There is no intelligent, legitimate correlation between the two. Being transracial does not exist and it is simply a ridiculous, outrageous concept created by white privilege. White people are the only ethnicity of people who can go around claiming that they are ‘transracial’. A black person who is racially profiled can’t just turn around and successfully say “But you don’t understand: I’M ASIAN! I am an Asian trapped in a Black person’s body! I have felt so passionate and influenced by Asian culture for YEARS: I’M AN Asian TRANSRACIAL.” A Mexican whom someone just called a sp*c and insulted as an illegal immigrant can’t just say “But you don’t get it: I’M WHITE. I’m a white transracial and I have ALWAYS felt like a white person deep down inside. I identify with white culture therefore, ignore what I look like and treat me as some intangible product of white culture.” An Arab can’t just explain to another Arab who approaches them speaking the language, “I’m actually East Indian. I may look Arab and have grown up submerged in Arab culture, but deep down I’m an Indian girl who loves vibrant clothing and Bollywood.” -_- THEY’D LOOK ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS.
White people are the only ones who are culturally insensitive and ridiculous enough to go around saying that they are “transracial” as if it’s a real thing. Any other group of people are addressed as the ethnic group they were born into no matter what.
“Transraciality” is a product of white privilege.4
