George Washington University Professor Pretended to be Black for Years

Years after Rachel Dolezal made headlines, a university professor has come out and admitted that she’s been pretending to be Black for years.

Jessica Krug, an associate professor at George Washington University — whose areas of expertise are Africa, Latin America and African American history — wrote a confession on Medium entitled “The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies.” She wrote, “To an escalating degree over my adult life, 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.”

In the post, she mentioned that her mental health might be a factor in her actions throughout her adult life. “But mental health issues can never, will never, neither explain nor justify, neither condone nor excuse, that, in spite of knowing and regularly critiquing any and every non-Black person who appropriates from Black people, my false identity was crafted entirely from the fabric of Black lives,” she continued. “That I claimed belonging with living people and ancestors to whom and for whom my being is always a threat at best and a death sentence at worst.”

“I have lived this lie, fully, completely, with no exit plan or strategy,” she wrote. “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.”

She ended her post, saying, “There is no way for me to satisfactorily end this statement. 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 has since been suspended by the school. And students and staff members who have been affected by her actions have been offered counseling. “We want to acknowledge the pain this situation has caused for many in our community and recognize that many students, faculty, staff and alumni are hurting,” authorities from Gearge Washington U said. “Please know that we are taking this situation seriously and are here to support our community.”

Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy – Financial Leprosy Lyrics

[Intro]
The consumer is in no position right now to lead the country out of a recession

[Intro]
We look at dollars coming out of one pocket of the institution and going into the other pocket. The issue is larger than are there dollars to educate our children. The issue is do we want to educate our children

[Verse 1: Michael Franti]
Financial Leprosy
We got to get up
And wait in line
For the soup toilets
And things to read
Fill out 11-0-1s
And take a seat
But then we got to
Find a place to sleep
We got to lay down
Upon newspaper, cardboard
Concrete, and plastic sheets
Effects of ’80s public policy
We used to buy
Full shopping carts
And buy useless products
Trained to drain
Not to remain
Red line economy
“I have a dream”‘s reality

[Hook]
Well, self-effacing and mirror-hating
The ethnic notions and potions
But I still smell bad
Skin fader, tanning booths
In conjunction with their plastic boobs
And diet pills

All means to attract and distract
[x4]

[Verse 2: Michael Franti]
Designer glasses to see designer clothes
Designer cologne to wave under a designer drug nose
That sniffs through the perfume scented magazines
Try to make sense out of dollars
Often heard of, rarely seen
As an ear listens to the dial tone
I pretend to talk on a cellular phone
That I know I can’t afford
Well I used to own this street
And now I’m living on Market Street

[Hook]

[Sample]
Narco-gangsters concern us all. We will need speed and bass. Bass

It’s a matter of priorities when in California, 42% of the kids in CYA are African American and are about 8% of the population. It is a priority when 40% of those in adult corrections are African American

[Verse 3: Michael Franti]
Thieves generating revenues
Lottery poverty tax
Druglords and landlords
And praise the lords
They prey upon us
How did they ever
Manufacture consent
A meal in every trash can
Myth of the happy hobo
CoIntelPro
The Cosby Show
Why did the they cut the Pell Grant
So they can build cells
Ten years in prison
But no tenure at the University
Is this ethnic diversity
Or is it public policy

[Sample]
The ones who need education the most are not getting it

[Verse 4: Michael Franti]
Chemical bullets
Aimed at the Afro diaspora
A genocidal ghost
Manipulates a suicidal host
And as high technology
Eliminates the need for manual labor
And Mercedes Benz logos replace peace signs
On the necks of our youth

[Hook]

[Outro]
The poverty industry
The poverty industry
They can find $750,000 a week to pay police, but they pay community-based organizations for after-school activities
The poverty industry
The poverty industry

The poverty industry

Jaden Smith – Falcon (feat. Raury)

[Verse 1: Jaden Smith]
You got the cash, well I am about to come in and embezzle it
I am on a whole ‘nother level
I put the bass up in your face
You’re feeling it treble
You jokers corny like kettle
My superflow is olympic that I need a medal
Pop out the bushes like "Hello!"
I reach for the top and never settle
You say you rock, you a pebble
I rock and roll, I’m heavy metal
Where are you now
Where are you now (I’m whipping it)
Sitting back, Listening
Where are you, Where are you now
(Dipping it, butterfly, butterfly)
Where are you now
Falcon, Falcon, Fuck em

[Hook: Jaden Smith]
There’s cops on the road, Fuck em
There’s cops on the road
There’s cops on the road, Fuck em
There’s cops on the road, Falcon
I’m on the move
Cops on the road, Douse em
I got you all bouncing, Falcon

[Bridge 1: Raury]
I am not afraid to walk the lonely road
I’m so curious of where we go, oh
Who really cares, we won’t be there
When kingdom comes, it all falls down

[Verse 2: Jaden Smith]
I hope wherever you are
You can see all of the stars, constellations
I’m impatient, you are
Beautiful (beautiful)
You should know (you should know)
Wherever you go, imma follow
Wherever you go, imma follow
My heart is so hollow, I’m high as Apollo
Seventeen, having problems with all of them models
Who rather bring bottles on bottles
We gotta go skrt, hand on the throttle

[Bridge 2: Jaden Smith]
Oh only you, can hold me down
What do you think I’m doing when you’re not around
I’m just at home by myself
(Or out with them girls, oh we both know that doesn’t help me)
(No, no I’m ready to go)
So much better than before
Nigga said I wasn’t dope
But now my head is on the road

[Break]
Bounce (got me swerving on the road)
Bounce (all them cops is on the road)
Bounce, Bounce (Cops, Falcon)

[Verse 3: Raury & Jaden Smith]
Looking at my life East Atlanta
I’m an African American a variant to what my city’s like
The world’s going to hell
I just roll up the gas
And pass it all around the circle for my day 1 homies
Oh, you acting like you know me
Remember when I was so lowkey
Chill in the club, with a doobie and a cutie
Well I got a lil vibe, I know they gone judge me
But that’s a necessary evil
And I was gonna sin like people
I’m living a lie, trying to do this right
Go mama do your dance
Leave my money in advance, the Louie V pants
I’m never playing bout my bands
Kick in your door, “Doo! Doo! Doo!"
With the tool in my hand
Raury they don’t understand
We had to stick it to the man
We bout to hit the road
Leave the money where I can
Let them hate on this event
That’s just a piece of the plan
