‘I absolutely cancel myself’: African studies professor says she FAKED BEING BLACK most of her adult life, admits she is white

African studies professor Jessica Krug of George Washington University has come out of the race closet, admitting she has faked being black much of her adult life after growing up as a “white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City.”
“I am not a culture vulture, I am a culture leech,” Krug said Thursday in a Medium.com post. She added, “Every move I've made, every relationship I've formed, has been rooted in the napalm toxic soil of lies.”

Krug, who is an associate professor at prestigious George Washington, said she eschewed her own ethnicity and assumed a series of black identities, from North African to African American to “Caribbean-rooted Bronx blackness.” She said her appropriation of a black Caribbean identity not only was “unethical, immoral, anti-black, colonial – but it means that every step I've taken has gaslighted those whom I love.”
