the trailer.
‘When something gets destroyed, you have to rebuild it,’ Dolezal said.
‘You can’t just pretend that it didn’t happen and everything gets fixed.’
But her son seems annoyed by his mother’s need for the limelight.
‘This book coming out and this documentary might just backfire like everything else has backfired,’ Franklin said.
‘Trust me, it is going to bite me in the a**.’
Rachel is seen crying and tells the filmmakers she’s worried about how this documentary could affect her family.
But she doesn’t stop the filming.
Rachel – who changed her name to Nkechinyere Amare Diallo – is a mother of two sons.
One of whom she had just two years ago after the controversy started.
Her youngest son is two years old and named Langston Attickus. He is named after the famous black poet, author and activist Langston Hughes.
‘I’m putting my kids out there,’ she said during the trailer. ‘It’s hard.’
The documentary will first premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival before it is released on Netflix on April 27.
But already people have taken to Twitter in outrage that Netflix chose to create the documentary.
The statement on Twitter said: Like all subjects for our documentaries, Rachel Dolezal did not receive any payment for this project.’
The filmmakers Laura Brownson and Roger Ross Williams say they were the ones who wanted to cover Dolezal’s story because of the larger issues it brings up.
But social media users were disappointed in Netflix for using their money to promote Dolezal’s story.
One user said: ‘There are millions of black femmes and non-binary people in the world that deserve to be heard…and the fact that I have to see her name on my screen makes me so so so angry.’
