          “My African-American Daughter Believes She is Caucasian”

          October 24, 2018

          PLAYING “My African-American Daughter Believes She is Caucasian”
          Treasure is 16 years old, African-American, and says she aligns herself with a certain group of people who are “perfect” just like her. And that group, she says, are Caucasians.

          Treasure has explained to Dr. Phil producers that in her opinion, white people don’t have any problems whatsoever, and that’s why her role models are Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump. Treasure’s mother, Monique, says she has no clue why Treasure began identifying as Caucasian as a small child and also has racist views against other African-Americans. Both Monique and her son, Kendal, say it is extremely painful and embarrassing to be somewhere in public and hear Treasure make disrespectful remarks to someone just because they’re black. So how did Treasure end up with such extremist views at age 16? Dr. Phil discusses how this family can make changes while approaching such a highly sensitive topic. And, he introduces Spirit, a licensed therapist and life coach, for Treasure to learn from as a role model.
