Transracial white man

“Transracial” is a new hot topic in American society. White woman Rachel Dolezal broached this new territory when she claimed to be a black woman. Now, she has a peer.

Ja Du, born as a white man named Adam, says he is truly a Filipino.

Ja Du claims an affinity for Filipino culture. “Whenever I’m around the music, around the food, I feel like I’m in my own skin,” he said.

He is concerned about people saying he is appropriating Filipino culture as he drives around in his Tuk Tuk, a traditional Filipino vehicle. He says being a Filipino is how he wants to express himself. “I think that we all have the freedoms to pursue happiness in our own ways,” he said.

An interview with Ja Du is in the video below.
