'I'm a Filipino' says white transracial man (who also wants gender change)

Adam Wheeler who now goes as Ja Du considers himself to be from the Philippines and drives around in a Tuk Tuk- a vehicle used for public transit in the country

Turns out Ja Du is transracial, WTSP reported.

He was born a white male named Adam, but he now identifies as a Filipino named Ja Du. However, it is worth noting that Filipino is an ethnicity, not a race, so claiming that you're transracial just because you identify as Filipino is a big nonsense. Ja Du also identifies as a transexual.

Even in his everyday life, Ja Du embraces Filipino culture, for example, by driving around in a tuk tuk - a three-wheeled motorized vehicle that is common across South and Southeast Asia, including in the Philippines.

"If that's who they are and they want to celebrate it and enjoy it, then you have to think what harm is it doing?" All they want to do is throw themselves into that culture and celebrate it'.

"I think that we all have the freedoms to pursue happiness in our own ways".

The first major public instance of this was with Rachel Dolezal who, after being outed for lying about being black, came forward on television to say that while she was born white, she still identified as a black woman.

GIs are signs used on products that possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin. Mamata Banerjee took to her Twitter account to share the new saying, "Sweet news for us all".

Psychologist Stacey Scheckner told WTSP she's never had a client express a desire to change their race, but she has worked with a number of people who want to change their appearance in some way. And black is a culture, a philosophy, a political and social view'.

Never mind the fact that adopting a particular ethnic disposition may suddenly make one more marketable and in some cases eligible for certain benefits, jobs and scholarships, where they may have not previously been before.

He told the station that while he hasn't yet told his family about being transracial over concerns they'll laugh at him, Ja Du did say he's transsexual and is considering changing his gender - and has spoken to his family about that issue.

- Elle Cayabyab Gitlin (@evoque) November 13, 2017Ja Du, do you really want to be Filipino? Or stay home, work on a sugar plantation, and be shot for organizing your fellow workers.

An American man has been living his life as a Filipino, despite having been born white. Hypocrites. You idiots opened this box of idiocy now you can close it.
