    ‘Are you an African American?’ Why an NAACP official isn’t saying.

    A controversy is raging over whether a prominent Washington state civil rights activist and Howard University graduate who claimed she was African American is actually white.

    Rachel Dolezal, 37, is the president of the Spokane NAACP and has claimed to be the victim of a number of hate crimes. As questions were raised about the veracity of some of her reports this week, a white couple from Montana came forward to claim that Dolezal is their daughter.

    I do not believe in Karma, but if I did, this would be it. :laugh:

    No. She is whatever she FEELS she is, people! This is the new reality, everyone. For instance, I am a Jedi....I've always felt that I have a high midichlorian count. And who are YOU to judge me??!!

    Cyberspace is booming with this story about either mental illness or lying.

    My point: we are lied to every day by politicians. So WHAT if some lady in Spokane lied her entire life? She self-identifies as black. Yet another story of white privilege.

    Anyway, I feel like a Klingon. I always have. I AM a Klingon. And for those who say I'm not, well, you're a bunch of klingophobes.
