Meet The Black Teen Who Identifies As White Because Being Black Is “Ugly”

Treasure insists that she is white even though her mother says she is African-American. The 16-year-old says she has different features than black people, that she thinks and acts like a white person and that she is “completely and utterly better” than African-Americans.

Her mother, Monique, and brother, Kendal, say they are embarrassed by Treasure’s behavior and deeply offended by her comments — especially in front of other African-American people – so they turned to Dr. Phil for help.

When Treasure arrived in Los Angeles, Dr. Phil producers gave her a tour of the city and recorded her reactions to what she was seeing. Watch the video above to see what happens. And, see Dr. Phil’s reaction.

On Thursday, Dr. Phil introduces Treasure to a life coach. Will she agree to work with her? Check here to see where you can watch.
