What Does Controversial Acronym RCTA Mean on TikTok?

One of the TikTok users, @kyamewa, took to her TikTok page explaining what ‘RCTA’ means or stands for. She explained it saying that RCTA stands of “race change to another.” Similarly to RCTA is ECTA which also stands for “ethnicity change to another.” Since she posted this video, she has had over 30,000 views already.

I’m other words, @kyamewa holds the view that RCTA has the same concept as being transracial. But to some degree, people of the RCTA community think they’re more ‘educated’ than transracial-identifying people with the belief that the RCTA people try to learn more concerning ther inner culture and the languages, which still doesn’t make it good.

Using herself as an example, @kyamewa said that she comes from a Korean background with which she landed in Canada in her fourth grade. Most of her classmates saw her as different and thought she could not speak English, which, naturally led to bullying.

The RCTA hastage on TikTok has earned almost 6 million views already.

Others also have expressed their views on one of the main reasons that people later in their lives switch to the RCTA community. Some say switch or join the RCTA community after going through various difficulties including trauma, and hoping that switching into a brand new identity could do them some good.
