The year is 2017. Most people believe that racism is no longer an issue, but that is entirely wrong. Racism is still present even in this modern world, and here is an example of that.
Stephanie Hicks, who lives in Dallas, posted a letter from her racist father last year. In case you are wondering why his father is being called racist, he disowned her because Stephanie had a black boyfriend.
But the good news is even after all the controversies, they are together and now married.
1. This letter was posted by Stephanie Hicks on Twitter.
As you can see, Stephanie’s dad came to know that Stephanie is in a relationship with a black guy, so he disowned her and wanted her to change her name since she no longer wanted to stay in any relationship with Stephanie.
2. Some people on Twitter supported her father’s decision.
Several individuals supported her dad even though the decision was racist and made rude comments since Stephanie was in a relationship with a black guy.
These responses are almost as disgusting as the letter itself 😷 praying for you both @st3phanie_hicks @itsnikeee_fr pic.twitter.com/42BZL2PMgM

4. Some people were in favor of Stephanie.
Some of them ultimately supported Stephanie’s decision and hoped that they remain a couple for the rest of their lives.
@itsnikeee_fr @st3phanie_hicks Ridiculous that people even bring up the “when y’all break up” shit. Not the point. The point is intolerance.
