Rachel Dolezal Response: What Al Sharpton, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Black Leaders Said About Former NAACP President's Identity Claims

Here is my take on the matter. This tells me that many of us don't know that the NAACP was started by whites to help the blacks, and no one seemed to have a problem with that. Also, if her parents was this mad, why didn't they move on it right off the bat?
