Say What?! Rachel Dolezal's New Name Is West African

Posted March 03, 2017

She has changed her name on legal documents but is still noticed by people on the street, who, as The Guardian reported, "point at her and laugh".

Rachel's reputation took a serious hit in 2015 when her parents outed her as being White, leading to loss of her position as an NAACP leader as well as a professor at a Washington university.

Dolezal is facing homelessness and unemployment as a result of her defiance to be seen as Black.

Nkechi, which is short for Nkechinyere, originates from the Igbo language of Nigeria - and translates to "what God has given" or "gift of God", the Mail reports.

But in the grand scheme of things, that may be one of her biggest mistakes.

National Hockey League trade deadline: Red Wings trade Brendan Smith to Rangers
However, it's hard to see any of those picks helping the Red Wings to a better season right away. "And, that's what happened". There will likely be more deals to come before the trade deadline now that the Red Wings are very clearly in sell mode.

The petition was listed under the name Nkechi Diallo - and didn't mention her birth name. But that tweet is no longer visible on her Rachel Anne Dolezal account. This, despite allegedly applying for hundreds of jobs since losing her post as the former president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP.

Granting or denying of a name change is completely up the judge that signs off on it, Christina Wentz, a Spokane County court official, said in a phone interview. According to the Daily Mail, the name means "what God has given" or 'gift of God'. Since then, the 39-year-old says, she has had difficulty providing for her herself and three children. She can not find a job, she said, and the only work she has been offered is in reality TV and porn.

Despite the fact that this ongoing circus lends itself to all sorts of jokes (many of which are admittedly in bad taste) I'm forced yet again to remind myself that there's actually nothing technically "wrong" going on here. And I'm a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community.

She would later go on to be activist for equal rights in Jackson, Mississippi.
