It seems to me money wasn't Rachel Dolezal's motive to pretend she's black, so she's not a classic con artist. Not a criminal. Just someone with emotional problems; as the manosphere says, an attention whore. That's what got the better of her in pure Greek tragic fashion. Craving still more sympathy (which she already abundantly had in white liberal Spokane), she put racially harassing mail in her own mailbox; because of that, some inquirers found her parents. She sure got attention, just not the kind she wanted.
At first I thought the really interesting question is if the NAACP has the right to make membership rules and kick someone like her out, why not all-white or all-gentile institutions? (Freedom of association: why principled American conservatives opposed the civil-rights movement. The losing side in that had constitutional rights to stand on.) The doctrine of our betters saith: because whites used to have power. But it turns out you don't have to be black to belong to or hold office in the NAACP. Fair enough. Still, she can't be trusted and has embarrassed the organization; she should be expelled. Obviously she knows the game's over ("we're all from the African continent"); my guess is she'll resign and try to hide for a while, before her lust for attention gets her started again.
Her disguise seemed more convincing on some days, such as in the picture of the sidewalk march.
You need not be a psychologist to figure her out. Interesting to conservatives, particularly conservative Christians: she's the daughter of Nice White People, (hippie-ish?) do-gooder Christian missionaries who (ostentatiously?) adopted several blacks. In an arguably hurtful way (rivals for Mommy's and Daddy's love), she's heard Black Is Better all her life. (A distortion of Christian teachings about exalting the lowly and defending the oppressed.)
The jokes come easily: "Spray-Tan Lives Matter." ("Black Lives Matter" is obnoxious, implying that your political opponent thinks they don't when he has said or done no such thing. Slander.)
And of course a black has got her sussed; never mind the anti-white stuff here. Like many blacks, Gazi Kodzo's charismatic and socially attuned. That is one infectious laugh.
Of course she knows that in American culture, a smidge of black makes you black. That was the basis of her lie.
I don't think she meant to hurt blacks. But I don't think she really cares about them either except as props in her autobiographical fantasy.
Of course she moved to a whitopia such as Spokane to get positive attention. Blacks are likely to see through her, as they did Obama when they handed him a defeat in his first Chicago election.
What a mess.
