Rachel Dolezal NAACP Chapter President was a white woman disguised as black

0saves

Rachel Dolezal, 37-year-old, a highly visible civil rights activist who is also Spokane's National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Chapter President has been exposed by her parents.  

 

On Friday, Rachel’s parents, Larry and Ruthanne Dolezal held a press conference to say that their daughter has been misleading people about her ethnicity for years. The Dolezal’s said their daughter who is white claimed to be African American and has cut them off because she didn't want them ruining her image.

Dolezal worked for years as hardworking and dedicated civil rights activist across Idaho and Washington. She also served as an adjunct professor teaching Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University.

Dolezal faces ethics probe for falsely claiming on an application to be a black woman.

In a statement released by the NAACP, the organization said,

“WE STAND BEHIND HER RECORD

'For 106 years, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has held a long and proud tradition of receiving support from people of all faiths, races, colors and creeds.

'NAACP Spokane Washington Branch President Rachel Dolezal is enduring a legal issue with her family, and we respect her privacy in this matter. One's racial identity is not a qualifying criteria or disqualifying standard for NAACP leadership. The NAACP Alaska-Oregon-Washington State Conference stands behind Ms. Dolezal's advocacy record. 

'In every corner of this country, the NAACP remains committed to securing political, educational, and economic justice for all people, and we encourage Americans of all stripes to become members and serve as leaders in our organization.

'Hate language sent through mail and social media along with credible threats continue to be a serious issue for our units in the Pacific Northwest and across the nation. We take all threats seriously and encourage the FBI and the Department of Justice to fully investigate each occurrence.'”
