‘Afro-Latina’ Activist Reveals She Is Really A White Jewish Woman, ‘A Culture Leech’ Who Pretended To Be Black https://ift.tt/2QZB9x2

A white Jewish woman has been masquerading as an ‘Afro-Latina’ activist working at a college university and revealed her true self in an article she wrote on Medium titled, “The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies.”

The woman, Jessica A. Krug had written the following passage this week.

“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. I have not only claimed these identities as my own when I had absolutely no right to do so — when doing so is the very epitome of violence, of thievery and appropriation, of the myriad ways in which non-Black people continue to use and abuse Black identities and cultures — but I have formed intimate relationships with loving, compassionate people who have trusted and cared for me when I have deserved neither trust nor caring. People have fought together with me and have fought for me, and my continued appropriation of a Black Caribbean identity is not only, in the starkest terms, wrong — unethical, immoral, anti-Black, colonial — but it means that every step I’ve taken has gaslighted those whom I love.

“I am not a culture vulture. I am a culture leech.”

Jessica Krug, is an associate professor at George Washington University (GWU), but she has admitted to being a white Jewish woman from Kansas City.

Her bio on the George Washington University website reads:

Areas of Expertise

  • Africa
  • Latin America
  • African American History
  • Early Modern World
  • Imperialism and Colonialism

Yes, this scenario has reared its ugly head previously when another white woman, Rachel Dolezal, who was a white race activist who claimed to be a Black woman. She was outed by her parents back in 2015.

George Washington University released a statement after finding out the deception in the same way as we did.

Twitter was unforgiving towards Krug.
