Today in Transracial News: Luvvie Ajayi Unearths New Tale of Rachel Dolezal's Foolishness

In a series of Tweets, Luvvie Ajayi reveals even more ridiculous news about the transracial con artist.

I really wish Rachel Dolezal would just go hide under a rock somewhere and free me from ever having to write or think about her again, but sadly, that's not looking like it's going to occur anytime soon, so here we are.


If you haven't already heard, yesterday it was reported that she legally changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo—a random half Igbo half Fulani moniker that she has absolutely no business calling herself.

Apparently, that wasn't enough madness for this week. We weren't even given a full 24 hours before being slapped in the face with more of her transracial foolishness.

Today, the always-real Luvvie Ajayi, unearthed some more news about delusional Dolezal, that she received from one of Dolezal's former colleagues, and it's just as mind-blowingly insane as you'd expect.

At this point, I'm just here for the laughs, because I honestly can't deal.

Read the story via Ajayi's Twitter below, sadly it looks like there's even more on this coming soon.
