Pimp By Blood, Not Relation: Jewish professor admits to living a lie as a black woman
We have another Rachel Dolezal on our hands.
A George Washington University associate professor has admitted to leaching off black culture and pretending to be a black woman.
Jessica Krug who is a Jewish/white woman calls herself a “culture leech” — in a newsworthy blog post on MEDIM.
In a post titled “The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies,” Krug, 38, writes:
“For the better part of my adult life, every move I’ve made, every relationship I’ve formed, has been rooted in the napalm toxic soil of lies.”
The self-proclaimed “historian of politics, ideas, and cultural practices in Africa and the African Diaspora” goes on to detail a lengthy trail of deceiving the public through deep layers of black woman appropriation.
“To an escalating degree over my adult life, I have eschewed my lived experience as a white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City under various assumed identities within a Blackness that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness,” she says. “I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie, and I have lied in every breath I have taken.”
Krug who has a Ph.D. and is the author of the book “Fugitive Modernities: Kisama and the Politics of Freedom,” which “interrogates the political practices and discourses through which those who fled from slavery and the violence of the slave trade in Angola forged coherent political communities outside of, and in opposition to, state politics.”
She blames childhood trauma for her disconnection from her true white identity, and says that she never had a plan to opt of faked blackness.
“There is no parallel form of my adulthood connected to white people or a white community or an alternative white identity. I have lived this lie, fully, completely, with no exit plan or strategy,” Krug writes. “I have no identity outside of this. I have never developed one.”
Krug also contributes mental health issues for planting the seeds of race appropriation.
“Mental health issues likely explain why I assumed a false identity initially, as a youth, and why I continued and developed it for so long,” she writes. “When I was a teenager fleeing trauma, I could just run away to a new place and become a new person. But this isn’t trauma that anyone imposed on me, this is harm that I have enacted onto so many others. There is nowhere to run. I have ended the life I had no right to live in the first place.”
Unlike others Krug knows that telling on herself is about to launch her into a whole other realm of popularity. She’s not seeking forgiveness. Also don’t think you’re about to cancel her, because Krug is canceling herself.
“I am a coward,” she writes, and then repeats it. “You should absolutely cancel me, and I absolutely cancel myself.”
All I really want to know is how kind black men treated her because she was “exotic and light skinded. 🤣
Are you mad or nah? Me – I really don’t give a phuck.
