What does being Transracial mean?

With the outrage following Rachel Dolezal's falsified claims of being African American in 2015, the question of racial identity has been raised. Should we have the right to identify as a different race than the one assigned at birth? And is this legitimate, or another means of cultural appropriation?

Transracialism should be rejected as invalid and as cultural appropriation.

This newly coined term only gives way to racial frauding, deception and forms of cultural appropriation, which often cause offence to both races involved.

Being transracial is a legitimate identity.

Just like being transgender, it is valid for someone to feel as though they identify more with a race different to the one assigned to them at birth.
