#AskRachel: Leave that woman alone...

Rachel Dolezal back in the day and today

Part of me wants to say leave this woman alone. It seems social media wants to go in on her because of her deception and I do believe it's a deception.

At the same time I'm ok with people living their lives as they see fit. Unfortunately in Rachel Dolezal's case she may well have took it too far finding herself as head of a local chapter of the NAACP. Because of that organization's history and prominence it's a very high profile position she's had.

To be sure looking at a recent picture of her - such as the one above - she has some rather kinky hair and certainly pass for biracial. I also understand she was married to a Black man at one point. She even registered at Howard University at one point.

Either way it seems for some reason she chose to distance herself from her family at some point and it's coming out in the press. To me that's really sad that some of her personal issues are coming out. It's being broadcast around the world.

Instead of adding to any of the negative attention she's receiving from the world I sincerely hope she reconciles with her family. They may have added to some of the damage, but surely they wouldn't reject her if she finally came back home!
