A 16-year-old American teen girl simply identified as Treasure, has rejected her identity, revealing her deep dislike for African-Americans while appearing on popular the popular Dr. Phil’s show.
Dr. Phil shared moments with the teenager on his verified Twitter handle, @DrPhil, on Wednesday.
In one of the tweets, Dr. Phil said, Treasure insisted that “that she is white even though she is African-American.”
In the accompanying video, Treasure could be heard saying, “Being black is so gross and ugly.”
When asked if she realised, she might be hurting other people’s feelings with her statement, she said, “African-Americans don’t have feelings, because they are not people.”
This statement of hers brought tears to her mother, Monique’s eyes.
According to Treasure, “I’m white. I’m a Caucasian because everything about me is different from an African-American.”
She claimed the fact that she has naturally straight hair that doesn’t require a weave, that her nose is small, and that her lips are a perfect size makes her white, “When it comes to black people, I think they’re all ugly, and I have nothing in common with them.”
Treasure continues, explaining why she believes she is white – and better than black people.
“White people act and think just way more mature than African-Americans. Black people, they think in a criminal way,” she says. “They’re really dangerous. If an African-American is on the same street as I am, I’ll cross the street to avoid their chaotic, thuggish ways.”
Monique said Treasure started having “issues with her race” when she was 5 years old.
