    The woman who has been disguising herself as black wrote a lengthy resignation letter on Facebook.On Monday, Spokane, Wash., NAACP Chapter President Rachel Dolezal issued her resignation via a Facebook post on the chapter’s page. This came on the heels of Dolezal’s cancellation of a press conference that was supposed to be held earlier on Monday for her to address the recent allegations from her parents that she’s a white woman who’s been posing as a black woman for several years. In Dolezal’s resignation letter, which was devoid of any type of apology for her deceitful ways, she made sure...

    Langston Hughes looked kindly on racial “passing.” In his essay, Fooling Our White Folks, he describes it as a con at the expense of whites who deserve whatever they get: “Because our American whites are stupid in so many ways, racially speaking, I have great tolerance for persons of color who deliberately set out to fool our white folks.”Our white folks are very easily fooled. Being so simple about race, why shouldn’t they be? . . . since they are prejudiced, there’s no harm in fooling the devil, is there? . . . Most colored folks think that as long...

    This was in 2002, before the “transition.” According to a Court of Appeals opinion, Dolezal’s lawsuit “claimed discrimination based on race, pregnancy, family responsibilities and gender.” She alleged that Smith and other school officials improperly blocked her appointment to a teaching assistant post, rejected her application for a post-graduate instructorship, and denied her scholarship aid while she was a student.The court opinion also noted that Dolezal claimed that the university’s decision to remove some of her artworks from a February 2001 student exhibition was “motivated by a discriminatory purpose to favor African-American students over” her.As detailed in the court...

    On Saturday, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry shared her thoughts about the Rachel Dolezal story with one of her guests. Perry said: “But is it possible that she might actually be black? The best way that I know how to describe this and I want to be very careful here. Because I don’t want to say it’s equivalent to the transgender experience. But there is a useful language in trans and cis, which is to just to say some of us are born cis-gendered, some of us are born trans-gendered. But I wonder can it be that one would be cis-black...

    Rachel Dolezal, the white NAACP chapter president in Spokane, Washington, is firing back against critics who have questioned her racial identity. Dolezal gave an interview Friday to Sky News in which she slammed her detractors. “What would you say to those who are questioning your ethnicity?” a reporter asked. “What I’d say to them is, you know, ‘I don’t give two s***s what you guys think, you know? You are so far done and out of my life,” she said.

    White NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal has already had her share of fascinating moments during her brief national whirlwind of irony. After being outed as “white,” she became the subject of a top-trending Twitter hashtag #AskRachel, as well as countless memes. It’s not completely clear if this should be added to the colossal list of already famous memes, or if it is one of those things that should have tipped us off that the Spokane, Washington NAACP chapter head was not all she was ‘blacked up to be.’ National Review Online’s Jonah Goldberg tweeted this out:

    How does she hair-do it? She does it herself! Embattled Spokane, Wash. NAACP President Rachel Dolezal is an “ethnic hair stylist” who’s been doing her own — and, for a price, other people’s hair — for years, The Post has learned. That’s how Dolezal has been able to toggle effortlessly from Afro, to dreds, and back to Afro again, say those who know her in Spokane.

    (snip) It wasn't until around 2007, her parents said, that Dolezal began identifying herself more with the African-American community, according to her mother. Her parents say Rachel Dolezal "has chosen to distance herself from the family." According to court documents obtained by CNN, Rachel Dolezal's adopted brother, Izaiah -- who is black -- sought emancipation from Ruthanne and Lawrence Dolezal in 2010. The adopted brother, now 21, said the Dolezals used "physical forms of punishment" and had sent his brother and sister away to group homes because they didn't cooperate with the couple's religion and rules.

    Former students from Eastern Washington and Howard Universities told BuzzFeed News about their classroom encounters with Rachel Dolezal, who taught courses in Africana studies and studio art. Rachel Dolezal once did not let a student participate in a class activity about race and culture because she did not appear Hispanic enough, the student told BuzzFeed News on Friday. Dolezal, president of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP, gained notoriety Thursday when her parents disclosed that she has been passing herself off as black for years. The revelation has prompted questions about the other aspects of Dolezal’s life, including claims...

    The Rachel Dolezal story has got to be the top tale of 2015 so far. It so perfectly exemplifies where North America is at right now culturally. You’ve probably never heard of Dolezal before. But her story reads like a headline from the fake news site The Onion. Except it’s not fake. Here’s the Buzzfeed headline: “A Civil Rights Leader Has Disguised Herself As Black For Years, Her Parents Say.” Dolezal is the president of the Spokane, Wash., chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. She also teaches African-American culture at Eastern Washington University. Then in...

    Rachel Dolezal, the president of Spokane, Washington's NAACP chapter, has postponed Monday's monthly NAACP membership meeting, where she had planned to make a statement regarding the "questions and assumptions swirling in national and global news about my family, my race, my credibility, and the NAACP." Dolezal said in an emailed statement today: "Due to the need to continue discussion with regional and national NAACP leaders, tomorrow's meeting is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time." "There are many layers to this situation," Dolezal said in her original statement, sent...

    Rev. Al Sharpton is questioning why Rachel Dolezal’s parents chose to out her for faking her racial identity now of all times. The Black community was really shocked to find out that the president of the NAACP’s Spokane chapter was pretending to be a Black woman. This information was new to us, but this was really nothing new for her family. Despite what Rachel’s done during her tenure at the NAACP, and the lengths she’s gone to to make everyone believe that she’s a Black woman, Al told TMZ that her parents are really the only ones to blame for...
  • Rachel Dolezal: Her Parents “Outed” Her Because Of Her Brother’s Child Molestation Charge

    And so the plot thickens. If anyone wondered why Rachel Dolezal’s family chose to out her as white last week, Dolezal suggests it is because of a sex assault charge against Dolezal’s older brother, and a plan by her parents to damage her credibility, according to the New York Daily News. Apparently, Rachel had been assisting a victim who had accused her biological (i.e. white) older brother of child molestation in Colorado, and previously suggested the timing of her Montana-based parents’ media interviews about her performative racial identity was connected to the case. The News reports that Joshua Dolezal, 39,...

    When news broke last night that the president of Spokane's NAACP chapter Rachel Dolezal is actually a white woman who's been pretending for years to be black, Twitter erupted into a cacophony of outrage, disbelief, and — best of all — jokes. While we prepare for the impending storm of hot takes — and, as activist Deray McKesson put it, some actually interesting essays exploring "performative blackness, appropriation as reality, and the white gaze" — let's take a moment to enjoy the humor in this before it's considered too mean. For instance, Dolezal's Twitter handle is literally @HarlmRenaissanc. You can't...
