|1BlessedNatural: Black Teen on Dr. Phil Show is Diagnosed with Self-Hatred|
Story Update: Days after I covered this story, Treasure's sister NinaKimberly posted several IG stories stating that the story was "100% false." She also talked about alleged abuse in her family. Prayers for their entire family!
I had to talk about the 16-year-old Black girl named Treasure who recently appeared on an episode of the Dr. Phil show because she hated Black people i.e. herself. During the introduction of Treasure, she said, "I'm white because everything about me is different from a African-American." Then she went on to say that she didn't have features of Black people such as "nappy" hair, big nose and lips. Girl, by that time I was ready to close the video!
Listen, I'm no psychologist but this definitely goes deeper than that. While Treasure thought that she was a biracial child, where did she get the attitude that all Black people are monkeys and all of the garbage she had to say? It was almost like she was only a spectator watching the Black experience and life in general through a twisted lens. She admitted the only way she could feel good about herself was to put everyone else down. The girl also lacks empathy and it's sad to watch. She's going to need a whole lot more therapy and prayer sessions!
