Local NAACP leader outed as WHITE by her parents

A local NAACP leader’s parents on Thursday dropped a massive bomb: their daughter, for years a highly visible civil rights activist in Eastern Washington, is white.

The parents of a white NAACP leader who claimed to be African American have claimed that she cut them out because she didn’t want them ruining her image.

Larry and Ruthanne Dolezal spoke from their home in Troy, Montana on Friday after they revealed that their daughter, Spokane’s NAACP Chapter President Rachel Dolezal, has been misleading people about her ethnicity for years.

Dolezal, who has been a civil rights activist across Idaho and Washington and works part-time as an Africana Studies professor at Eastern Washington University, is now facing a city ethics probe for falsely claiming on an application that she was black.

Her parents, who are estranged from their daughter, say they first found out she was claiming to be African American as they read a newspaper article about her ‘some years ago’.
