Rachel Dolezal Is Now "Nkechi Amare Diallo"

In October, she found enough loose change to pay a $156 fee to change her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo.

Today, wherever you are, stop and take a moment of silence for the singularly insane Rachel Nkechi Amare Diallo Tupac Shakur Shaka Zulu Dikembe Mutombo Shaquanda Latasha Dolezal, who is the only recorded case of simultaneous white privilege, black power and racial oppression.

Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader who claimed to be black before her parents "outed" her as white, has legally changed her name to one stemming from two African languages to reflect the heritage she claims to identify with.

Her new name has origins in Africa and, according to the Washington Post, is a West African moniker meaning "gift of God". We thought it was a way for her to escape the stigma attached to her Dolezal family name since she apparently can't get a job, but we didn't expect this (we probably should have though). Even the university where she used to teach won't have Rachel Dolezal back again. This, despite allegedly applying for hundreds of jobs since losing her post as the former president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP. This time, for changing her name. Most recently it was revealed by various media outlets that she was on food stamps, unemployed and almost homeless. Since then, the 39-year-old says, she has had difficulty providing for her herself and three children.

She told the paper she had been turned down for more than 100 different positions and had only been offered work in reality TV and porn.

"Right now the only place that I feel understood and completely accepted is with my kids and my sister", Diallo told The Guardian.

"I feel that I was born with the essential essence of who I am, whether it matches my anatomy and complexion or not". And I'm a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community.

When asked if her parents were white, she mumbled, "I refuse ..." and walked off.
