Rachel Dolezal is just full of unfortunate surprises these days — although we guess that’s kind of her M.O. Either way, a day after we found out the woman who gave the world the fake movement of transracialism is modeling weave on the gram, she’s also revealed the namesake she’s planning to pass down to her unborn son. She told Vice’s women’s site Broadly:

“I’m naming him Langston because of Langston Hughes’ ‘Mother to Son’ poem. 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.”

While Rachel refused to comment on the child’s father (because you know we’re all wondering if he’s actually black; therefore adding a little credence to this Langston name), she did explain why she decided to keep their baby, telling the site, “I couldn’t handle any more loss.”
