The other day R&B singer Keri Hilson hopped on Twitter to seemingly defend NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal amid controversy as a result of her white parents coming forward to confirm she’s been pretending to be a black woman for the last several years, and Keri told her followers that they should thank Rachel because she’s done more for black people than most black people.
Now that folks on social media have been in her mentions something serious for the remarks, Keri thinks it’s important to clarify her earlier tweets.

In response to the criticism, Hilson tweeted a clarification on Saturday. “I don’t defend her, I just don’t like to assume or pass judgement on people’s hearts,” she wrote. “WE don’t really know her motives. Only GOD.” Hilson added in a second message, “Hey, she got outta bed every morning & did excellent work for the advancement/equality of MY ppl. THAT affects me. Let God handle the rest!”
