when a person who is born of one race, makes the decision to become or represent themselves as another race. This is often done by persons who are mixed or biracial and can hence pass for multiple races. In more extreme circumstances, persons will change their outward appearance (through tanning etc.) to appear to be of one race and not another.
Damn Rachel Dolezal just did that swerve on her white parents by deciding to live as a black woman and disowning them. Now they mad as phuck. She just up and became a transracial overnight.

A person that is born one race, but can fit into multiple races through their actions. Similar to a transethnic except a transracial does not feel that they are suppose to come from a different ethnicity.

Famous Transracials include: Barrack Obama and Tyra Banks
Nicole: I can't stand how Ashely hangs around the whites and the blacks without anyone kicking her ass.

Sally: That's the advantage of being transracial. I heard she's even gotten into the asian crowd as well.
