A White professor declares she has been hiding her Black identity for her entire professional career

A White professor declares she has been hiding her Black identity

What an intimate shock for everyone when it was revealed that Jessica A. Krug, for her entire career life, has portrayed herself as a black person. Jessica is an affiliated professor at George Washington College who has written about Africa, Latin America, the diaspora, and identification. She presented herself from Black and Latina heritage.

The Thursday article released on Medium.com revealed the true identity of Jessica A. Krug, being a White and Jewish native. She wrote that she experienced her life living as a white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City.

Another main point by Jessica

Another point was cleared on the post made by Jessica that she had no right to claim these identities of Black and Latin heritage. Jessica being a White woman has made unjustness to the Black community and has demoralized the identities and cultures of the Black.

Jessica apologized for the appropriation of Black Caribbean identity and accepted that she was unethical, anti-Black, immoral, and colonial. She is very epitome of violence, of thievery, and appropriation that non-Black people continue to use for abusing the Black people.

A student is shocked by the revelation 

It was a piece of quite shocking news for a junior student studying international affairs at George Washington named Anmol Goraya. The former student, Anmol had Jessica as her introductory history class professor in the spring session of 2019. 

At that time, the student said that Jessica used to dress up in the leopard print with huge hoop earrings & classic heels for the class. Krug has always been Anmol’s one of the favorite professors because of her energetic and colorful style to live. Anmol said that she was always curious to know more and more about her.

Goraya also talked about Jessica

Goraya exclaimed that Jessica often marked the Blacks and sometimes shared the struggles of Black champions and indigenous artists. She also lectured on topics like the role of rice in the African diaspora and the Indigenous populations in Chile. Goraya was really inspired by the professor, but it all turns out to be a great lie.

Jessica told the class that she was proud to be a Bronx native. Her speech included lots of Spanish wordings as she would rather prefer to say “plátanos” than the “plantains.” It was always quite uncertain from where she actually belonged. One student told me that her family lived in the Dominican Republic, while another student told me that she was from Puerto Rico.

Krug would also say the N-word when it was in texts the class was reading, Goraya told CNN.

The university is investigating

Crystal Nosal, a spokesperson on behalf of George Washington University told CNN that the university is looking into circumstances that have formed up after Jessica’s posting. Moreover, the university cannot further discuss their staff’s personal information. CNN also tried to reach out to Jessica herself, but they didn’t have an immediate response.  

Jessica’s case took us back to a glimpse in 2015 where Rachel Dozel who taught Africana studies at Eastern Washington University and headed her local chapter of the NAACP. She is another White woman who passed her career as a Black woman.

Headline on twitter

It became headline news on twitter as people started talking about that White woman like Jessica taking away job opportunities from the black. Everyone on twitter is protesting that non-black people are doing unjustness to the Black community.

Organizer Leslie Mac wrote in her article that she can’t undo the harm at any cost, which was caused to the black community. Jessica kept hiding her identity and she was even rewarded for her efforts.  Leslie complained that her sole objective was to get attention and access by pretending as a Black Woman.

She referred to her ancestors in one piece 

According to her staff page on George Washington University’s website, it is clearly mentioned that Jessica A. Krug in 2012 received her Ph.D. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Jessica as a History Professor

Jessica is a history professor who takes a deep interest in ideas, cultural practices, and politics of Africa and the African Diaspora. Her main interest resides in Black transnational cultural studies and West Central Africa and maroon societies in the early modern period.

Jessica in her book Fugitive Modernities: Politics and Identity outside the State in Kisama, Angola, and the Americas, interrogated the political practices and discussions upon slavery and the violence of the slave trade in Angola. She began the book by referencing it to those who came before her, her grandparents, and her ancestors. The book is now placed as evidence that Jessica has always lied about her identity.

Jessica searched the communities of Brazil and Colombia for the use of seventeenth-century maroon (fugitive) and later ended the book by explaining the relationship between resistance, non-state politics, and colonial and post-colonial politics.

Book of Jessica named Fathers of No Nation

Another book of Jessica named Fathers of No Nation compares the relationship from the sixteenth century through the present about resistance leaders and the gendered politics of authority in the states of São Tomé, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica.

Most recently on August 27, she wrote Essence’s Magazine named that article with “On Puerto Rico, Blackness, and Being When Nations Aren’t Enough.” The piece has been removed from the Essence’s site since she revealed her identity.

Her areas of expertise include Africa, Latin America, African American History, Early Modern World, Imperialism, and Colonialism. Prof. Krug has also written on hip hop, politics, and gender in both Angola and New York City. She is deeply interested in studying intellectual histories who never wrote about the use of embodied knowledge for both research and teaching.

Classes taught:

  • HIST 1011: World History, 1500-Present
  • HIST 3501: Topics in African History
  • HIST 3510: African History to 1880
  • HIST 3520: Africans in the Making of the Atlantic World
  • The Caribbean on the Move: The Politics of Immigration and Popular Dance in the Caribbean and Its Diasporas
  • Africa and the African Diaspora: (Trans)Nationalism and the Politics of Modernity

Laura’s nature is changing with each passing day like Storm Marco, the only difference is that Marco is losing its intensity and is becoming weaker with every day and is not dangerous anymore, while Tropical storm Laura is getting stronger and stronger every day.

