Rachel Dolezal Resigns as NAACP Prez

Spokane NAACP President Rachel Dolezal has resigned her position, she announced Monday, three days after she was discovered to have lied about being black. In her resignation post on the Spokane NAACP’s Facebook page, Dolezal wrote that “challenging the construct of race is at the core of evolving human consciousness.” Dolezal continued: “Please know I will never stop fighting for human rights and will do everything in my power to help and assist, whether it means stepping up or stepping down, because this is not about me. It’s about justice.” She went on: “It’s about moving the cause of human rights and the black liberation movement along the continuum from resistance to chattel slavery to abolition to defiance of Jim Crow to the building of black Wall Street to the civil rights and black power movement to the ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬ movement and into a future of self-determination and empowerment.”
