Why should Rachel Dolezal have all the fun? Meet Adam — sorry, Ja Du:


TAMPA, Fla. — Riding in a flamboyant purple vehicle, Ja Du shows up to a coffee shop to open up about his new identity.

Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino. Turns out the purple ride he drives around in is called a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines he says.


Ja Du hasn’t told his family yet because he believes they will laugh at the notion of changing your ethnicity. The public was very critical of Dolezal and might be for him as well, but [licensed psychologist Dr. Stacey Scheckner] believes everyone should be more understanding.

He thinks they’ll laugh? Well, that’s a pretty safe assumption, given how stupid this is. And Dr. Scheckner, there’s nothing to be more understanding about, unless you’re talking about understanding that this is really, really stupid.
