In what may be the most depressing piece of correspondence you'll see today, a 19-year-old white woman tweeted a photo of a racist letter from her dad that disowns her for being in a relationship with a black person. She redacted some of the sentences before uploading the photo, but you'll get the awful gist:
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.
The couple has apparently been together for at least a couple of weeks; the girl's boyfriend tweeted this earlier this month:
They look so happy there. This is a horrible thing to have happened to them.
