Cisracial (often abbreviated to simply cis) is a term for people whose experiences of their own race agree with the race they were assigned at birth. Cisracial may also be defined as those who have "a racial identity or perform a racial role that society considers appropriate for one's race."

Opposite of transracial.
I am perfectly comfortable identifying as the race my parents put on my birth certificate. I am cisracial.

Many transracial folks like Rachel Dolezal and Elizabeth Warren noticed a shift in their friendships after they transitioned, with some struggling to make friends with cisracial men and women, unsure of the social cues of cisracial friendship.
