    It appears she might be unstable. A person who gets confused on what race they are? The hate mail she is getting....suspiciously looks like a hoax. The cops have suspended their investigation presumably because of all the red flags.

    And she holds a leadership position. I have leaders in my company that I respect in part because they are grounded and honest. When someone is living a lie, building on that lie and perhaps eventually beleiving the lie they built---how can you have her as a leader of an organization? Could you follow a leader like that?

    This really isn't a political issue--but liberals seem to want to accept lying as "ok". That is what is amazing to me. A sane person should not accept this.

    So you can't defend this when the roles are reversed, that makes this race specific political correctness, i.e. racism.

    I think it is more in line with morally bankrupt. I used to have a friend who lied all the time to those in authority (of course at the time I figured she wouldn't lie to me ). And she told me once that she would make up a lie, and then brainwash herself into believing it, in order for it to be more believable to others. What I learned about my friend in the long-term--is that she was all about herself and didn't really care about others unless it was to her benefit. She had no problem with lying and thus was a pathological liar to everyone who knew her. Does that make her mentally ill? I don't see it that way because I knew she was making a choice.

    According to a former EWU student, Dolezal wouldn't let her participate in a class discussion because the student "didn't look Hispanic" enough.

    "Predominantly held by Blacks" does not designate her racial designation as a disqualifier for either, of course, and I've seen nothing to suggest her incompetence in either capacity.

    As the reaction from Angry White Guys to a woman with a predominantly White lineage identifying as Black, having themselves a good ol' belly laugh is fine with me.

    I'd much prefer they giggle, guffaw, snicker or titter rather than snivel and/or wail.

    I agree.

    Well race is supposed to be a social construct. Now apparently, blackface is also a social construct.

    If they assumed, then the effect is still the same.

    I'm as fine with that as I am Angry Black Guys defending someone who lied her way to where she is now, then lied her way into staying there by making up false claims of racial attacks. That's even better!

    In other words, she used White Privilege to get Black Benefits.

    I don't think she'll get any jail time for all of those false reports though. Does the "Man" really need to put yet another sista' in jail?

    I don't think it makes a difference whether she's Black or White, however I think it probably does make a difference that she lied about it. However I suspect the Spokane NAACP will probably be under pressure to support her, in spite of her lying. Otherwise, they look like idiots for not knowing. Even though now it seems all of those "threats" she was getting were fraudulent as well.

    At least Benjamin Jealous, former national President of the NAACP, was biracial, although seeing him in TV interviews he always looked white to me. I imagine that he had identity issues since he grew up in one of the whitest and richest areas of the country, Pacific Grove, CA (right by Pebble Beach).

    Depending on how this pans out in the polls but there may be a new strategy in the Hillary for Prez camp:

    ....those low information voters just may fall for it.

    Yep, I guess the point is we are all 'colored' in some way. Does one have to be a certain color to be called 'colored' these days? What happened to the 'rainbow?'

    Have you seen the pictures of her as a black woman? They are very convincing. I'm not surprised that people at Howard and the NAACP believed her.

    Hopefully she sues the NAACP for racial discrimination when they fire her. It's all about Pay Days n bling these days.

    Then she would have to sit on the witness stand and explain how she feels she's black. I'm guessing the NAACP is rightfully embarrassed and looking for a way to quietly dump her, possibly into an Obama cabinet position or something similar.

    The same thought went through my mind:

    Dolezal in 2010: I’d Be ‘Nervous’ to Go to a Tea Party Rally Because of the All-White Crowd.

    Real piece of work.

    Good point, after all (as I already posted) she is 'colored' and the NAACP is supposed to support the 'colored people.' She just ain't the correct color I guess.
