I Thought Her Response to the Question About Her Daughter Going Out With a “black Boy” Was Outstanding.
“Today my daughter changed her profile picture.
After maybe 5 minutes I get a text:
‘I didn’t know she was dating a black boy, did you?’”
This post by Heather Boyer has gone viral.
I thought her response to the question about her daughter going out with a “black boy” was outstanding.
Lets just say if either of my daughters could find a “black boy” like him I’d be incredibly proud.
Here’s the rest of what she wrote.
I particularly like her last line:
It took me all day to think up a response, which I didn’t send personally but thought I would share for anyone else that “may not know”
Yes in fact I did know, but the color of his skin doesn’t define who he is.
What does define who is he is how he treats my daughter.
I see my daughter dating a boy that comes to my house and shows me nothing but respect (a big deal in my book).
It’s always Yes Ma’am, No Ma’am, we talk about football and baseball, he tells me bye when he leaves, and has not once shown me a lack of manners or respect.
I see my daughter dating a boy who treats her good. He takes her on dates, to ballgames, out to eat.
Not to a club or partying on the weekends.
I see my daughter dating a boy who takes her to church with him.
He plays in the band, she sits with his family.
How many young men these days make church a priority?
None of the others have.
He doesn’t hit her, cuss her, lie to her, or make her cry.
Would I rather her date a white boy that did, to keep from her dating another race?
So that’s my response to the question I was asked. And I know people have their own opinion, but at the end of the day, the fact that my daughter has someone that loves her and treats her like a queen makes me happy.
That’s something I’ve never had in my life and I’m glad she does.
No wonder her daughter wants to go out with him.
As I said at the top, I can only hope that my two daughters can find someone like him.
