Should Rachel Dolezal Be Praised Or Criticized

I don't understand why Rachel Dolezal is being criticized for her actions as lead of the NAACP. According, to the NAACP race doesn't matter as who becomes the president as long as they are the best person for the job. If she done her duties, and led the NAACP without harming it, then I don't see anything wrong. Accepting her means that the NAACP actually practice equal racism.

“The movement is larger than a moment in time or a single person’s story,” Dolezal said in a statement. “While challenging the construct of race is at the core of evolving human consciousness, we can NOT afford to lose sight of” the NAACP’s core mission, she wrote.

Dolezal has identified herself as partly African-American, but her parents say they are both of European origin. She attended the historically black Howard University and reportedly began identifying with the African-American community in the last ten years.
