A father’s loving gesture has gone viral after the mother’s outrageous reaction.
Black dad Nick Harris shared screenshots of a racist text conversation with his baby’s mother, who happens to be white.
Harris had taken their young daughter to get her hair cornrowed – something that a lot of black and mixed race kids do on a regular basis.
The mother, identified only as “Babymom,” responded by using racist language in the texts.
She told her baby daddy that she did not want her daughter to have an “ugly black hairstyle.”
The screenshots from Harris’s baby momma are pretty disgusting and she seems to be unaware that her daughter is in fact biracial – and that she slept with a black man to make her.
Throughout the back and forth Nick seems to stay totally calm, despite the verbal abuse she hurls at him.
“She looks black and she’s not!” writes the mother.
Nick made the simple, solid point that his daughter is biracial and her mother should be able to love all of her.
“It’s crazy that you can’t accept the ‘black’ half of our child,” he wrote.
“She’s not more white or more black. She’s mixed, a beautiful mixed baby whose hair looks great in many different styles.”
The conversation unfortunately continues, with the mother arguing that the hairdresser probably “hurt her baby.”
She threatens to slap Harris, calls him a “f**kin idiot,” and says that she would prefer her daughter’s hair in a “French braid.”
“It truly amazes me that you hate half your daughter,” writes Nick.
Me too. Wow. I hope that now this post has gone viral this racist mom can be shamed into seeking educating herself – if not for her sake but for her young daughter.
