The fact that Rachel Dolezal and Jessica Krug were able to prosper as much as they did with no pushback should confirm everything dark skin black women say about colorism. But y'all will continue to stay out here stupid.— Lexx (@LexxMoves) September 3, 2020

She deleted her Tinder so I can't show y'all, and I know none of y'all will believe this actually happened, but I matched with Jessica Krug -- the white woman pretending to be Black -- on Tinder a couple years back and she went in on me for not caring about Black people enough.— Ja'han Jones (@_Jahan) September 3, 2020
4. Where's the lie?

When Jessica Krug gets her book deal and is on the talk show circuit, remember this tweet. White women continually harm our communities and are rewarded for their efforts.— Leslie Mac (@LeslieMac) September 3, 2020

Many are asking themselves how #JessicaKrug managed to fool anyone into believing she was Afro Latina. Well, let me tell you: we were both fellows at the Schomburg and I suppose she fooled me. (a thread 🧵)— Yarimar Bonilla 👩🏾💻 (@yarimarbonilla) September 3, 2020

Let me know when y’all ready to acknowledge that Jessica Krug didn’t receive advantages because she was ✌🏾black✌🏾, but because of her proximity to whiteness.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 4, 2020

The only reason Jessica Krug finally admitted to this lie is bec on Aug 26th one very brave very BLACK Latina junior scholar approached two senior Black Latina scholars & trusted them enough to do the research & back her up. Those two scholars made phone calls & reached out to...— Dr. YoFiggy (@DrYoFiggy) September 3, 2020

I am VERY TIRED of white people blaming mental illness as to why they did something racist. As someone who recently had to put their spouse in a mental health facility, MENTAL ILLNESS DOES NOT CAUSE OR HEIGHTEN RACISM. STOP SHIFTING BLAME JESSICA KRUG.— Yolanda Machado (@SassyMamainLA) September 3, 2020

A lot of white women have a preoccupation with experiencing the life of women who are othered. Rather than let these women speak for themselves, white women would rather cosplay oppression instead. #JessicaKrug this is why I made this skit of #SallyInHR https://t.co/hBM9cWQo9R— machine gun Kele (@kelechnekoff) September 4, 2020

so heyyyy, with the new "i'm a white woman pretending to be black" thing (google Jessica Krug), we're gonna get another round of "if being transgender is okay, why can't you switch races???" questions from ignorant whites.— Mx. Dianna E. Anderson (@diannaeanderson) September 3, 2020
Let me try to answer that?
