Meet 16-year-old Treasure, a Black girl who identifies as Caucasian

Treasure, a 16-year-old Black girl who identifies as Caucasian, was a guest on the Dr. Phil Show this week. The episode sparked outrage after Treasure said Black people were “gross” and “ugly”.

“I’m white. I’m a Caucasian because everything about me is different from an African American,” said Treasure in an episode of Dr. Phil that aired on Oct. 24.

Treasure’s mom, Monique, asked Dr. Phil for help because her daughter despises Black people. Monique says she doesn’t recall when Treasure began identifying as Caucasian, or why she expresses racist views towards Black people.

Treasure told Dr. Phil that she considers herself to be Caucasian because white people have no problems at all.

Monique said she is embarrassed whenever she and Treasure go out in public, and her daughter utters racist remarks about Black people.

Dr. Phil introduced Treasure and Monique to Spirit, a family therapist who can help Treasure unlearn her destructive thought process to help her accept who she is.

Spirit blamed Treasure’s low self-esteem for her self-hate and society’s pressure for teenagers to be perfect, particularly on social media.

“We have issues around culture, we have issues around class, we have issues around racial identity, and we have issues around self-esteem,” Spirit said. “It’s not that she hates Black people; it’s that she hates herself, and she wants her old life back.”
