A new phenomenon seems to be hitting the social media airways. Transracial is the new topic that is sending shock waves through social media these days. What is this new term and is it really catching on? It seems the answer would be yes!
The concept of transracialism seems to be becoming more popular among Caucasians and lighter skinned individuals. Skin darkening is not a foreign concept to us – though this takes tanning to whole new level! Cosmetically changing your race seems to be catching on, even if it is on a small scale.
German model Martina Big has become the latest to join this phenomenon. She has invested thousands of dollars to this new fad. She posted on Facebook showing off her new transformation and stating:
“I have great news. I had done the next step in my transformation to a black woman. Yesterday I was with an African hairdresser and got a hair extension with curly, African hair. To become more and more a black woman, that is such a wonderful feeling. I’m so happy. Next, I’ll have consultations for the butt enlargement and for the African facial features.“
Recently, she announced that her husband is now getting melanin injections in order to change his skin color as well.
Could this be the next big thing? What are the health risks? It has many in an uproar! Could this be as acceptable as being transgender? There are many opinions regarding race across social media outlets. It will be interesting to see how this develops. Will it fade out or is it here to stay? I am sure we will find out!
