Rachel Dolezal, the embattled president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, postponed Monday's membership meeting where she planned to respond to an official statement by executive leaders.
In an emailed statement to the media on Sunday, Dolezal stated; "Due to the need to continue discussion with regional and national NAACP leaders, tomorrow's meeting is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time."
Dolezal, who is white, was outed by her parents who accused the 37-year-old African studies professor of impersonating a black woman for nearly a decade.
"Rachel is clearly white as we are," Lawrence Dolezal told ABC's "Nightline" via Skype.
"We've always supported her activism for justice and equality," Ruthanne Dolezal added. "But this deceptive side and the way she's tried to represent herself as someone she is not. that is what is concerning to us."
In an earlier email to the media, Dolezal said the NAACP regional and national leaders agreed to wait until Monday to make an official statement regarding the controversy. Dolezal's response to the statement was also expected during that meeting.
In the original email, Dolezal wrote; "I support their decision to wait until Monday to make a statement. The Executive team asked that I also release my response statement at the same time, which will be during the 7-9 pm monthly membership meeting."
In response to the overwhelming public backlash, sources say NAACP national execs had planned to ask Dolezal to step down while they appoint an interim president. But Dolezal is reportedly refusing to step down.
The City of Spokane is investigating Dolezal for possible ethics violations for falsifying her race on a job application.
Critics blast Dolezal for impersonating a black woman to avail herself of opportunities normally reserved for African Americans.
She allegedly filed eight bogus police reports alleging hate crimes which were unfounded.
