Now, That's Self-Hatred.

Treasure is a 16-year-old black teen who says despite her appearance, she is white. She says she thinks and acts like white people, and that she is not black because “African-American people are hood rats, thuggish, and ghetto”.

Treasure recently stopped by Dr. Phil to explain why, despite her biological mother and father being African-Americans, she believes that she is truly white.


“Most African-Americans speak ghetto, and when it comes to Black people, I think they’re all ugly, and I have nothing in common with them. I act and think like a white person, instead of a Black person,” Treasure shared during her one-on-one interview segment leading up to her public debut on Dr. Phil’s show. “When I think about African-Americans, I feel like asking them, ‘What is wrong with them’? They’re really dangerous.”

We have certainly heard ignorance like this from other races. Treasure, however, is clearly an African-American.

“My daughter is a racist against her own race,” Treasure’s mother told Dr. Phil. “If you ask me, my 16-year-old daughter has a very out-of-control identity crisis. She truly believes she’s white.”

Some of the reasons why young Treasure believes she is Caucasian is because of her speech, which, by her terms, is not ghetto. Treasure also revealed that her identity as a white woman is due to the fact that she has perfect lips and a body that resembles Kim Kardashian’s figure.

    This is so sad this inexperienced, uneducated and totally out of touch with reality young lady equates lifestyles and financials with the color of skin. You have to ask, what type of environment has she been exposed to that brainwashed her, clearly she has been sheltered and snowed at the same time. How could someone so young have so much disdain for people that look like her. Unfortunately she’s not alone, but not in a crowd either.
    Her mom could start by giving her a challenge, stop relaxing her hair for starters then lets see her hang her head and flip that bang, allow her to get a job if she doesn’t have one already. Then let her figure out how to pay for college and dress herself, and help put food on the table like a lot of people, black and white had to do. Fortunately most of us pulled through, black and white. By the way, why didn’t you take her to a white ghetto and really hear more stupid pouring out of her mouth.
