Local NAACP leader outed as White by her parents

Andrea Quijada, Executive Director, Media Literacy Project:

"My questions are: 1) What exists within American culture that makes her think this is okay? (Because she did not get there alone); and, 2) Before I see/hear/read white folks point fingers at her, I encourage you to pause and ask yourself, "Where do I fit on the spectrum of this behavior of black co-optation AND why do I do it? How do my actions perpetuate racism when I do this?ā€ (And, Iā€™m not just talking to Iggy Azalea here, see Question 1)."
