A white professor at George Washington University admitted Thursday to falsely claiming Black and Afro-Latina identities for her entire career.

In a Medium post, Jessica A. Krug wrote that she is actually white — but that she “built her life on a violent anti-Black lie.”

“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,” she wrote.

Krug recognized that her continued thievery and appropriation, of specifically a Black Caribbean identity, is “unethical, immoral, anti-Black [and] colonial.”

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