UW Grad Faked Being Black

What sort of mental illness drives this behavior?

A professor of African American history at George Washington University, who publicly identified as black, has now admitted she is a white woman from Kansas City and has been lying about her race for years.

Jessica Krug, 38, revealed on Thursday in a bombshell Medium post that she has lied about being black her entire career and admitted to deceiving her friends and colleagues.

She said in the blog post – titled ‘The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies’ -that she is white, Jewish and was raised in Kansas City. ‘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,’ she wrote.


Her neighbor in the Bronx, Anna Anderson, told the that Krug would call her ‘white trash’ and tell Anderson she was ‘gentrifying’ the neighborhood by going running.


Her biography page on the university website says she also specializes in subjects including Latin America, Africa, imperialism and colonialism.

She has a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, according to the GWU page.

    If men can identify as women and women a men…what’s the problem with identifying as black to get ahead?


  2. Kevin Scheunemann

    …after all Elizabeth Warren identified as a minority for decades to get ahead.

    Still got to give Trump props on getting her to take that DNA test….epic.

    I hope she has sense enough to take an extended leave and move without leaving a forwarding address. Her current address is probably no longer a safe space for her.

    Happens all the time. Whites, mostly women, pretend to be Black. They adopt the same dialect as some Blacks, act like they should be on Jerry Springer like a minority of Blacks think so.
    But if that what floats their boat, ok.

  5. jjf

    Wow, Mar.  Interesting racist / classist idea you have there.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    So its not OK to pretend to be another race to get ahead?

    But why do you leftist ilk allow men to pretend to be women to get ahead in race for women’s shower/locker rooms?

    Not getting the logic in leftist perversity here.

  7. jjf

    Of course I do not think people should misrepresent themselves or otherwise tell lies.  But Mar’s talking about the way people talk, and that – and I’m paraphrasing him – some white women are talking like black women, so therefore they’re pretending to be black.

    Let’s flip that, for example.  If Mar spots a black person who doesn’t have the dialect he expects, what are they pretending to be?

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    So if you have male body parts, its wrong to claim you are a woman?

    I had no idea you were so anti-woke!

  9. jjf

    You don’t want to talk about Mar’s racist thoughts?

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    And there are folks , pretending to be successful businessmen, who are serial and chronic attendees in bankruptcy court.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    I wanted to talk about why it’s not OK to pretend to be another race to get ahead?

    Does that question violate your ideological cult?

  12. Mar

    “Wow, Mar.  Interesting racist / classist idea you have there.”
    I realize with your white privilege and your racism, you don’t set foot in the inner cities much, so I kind if expected your ignorance.

  13. jjf

    And you look down on these people, Mar?  Go on.

    Kevin, of course I do not think people should misrepresent themselves or otherwise tell lies.

  14. Kevin Scheunemann


    So what should happen to this woman and Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris?

    Resignation? I hearty “don’t do it again”, even if they keep doing it?

    Just curious.

  15. jjf

    From a genealogy perspective, the “we’re descended from an Indian princess” is exceedingly common in her part of the country and rarely true, so it doesn’t surprise me a bit.

    People assert it, tell the story they heard from grandma when they were a kid, and rarely have anything resembling proof, and the story persists.

    What should happen?  She confessed.  Maybe it’ll have an effect on her career.

    Warren did a DNA test and had to stop telling her story.

    What did Harris do that you didn’t like?

  16. Mar

    “And you look down on these people, Mar?  Go on.”
    Nope, never said that.
    Said the opposite.
    But looks like you do to suggest it.

  17. jjf

    Where’s your norm, Mar?  White women are supposed to talk one way, black women another, and you’re concerned about one talking like the other?

    “Whatever floats their boat.”

  18. Kevin Scheunemann


    If this is no big deal, why are your ideological bretheren in such a tizzy?

    John Foust throwing around his Liberal Privilege again.

  20. Mar

    jjf, it’s the time of the month for you?
    I was making an observation.
    You are starting to sound like Senile Joe.

  21. jjf

    Mar, so you reply with…  another sexist comment?

  22. Mar

    Really, how is it sexist?

  23. jjf

    As Gloria Steinem put it:

    If women are supposed to be less rational and more emotional at the beginning of our menstrual cycle when the female hormone is at its lowest level, then why isn’t it logical to say that, in those few days, women behave the most like the way men behave all month long?

  24. Randall Flagg

    What is it with people pretending to be something they are not just to get ahead?  First Jerry Falwell Jr, now this.

  25. Kevin Scheunemann


    You mean like Joe Biden?

    Should he be taken out of the game like this woman for a decades old lie?

    Liberals seem to have a disgusting double standard on punishment….

  26. Mar

    Umm, Randall, the problem with Falwell Jr., is he did not get ahead

  27. Mar

    Gee, jjf, you are the sexist here. I was referring to the end of the full moon and you going back to a human being. Not abnormal human being, mind you, but you might have gotten rid of your neck beard after the full moon.
    Or it’s the beginning of the month and you already lost your monthly paycheck at the local bar.
    Or you lost your social security check playing 3 card Monty on the Milwaukee trolley.
    Or perhaps, you already used up your EBT card and it is only September 5th.
    Or, you used up your client’s money going down to a strip club and putting dollar bills in the thong of a stipper.
    Wow, you have such sexist thoughts.

  28. jjf

    Uh oh, now Mar is lying.  Deliberately intending to deceive.
