From the Daily Dot

The Rachel Divide showcases just how the story that introduced Rachel Dolezal to the world uprooted her life, but those hoping for any kind of reflection or retrospect from its subject will be left disappointed. Dolezal – former Spokane, Washington NAACP president who identifies as Black but isn't – struggles to find a job after she's let go from her position at Eastern Washington University, at one point complaining that no place wants to be the first to hire her again. The film might not have necessarily aimed to humanize Dolezal, but it ends up happening to an extent as it closely follows her life. Still, The Rachel Divide can't reach a consensus on what Dolezal has done and how it affects her work, and instead shows her embracing many of her old ideas. It feels like a feedback loop – one that we're bound to hear again soon enough.