It is predicted to create landfall in or near Southern Louisiana or at the East Texas Coastline. According to the weather forecast reporters, the storm could be of category two and would be one of the biggest hurricanes. It is suspected to hit these areas on Wednesday.

As Tropical Storm Laura continues to gain strength and travels towards the East Coastline, the NWS New Orleans alerts the residents all around the area to be ready for a very strong hurricane. And also that they should be prepared for the strongest storm to hit them.

They also reported that Marco has gotten weal while Laura is going to approach Gulf by the night and will become strong after that and will turn into a hurricane on Tuesday before reaching East Texas Coastline or Mississipi river on Wednesday. Meanwhile, many forecasts have alerted of landfall near the Florida panhandle.

LOUISIANA GOVERNOR, BEL EDWARDS REQUESTED RESIDENTS TO BE PREPARED IN HIS INTERVIEW WITH ‘WWNO’:

In a recent interview, the Governor of Louisiana, Bel Edwards requested residents to be prepared and do as much as they can to stay safe in a day that is left because the next day a very strong hurricane is coming their way. He also alerted residents that they should expect the storm to bring heavy rain, coastal floods, and dangerous tornadoes along with it.

He further said that these instructions are not only for the people who live in that area but also for those who live outside or around that area. He is just doing his utmost to alert people of the climatic disaster beforehand.

Edwards’ Statement:

In his interview with WWNO, Edwards made a statement saying ‘I just want everyone to be prepared of the strongest storm that is coming their way and all of you should understand this critical situation and take advantage of the day you are left with to prepare for your safety’.

WDSU, AN NBC’s AFFILIATE REPORTED:

Storm Marco hit Louisiana’s Mississipi river around 6 p.m. with 40 mph wind speed and intensity while people were already fearing the Laura storm that is about to hit them. But it is now getting weaker, reported by NBC affiliate, WDSU.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE’S UPDATE ON STORM MARCO:

New Orleans, NWS gave an update on the latest condition and situation of the storm Marco, in which they said that the storm is more likely to hit small towns with more intensity but when it will pass from there to make its way to the coast of Louisiana, it will lose its severity and intensity and intensity and will not be dangerous anymore.

They also reported that heavy resin is expected in the areas of the North-Central Gulf on Monday night so people should be prepared for any type of situation and should try to protect themselves.

KEN GRAHAM, NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER DIRECTOR TALKS ABOUT THE STORM IN A PRESS BRIEFING:

Earlier today, the director of National Hurricane Center, Ken Graham told in a press briefing that Storm expected to become stronger after passing the waters of Gulf because it is suspected to pick power from the gulf water which will make it even stronger than before.

Furthermore, he said that Laura will bring flood in many areas of Louisiana, according to the new forecast, as Marco did in the previous week but it wasn’t on a large scale.

Most of the area of Florida panhandle, Georgia, and Southern Alabama is already drenched by the Marco. Storm Marco brought about 8-9 inches of rain in these areas and is expected to follow the same pattern on reaching Louisiana and Texas. While the Storm laura is expected to bring 4-8 inches of rain across the West-Central U.S. Gulf Coast, near the Texas and Louisiana border.

TROPICAL STORM LAURA’S PREDICTED IMPACT IN THE U.S.:

According to the latest forecast reports, Laura is entering Cuba and is about to hit the hottest waters of Cuba, which will make it more powerful. The storm already had 65 mph wind speed, and according to the findings, it will hit Texas and Louisiana as a hurricane of 110 mph.

Federal Forecasters’ Update:

Federal forecasters released a new update saying that storm Laura is suspected to be the strongest and show its true colors starting from Wednesday till Friday, and due to its powerful nature, it can result in flooding many areas as well as streams and rivers. The areas, Laura is expected to pass through include Florida keys, Cuba, Craig Key to Key West, Cayman Islands, and will spread to the west in the Dry Tortugas National Park.

HURRICANE CENTER’S EARLY WARNING ON STORM MARCO:

According to all the reports released earlier on Sunday, Hurricane Center said that Marco is approaching and there is big a threat due to the heavy rainfall it can bring with it which will result in 2-4 inches of accumulations in areas of northeast and North-Central Gulf Coast, on Tuesday.

But later on, on Monday, the Hurricane Center rejected all the previous news about the storm Marco saying that it is becoming weak with every passing day and is not dangerous anymore. This news was a big relief for the residents who were in fear because they were told that Marco can bring 2-4 feet of the coastal flood, in Louisiana and Mississipi.

Another downside of this situation is that that country is already going through a pandemic, Coronavirus, so there are not enough resources and space to deal with another disastrous situation like this.

EDWARDS ADDRESSED THE RESIDENTS OF LOUISIANA AND MISSISSIPI, ON SUNDAY:

The Governor of Louisiana, Edwards spoke to the residents saying that ‘they are on their own for the first 72-hours, because this storm came right after the other one and they do not have enough helicopter and resources, for now, to rescue that much people so just try to help yourself and look out for others as much as you can until we arrange the stuff to rescue people. It would be of great help to you and us as well’.

These severe climate changes are predicted to be the result of an increasing number of hurricanes in the Atlantic and are creating more destruction every day.
