In an article published on medium,she wrote;”To an escalating degree over my adult life, I have eschewed my lived experience as a white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City under various assumed identities within a Blackness that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness,”
“doing so is the very epitome of violence, of thievery and appropriation, of the myriad ways in which non-Black people continue to use and abuse Black identities and cultures.”
“I am not a culture vulture,” she wrote. “I am a culture leech.”
One of her student,Anmol Goraya shared her disappointment.
“From the moment she came into the classroom, I was in awe of her,” Goraya said. “And I’m just shocked that it was such a complete lie.” “It was the last thing on my mind to think she was lying. I would think I had the details confused,” she said.
