According to NBC News, Transracial adoptees and their allies are speaking out about Rachel Dolezal’s and other’s use of the term “transracial” in conversations wrestling with her identity, arguing that it does not mean choosing to change one’s race, rather it means the adoption of a child, usually a child of color, by a family of another race, usually a Caucasian family.
“Many members of the White press have appropriated and co-opted a deeply meaningful, historical term – transracial – from the adoptee community,” Kevin H. Vollmers, Executive Director of Gazillion Strong, told NBC News. “They’re treating ‘transracial’ as though it’s a new thing. As a transracial adoptee, this is, at the very least, a slap in the face.”
