Well THIS didn’t take long. Of course if it’s an issue of black and white – even when the “victim” is a fake black person, good ol’ Al Sharpton takes up the case!
As reported by Mediate:
Al Sharpton has some questions for Lawrence and Ruthanne Dolezal about why they waited until Friday to appear on TV to discuss their controversial daughter, Rachel Dolazel. Dolazel’s parents outed the NAACP local president as a white woman pretending to be black, and Sharpton was approached by TMZ one day later to give his thoughts.
When asked if what the Dolazel parents did was wrong, Sharpton first brought up the NAACP description of the story as a family dispute, but then said that Rachel’s parents were trying to create a distraction from her activism in social justice.
“On one level, you’ve got to say to her, ‘you’re misleading us’, but another level, mom and dad, come on,” Sharpton said. “Are we gonna have this dysfunctional family stuff play out and distract us from key civil rights causes?Sharpton then brought up the fact that Dolazel’s parents knew about their daughter’s involvement in the NAACP, saying they betrayed their daughter by waiting until she became a center of attention. “You’ve got to ask the question, ‘what are Mom and Dad’s motives here…where’ve you been?” What are the motives, Al? Like maybe they felt it was time to expose her LIES? Al, you might have overlooked the fact she was making up false accusations of hate crimes. But of course that wouldn’t matter to you, after all you were perfectly happy to support Tawana Brawley’s false accusations.
I get the feeling Al really wants to accuse Dolezal’s parents of racism, because they won’t accept their daughter’s “blackness.”
This whole thing is getting more absurd with every moment.
