Rachel Dolezal legally changes to African name

Rachel Dolezal, whose life was turned upside down after her parents revealed she was faking her racial identity, has reportedly changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo.

Rachel, who has acknowledged she as "Caucasian biologically", but prefers to be identified as Black, said the only work she has been offered is in reality TV and porn.

Dolezal identified as a black woman and was president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter in Spokane, Washington until her estranged biological parents revealed a year ago that her heritage is white.

The name has its roots in Nigeria and is short for Nkechinyere in the Igbo language, meaning "gift of god". One might argue that Rachel's decision is a bit duplicitous because she seems to be attempting to hide her past notoriety from any prospective employers, but the onus is really upon the management to thoroughly investigate job applicants when making hiring decisions. This, despite allegedly applying for hundreds of jobs since losing her post as the former president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP. She changed her name back in October 2016.

In his speech, he said that the agency could bring about a rolling back of the rules that were introduced during the Obama era. Scott Pruitt, the new EPA's new administrator, had sued the agency he now runs when he was attorney general of Oklahoma.

The name change escaped the notice of the public eye and mainstream news and apparently Dolezal, rather Diallo, counted on that to use her new identity. Dolezal says she made a decision to be publicly black years later following a divorce.

"Right now the only place I feel understood and completely accepted is with my kids and my sister", the natural blonde, who is living on food stamps and claims she can't afford her rent. She should not be censored due to her unique perspective.

Do I even need to remind you who she is?

But she also told the Guardian that she has no intention of apologizing for her actions: "I'm not going to stoop and apologize and grovel and feel bad about it". Her parents refute those claims. And I'm a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community.
