Did M'gann choose to be an ethnic majoriy on earth purposefully?

Like, was she aware being a white woman on earth would grant her a racial privilege she didn't have on mars? If that wasn't something she thought about before coming to earth, did she realize it after? What would that thought process be like for her?

Basically, how did M'gann identity as a white martian factor into her choice to present as a white woman on earth (if at all)

Greg responds...

I don't think that was in the forefront of her mind. I think she specifically chose to identify with Megan Wheeler. By the time she had the brain space to think about how she should or should not be presenting herself racially on Earth, she had already established her Megan Morse identity. So many people that WE get to see on the show know she's a shape-shifter, that it's easy to forget that the vast majority of humans that Megan interacts with do not. So in order to maintain her secret identity, she maintains her current racial status.

In order to honor her racial background, she stopped presenting herself as G'arrunn some time ago when in super-hero mode.

And just to be clear, M'gann doesn't equate being A'ashenn with being Caucasian.
