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.

A ‘Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ Reboot Is In Development

A Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot is officially in development and being shopped to streaming companies including Netflix, HBO Max and Peacocks, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series will be a dramatic reimagining of the hit NBC sitcom, and is based off the viral trailer created by up-and-coming director, Morgan Cooper, last year.

Cooper’s Bel-Air, puts a dramatic spin on the story of Smith’s character’s move from West Philadelphia to the wealthy suburb of Bel-Air, Calif., where he lived with his Aunt Viv and Uncle Phil and cousins, Hilary, Ashley, Carlton and Nicky. The reboot has been in development for over a year and will be an hourlong drama, per THR.

Smith was so impressed with Cooper’s trailer that he flew to Miami to meet him last year. “I saw this trailer that Morgan Cooper hooked up. This is the first time that I’ve heard something and that I was like, ‘Yo, that’s an idea that is brilliant,” he said at the time.

Smith’s Westbrook Studios and Universal TV are behind the series revival. The original producers and creative team of Quincy Jones, Benny Medina, and Andy and Susan Horowitz, have reportedly signed on to executive produce the project.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air starred Smith, Karyn Parsons, James Avery, Alfonso Ribiero, Tatyana M. Ali, and Daphne Maxwell Reid, the latter of whom replaced Janet Hubert as “Aunt Viv.”

The sitcom ran from 1990 until 1996.

Watch Daniel Kaluuya As Fred Hampton In ‘Judas And The Black Messiah’ Trailer

Daniel Kaluuya transforms into Fred Hampton in the powerful new trailer for Judas and the Black Messiah. The nearly two-minute long clip shows Kaluyaa as the Black Panther Party leader delivering a powerful speech to a group of party members. Lakeith Stanfield, who portrays FBI informant William O’Neal, is also featured in the short teaser.

Directed by Chaka King and produced by Ryan Coogler, Judas and the Black Messiah tells the story of Hampton, who was assassinated by the FBI and Chicago Police in 1969, at the age of 21. Born in Chicago in 1948, Hampton mobilized a generation and became the Chairman of the Illinois chapter of the BPP. Hampton was so influential, that the FBI conspired to silence his voice. O’Neal was hired by the FBI to infiltrate the BPP, and rose up the ranks to become a sergeant in arms within the Party.

O’Neal became so close to Hampton that he provided the FBI with the floor plan to his apartment to carry out the fatal raid in 1969. He befriended Hampton only to betray him in the end. The film explores that dynamic and O’Neal’s fear that his cover will be blown.

After Hampton’s death, O’Neal went into infamy. He passed away in 1990o of a reported suicide.

Judas and the Black Messiah is slated to open next year.

Watch the trailer below.
