Anna admitted she didn’t know Phillip would share the texts, but she was glad he did. “It’s important for people to see that racism is very much alive.”
Anna lives with her mother and has been scarcely in contact with her father ever since the divorce. “He had always been openly racist around me when I was growing up in his household, 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 explained.
“He has told me that if I ever dated a black guy that I will and would be dead to him,” she said. “I stood my ground for what I believe in. He has called me several horrible things before.”
She also said that her mom had been ‘horrified and felt terrible’ but ‘there is nothing she can do’.
Anna further went on to say, “This just hurt more because I can not believe how anyone can hate someone they don’t even know because of their skin color.”
She posted a lengthy explanation on Facebook!
She explained that she is in a relationship with another boy. “This is not relevant to the situation at all, but some of you thought it was.”
The response to the racist rant has been unanimous horror.

@Og__Regg People are absolutely ignorant. There’s no need for so much hate.
