Rachel Dolezal Allegedly Changes Name To Nkechi Amare Diallo

Earlier this week it was reported that Rachel Dolezal was on the brink of homelessness and was having trouble finding employment after receiving backlash for lying about being African American. New reports now say that Dolezal has taken it a step further and has decided to change her name to something a bit closer to her imaginary “roots.”

 

According to Daily Mail, Washington state documents show that Dolezal, 39, has legally changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo. Nkechi, which is short for Nkechinyere, originates from the Igbo language in Nigeria and translates to’ what God has given’ or ‘gift of God.’

Diallo is a surname of Fula origin. The Fula people are one of the largest and a widely dispersed Muslim ethnic group in the Sahel region and West Africa.

 

Before being outed by her birth parents, Dolezal maintained that she was black, even going as far as claiming her adopted brother was her son and posting photos of a black man she met in Idaho, claiming he was her father. She would often style her blonde hair in “natural” hairstyles, and on the side, would braid hair for extra income.

 

She now maintains that race should be a fluid concept and that she should be allowed to identify as African American because race is “not coded in your DNA.”

  1. There is nothing wrong w her wanting to be black, lol I know it’s shocking she wld give up her privilege to identify w the most hated race of humans.. but really, what crime has she committed?

  2. The crime of culture vulture. And if you don’t think it’s anything wrong with what she’s doing then if a black person comes out and says they don’t feel black they feel like they are white or whatever are you willing to accept that as well? Then what if a person is actually biracial? Do they get to pick which side they want to be on? That means our 44th president could say he’s not black cause he was born of a white woman and raised by white people so if he identifies more with white people we should let him be white.
