Top definition
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.

"I'm transracial so I'm black and I can use black slurs and actual black people cannot tell me I am racist and call me white. You have to respect how I identify because it's totally just as justified as being transgender, even though transgender people hate us calling ourselves transracial."
