Remember Rachel Dolezal? She’s a former NAACP official who stepped down from the organization when it was discovered that she’s actually white.
Now she’s been invited to an event to honor civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King.
The News and Observer reports:
Cary’s MLK celebration to include former NAACP leader Dolezal
Organizers want the town’s annual MLK Dreamfest Celebration in January to highlight Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s values through discussions on race relations and racial identity. They hope nationally known speakers like former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal of Washington state will facilitate the dialogue.
The theme of the annual celebration, which will run Jan. 14 to 16, is “Healing Race Relations through Conversation and Participation.” Attendees will be able to delve into this theme through a variety of events, including an International Diversity Summit at the Cary Arts Center, featuring panel discussions with community and religious leaders.
Dolezal, who was born to white parents, drew national attention last year after resigning as president of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, Wash., following allegations that she lied about her racial identity.
“We chose a person like Rachel Dolezal that has been depicted as a major villain through media because of her preference of racial identity,” said Al Cohen, CEO of Jireh Management Group. “And yet, she didn’t steal from anybody. She didn’t murder anybody. She didn’t rob anybody. She only had an affinity for a group of people, and she served her community well.”
In the bizarre world the left has created, everyone can be anything they want by simply saying so.
Men can say they identify as women, white people can say they identify as black, etc.
What happens when a white student applies for a college scholarship designated for black students?
Will there be any problem or will it be OK as long as they identify as black?
