After avoiding the media over the weekend, and dodging questions about her status as NAACP chairwoman this morning, Rachel Dolezal, the head of Spokane’s NAACP who has, apparently, been masquerading as African-American for much of her life, has resigned.
Rachel Dolezal, the civil rights activist in Washington state who has come under fire for her disputed racial identity, said Monday she was stepping down as president of the NAACP’s Spokane chapter.
This isn’t surprising. The NAACP in Spokane shut down communications late last week after Rachel’s parents decided to come forward with accusations that she is actually a blonde-haired, blue-eyed woman from Montana, who grew up in relative comfort with her nuclear family, which is now embroiled in a legal dispute, and not a biracial woman with kids who was raised in a teepee by Native Americans in Montana and hunted food with a bow and arrow. Rachel, it seems, has been portraying herself as a light-skinned black woman by spraytanning herself Burnt Sienna and employing a wig and weave game that is definitely on point.
There will obviously be questions now as to how Rachel got away with it for so long, and why Rachel is not allowed to choose her own race from the “fluid” scope available to the human race, while Elizabeth Warren, who is similarly Nordic looking, got away with being a “minority hire” in the Ivy League for almost a decade.
