Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino. Turns out the purple ride he drives around in is called a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines he says.
Ja Du is part of a small, but growing community of people who considers themselves transracial. It refers to someone born one race, but identifies with another.
“I’d watch the history channel sometimes for hours you know whenever it came to that and you know nothing else intrigued me more but things about Filipino culture.”
If you’re thinking this sounds familiar, you might remember the story of Rachel Dolezal. Dolezal was born white, but identified as black and portrayed herself as such. She was even the president of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP.

I was going to transition into a unicorn, but my 7 year old daughter said, NO you cannot become a unicorn, you have to be born a unicorn...so I feel a little deflated as unicorns get all the love in our house...hmm maybe a Pegasus?
What the left did to Rachel Dolezal represents for me one of this year's greatest hypocrisies.
If I can self identify as any gender, then why not race?
Can someone explain that to me?
And it just doesn't stop there. Ever hear of Otherkin? I'll save you the Google time. These are people who believe they are trans-species.
Personally, I'm fine with whatever you believe, as long as it doesn't require anything special from me. To each his own.
