I go offline for the afternoon and return to see that the Rachel Dolezal story has managed to get a lot weirder in my absence. First, she resigned from the presidency of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, which can probably be put down as a predictable turn of events. Less predictable is the news that when she was white in 2002, Dolezal sued Howard University for racial discrimination (Howard is a historically black university) for denying her graduate support, a scholarship because she was white. Then there's news that Dolezal is currently supporting the alleged victim in a child sex assault case against her biological older brother, Joshua Dolezal.
With the news Jeb Bush had formally entered the presidential race I thought the GOP might be angling to top Obama with Bush/Dolezal black/brown fusion ticket. Si se puede!
