Rachel Dolezal was the main hot topic in the news last week, as well as earlier this week. Dolezal made international headlines when it was revealed that she was really a white woman, who for the past several years had literally been "passing" for a black woman. Ironically, she attended Howard University, a historically Black University as a white woman, and not in the "blackface" she continues to perform.

Before resigning as the President of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, Dolezal also taught a Black Studies class part-time. While she seemed to be engrossed in Black culture from a plethora of various ends, this did not give her the right to high jack a culture...a race. Rachel Dolezal could and still can work to improve the plight of the Black community and help fight the causes that are extremely important to keep on front street...she can do it in a credible manner, as a white woman.

There is no justification for Dolezal's actions. She knew exactly what she was doing for years. The deceit ran deep. Her parents confirmed their daughter's actual race.

The following videos are a timeline of the scandal unfolding.
