A teen in Lake Village, Arkansas recently received a heartbreaking wake-up call after her racist father launched a vicious verbal assault against her for allowing a black man to take her to the prom.
Over recent years, Anna Hayes and her father had not spent much time together following her parent’s divorce. However, according to Buzzfeed, Anna, who now lives with her mother, was still shocked by what her father had to say to her after he saw a photo of Anna and her black prom date.
However, according to Buzzfeed, Anna, who has lived with her mother since the divorce, was still shocked by what her father had to say to her after he saw a photo of Anna and her black prom date.
“We are done,” her father texted her according to the screen captures posted on Facebook. “I won’t be coming to your graduation. Nor will I pay for your college. Go live with the N***er [sic].”
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” she told her father.
“Shut the f*ck up you have no right to talk to me anymore,” he continued. “Go live with the F*CKIN N***ers. Your pictures are already off my walls. You can go to hell. What the F*ck is wrong with you? I’m canceling your phone and your insurance we are done. You want to mingle with Subhumans I’ll treat your accordingly.”

Hayes told Buzzfeed that her racist father was always open about his bigotry ever since she was a child. “But it never really occurred to me what it exactly meant to be racist, when you’re a child you look at the world completely different,” she said on Facebook.
To make matters worse, Hayes’ half-sister on her mother’s side is biracial, making her dad’s remarks that much more hurtful.
“He has told me that if I ever dated a black guy that I will and would be dead to him,” she continued. “I stood my ground for what I believe in. He has called me several horrible things before.”
Hayes said that she could never understand how anyone could ever hate someone they don’t know based solely on the color of their skin.
Just looking at this picture, it’s hard to imagine how any father could hold so much hatred in his heart as to disown someone who should be the most precious woman in his life.
Sadly, even in 2017, that’s the America we continue to live in.
Thankfully, more evolved young people like Anna are refusing to wear the shackles of intolerance that keep parents like her racist father chained to their ignorance.
