Why do some people want to be something they are not?

Like Rachel Dolezal, or lots of teenage white  kids who try to act black.  And it’s not just limited to whites.  There are some south Asians and East Asians who bleach their skin or get eye surgery attempting to look more white.  Is it caused by rejection by family early in life?

    It is caused by the propaganda by the government and the news.

    It is caused by a strong desire to "fit in" with the crowd you hang with.
