New details in the bizarre case of Washington NAACP leader outed by her parents as a white woman, Rachel Dolezal, suggest a family rift had deepened in recent years over sexual assault charges.
Those charges, filed against Dolezal’s white biological brother, Joshua Dolezal, in Colorado in 2013, involve a person who was a minor at the time of the alleged incident–possibly even a member of his own family.
Rachel Dolezal, who’s accused her parents of abuse for years, has now sided with her brother’s accuser, reports the New York Daily News, thus widening the rift between parents and daughter.
Rachel Dolezal has made ongoing assertions that her parents have outed her as white in order to discredit her claims of abuse in the family.
Dolezal noted to the Spokesman-Review that her parents have chosen to reveal her ethnicity ‘as the Colorado lawsuit filed by her sister against their brother nears a key juncture.’
Joshua Dolezal, a 39-year-old writer based in Iowa, faces four felony sexual assault charges, reports NYDN. The case has a trial date set for this summer.
Rachel’s parents Larry and Ruthanne Dolezal briefly addressed the allegations in a sit down with KHQ on Saturday, during which a reporter said:
‘Our reporter in Spokane spoke with Rachel earlier and he told me she mentioned someone in the family potentially being assaulted?’
‘It is not something we can comment on,’ replied Mrs. Dolezal.
The reporter pushed forward: ‘Do you know what she’s alleging?’
‘We will not comment on that,’ Mrs. Dolezal said, to which her husband added, ‘It’s better if we don’t, it’s a separate matter.’
Like his sister, Joshua Dolezal teaches at the university level.
A website for Central College in Pella, Iowa lists him as an associate professor of English who earned a Ph.D. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
