Rachel Dolezal’s game of ducking questions about her race continues while the support of her constituents is crumbling.
The white NAACP leader canceled a meeting set for Monday where she was to speak about the controversy surrounding her racial identity, according to KREM-TV.
Dolezal was outed by her parents as white last week after she successfully spent years masquerading as black so successfully she became the president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP.
“Due to the need to continue discussion with regional and national NAACP leaders, tomorrow’s meeting is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date,” Dolezal wrote in a statement released to the media and NAACP members Sunday.
If she was expecting the full support of her members, she must have been disappointed by the email response of Executive Committee Chairman Lawrence Burnley.
“I’m puzzled by your decision to arbitrarily cancel/postpone the meeting without input from the executive committee which is scheduled to meet today,” Burnley wrote, noting that the dates of meetings are set by the association’s bylaws, not at the decision of any one official in the organization.
“I don’t see any language in the by-laws that empowers you, or any one member, to arbitrarily cancel/postpone tomorrow’s meeting,” he wrote.
Some Spokane NAACP members who started a petition asking Dolezal to take a leave of absence were also planning to protest the meeting, KREM reported.
“This is not about race. This is about integrity,” Kitara Johnson who organized of the petition drive told KREM.
Right now it’s about how long Dolezal can hide from the consequences of her deceit.
