Nearly 50 years after the landmark Supreme Court decision, Loving vs. Virginia, that legitimized interracial marriages, A Texas teenager has been disowned and fully renounced by her own father because she chooses to date a black boy named Nike.
Stephanie Hicks, 19, of Keller, Texas posted the vile, revolting letter that her own father wrote to her onto Twitter in which he calls interracial relationships “vulgar” and “reprehensible” and vows to never speak to her again if she continues the relationship. She would also have to assume a new identity and change her name because the father said he would have no other affiliation with her for the rest of her life.
Check out what this so-called “Christian father” said to his own daughter:
“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.”
“If you choose this black kid over your parents fill [suitcases] up and leave my house…Change your name as soon as possible, because I won’t have any association with you. Ever.”
“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.”
