the peach colored ones. >> i felt very isolated with my identity virtually my entire life. >> reporter: black girls rock and plenty famous people cheering her need to be one. whoopi goldberg. >> she wants to be a black woman, fine. >> reporter: it these questions over her race and identity has a now word going viral, transracial in the same way some are transgendered but can you choose your racial identity. >> i have really gone there with the experience in terms of being a mother of two black sons and really owning what it means to experience and live black. >> reporter: and the world is chiming in. sherri shepherd tweeting transracial, word not appropriate for rachel dolezal. transgender versus rachel dolezal, not the same thing. another twitter user writing the term transracial belittles and undermines everything our brothers and sisters in the transgender community have
8:14 am
fought so hard for. but dolezal says she doesn't hear any of that. >> the rachel that i was before thursday is still the rachel i am now and the rachel i'm going to be in the future. >> reporter: she says she's comfortable in her own skin living as a black woman. for "good morning america," steve osunsami abc news atlanta. >> okay let's get into this debate. joined by our newest contributor, senior writer of espn the magazine lz granderson. first appearance on "gma." welcome. >> thank you. >> also professor ann morning, professor of social olgs at nyu. this whole debate over the term transracial. can someone choose it? >> i think in the case of rachel she's probably mixing up or interchanging race with culture, with ethnicity. race by the scientific definition includes genetics. i don't think that's necessarily something you can transfer from one to another. but you can identify with someone else's culture and can
8:15 am
identify with someone else's ethnic group and feel like you're a part of that for a variety of reasons but i don't transracial is accurate. >> we hear so many in the transgender community reacting to this term transracial. what do you think? i mean is it possible if you can switch genders can you switch races. >> i totally understand people are offended by the comparison because they think rachel dolezal is lying but in fact racial identity is not something i'm going to differ here from lz. it's not something that's objective based on your biology fix. it's not a matter of telling the truth or lying because they're a fiction, they're made up. >> from a dna standpoint. >> there's no such thing as a black gene or white gene. no test that we can do to tell whether a person is asia shan orn or -- >> there is science that shows there is -- there are genes you can identify racially and that social scientists tend to think of race being a social construct
8:16 am
and not a scientific one? actually this is a highly debated question whether you can tell from genes a person's race and, in fact there are companies that are trying to make money out there by telling us that they can analyze your dna and tell what your race is but they're taking categories they've made. >> not that complicated. she was born to white parents. she claimed that somebody else is her dad. those are clearly lie. >> she has definitely been deceptive about a number of things. but i think her racial identity is not something where it's so clear-cut because the racial categories themselves are made up. the census bureau testing a different set of categories for our index -- >> i wonder if you're referring to this. she said she know what is it means to experience and live blackness. what do you think she means by that? >> well let's put it this way. so we as a society have a very clear-cut idea of who is white and who is black. we think it's in your genes and depends on your ancestors and what she is saying not coming
8:17 am
out of the blue. racial identity also depends on who you feel close to. who you're affiliated with. so by her life she can be a black person because who she feels she belongs to. >> the beginning of this debate. >> thank you so much. very interesting. next up on "heat index," though the hot new health and beauty trend that's all about getting freezing cold. it's called cryotherapy and it's been generating a lot of buzz since lindsey lohan instagrammed pictures of her and a friend doing it. what are the health benefits. sara haines has the story. >> reporter: it's the artificial arctic blast for your body. cryotherapy, a revolutionary subzero health craze that promises big benefits. on monday actress lindsay lohan instagrammed several chilling photos showing a whole body treatment for her complexion and she's not the first to admit to freezing her butt off for beauty. stars like mandy moore and minka kelly are fans of cryotherapy.
