It's sad how this father hurled racial slurs at his daughter

Posted by Akila, 09 May

When high school senior Anna Hayes attended prom with a black boy, Phillip Freeman, the father went berserk, to say the least. He was furious and went to the extent of telling his daughter "your dead to me".

Anna and Freeman had a fantastic time at prom as per her tweet. The pair just looked adorable. Unfortunately, her choice of date was a bitter pill for her father to swallow. He went on a racist tirade on seeing the tweet of she and a black boy.

What followed was an exchange of text messages between father and daughter. He wrote:

“We are done. I won't be coming to your graduation. Nor will I pay for your college. Go live with the n***ers". And after Anna pointed out that his father was being super racist, he didn't even deny it saying:

“Yes I am your dead to me.” The father even went to the extent of referring to this black boy as "subhuman". He even went vulgar on her, calling his own daughter a F**king wh*re!

Ever since she moved in with her mother as a teenager, Anna and her father have been having an estranged relationship. Her parents got divorced when she was younger. Growing up, she admits in an interview with BuzzFeed News that her father has always been openly racist.

“He has told me that if I ever dated a black guy that I will and would be dead to him,” she told BuzzFeed. “I stood my ground for what I believe in. He has called me several horrible things before.”

The messages her father sent her really hurt her. She showed them to Freeman who in turn uploaded them on Facebook.

The post has since gone viral. People have shown disgust at his father's racist tirade:

” I cannot believe someone would cut off their own daughter just bc they went to prom with a person of different race. This really upsets me.”

“People tend not to see racism actually exist until it affects them, hence all the ‘I can’t believe we’re still going through this’ post.”

“I have legitimately never heard someone, outside of a documentary, refer to a different race as subhuman. #heartbroken”

All Anna wanted from the post of for the world to see sadly, in 2017, racism is still very much alive!
