About a year ago, I told my parents that I’d started dating a boy named Michael, pictured with me above. Hoping to share him with my family, I showed my parents his picture, and the conversation was over before it even began. My dad did not give me an option: he told me that I was not allowed to see Michael ever again. Why? Strictly because of skin color. It wasn’t a quiet “no,” either. I’ll never forget the yelling my parents did, when they expressed how disappointed they were in me, that I could do so much better.
Her GFM – titled “Allie’s Tuition – Say No to Racism” – goes on to say her parents are “stripping me of all my resources including my personal savings, my car, my phone, and my education and leaving me on my own to pay for college” and that turning to the internet is her only option.
Meanwhile her father’s side is that he “decided to cut off her college money because she has been spoiled” and that “it became obvious that she needed to go out in the world and grow up”.
Public reaction is almost universal in its agreement with GOMIBLOGer notkept, who said ”They’re ALL a bunch of spoiled assholes.”
