Seems like everyone wants to be Black these days, except of course, when facing the actual consequences that come along with it. The President of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP is under fire for lying about her racial background and misrepresenting herself as a biracial African-American.

KLXY.com reports:

The City of Spokane announced Thursday it’s investigating whether the president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP violated the city’s code of ethics in her application to serve on the citizen police ombudsman commission. Rachel Dolezal serves as chair of the independent commission, in addition to her work as an adjunct faculty member at Eastern Washington University and president of the NAACP local chapter. On her application to serve on the commission, she identified herself as African-American.

But public records, including Dolezal’s own birth certificate, list her biological parents as Ruthanne and Lawrence Dolezal of Montana.The Dolezals told KXLY Thursday that Rachel is their biological daughter and that they are both white.

“We are committed to independent citizen oversight and take very seriously the concerns raised regarding the chair of the independent citizen police ombudsman commission,” Mayor David Condon and City Council President Ben Stuckart said it a joint statement Thursday. “We are gathering facts to determine if any city policies related to volunteer boards and commissions have been violated. That information will be reviewed by the City Council, which has oversight of city boards and commissions.”

On the NAACP Spokane Facebook page, a picture was posted earlier this year showing Dolezal and an African-American man. In the post, he’s identified as Dolezal’s father.

Dolezal ended an interview when she was asked if she was African-American. And allegations that she was harassed with racist hate mail have also been questioned as the Postal Service has confirmed that mail in her post office box was placed there by someone with a key to the box.

    Rachel Dolezal has not always pretended to be black. In 2002, when I worked at Howard University, she filed a lawsuit against the University and the incoming chairman of the Art Department, as “Rachel Moore,” her married name at the time, asserting various grounds of discrimination, including her race (Caucasian), color, gender and pregnancy. She alleged that the defendants refused to grant her a scholarship and Teaching Assistant position for her second year, and a faculty position upon graduation based upon her race, pregnancy and gender. She lost the case on all counts in the D.C. Superior Court. The case was Rachel Moore v. Howard University, Civ. No. 02-7193 (D.C. Super. Ct. 2002). She also lost her appeal to the D.C. Court of Appeals, App. No. 04-CV-00234 (D.C. 2004). She seems to be an opportunist and clearly embraced her white race when she filed the lawsuit.

    If every body called themselves black legally, the institutionaly racist policy of affirmative action will and immediately

  3. It’s Ok for Rachel to backcomb her hair it’s OK for Rachel to tan if she wants to. It’s wrong for her to call herself something she’s not legally..We all had nick names tried to act or look like somebody else. When it came to applying for a job we kept it real..Isn’t it illegal to falsify information about yourself on a job application. Yes But this white woman gets off Like they always do. I’ve seen women black ^ white released for much less. As I said it’s OK for her to backcomb her hair & tan. If she can do that i can call my self the child of a billionaire. I’m looking for my rich daddy.

    Brian Williams is now sitting back somewhere saying see at least I didn’t put a military uniform on. Rachel got the Jergen’s bronzer from CVS, wig from Sally’s Beauty Shop, random black dude to pose as dad with fake cancer and sold her adopted brother from her parents into slavery to pose as her son. I wasn’t so bad after all. Now can I please get my job back.

    Her white privilege is showing already. If she was a black woman she would be called a fraud/liar and should be held accountable for what she did because she knew what she was doing. Because she is white she has a mental illness, don’t know what she is doing so she should not be held accountable. It’s amazing how quickly the white disease bipolar conveniently kicked in just in the nick of time. Black women have been hijacked twice so far this year. We have been hijacked by Cox a black man that by putting on a dress, makeup and a wig he is a black woman. We have been hijacked by Rachel who thinks that putting on a kinky wig and getting a bronzer makes her a black woman.
