[Ed. – Still black after all these years.]
Outed white woman Rachel Dolezal said she plans to name her son after African-American icon Langston Hughes, according to a report.
Dolezal, 38, revealed in August that she had gotten pregnant amid the outcry over her claims that she is black. She resigned from her position as the president of the Spokane, Wash., chapter of the NAACP after a Spokane TV station exposed her as the daughter of a white couple in June.
Dolezal, who now works as a hairdresser, declined to discuss the expected baby’s father but explained her choice of names in an interview with Vice’s female-focused news site Broadly on Monday.
“I’m naming him Langston because of Langston Hughes’ ‘Mother to Son’ poem,” Dolezal said. “Life hasn’t been easy for me at all, but I keep going. I’m still climbing, so don’t you sit down and stop. You keep going, and I want that to be a lesson for all my sons.”
