Today, not only did Rachel Dolezal (the NAACP chapter president outed as being white) step down from her position, but a little investigative due diligence revealed she once sued Howard University for discrimination.

Rachel Dolezal sued Howard University for discrimination

Rachel Dolezal, the former president of Spokane, Washington’s NAACP who resigned Monday amid controversy over her racial heritage, unsuccessfully sued Howard University in 2002 for discriminating against her because of her race.

Dolezal’s lawsuit against Howard, a historically black university, alleged that the university denied her a teaching assistant job, further employment and a scholarship because she was white. The lawsuit also claimed that Professor Alfred Smith, chair of the Art Department, specifically kept Dolezal from serving as a teaching assistant one semester and removed some of her artwork from a student exhibition because of racial prejudice.

Howard University is “permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, and insult,” lawyers for Dolezal, who then went by Rachel Moore, alleged.
