I personally don’t have an issue with a white person being head of a NAACP chapter or or any civil rights organization. In fact one of my favorite freedom fighters of all time is the white abolitionist John Brown, who killed and was killed fighting to free black slaves from his fellow white countrymen. That being said if the allegations by the mother of the president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP are true, about her daughter Rachel Dolezal being white and not black, as she portrays herself, then she should be fired for her dishonesty, and we black people should feel ashamed that a white person can easily infiltrate one of our most prestigious organizations and even make it to chapter president by getting a tan and wearing her hair in curls or braids, which I guess is not as hard as some people may think, when you think about the fact that black people still follow the outdated one drop rule, giving to us during slavery ( which states if a person has one drop of black blood, then that person is black). The fact is Mrs. Dolezal seems to be a good person that cares about the African-American community in her area, she is married to a black man and they have adopted several black kids. That is not the issue. The issue is what if she wasn’t a nice person, what if she was an undercover white supremacist, she could of helped sabotage the over 100 year old civil rights organization. This is a reminder that as an oppressed people fighting for justice and equality, we better be more selective in the people we select to lead us.

OAKLAND OUTREACH!(PHOTO ESSAY)

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

On Saturday may 16, 2015 in the economically disenfranchised and rapidly being gentrified Eastside of Oakland, California, in the early morning where many of the local residents were asleep literally and many more are still asleep (like sleeping beauty) figuratively, local and rising activist Shawn Wolf and his grassroots organization The Bay Area Black Community held their second town hall meeting and community outreach at the Williams Chapel Baptist Church. Some of the other speakers at the event were local activists: Richard Nelson, Marshall Walker and former Black Panther Dedan J. Jaga.
