Sometimes I just want to start this world all over again without the racist element and see what happens next.
You want the love of your parents and their blessings when you think of dating someone special. We all know there are some hiccups along the way, but things always work out even if it takes a long time.
From Daily Mail:
A young woman has publicly shamed her racist father after he sent a letter saying her family would leave her homeless and never speak to her again if she continued to date a black man.
Stephanie Hicks from Keller, Texas, shared the vile note on Twitter in which she was told she had ‘disrespected her family in every way’ by having a boyfriend with a different skin colour to her.
The dad, who claimed to be a Christian, gave her a final ultimatum – saying there were three empty suitcases waiting for her belongings to be packed in if she stayed with her partner, called Nike.
He wrote: ‘While it may not be anti-biblical, I know I will never accept it, and I’ll never forgive you. My belief is that interracial relationships are despicable. Vulgar and reprehensible.
‘There’s nothing worse than a half-black, and I’m crushed that my own daughter has entered into such a disgusting relationship.’
He went on to say that if he chose Nike ‘over her family’ he never wanted any contact with her again and asked her to change her name as he didn’t want to be associated with her.
Here’s the letter:
Stephanie received a lot of support from her friends and social media as her post was retweeted over 8,000 times and favorited by 7,000 people. But she also got abuse from hateful tweets that used racism. She has since deleted her account.
The more and more you want to get past this racism virus, it seems crazy that people want to be infected by it. I can’t stand racism and those who practice it. You might as well worship the devil if you use racism to break down relationships and cause problems on a small or large scale.
This father needs to find somewhere in his heart and love his daughter. He has to remember that his daughter will always remember what he dad did to her if he doesn’t fix it.
