Unlike most who added their two cents to the topic of Spokane, Washington NAACP chapter president Rachel Dolezal masquerading as a Black woman for years before being outed by her parents as Caucasian last week, Keri’s views on the issue were somewhat objective. Her initial notion that we should all thank Rachel Dolezal because she does more for Black people than we do for ourselves, of course, resulted in the most backlash.
@KeriHilson why would you ever praise a cultural appropriator and oppressor?
After noticing the negative reactions to her tweets, she attempted to clarify her thoughts by emphasizing that she does agree that Rachel Dolezal may have “serious issues,” but she doesn’t think her intentions or efforts to positively impact the African-American community should be discredited.
I'm not sayin she doesn't have serious ISSUES, I'm just sayin don't knock her intentions or discredit her efforts. @NAACP stands by her work
Coming to the defense of a White woman pretending to be Black so she could more effectively lead a local chapter of an organization founded to advocate for fair and equal rights for African-Americans is an uphill battle that we don’t think even Keri could win, point or no point.
