A Texas girl, Stephanie Hicks, has publicly put her racist father to shame after he sent her a letter saying her family would leave her homeless and never speak to her again if she failed to quit her relationship with her black boyfriend.
The father, who claimed to be a Christian, gave her an ultimatum saying there were three empty suitcases waiting for her belongings to be packed in if she remained with her partner, called Nike.
What a Christian!
Stephanie , thought to be 19, uploaded a snap of the extremely unpleasant letter to Twitter commenting ‘sad that it’s 2016 and skin colour still matters’, tagging her boyfriend. Below is a picture of the letter.
This isn’t easy, but you haven’t made it easy.
Over the last several years, you’ve turned on everything that we tried to instill from childhood. You’re nowhere near the daughter I thought you would be at this point, and I’m deeply broken-hearted.
You treat both of us with contempt. You’ve been using us for money, while disrespecting us in every way. You dress like a street walker, and you sulk when we take you to church. You have no respect for morals, and have abandoned any sense of righteousness.
Yes, we had this discussion – sort of – a while back. At that time, I hoped I would eventually take the high road and come to accept an interracial relationship. The truth is that I’m human, and I make choices of my own. While it may not be anti-biblical, I know I will never accept it, and I’ll never forgive you. My belief is that interracial relationships are despicable. Vulgar and reprehensible. There’s nothing worse than a half-black, and I’m crushed that my own daughter has entered into such a disgusting relationship.’
Mistakes can be forgiven, but you have willingly and consciously chosen a lifestyle of sickening choices, and I won’t tolerate it. You have one final opportunity. Either end your relationship with Nike, or face the consequences. There are three suitcases emptied and waiting. If you choose this black kid over your parents, then fill them up and leave my house. Take my information out of your phone, and DO NOT attempt to contact me again, the rest of your life. Change your name as soon as possible, because I won’t have any association with you. Ever.
Stephanie Hicks was met with overwhelming support and the post was re-tweeted more than 8,000 times and Favorited by 7,000 people. But she was also met with further abuse from racist users, and she has since deleted her account.
Stephanie Hicks’s boyfriend later added a post on his Twitter account, saying:
My girl’s dad wrote that letter and once I read it I felt as though the mature thing to do was to end the relationship, I’m not about to see my girl homeless.
But according to him, Stephanie didn’t want to split and instead told her parents they had broken up, but when the post of her letter went viral her family got to know they were still together.
It is not yet known if her father followed through with his threat.
It is very disgusting that in this age and time, people still discriminate against others based on the colour of their skin and it is even worse when such people claim to be Christians, hiding under religion while living a life of hate and superiority.
This goes a long way to expose the deception and the level of ‘fakeness’ in Christendom today where people sing ‘we are one and equal in Christ’ but in reality, they see themselves as better than others. This is probably what repulsed the young lady and made her choose to walk on a path extremely different from what her parents expected.
