Self-Proclaimed Black Woman Rachel Dolezal Once Sued Howard University for Discrimination Because She Was a White Woman
And just when you thought the story of Rachel Dolezal couldn’t get any more bizarre … Thanks Caityn Jenner, you have opened up the I feel therefore I am generation …
The Smoking Gun is reporting that Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who had pretended she was black and the former head of the NAACP Spokane, WA chapter, once sued Howard University for discrimination because she was a white woman. HUH? According to a Court of Appeals opinion, Dolezal’s lawsuit “claimed discrimination based on race, pregnancy, family responsibilities and gender.” Her lawsuit was dismissed in 2004 and later the appeal was upheld by the DC Court of Appeals. So as of 2004, Ms. Dolezal considered herself a white woman. So she is black one minute when it suits her purpose and white the next. Somewhere along the way she went from a discriminated white woman by a black institution to a black woman heading up an NAACP chapter. Who finds this rather interesting and calculating?

Rachel Dolezal … the chameleon woman
The NAACP official who today resigned in the face of evidence that she masqueraded as black once sued Howard University for denying her teaching posts and a scholarship because she was a white woman, The Smoking Gun has learned.
Rachel Dolezal, 37, who headed the NAACP’s Spokane, Washington chapter, sued Howard for discrimination in 2002, the year she graduated from the historically black college with a Master of Fine Arts degree.
Dolezal, then known as Rachel Moore, named the university and Professor Alfred Smith as defendants in a lawsuit filed in Washington, D.C.’s Superior Court. During the pendency of the civil case, Smith was chairman of Howard’s Department of Art.
According to a Court of Appeals opinion, Dolezal’s lawsuit “claimed discrimination based on race, pregnancy, family responsibilities and gender.” She alleged that Smith and other school officials improperly blocked her appointment to a teaching assistant post, rejected her application for a post-graduate instructorship, and denied her scholarship aid while she was a student.
Judge Zoe Bush dismissed Dolezal’s complaint in February 2004, 18 months after the lawsuit was filed and Dolezal was deposed on several occasions. Bush found no evidence that Dolezal was discriminated on the basis of race or other factors. The D.C. Court of Appeals subsequently affirmed Bush’s decision.
So let’s under stand this, as the Jawa Report opines, Rachel Dolezal has railed against white people and championed the black cause, yet she sued Howard University, a predominantly black college for discrimination. Go figure. So she had her civil rights violated by a black college because she was white, yet she now is a black woman speaking of the ills of whitey. So where is her story to further her narrative of discrimination against white people? She seems to have forgot that portion of her life.
EXIT QUESTION: Did anyone in the NAACP ever bother to vet this woman?
