Rachel Dolezal

Rachel Dolezal has named her new baby boy Langston Attickus Dolezal, according to TMZ. 

Dolezal apparently put up a photo of her son—her third—on Instagram. Dolezal didn't reveal the identity, or the ethnicity, of the baby's father. 


It's not a stretch to presume that Langston might have been named after the African-American poet and writer Langston Hughes.

Just to refresh memories for those who need a quick primer, Dolezal was the the racial magician who tricked folk into believing that she was a black American. Her parents outed her as a white woman last year.
