Rachel Dolezal, Spokane NAACP President, Misrepresented Her Race in Years-Long Cultural Appropriation Scam (VIDEO)

This is truly mind-boggling to me.

SPOKANE, Wash. - 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. KXLY4's Jeff Humphrey asked Dolezal about that claim Wednesday afternoon.

"Ma'am, I was wondering if your dad really is an African-American man," Humphrey asked.

"I don't understand the question," Dolezal answered. "I did tell you [that man in the picture] is my dad."

"Are your parents white?" Humphrey asked. At that point, Dolezal removed the microphone, ended the interview and walked away....

This is how far we've come on race relations in America. A white woman born in Montana passes herself off as black American in an obvious cultural appropriation rip off. It's perfectly representative of what's become of "progressivism" today. The truth never matters. Reality is whatever you want it to be. You can paint your skin with faux-mulatto pigmentation and then give community lectures on "Ferguson and Race Relations in America." This scandal proves that racial grievance is a massive industry with tremendous resources to be bilked from a deep well of decent, regular people constantly under assault and made to feel guilty for the color of their skin.

It's so sick and abusive it makes me ashamed for my country.
