Jessica Krug, a professor of African American history at George Washington University, has just outed herself as not actually being black, according to the New York Post.
For years previously, Krug had been publicly identifying herself as an Afro-Caribbean woman, but she is actually of Jewish descent and from Kansas, according to her confession on Thursday, which she posted on her blog.
The blog posts starts off with "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."
This in contrast to the following excerpt from her published book Fugitive Modernities:
"My ancestors, unknown, unnamed, who bled life into a future they had no reason to believe could or should exist... Those whose names I cannot say for their own safety, whether in my barrio, in Angola, or in Brazil."
Krug continues in her online confession:
"You should absolutely cancel me, and I absolutely cancel myself. I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie, and I have lied in every breath I have taken."
"I have not lived a double life. There is no parallel form of my adulthood connected to white people or a white community or an alternative white identity. 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."
Krug has been a professor at GWU since early 2012, and has received awards for her dissertations and even financial support from the Shomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
She claims her mental health issues had a lot to do with why she did what she did, although she doesn't specify what these issues are or give any further information on the subject.
Her work is currently being pulled from outlets all over the world, and many groups are offering apologies to the public for having not listened to voices suspecting her true identity.
An official from GWU stated that they were looking into the matter and refrained from commenting further on the issue.
This isn't the first time that a white woman has been caught masquerading as a black woman. In 2015, former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal found herself in very similar circumstances to those of Krug, although her admission was not voluntarily made.
