This lady did the right thing! It is great that she has taken on the cause of Civil Rights, there is no question about that. The question is: Why the deception? At this point, her continued presence would definitely be an unnecessary distraction for this organization.
Conversation about Dolezal as NAACP President has taken on a life of its’ own and has now gone international.
Her resignation in part reads as follows:
“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”…….
“And yet, the dialogue has unexpectedly shifted internationally to my personal identity in the context of defining race and ethnicity”…..
On Friday, the NAACP had issued a statement of support of Dolezal. Their statement indicated that they stand behind her advocacy record and that a person’s race does not qualify him or her from taking leadership roles within the organization.
