Rachel Dolezal may no longer be head of the Spokane, Washington NAACP, but she does have a supporter in singer Keri Hilson.

According to Hilson took to Twitter to encourage her followers to take a different look at Dolezal, who came under fire after her mother revealed that her family had no African ancestry. Despite this, media sources note that Dolezal once identified herself as black, white and American Indian.

In Hilson’s opinion, folks should be thanking the now former NAACP Spokane, Washington chapter president instead of tearing her down.

“Let’s just all thank #RachelDolezal. Identity, pathological, & parental issues aside, she’s doing more than most of us do for ourselves,” Hilson tweeted. “It is really weird tho. She took it pretty far with slave whips & what not. Levels. Deep.”

“I’m not sayin she doesn’t have serious ISSUES,” she continued, “I’m just saying don’t knock her intentions or discredit her efforts. @NAACP stands by her work.”

As for what her critics thought of her, Dolezal had a few words for them, saying:

“I don’t give two s—s what you guys think. You are so far done, and out, of my life.”
