Last month, before the world knew her dark (or should I say light?) secret, Rachel Dolezal spoke at some Freddie Gray demonstrations, marching with protesters in one rally and leading them in a chant in another. The former president of the Spokane NAACP chapter was in town for the NAACP 2015 Annual Convention. On May 20, the Spokane NAACP chapter posted the following on Facebook :
President Dolezal spoke at the Freddie Gray rally at the Fraternal Order of Police facility today. Peaceful protesters continue to demand justice as they await the trial of officers implicated in Gray’s death. Dolezal offered words of support to Freddie Gray’s family and solidarity from the Northwest.
On May 21, according to the Spokane NAACP chapter, she marched with protesters at a “Black Women Matter” rally in Baltimore.
Video footage has emerged of Dolezal leading the chant “No justice, no peace, no racist police” at the Fraternal Order of Police rally.
Via the Washington Examiner:
Dolezal appears to be wearing heavy brown makeup as she retells stories of protests in Washington state and that police brutality “is something that is affecting us nationwide.” She is speaking to a crowd outside the Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) union hall in a video uncovered by the Baltimore Spectator.
“Not only have we had these incidents with police, I have received these racist threats – death threats,” Dolezal told local activist Kinji Scott, according to the Baltimore Brew. “I just came to support Baltimore. We are dealing with a national problem.”
If you say so, Rachel.
Dolezal also met with Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby last month. On May 22, the Spokane NAACP chapter posted several photos to Twitter of Dolezal’s meeting with Mosby and posted a photo of the duo on its website.
