So, what is there to discuss? She was born white, appears to have spent nearly a decade creating a false persona and used that persona to get herself into the leadership of the NAACP.
Others weighed in:
@TheRoot The only statement I want to hear from her is that she knows she's not black & she's going somewhere to sit down & shut up.

But, the Spokesman-Review reported Sunday, it seems Dolezal doesn’t have the authority to cancel meetings, according to one board member:
About an hour later, board member Lawrence Burnley emailed NAACP members to say that he doesn’t believe Dolezal has the authority to postpone the meeting.
“I don’t see any language in the by-laws that empowers you, or any one member, to arbitrarily cancel/postpone tomorrow’s meeting,” wrote Burnley, chairman of the chapter’s executive committee.
“Burnley notes that the executive committee is scheduled to meet today,” the Spokesman-Review said.
Maybe it’s time to invest in popcorn.
