Rachel Dolezal tells South Africans she is ‘trans black’

American race-faker Rachel Dolezal has returned to the limelight with her first ever visit to Africa on a lecture tour about race – a move which has been met with outrage, calls for a boycott and a string of scathing memes.

Police flanked Ms Dolezal’s first key note event after a hostile meeting with mostly black students who objected to her insistence that she had ‘an authentic black identity’ despite admitting to being ‘biologically white’.

The 39-year-old, who was labeled an ‘ethnic fraud’ after passing herself off as a black woman for more than a decade, recently took a Nigerian name to make herself sound more authentic.

The shamed black activist, who now calls herself Nkechi Amare Diallo, outraged her young black audience in Johannesburg after equating her claim to being ‘trans-black’ with the trans-gender experience of Caitlyn Jenner.

‘I still identify as black… maybe trans-black is a good compromise because it identifies that I was born to white parents but have an authentic black identity,’ she insisted as students of the University of Johannesburg tutted loudly and shook their heads in disbelief.

The mother of three, who has been forced to make ends meet by braiding hair after failing to get work since she was ‘outed’ as white woman two years ago, was invited to South Africa by a retired black bishop who wholeheartedly supports her extraordinary claims.

Clyde Ramalaine told MailOnline he backed Ms Dolezal’s right to compare herself with transgender Caitlyn Jenner, who won Olympic glory when she was still known as Bruce, and argued there was an unfairness in the way the two had been treated.

‘I find it amazing that Bruce Jenner can be celebrated on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine and yet no one has ever said to him ‘but you deceived people all those years, you were in a male locker room, you slept with women’,’ he said.
