Did local NAACP chair lie about being black?

Recommended Posts

LOL, Cheap!

The more I read about this woman, the more I'm convinced that she has some serious issues. I wonder if her parents thought her to be unstable and thought she'd get some help if they 'outed' her, although you can't force an adult to do anything. Being intelligent, even being accomplished doesn't preclude a person from being mentally ill. I just seems like such an elaborate ruse.

Thing is, she could have joined the NAACP and contributed and worked as an advocate of Black causes as a White woman. Would she have ascended as far in the NAACP or in her career as a White woman? it's entirely possible but no one can know for sure. It's all just so... puzzling.

The really sad thing was that interview with a local affiliate, where she squirms around and cries and insists she identifies as black, that this random man is who she identifies as her father, etc.

I feel fairly confident that her 'hate crimes' were engineered by her, as well as her tales of 'hunting with bow and arrow' as a child while living in a teepee (her parents say they only did that prior to her birth) and being whipped as a kid - IIRC, her claim was that she was whipped with something akin to a slaver's weapon of choice. I'm sure, in her mind, that is her pathetic rationale with identifying as black. But I also don't believe any of it is true.

People who are attacking her on the grounds that she "appropriated" a black organization might want to take a look at the NAACP and learn who helped to found it and who helps to support it. Although I think she seems to be as small-minded as some of the people attacking her, she's probably earnest about wanting to help.

The way the NAACP treated Shirley Sherrod and the fact that they gave Donald Sterling two lifetime awards speaks volumes about them.

Maybe she didn't want to just be a contributor. Maybe she wanted to be a part of the discussion. She could volunteer, participate in demonstrations, and donate money but the chances her opinion would be welcomed in any discussion about race, racism, are pretty slim. It would take less than two seconds for someone to remind her that she is not black and does not know how it is or how it feels.

What irks me about America's farcical race discussion most are the "black experts" who are all over the media purporting to speak for the approximately 40 million black people in the United States. I do get a kick out of intellectuals saying things like "every black person I know has been treated suspiciously by a store clerk." Is that like 2 or 3 million black people? First they say that race is a social construct and people are people and seconds later claim that all the black people are sharing some black experience and making being black sound like some sort of physical and mental handicap. Race (real or not) is not the issue, The issue is the ignorant people who act as if it is and try to use it as means of categorizing behavior, emotions, and beauty.

So if kinky hair and some makeup can make a woman black then there are a lot of black women out there who must not know the truth.tongue.png

I was watching CNN today and it was mentioned that there was an instance where Rachel was trying to prevent a white civil rights activist, from attending a “Black Lives Matter” event because she felt that white people shouldn’t be there. huh.png

I definitely think it's an unfortunate situation. She could still have made a difference and been embraced by the NAACP by not lying about her race and her much of her background. I also think she may have made up the hate crimes, (and maybe the abuse as well) and if so that is very disturbing. The NAACP actually came out defending her, by saying that she did do good work for the organization, and I’ve seen some people comment that they are more disturbed by her constant lying than anything else. I don’t know what her situation is, if she just enjoys lying/making up stuff or if she maybe has mental issues. Marc Lamont Hill said he interviewed her parents and they said that she’s always been delusional. So maybe she does have mental issues. He also said the reason they gave for outing her was that the media was already asking a ton of questions about her, and they didn't see the point in remaining silent.

I've seen people do [!@#$%^&*] like this before - inventing the abuse, the troubled backstory, the fantasies. It's not limited to people with sociocultural complexes. It all fits that pattern to me, here. I get the impression what's more important to her is not the work, but her identity within the legend she has writ for herself atop all those other people's good work.

Apparently, the roof is just about to cave in on her NAACP relationship:

http://www.krem.com/story/news/local/spokane-county/2015/06/13/spokane-naacp-members-sign-petition-against-dolezal/71197566/

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Spokane NAACP members organized a petition asking Rachel Dolezal to take a leave of absence.

"This is not about race. This is about integrity," said Kitara Johnson, a member of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP.

Johnson was also the organizer of the online petition. She said it got 60 signatures in one day as of Saturday evening.

Dolezal's parents said Thursday that she was born Caucasian, and has been deceiving people into thinking she was African American since 2004. Dolezal is the acting president of Spokane's NAACP chapter.

Johnson said many who signed the petition have planned to protest outside the local NAACP session on Monday.

Rachel's parents said their daughter has always identified with the African American culture and had black siblings who were adopted. They said she went to school in Mississippi and was part of a primarily African American community.

The Dolezals said Rachel married and later divorced a black man. They said after the divorce in 2004 Rachel began identifying differently. She started claiming to be partially African American and the daughter of bi-racial parents. They said they have noticed her change in physical appearance but do not know how she did so.

"Rachel has wanted to be somebody she's not. She's chosen not to just be herself but to represent herself as an African American woman or a biracial person. And that's simply not true," said Ruthanne Dolezal.

Dolezal has unilaterally cancelled the local NAACP chapter meeting scheduled for tomorrow, where she was expected to face her colleagues and had promised to issue a statement. They're not happy.
