Father renounces daughter in a heartbreaking letter for dating a black man
It was a depressing tweet - A 19-year-old white woman’s post of a photo of a racist letter from her father, renouncing her for dating a black man; threatening to leave her homeless if she doesn't dump her boyfriend. Her tweet read: "sad that it's 2016 and skin colour still matters"
Stephanie Hicks from Keller, Texas has been dating this guy for a some weeks now.
Much as fathers being against their daughters' or sons' isn't something new, this level of racial hate takes it to another level... calling interracial relationships 'despicable', 'vulgar' and 'reprehensible'. And that's just what we can read. I dont even want to imagine the contents under the red marker...

This one I cannot paraphrase… Read for yourself:
This isn't easy, but you haven't made it easy.
Over the last several years, you've turned on everything that we tried to instill from childhood. You're nowhere near the daughter I thought you would be at this point, and I'm deeply broken-hearted.
You treat both of us with contempt. You've been using us for money, while disrespecting us in every way. You dress like a street walker, and you sulk when we take you to church. You have no respect for morals, and have abandoned any sense of righteousness.
Yes, we had this discussion - sort of - a while back. At that time, I hoped I would eventually take the high road and come to accept an interracial relationship. The truth is that I'm human, and I make choices of my own. 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.
Mistakes can be forgiven, but you have willingly and consciously chosen a lifestyle of sickening choices, and I won't tolerate it. You have one final opportunity. Either end your relationship with 'Nike', or face the consequences. There are 3 suitcases emptied and waiting. If you choose this black kid over your parents, then fill them up and leave my house. Take my information out of your phone, and DO NOT attempt to contact me again, the rest of your life. Change your name as soon as possible, because I won't have any association with you. Ever.
Later on twitter, Stephanie's boyfriend wrote: "My girl's dad wrote that letter and once I read it I felt as though the mature thing to do was to end the relationship, I'm not about to see my girl homeless. However Stephanie didn't welcome the break-up. They decided to tell their parents they had broken up only for her twitter post to go viral. Now the family knows they are still together.
Whether the father lived up to the threat isn't known.
Doesn’t this sadden you? This father should watch Dave Harris' poem, 'Black Boyfriend'. And if you ask me, that aint enough for a person with such hatred even against their own child.
