An American lady identified as Treasure, 16, has become a hot topic on social media after she said  "I know I'm a Caucasian".

The teenager made the revelation while appearing on popular Dr. Phil’s show.

Dr. Phil shared moments with the teenager on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.

In one of the tweets, Dr. Phil said, Treasure insisted that “that she is white even though she is African-American.”

Though Treasure has relaxed hair, she uses the absence of kinks, curls and even weaves as further proof in her mind to demonstrate she is Caucasian

In the accompanying video, Treasure could be heard  saying, “Being black is so gross and ugly.”

When asked if she realized, she might be hurting other people’s feelings with her statement, she said, “African-Americans don’t have feelings, because they are not people.”

This statement of hers brought tears to her mother, Monique’s eyes.

According to Treasure, “I’m white. I’m a Caucasian because everything about me is different from an African-American.”

She claimed the fact that she has naturally straight hair that doesn’t require a weave, that her nose is small, and that her lips are a perfect size makes her white, “When it comes to black people, I think they’re all ugly, and I have nothing in common with them.”

Treasure continues, explaining why she believes she is white – and better than black people.

“White people act and think just way more mature than African-Americans. Black people, they think in a criminal way,” she says. “They’re really dangerous. If an African-American is on the same street as I am, I’ll cross the street to avoid their chaotic, thuggish ways.”

Monique said Treasure started having “issues with her race” when she was 5 years old.

After trying to determine the reasons for the teen’s behavior, Dr. Phil introduces Spirit, a licensed therapist and life coach, to weigh in on Treasure’s behavior.

The life coach says that Treasure does not hate black people, but herself.

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