World Former NAACP Leader Who Lied About Being Black Adopts Igbo Name

Rachel Dolezal - the white former NAACP leader who believes she's black - is doubling down with a legal name change to Nkechi Amare Diallo.

The paper reported that Nkechi is short for Nkechinyere, a word orginating from Nigeria's Igbo language translating as "what god has given" or "gift of god".

In 2015, Rachel Dolezal, former president of the NAACP's Spokane, Washington chapter and a part-time teacher of Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University, was "outed" by her parents as white. She can not find a job, she said, and the only work she has been offered is in reality TV and porn.

The latest attack comes a month after a suicide bomber killed at least 20 people outside the Supreme Court in Kabul . It was followed by the sound of gunfire as Taliban attackers launched simultanious raids on security installations.

A TEDx talk she gave in April 2016 was the subject of "internal debate" at TED HQ, who eventually posted it, albeit with an explainer on why they delayed but then chose to share her speech online.

She could not immediately be reached for comment.

She told the Guardian that the only work she has been offered is reality TV and porn.

In response, Windows 10 is proactive in installing critical fixes and in rebooting to ensure that those fixes are actually active. While Windows 10 has a lot of happy users and continues to enjoy steady growth, two issues remain serious sore spots.

When asked about it on Twitter Thursday, Dolezal pointed out that her social media accounts are still under the name Rachel Dolezal. She should not be censored due to her unique perspective. She also reveals that she has written a memoir titled In Full Color, but has been turned down by over 30 publishing houses (although she has since found one willing to print it).

The New York Daily News referenced a recent interview Dolezal gave to The Guardian in which Rachel described herself as "pan-African, bisexual, an artist, mother, and educator".

"I do think a more complex label would be helpful, but we don't really have that vocabulary", Dolezal explained. I didn't choose to feel this way or be this way, I just am.

Dolezal told NBC that the book, is about "this larger issue of if you don't fit into one box and if you don't stay there your whole life, being identified from birth as who you are - what does that look like?"
