Rachel Dolezal stepping down as NAACP leader

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – A member of the NAACP in Spokane, Washington, is welcoming the resignation of the chapter’s president, Rachel Dolezal.

The resignation today came days after her parents claimed that she is actually white, but has been posing for years as black.

Kitara Johnson, who’s been calling on Dolezal to step down, says it’s "the best thing that can happen right now."

Dolezal has been a longtime figure in Spokane’s human-rights community and teaches African studies to college students.

The city of Spokane is investigating whether she lied about her ethnicity when she applied to be on the police board.
