A white girl started a GoFundMe page claiming that her parents left her without any means of survival after they had found she dated a black guy.
In 3 days she collected $29,000!
Allie Dowdle, living in Memphis, is an 18 years old girl. About a year ago she started dating a black guy, and told her parents about it. She thought, her parents will be happy, but instead, she was yelled. Her parents said they were really disappointed and claimed that Allie ‘could do so much better.’
As soon as Allie turned 18 (and she was still dating Michael), her parents decided to punish her and left her on her own. They took all her personal savings, her car and phone. And now she is facing her college debt all by herself.
Allie Dowdle asked people for $10,000 to cover up her first year in college. And people were really responsive!
‘All of this because I love another human being, as I was taught to do. How could my love for another person be wrong because of his skin color? And why would that make me unworthy of a future I've worked so hard for?’ she writes on her GoFundMe page.
Funny thing, her father claims that the only issue he was worried about was the fact that his daughter dated someone in secret. He admitted that he was worried about “issues” that could stem from a biracial couple in the South, but still, he is aware that now that she is eighteen, he can’t control who she dates.
The decision not to pay for her college, he insisted, was to teach her independence because she had been spoiled and “it became obvious that she needed to go out in the world and grow up.”
Her claims that it was about the race of her boyfriend, he said, were “a justification and gave her the moral high ground.”
Was it a deception? Was the girl playing on our feelings and race issues? Or it’s her parents who are secret racists?
