  • Washington Civil Rights Activist Outed as White by Her Parents

    The parents of one of Spokane, Washington's most prominent civil rights activists have outed their own daughter as a white woman, prompting a flood of social media jibes about the outspoken activist's heritage and race, which she alleged in official documents was African-American.

    Rachel Dolezal, 37, is not only the head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), she has also spoken publicly about the Black Lives Matter movement in Baltimore, Ferguson, and elsewhere across the US, and currently chairs Spokane's Office of Police Ombudsman Commission (OPOC).



    But Dolezal's activism and motivations, as well as an incident where she says she received graphic hate mail, have been thrown into question since her estranged parents told local Spokane TV channel KREM 2 News that their daughter's heritage was in fact German, Swedish, and Czech, with a touch of Native American ancestry.

    "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," Mrs. Dolezal told the station. "That's simply not true."

      Yes, you're absolutely right. Having people in local government being outed lying about themselves to obtain positions of political power is entirely irrelevant.

                There were not any qualified Black people in Spokane? Did they look? I have a niece from Mamou, LA that claimed she was Hispanic on her job applications. Never mind her family name had been in Louisiana for 300 years and she spoke with a thick Cajun accent.

                This lady must surely have a vivid fantasy life.

                  Yeah, a opportunist. I think I read that she had a discrimination lawsuit for not getting a job as a white person. Geez... what a way to work the system.

                    Should post a link but I'm to lazy. She's getting slammed from many sides. EWU will dump her when the contract ends. She's been eschewed by the Government paychecks. Maybe she'll write a book.

                            Obviously a case of a black person trapped in a white person's body.....
                            Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.
