Black Teen Believes She's A 'Proud White Person' And Thoroughly Hates Black People

Treasure not only believes she's white but she's also a supporter of the Ku Klux Klan. 

Racial identity in America has many layers, with aspects like "transracial" identity taking form. It's also allowed the youth to gravitate towards troubling views on African-Americans. But none seem to have more troubling factors than Treasure, a black teen who believes she's white. The 16-year-old isn't only sure of her whiteness but also has ignorant views about the black community.

Treasure and her mother Monique appeared on Dr. Phil Wednesday (Oct. 24). Monique explained her daughter has a long lasting hate for black people since she was five-years-old. Treasure is a fan of the alt-right culture, admitting she's a big of the Ku Klux Klan and calls black people monkeys. Monique believes her daughter's identity crisis began with the death of her husband in 2006, who is white. Speaking with Dr. Phil, Monique said she allowed her children to believe they were biracial because her husband was the only father figure they ever had.

Once he passed, Monique told Treasure and her brother Kendall the truth, with Treasure heightening her hate for black people even more. It continued once they moved from an affluent white neighborhood to a predominantly black neighborhood. Her role models also include Jennifer Anniston, Kim Kardashian (who is Persian) and President Donald Trump.

"It makes me feel good to put down African-Americans because it helps them stay in their place," Treasure said.  "I identify with the Ku Klux Klan because the way they believe is just so smart. White is right."

Monique also believes her daughter has body dysmorphia and thinks Treasure's time on social media has twisted her mind. Spirit, a popular therapist from Atlanta, called out the death of her father as the point her racial identity took a turn for the worst.

“We have issues around culture, we have issues around class, we have issues around racial identity, and we have issues around self-esteem,” Spirit says. “It’s not that she hates Black people; it’s that she hates herself, and she wants her old life back.”

Mental health is real, you guys. Watch clips from the Dr. Phil episode above.

Stream: Hulu's 'FYRE Fraud' Doc Examines The Festival That Scammed Thousands

In 2017, rumors of an exclusive festival taking place in the Bahamas took over social media. Organized by Billy McFarland and promoted by Ja Rule, the FYRE Festival was the new, cool kid on the festival block and quickly put other more seasoned festivals to shame.

But all that glitters isn't gold.

FYRE FRAUD, the new documentary streaming on Hulu, takes an intimate look at the scam that left thousands stranded on the island. Directed by Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason, the dark-comedy interviews whistleblowers, victims, and the convicted con-man himself, McFarland.

In a press release, Fraust and Nason said the goal isn't to make light of those who were scammed.

"Our aim was to set the stage for a strange journey into the moral abyss of our digital age, going beyond the meme to show an ecosystem of enablers, driven by profit and willing to look the other way, for their own gain.

"We draw on countless cultural references, on true crime tension, and on humor - but we did not intend to create a toothless comedy about the Fyre Festival. We hope this film can pierce our collective apathy and disrupt our own millennial peers, if only for an instant - to look at these stories for what they truly are, and to halt this algorithm before it devours us whole."

FYRE FRAUD is now streaming on Hulu.

Dave Chappelle Isn't Sure His R. Kelly 'Chappelle Show' Skits Were Insensitive

The Surviving R. Kelly series may be over, but the fallout from it has seemingly just begun.

Director dream hampton took to Twitter during the airing of the Lifetime documentary and spoke honestly about the several celebrity men she contacted in hopes they'd speak on camera about R. Kelly and the years of sexual allegations that have shadowed him. Among them was Dave Chappelle.

The beloved comic famously made a music video entitled "Piss On You" mocking the real-life video of R. Kelly urinating on an underage girl. During the Chappelle Show heyday, he used R.Kelly's legal woes as material for years.

TMZ caught with Chappelle in West Hollywood and asked him if he regretted not being featured in hampton's series and instead he dodged the question.

"Jesus Christ, I just had dinner," Chappelle said in between taking a drag of his cigarette. "I just ate. Strop bringing that motherf**ker up."

When pressed about whether or not he thinks his old skits were insensitive, the 45-year-old said "I don't know. I'd have to watch it again."

D.L. Hughley joined Chappelle for dinner and commented on R.Kelly and the forthcoming Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland, which outlines sexual assault allegations against the late singer.

"If you can be mad at R. Kelly, you should be mad at Michael Jackson," Hughley said.
