    Rachel Dolezal resigns as NAACP leader amid racial identity controversy

    From the Seattle CBS affiliate:

    Dolezal’s statement reads, “While challenging the construct of race is at the core of evolving human consciousness, we can NOT afford to lose sight of the five Game Changers (Criminal Justice & Public Safety, Health & Healthcare, Education, Economic Sustainability, and Voting Rights & Political Representation) that affect millions, often with a life or death outcome. The movement is larger than a moment in time or a single person’s story, and I hope that everyone offers their robust support of the Journey for Justice campaign that the NAACP launches today!

    “It is with complete allegiance to the cause of racial and social justice and the NAACP that I step aside from the Presidency and pass the baton to my Vice President, Naima Quarles-Burnley. It is my hope that by securing a beautiful office for the organization in the heart of downtown, bringing the local branch into financial compliance, catalyzing committees to do strategic work in the five Game Changer issues, launching community forums, putting the membership on a fast climb, and helping many individuals find the legal, financial and practical support needed to fight race-based discrimination, I have positioned the Spokane NAACP to buttress this transition.” Rachel Dolezal Resigns As NAACP Leader Amid Controversy « CBS Seattle

    Brazenly self-aggrandizing even now.

    "challenging the construct of race is at the core of evolving human consciousness"

    Its established that your gender is a choice, so why not your race! Can't wait for someone to argue they are a platypus. I'm ok with that so long as they were a fedora.

    Delusional, just like a drug addict.

    She just can't let it go.

    Thinking you are something that you are not or claiming that you are something that you are not does not require everyone else to play along, right Mr. Jenner?

    Sure. Dance on the poor black woman's grave - show off your transracialphobia to the whole world. Bigot.

I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    Re: Rachel Dolezal resigns as NAACP leader amid racial identity controversy

    So, let's see if I have this one straight. She has resigned from her position heading an organization dedicated to combating racism because of her race, which she intimates is a choice and not a result of her parents being white.

    Just when I thought race relations couldn't get any more bizarre.
