When someone dresses up as an Indian for Halloween the far-left would scream that your racist or participating in cultural appropriation.
Even two weeks ago pop star singer Justin Bieber changed his hairstyle to “dreads” and the left went screaming cultural appropriation on almost every major news outlet.
Well now a viral video that is making it’s way around the web shows a social media influencer identifying himself as “transracial”.
The Social Media Influencer’s name is Oli London and he got over 18 surgeries so he could look like Korean singer Jimin.
It appears the insanity of claiming your identity is turning out just how we thought it would end up, complete ideocracy.

If you can be transsexual you can also be TRANSRACIAL.Why are there such double standards & hypocrisy with people criticising me for being Korean. It’s the same as someone who was born in the wrong body and wants to become a man or a woman. I was actually born in the wrong body!

Newsweek had more on the story:
British-born white influencer Oli London has doubled down on their assertion that they’re “transracial,” after declaring they now identify as Korean.
London—who identifies as non-binary—has faced backlash on social media over the past several days, after saying on YouTube that they had “transitioned” races and cultures after surgery to resemble their K-Pop idol, Jimin of BTS.
And in a video uploaded to Twitter on Monday, London showed off their surgically-enhanced “Korean eyes” while speaking more about their identity.
“Now finally, I feel Korean,” said London. “I identify with the Korean community. Maybe they will 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 this is the extreme length I’ve gone to, because I love Korea so much.
Many users on Twitter had a lot of jokes to say about people who claim to be transracial:

The New York Post covered the bizarre story too:
A British-born white influencer has had 18 plastic surgery procedures to look like a member of K-pop band BTS — and now “identifies as Korean.”
Oli London — who uses they and them pronouns — on Monday shared a series of videos from a hospital bed to show off the latest round of work in their bid to look like Park Jimin.
“Hey guys! I’m finally Korean. I’ve transitioned,” London said in one video, saying they were “transracial” and now “identify as Jimin.”
“I identify as Korean — that’s just my culture, that’s my home country, that’s exactly how I look now,” the newly named Jimin said.
“I’m so, so happy I’ve completed my look … I have the eyes [and] I’ve just had a brow lift, as well,” said the influencer, who earlier tweeted about getting work on their lips to “look like JIMIN.”
Next people will start identifying as animals, plants, fish, etc…
