If you're not familiar with the epic story behind Rachel Doleza, buckle in, because it's a long ride. Doleza is the former leader of the Spokane National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) who ignited a firestorm in 2015 when it was revealed that she was white, and had been passing herself off as African American for years.
Following the revelation, she resigned from the NAACP. Allegedly, she still hasn't been able to find another job, even a minimum-wage one. She told The Guardian recently that she expected to be homeless within a month.
Now, she's making headlines, yet again. It emerged from court documents yesterday that Doleza has legally changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo, a name with African origins.
If that wasn't enough, NY Times best-selling author Luvvie Ajayi, who has been an outspoken critic of Doleza, claims to have recently got an email from one of Doleza's former coworkers. It details exactly how Doleza attempted to deceive them all, and all the antics she got up to. It's well worth a read.
