African History Professor Admits She’s Pretended To Be Black For Years

A George Washington University professor has admitted that she has been lying about her race for many years by pretending to be black.

GWU’s website describes Professor Jessica Krug as a “historian of politics, ideas, and cultural practices in Africa and the African Diaspora, with a particular interest in West Central Africa and maroon societies in the early modern period and Black transnational cultural studies.”

But Krug has now admitted via a post on Medium:

“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. Not just any lies. 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 … every step I’ve taken has gaslighted those whom I love.”

Krug claimed mental health issues were a contributing factor to her deception.

“To say that I clearly have been battling some unaddressed mental health demons for my entire life, as both an adult and child, is obvious,” she wrote, adding that she suffered “severe trauma that marked my early childhood and teen years.”

“I am not a culture vulture,” Krug wrote. “I am a culture leech … I am a coward …”

Krug: ‘I believe in cancel culture… You should absolutely cancel me’

She then argued in favor of cancel culture, saying, “I believe in cancel culture as a necessary and righteous tool for those with less structural power to wield against those with more power. I should absolutely be cancelled.”

“You should absolutely cancel me, and I absolutely cancel myself,” she added.

But she then wrote, “What does that mean? I don’t know.”

That soon became clear. It means nothing.

“My politics are as they have ever been, and those politics condemn me in the loudest and most unyielding terms,” she wrote. “I have burned every bridge and have no expectation that any of my relationships are flame resistant.”

Krug concluded, “I have lived this lie, fully, completely, with no exit plan or strategy. I have built only this life, a life within which I have operated with a radical sense of ethics, of right and wrong, and with rage, rooted in Black power, an ideology which every person should support, but to which I have no possible claim as my own.”

“There is no way for  me to satisfactorily end this statement,” she finished. “This isn’t a confession, it isn’t a public relations move, and it damn sure isn’t a shield.”

“It is the truth, though,” Krug insisted.
