White woman undergoes cosmetic procedures to make herself ‘black’

Nope. Big nope.

Just passing the two-year anniversary of self-proclaimed “transracial” woman Rachel Dolezal being outed as a white person in blackface, it’s only completely rational that another white woman come along and try to outdo her. And holy shit, outdone her she has.

According to the Root, a white German “model” by the name of Martina Adam has how taken the crown for most offensive blackface portrayal in modern history.

Adam, known as “Martina Big” for allegedly possessing the largest breast implants in Europe and for her appearances in Botched, claims she’s well on her way to becoming a “black girl” now that she’s undergone a series of “tanning injections” to darken her skin, and has somehow convinced an “African” hairdresser to give her black, textured hair.

In her latest post regarding the offensive transition, Adam says she’ll be undergoing consultation for a butt “enlargement” and for “African facial features.” (Editor’s Note: Adam’s posts have been set to private since the publishing of this article.)

Despite arguments previously made by Dolezal (that would almost expectedly be parroted by Adams, too) that she’s “transracial,” there is no psychological proof that black and white Americans are different neurologically (yes, Adams is German, but the argument stands). In no way are the experiences of these white women linked to those of transgender people, who really do experience their gender identity on a neurological level.

Additionally, Dolezal has attempted to bolster her argument that being “transracial” is a thing by claiming that mixed-race women have spoken to her about the frustration they face in identifying as two or more races. Which, yes, is a complete and total thing, especially when it comes to facing colorism or being a white-passing person of color. But Dolezal, much like Adams, is white, and only white, and doesn’t know what it’s like to move through the world as even a white-passing woman of color.

Maybe Dolezal will help Adams out when it comes to picking out her “authentic African” name. The rest of the world surely doesn’t want to be bothered with this mess.
