rachel dolezal update: punks out of a chapter meeting, dave chapelle speaks

- she was supposed to have a meeting monday about her years as a fraud
- set out an email postponing it
- the NAACP is still standing up for her oompa loompa lookin self

- comments are from when he spoke at his alma mater, the Duke Ellington School of the Arts
- “There’s a white lady posing as a black lady. There is not one thing that woman accomplished that she couldn’t have done as a white woman. There’s no reason! She just needed the braids! I don’t know what she was doing.”
- "I don’t know what her agenda is, but there’s an emotional context for black people when they see her and white people when they see her. There’s a lot of feelings that are going to come out behind what’s happening with this lady."
- there's more at the source, but he says he won't be doing jokes on her for awhile.

- jk about that cancelled meeting! a board member, Lawrence Burnley, wrote a response! he challenged her authority to delay the meeting:

"I’m puzzled by your decision to arbitrarily cancel/postpone the meeting without input from the executive committee which is scheduled to meet today. The Association’s by-laws provides specific guidelines concerning monthly general/branch meetings. Article V, Section 1 states, “Regular meetings shall be held on a fix day or date each month.” That date, as agreed upon by the executive committee, is the third Monday of each month which is tomorrow. I don’t see any language in the by-laws that empowers you, or any one member, to arbitrarily cancel/postpone tomorrow’s meeting."

Burnley also objected to Dolezal attributing the announcement to “Spokane NAACP Chapter,” writing, “This is misleading as it conveys a decision has been made by ‘the chapter’ or the executive committee of the chapter which not the case.”

According to The Spokesman-Review, chapter members currently plan to hold the meeting as scheduled.
