WASHINGTON — George Washington University professor and writer Jessica Krug claimed to be a Black Latina woman for most of her career and was recently exposed as being a white Jewish woman.
Dr. Jeff Gardere spoke with the PIX11 Morning News Monday to break the sitaution down from a possible psychological standpoint.
George Washington University is investigating and said Krug will not be teaching her classes this semester.
A writer claiming to be Krug said in a blog post that she had lived most of her adult life "under various assumed identities within a Blackness that I had no right to claim."
The post caused a furor on social media.
