Spokane NAACP president ‘outed’ as white; liberals struggle for response

Progressives are scratching their collective heads at the situation surrounding Rachel Dolezal, president of the Spokane, Washington NAACP.

It seems Ms. Dolezal is … white.

That’s right — the president of a chapter of the NAACP is a Caucasian. But she claims to be black.

KHQ-6 reports:

There are questions about Spokane’s NAACP Chapter President, Rachel Dolezal. The city confirmed with KHQ she claimed to be of African-American descent on a city application to be on the Ombudsman commission. But we spoke with her parents today who say Rachel is white and has been misrepresenting her ethnicity for years.

Dolezal teaches African American Culture at Eastern Washington University as an adjunct instructor. Her blog also says she is an art instructor at North Idaho College, is an advisor for the NIC Black Student Association.

Dolezal made headlines back in February when she claimed someone had mailed racist and threatening letters to the NAACP post office box. KHQ managed to obtain a 38-page Spokane Police report about the investigation into that mail. Officers concluded that the mail had not been properly processed through the post office, and was likely put directly into the post office box, without being mailed at all. They said only a few people have access to the box: the USPS employees who work there, and the boxholder. Police said they do not believe the USPS employees put the mail there. The investigation continues.

Spokane Mayor David Condon and City Council President Ben Stuckart put out a statement which reads in part “We are gathering facts to determine if any city policies related to volunteer boards and commissions have been violated.”

Hold on a sec — if men and women can choose which gender they wish to be (feel more comfortable as), then why can’t someone similarly decide which race she wishes to be?

Women-only colleges are opening their doors to trans women; is it only a matter of time before “trans-racial” students are accepted?

Until that long-awaited pamphlet on navigating the politically correct hierarchy arrives, don’t count on it.
