SPOKANE, Wash. — Rachel Dolezal resigned as president of the NAACP’s Spokane chapter Monday amid a furor over racial identity that erupted after her parents came forward to say she has been posing as black for years when she is actually white.
The announcement was posted on the civil rights organization’s Facebook page. It said the attention surrounding Dolezal has distracted from the group’s goals.
She be nutty now, from her statement: While challenging the construct of race is at the core of evolving human consciousness, we can NOT afford to lose sight of the five Game Changers (Criminal Justice & Public Safety, Health & Healthcare, Education, Economic Sustainability, and Voting Rights & Political Representation) that affect millions, often with a life or death outcome. The movement is larger than a moment in time or a single person’s story, and I hope that everyone offers their robust support of the Journey for Justice campaign that the NAACP launches today!
Maybe she can found the National Association Of Crazy White Women Grievance Mongers?
