Activist Raquel Evita Saraswati has faked her ‘Arab and Latin’ racial identity as far back as 2004: reports

The Muslim progressive activist who is allegedly pretending to be a person of color has been citing her fabricated “Arab and Latin” heritage for almost 20 years.

Raquel Evita Saraswati, 39, who was outed by The Intercept for pretending to be of Latin, South Asian and Arab descent, spoke to in 2004 about her upcoming wedding, saying she wanted to do something to respect her Arab and Latin culture.

“We want it to be something special, not about hype and not about media,” she told the outlet.

Saraswati was born Rachel Elizabeth Seidel and is referred to as “Raquel Evita Seidel” in the article.

First, there was Rachel Dolezal. Later on, came Jessica Krug, Carrie Bourassa, and Kay LeClaire. Now, there is Raquel Evita Seidel.

I just dont understand these people. Do they just want to be special? Do they feel their "whiteness" is a curse?

“I assure people that as soon as I am capable, I will provide answers to the recent discussion and attack on me. I understand all the reactions you’re having. I am currently taking the time to get to where I can answer in a way that is most helpful and thorough,” she wrote, adding in a later tweet that “more will come”
