If you let Rachel tell it, race isn’t ‘black and white.’
“There still are sides. Politically, there’s a black side and a white side, and I stand unapologetically on the black side. I stand with my own internal sense of self and my own values. I stand with my sons. I stand with my sister,” she said. “I also stand there, really, with the greater cause of challenging the myth of white supremacy.”
