Transracial is a term used by people who are adopted into a family as a child from race other then their own. Such as a child adopted by parents of another ethnic group. Therefore that child is living the black experience or white experience or latin experience. A person here brought up Effa Manly who looked white but identified herself as black. She was raised apparently by one black parent, identified as black even though she didn’t “look” black. I will also say that I have cousins that look like Rachel Dolezal both 1.0 and 2.0, lol. One of which is blonde and pigment challenged as her childhood photos. No she is not adopted, no she is not biracial either, just harkens back to an ancestor who looked like that. The point is black hard to define at the best of times, but her lying is what sticks, it was unnecessary.
