Dr. Phil invited a 16-year-old black girl onto his show this week who insists she is white — even going so far as to say that she’s “completely and utterly” better than black people.
“I just know that I am white. I can feel it through my veins,” the teen claimed during her intro.
“When it comes to black people, I think they’re all ugly — and I have nothing in common with them,” she said. “I’ll never be like any of those n—oes.”
Identified only by her first name, Treasure, the young girl made a slew of racist statements about her “supposed race” during Wednesday’s episode, which caused an uproar on social media.
“This is the true definition of self hate,” wrote one Twitter user, who was retweeted more than 1,300 times.
“Where does Dr. Phil find these people,” another said.
Many viewers felt Treasure was putting on a performance for the cameras, but her mother, Monique, told Dr. Phil that she “truly believes she is white.”
“My daughter is a racist against her own race,” she said, claiming the teen is “consumed with the Ku Klux Klan.”
“I’ve had the KKK’s number since I was in middle school,” Treasure proclaimed. “The way they believe is just so smart.”
The high schooler told Dr. Phil that one of the reasons she “knows” that she’s white is on account of her body type.
“My figure is just like Kim Kardashian,” Treasure said, “and she’s a wonderful role model.”
The teen defended herself repeatedly throughout the episode and her intro, at one point saying: “There’s nothing wrong with my views or beliefs because I have freedom of speech and everything I’m saying is true.”
“I don’t have any issues with myself,” she added. “I think God made one perfect person — it’s me.”
