‘Black’ Rachel Dolezal: Whites shouldn’t discuss racism

As if the case of Rachel Dolezal couldn’t get any sillier, anti-racism activist Tim Wise says that the “black” former NAACP chapter president once “tried to stop him from speaking” at Eastern Washington University because … “white folks can’t speak with any legitimacy to issues of racism.”

Dolezal was a part-time professor at the college.

The Daily Caller reports:

She was trying to keep me from coming to speak at Eastern Washington University, where she was a part-time professor, because in her estimation white folks can’t speak with any legitimacy to issues of racism,” Wise said in an interview with SiriusXM Radio host Mark Thompson. “Let the irony marinate there for a minute.”

“Her reason — this is what I was told by colleagues of her, people of color who brought me to the campus — that she had said, “No, no, no. He has no business being here talking about issues that are specific to black people because he is white,” Wise said.

Wise noted that the self-proclaimed black woman didn’t limit her racial exclusivity: She once told Green Party veep nominee Rosa Clemente that “Hispanics should not participate in Black Lives Matter protests.”
