‘Transracial’ dude who was born white really believes he’s Filipino

Just because you’re born white doesn’t mean that you’re not Filipino.

Wait, WTF?

One very white man by the name of Adam has the internet going brazy today after the story about him identifying as a Filipino man went viral. Of course people are upset and some are even calling him the Filipino Dolezal!

According to his interview with USA Today, the man from Florida is what’s known as ‘transracial’ and is not alone in his identity crisis.

I guess years of peeping the culture on television and trying all the food really made this man feel at home. Who are we to judge? Adam said,

“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.

“Whenever I’m around the music, around the food, I feel like I’m in my own skin.”

Of course, there’s the whole discussion about this being cultural appropriation, or that it’s a result of his white privilege, but realistically who gives a fuck?

The fact that people are still getting tripped up about what people want to call themselves is beyond me but what else is the internet for?


As a young Flip myself, I truly don’t give a fuck and find this shit hilarious.

No lie, this is one of the most bizarre headlines in a while but it’s 2017 and if motherfuckers who ain’t Filipino wanna say they’re Filipino, then let them! It ain’t gonna change your life!

I’m not saying this guy is the greatest of ambassadors but who else is really claiming to be Filipino these days? Not even Filipinos themselves! All we got is Manny Pacquiao and who else bruh?!

There’s really nothing we can do at this point to stop this dude saying that he’s Filipino. I say we just let him rock and hope he doesn’t do anything too hotboy. Then we can fax his ass.
