Teen’s Dad Tells Her She’s Dead to Him After Going to Prom With Black Friend

Can you believe this happened in 2017?

In a society where racism is called out and combatted more and more often, it can be shocking when people are still blatantly biased against certain people based only on their skin color. It can be even more difficult when the racist is your own father.

Like any teenage girl, Anna Hayes was just looking to have fun — by taking a guy to prom. Unfortunately, her father had a problem with this, and all because the guy, Phillip Freeman, was black. His disapproval didn’t end there — Hayes’ dad went on a racist tirade you’d expect out of 1817, not 2017.
