What Color Is The NAACP Woman?

After our discussion of the racial questions surrounding Rachel Dolezal, president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, one of my listeners posted this collage on Facebook, with photos of Dolezal as a young Caucasian with straight blond hair and more recently with darker skin and frizzy hair -- a throwback to the "what color is the dress" meme that exploded on the internet a few months ago.

The best part of this story is when Dolezal was asked by a reporter, "Are you African-American?" and she responded, "I don't understand the question." You can see that video and more photos of her then and now here.
