This Teen's Dad Told Her She Was Dead To Him For Going To Prom With A Black Friend

Quote:
Anna Hayes is a high school senior from a small town in southern Arkansas called Lake Village. She told BuzzFeed News that racism is a big issue in her community.

Unfortunately, Anna said that bigotry extends to her own family. Her father has been openly racist as long as she can remember "for unknown reasons," she said...

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

She's better off without him in her life: toxic dad

Sometimes you just have to recognize relatives you need to cut off contact with, because there is nothing you can do to change them and all they can do is make your life miserable.
