I can’t believe he jumped into the topic but he did and he said so much that it turned into hypocrisy on his part.
Al Sharpton called out Rachel Dolazel parents Lawrence and Ruthanne Dolezal on why they waited until Friday to appear on national TV this past Friday, like a day has anything to do with their daughter’s lie.
Dolazel’s parents outed their daughter, the current NAACP local president as a white woman pretending to be black, and Sharpton was approached by TMZ one day later to give his thoughts.
“It’s not about whether you are white or black, it’s about are you going to be honest,” said Sharpton during the man on the street interview. He went on to say the following:
“On one level, you’ve got to say to her, ‘you’re misleading us’, but another level, mom and dad, come on,” Sharpton said. “Are we gonna have this dysfunctional family stuff play out and distract us from key civil rights causes?
Sharpton then brought up the fact that Dolazel’s parents knew about their daughter’s involvement in the NAACP, saying they betrayed their daughter by waiting until she became a center of attention.
“You’ve got to ask the question, ‘what are Mom and Dad’s motives here… where’ve you been?”
