This White Person Says They’re ‘Transracial’ After Eye Surgery
Just when we thought the world couldn’t get any crazier, another white person claims to be “transracial.”
White influencer Oli London from Britain has gone public with his claims that he is ‘transracial’, an identity that gained worldwide media attention in 2015 thanks to Rachel Dolezal. For years, the former leader of the Spokane branch of the NAACP successfully transitioned as a black woman despite being born white.
In a video posted on Twitter On Monday, London revealed that they had undergone surgery to “enhance” their “Korean eyes” in a bid to look like K-Pop idol Jimin from BTS.
“Now, finally, I feel Korean,” London said of themselves in the video. “I identify with the Korean community. Maybe they’ll accept me more now because I have the look. Maybe people will think I’m actually Korean, which would make me really happy. They can see how much I love their culture because I went all the way, because I love Korea so much… I just want to make Jimin proud too, because Jimin is my ultimate idol. I want him to be proud; I’m sure he’ll be proud that I look exactly like him now. I have his eyes. I finally have Jimin’s Korean eyes and they are so beautiful… So I’m so happy with my new look. I can’t wait to see the final results when my swelling goes down.
Shortly after receiving backlash for their identity, London tweeted, “TRANSRACIAL is a thing!”
“I invented it! If you can be transgender, you can be TRANSRACIAL. Live your life to the fullest, be who you want to be and spread the love,”
London tweeted while calling for a “war on revival”. London also asked Fox News personality Tucker-Carlson to respond to the issue by writing “Help me speak out against the injustice I face, the racism and transphobia of the WOKE MOB”.
London also revealed that their “transition” has included several surgeries over the past year.
“I just had a facelift, a brow lift, a temple lift, eye surgery – a canthoplasty – and my teeth too. These are just part of my transition. I feel really good, for the first time in my life, I feel beautiful. I look in the mirror and love the way I look and feel happy, and I hope people can respect my decision,” they explained. “It’s a very difficult decision to come out this way, but I’m coming out as non-binary…I don’t feel like I identify as male or female. I have just feel like I’m right in the middle and my pronouns are they/them, Korean/Jimin… I know a lot of people don’t understand me, but I identify as Korean, and I look Korean now I feel Korean. I don’t identify as British, so please don’t refer to me as British, because I identify as Korean. It’s just my culture, it’s my country. This is exactly what I look like now, and I also identify with Jimin – that’s my Korean name… I know it’s a bit confusing to some people. as Jimin or Korean, but that’s something you know if you’ve followed my journey for the past eight years.
London claimed in 2018 that they first attempted to make their transracial “transition” in 2013 saying “It’s sad during Pride month, a month that celebrates diversity, equality and love that the people of WOKE would use my coming out and share my non-binary Korean identity – something that took me many years to understand and accept and took tremendous courage to share with the world – and the use as a platform to bully, degrade and dehumanize me and the LGBT community… Although I recognize that many people don’t understand how I identify and may find this unusual – being Korean and feeling Korean does part of who I am and how I feel. And I will never allow one woke, bully, or troll person to take that away from me. I went through extreme lifestyle changes to become who I am today. today and I lived in Korea, I eat d I eat Korean food every day, I use Korean skincare, I had plastic surgery to look Korean, and I speak the Korean language – all of this shapes me as a person and my identity as a as a non-binary Korean person.
