Girl, Transracial is a Lie

I don't believe in Transracial, I just don't! And I don't think it's right to compare transracial with transgender. Some folks are trying to do it, but I'm here to tell you it's wrong.

I don't think you can be trapped in the wrong race. I get growing up in a certain neighborhood or country, and you have several unique experiences in those spaces. But at the end of the day, you can't turn around and claim you were born in the wrong race.

Now, Rachel Dolezal hasn't claimed to be transracial, because I think she knows better (maybe). But because of her, many people are questioning if it actually exist. Again, no it doesn't. It's make-believe, a lie and a weak argument. And to say it's the same as transgender... Girl, hand me your badge. Transgender is real. Trans women are not trying to pass as women, because they are women. The same for trans men. They are not passing or trying fool you intentionally. They are not lying to you, or stealing stereotypical pieces of your culture. So, don't get it twisted.

What Rachel did stems from her troubled life. Don't compare her foolishness with a trans person simply trying to live their true.

Transracial? That's a new one, and I ain't buying it either.

Ultimately this is not about "transracial" or even race period. It's about honesty and integrity. She blatantly and knowingly misrepresented herself. Basically she committed fraud.
