Spokane NAACP leader cancels meeting amid furor – Yahoo News

The Political Agitator response: This is the right thing to do. Okay facts: Rachel has issues with her parents, fine personal I ain’t got nothing to do with that. She had some adopted black siblings and was married to a black man and engaged to another black man, well I ain’t got nothing to do with that. She has stated she has 2 white biological parents but she considers herself black, well I ain’t got nothing to do with that however that makes me think she is confused. She is the President of the local NAACP in Spokane and although I am not a member of that chapter I am a life fully paid member of the NAACP and I have a problem with the integrity of this woman. I don’t care about her being white and being the President of the chapter, I have a problem with her integrity. Now the members can call a meeting because with the amount of signatures required they can legally do that.

Dolezal sent out an email Sunday canceling the monthly membership meeting “due to the need to continue discussion with regional and national NAACP leaders.” (Source: Read more)

The bizarre story of Rachel Dolezal, the NAACP administrator who considers herself black despite white biological parents, adds a twist to Mooney’s prophecy. Unlike most impersonators, Dolezal seems wholeheartedly committed to living as a black person. Her failed reinvention is a lesson about racism, privilege, and identity as choice. (Source: Read more)
