Somewhere along the way, 16-year-old Treasure either never found her Black Girl Magic, or some how lost it, because she’s claiming she’s not a Black girl, but a white girl.
Treasure’s mother, Monique, and brother, Kendal, brought the teen to Dr. Phil (of all people) to see if he could help her because she’s an embarrassment to them. According to Treasure, she’s “completely and utterly better” than other Black people.
“She wouldn’t play with the Black children,” Monique says. “Treasure would mangle or destroy her Black dolls. She would cut their heads off, pull off their arms. She would pretend that they were the white dolls’ slaves.”
“My daughter is a racist against her own race,” she says, stating that Treasure is “consumed with” the Ku Klux Klan. “If you ask me, my 16-year-old daughter has a very out-of-control identity crisis. She truly believes she’s white.”
In the interview with Dr. Phil, Treasure describes Black people as ghetto and even compares Black people to zoo animals. Delving further into her delusions, Treasure also states that she’s like Kim Kardashian, and doesn’t have Black people features. Treasure goes on to say that she has freedom of speech, and everything she thinks is true.
“Most African-Americans speak ghetto, and when it comes to Black people, I think they’re all ugly, and I have nothing in common with them. I act and think like a white person, instead of a Black person,” Treasure said. “When I think about African-Americans, I feel like asking them, ‘What is wrong with them’? They’re really dangerous.”
Dr. Phil, who seemed to be in disbelief, attempted to introduce Treasure to Spirit, a Black life coach from Atlanta, Georgia.
“I think if you get caught up in the very extreme things that she talks about, is that you miss the tragedy of her story,” Spirit said. “It’s not that she hates black people, it’s that she hates herself.”
Instead of Treasure taking Spirit up on her offer she extended to her to visit Atlanta to see strong Black women who are making it in the world, Treasure called the life coach a “hood rat”.
Something tells me Treasure needs a lot more help than a life coach or Dr. Phil can provide.
