White model undergoes surgery in an attempt to become a Black woman

via @MartinaBig Facebook

Martina Big has spent thousands of dollars on surgeries in an attempt to become a Black woman. The model, who is originally from Germany, continues to highlight her racial transformation on social media.

“I have great news. I had done the next step in my transformation to a black woman. Yesterday I was with an African hairdresser and got a hair extension with curly, African hair. To become more and more a black woman, that is such a wonderful feeling. I’m so happy. Next, I’ll have consultations for the butt enlargement and for the African facial features,” Martina Big wrote on her Facebook page.

Martina Big likely considers herself to be transracial. After Rachel Dolezal was outed for lying about her race, she claimed that she was transracial by comparing it to being transgender. However, similar to Dolezal, Martina Big’s exploration into Black culture is flawed due to her gross embrace of Black stereotypes.

Martina Big’s perception of Black women includes big lips, big breasts, a big butt, and other “African facial features.” She’s only interested in fetishizing Black bodies without taking the time to fully understand what it means to exist as a dark-skinned person in this world.

In 2015, Dolezal made headlines after a reporter discovered that she was passing as Black and claimed that a Black man was her father. It was eventually discovered that Dolezal was a White woman who was raised in Lincoln County, Montana. She enrolled at Howard University and became a branch president of the NAACP in Spokane, Washington. But she encountered backlash due to her numerous lies and failure to recognize her participation in “Blackface.”

Martina Big is the latest example of how White privilege allows her to try on the skin and stereotypical body shapes of Black women as if they were accessories.

      1. You are selling yourself short if you believe this woman wants to be more like you. Judging by your picture you are very pretty and this woman is a monstrosity. This isn’t flattering at all. This woman is mentally ill and her image of what bw look like reflects that. This is a racist caricature of what bw look like in her warped mind.

      2. its interesting that when a white person wants to be black people are impressed but when a black person wants to be white then they are ridiculed by both blacks and whites.

  1. i dont see a issue with her embraceing black, features ,black women have been trying to talk and look white for a decade even in the 50 black like etta james was wearing white hair , its no secret , black are trying to immitate white on a regular so why cant they do us . white been tanning trying to be dark for year mariloyn monro had a black woman body reason so many men lust after her , that slochy big butt and droopy breast and thick thighs , and lushuious juicy lips white me devour that .. and wish they could have one . you see how many white men marrying black women now days , its growing , that makes white so angry , the average white chick want a black man but to scared of the racial white who will harm her and her family if she got black kids . . it will change one day .. every other couple will be mixxed race in about 50 more years .. we may be dead but it will happen

    1. Sweetheart you have got to be kidding right? Do some research before exposing to the www how truly ignorant to truth you are. Blonde hair and blue eyea are not exclusive traits of white people. There is a tribe in Australia who have very dark skin, blonde hair and blue or light colored eyes. Why is it we are said to be emulating white culture if we dye our hair blonde or wear weaves? Or even if we do grow long hair we are questioned whether its weave or not as if we cant grow long hair….smmfh…a black woman started hair extensions and the weaving process used today. Etta James was of mixed races(black and white) I myself am mixed (black&puerto rican) and when I stay in the sun2long my hair gets streaks of blonde and red..when I was younger it was strawberry blonde naturally….we come in all shades with different features. We have been emulated for centuries but because we do not know of our true history and heritage we have been brainwashed to believe that certain things originate with white culture which is untrue..

    2. I understand what you are saying. I am white and find full features on a woman very attractive, but all this cosmetic surgery is getting out of hand. What this woman is doing to herself is too extreme and disturbing. I wish everyone would just accept the natural features they are born with.

    3. There is no such thing as a black person or white person those are social constructs created in the 1700’s to justify the enslavement of a free indigenous and aboriginal people. Thus she is coloring herself and could never be considered indigenous or aboriginal which is what the underlying subject matter here not being addressed. We are the autochothonous indigenous aboriginal beings of which she shares no history, blood, birthright or legacy. She is an epic disgrace and failure of this. Although she is a appropriator for sure.

  2. Sorry to say that having surgery does not make you a black person. It’s bigger than having cosmetic surgery. Your Genetic makeup is not that of a black woman. Carbon and Melanin is the key. You can’t but that with surgery.

    1. What’s the problem. Black women bleach their skin, wear straight, silky weave. White women darken their skin by tanning, and using weave before we were.Where will this end, stop hating, black and white people

    1. that’s when people will become outraged about people changing their identities. both blacks and whites threatened by the idea of transracial surgeries.

  3. OLe WIllie be takin’ a looksee at d’em photos. AS a BEcky she gots d’em vanilla uddas. I’Se could suckle on d’em fo’ days on end. SHe not bad lookin’ as a cracka, but now as a sista she look like da back side o’ sum MRs GRimace! EVen MIckey DEe be havin’ nuna d’at

  4. why would any white person want to intentionally make their lives significantly more difficult! You were fortunate enough to be born into the most privileged generation of people in world history. Take advantage of it!
