If you think it’s wrong for inter-racial dating, there’s a Mississippi mom who’s got some choice words for you.
In Houston, Mississippi, Heather Boyer’s teen daughter had just changed her profile picture on her Facebook page to show her and her boyfriend… and just a few minutes after that, Heather received a text from a friend that asked, “I didn’t know your daughter was dating a black boy. Did you?”
Well, that got Heather to thinking, and she thought about it all day before finally responding to it on Facebook.
This is what she wrote: 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?”
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. Every Sunday. 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? Absolutely not.
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.”
Heather’s post quickly went viral. There were nearly 155,000 people to make positive comments on it. And it has received well more than a million likes and loves.

And I’m very proud to say that many in my family and several of my friends… were part of those likes and loves.
