Fake black NAACP prez Rachel Dolezal cancels board meeting, board member says not so fast

dolezal5The Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP was scheduled to meet Monday evening and Rachel Dolezal, the “fake black” chapter president, was set to address the controversy over her ethnicity.

But the meeting was canceled, KREM-2’s Taylor Viydo said on Twitter, posting the email he received:

Is America headed for a recession?

One person suggested:

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.

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.

Updates to come as they’re available.
