A 16-year-old teenager, simply identified as Treasure, has expressed her dislike for African-Americans while appearing on a popular television show.
Treasure said “I’m white. I’m a Caucasian because everything about me is different from an African-American.”
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 a video shared on drphil.com, Treasure could be heard empathetically saying she does not have any problems with herself.
“God made one perfect person and it’s me”.
She said she just feels that black people should be put in a different place adding that black’s are very chaotic.
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.”
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.
“White people act and think just way more mature than African-Americans. Black people, they think in a criminal way.
“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.”
Treasure insists that she is white even though her mother says she is African-American. The 16-year-old says she has different features than black people, that she thinks and acts like a white person and that she is “completely and utterly better” than African-Americans.
Her mother, Monique, and brother, Kendal, say they are embarrassed by Treasure’s behaviour and deeply offended by her comments.
