SPOKANE, Wash. — Remember Rachel Dolezal?

She is the white woman who pretended to be black and became president of her local NAACP chapter. After she was found out, she was forced to resign from her role in the organization. (And yes, she still identifies as being black.)

Lately, things have supposedly gone from bad to worse for Dolezal after reports she is living on food stamps and fears losing her home.

It would seem Dolezal is so recognizable and ashamed of her actions that she can't find a job to save her life. She has applied for over a hundred jobs, but the only offers she has received are from porn companies and reality shows.

Thankfully, a friend paid her rent for February but Dolezal believes she will soon lose her home.

She said it's an awful backlash but she's not going to apologize for how she feels about herself or for seeing the world through black eyes.

"I identify as black. Nothing about whiteness describes who I am," Dolezal said.

Dolezal announced she does have a new book coming out in March titled "In Full Color: Finding My Place In A Black and White World."

So maybe she won't go broke after all.
