Like any good mom, Heather Boyer just wants her daughter to be happy. It’s pretty much all any of us can hope for as parents, especially once our kids start growing up. As long as they’re happy, you can feel assured about life. That policy also extends (rightly so) for anyone your child might choose to love.
Boyer’s daughter recently changed her profile picture on Facebook to a photo with her new boyfriend, who happens to be black.
Almost immediately, Boyer got a text message from someone asking if she knew her daughter was dating “a black boy.”
Boyer took to Facebook to explain her outrage with the situation.
Boyer’s post went viral in a huge way and other people shared their own personal stories of interracial love.
And this last one is really great.
And others were surprised that people are still so narrow-minded in this day and age.
Boyer was touched by the huge response.
It’s 2019, people. Get with the times!
