‘Transracial’ man born white feels like he is Filipino

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.

She (sic) has started a Facebook group for others who identify as “transracial.”

Many, including de Guzman, have compared Ja Du to Rachel Dolezal, the white woman and former NAACP chapter president who infamously identifies as black. De Guzman said he finds Ja Du’s claims of identity offensive in a political sense.
