As you doubtless know, the 37-year-old Ms. Dolezal was outed last week by her estranged parents. In response, they say, to a reporter's inquiry, they told the world her heritage includes Czech, Swedish and German roots, but not a scintilla of black. In the resulting mushroom cloud of controversy, Ms. Dolezal was forced to resign her leadership of the Spokane office. Interviewed Tuesday by Matt Lauer on "Today," she made an awkward attempt to explain and/or justify herself. "I identify as black," she said, like she thinks she's the Caitlyn Jenner of race. It was painful to watch.
