The tragedy of the Trans-Blacks

Trans-Blacks are African Americans born in a white-skinned body. They usually know from a young age that there is something wrong. They gradually begin to understand what that is.  They are black human beings imprisoned in a white body.  This first revelation hits them hard. They yearn to be recognized for who they really are, but it’s so difficult to get others to understand how they feel.

Trans-blacks struggle to come to terms with their real skin color. Most are prepared to do to whatever is necessary to realize their dream of becoming a proud black human being.

Fortunately, trans-blacks are finally getting the help they need.

    A big slobbery welcome to my newest trans-black sister. Spring being a tough act to follow, God created June. Regular readers of this column will recall that the author bravely came out of the closet as trans-black in April, following years of misery in which my innate blackness felt like a complete mismatch for my white body – or, as I refer to it, my honkyself or crackersona.

    In my case, I had to rely on my natural charm and joie de vivre, sharp intellect and stunning good looks, quick wit and natural comedic timing, and of course my substantial modesty, to effectively shed my white dead-race and embrace the beautiful black man that was inside me. (Minds out of the gutter, please!)
