Written by Wamiq Ali

The word can sometimes prove to be pretty strange. There are a lot of people with different personality types residing in the world. After meeting people you may like some of them and you may also dislike a lot of them, point is that not everything resonates in absolute favour.

New York Post reported about a guy who is born white but he feels more comfortable declaring himself as Filipino.

Ja Du, who was previously named as Adam said in an interview that he considers himself transracial. Transracial is a term which is dedicated to the people who are born in a different race but due to certain reasons, they want to be identified as another.

The guy has his own reasons to be called as a Filipino, he said in an interview that after living the life of a Filipino and prior to it learning about it, ‘I knew that it was a perfect fit for me’. The guy liked the culture, food and traditions of the country Philippine.

I’d watch the History Channel, sometimes for hours, you know, whenever it came to that, and you know, nothing else intrigued me more but things about Filipino culture. – said the guy

As a profession, the guy drives a purple tuk-tuk which is a way to accept his new identity. We have an interview with the guy which you can watch below.

This is not something new and not definitely a unique case. There are people who have made decisions like this before and have made to the headlines of popular news channels. Rachel Dolezal, Former NAACP leader had made similar confessions.
