Rachel Dolezal, the fake-black-actually-white NAACP leader, said in 2010 that she would be “nervous” about going to a Tea Party rally — partially because there would be so many white people there.
“Dolezal, who is multiracial, said she could not imagine showing her face at a Tea Party event,” stated a 2010 article in the New York Times. “To her, what stands out are the all-white crowds, the crude depictions of Mr. Obama as an African witch doctor and the signs labeling him a terrorist.”Dolezal is president of the Spokane, Wash., chapter of the NAACP and had been successfully portraying herself as a black person for years — until her parents outed her on Thursday.
“It is very disturbing that she has become so dishonest,” Dolezal’s mother, Ruthanne Dolezal, told the Idaho newspaper Coeur d’Alene Press.
Dolezal’s 2010 comments to the Times were pointed out in a post on Weasel Zippers on Friday.
