G98.7FM Entertainment News
Parents of a ‘Black’ Washington State NAACP leader say she is really white! According to Ruthanne Dolezal, her daughter Rachel Dolezal, who is the President of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP had been “disguising” herself since 2006 or 2007.
In a recent interview Dolezal said; “It’s more important for me to clarify that with the black community and with my executive board than it really is explain it to a community that I quite frankly don’t think really understands the definitions of race and ethnicity.”
When asked if she identified as an African American Dolezal answered, “I do not like the term African American, I prefer black, and I would say that if I was asked I would definitely say that yes, I do consider myself to be black.”
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think she did something wrong? Do you think it’s ok to want to be identified with another race? Share your opinions in the comment section below.
