Actually, tell it to Ashley Miller’s dad, who disowned her for dating outside her race. He apparently didn’t get the memo about racism being a thing of the past. A scene with two lovers holding hands in which there is some contrast in skin tone is, to him, so intolerable that he must cut his daughter out of his life. Of course, he’s a coward as well as a racist, so he made his wife tell his daughter that he is willing to give her up over the skin color of her beau.
Racism is still a reality. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s not. Don’t tell yourself that lie.
I hope Ashley’s father has a photo like this one.
I hope it makes him weep. I hope it will make him think, and I hope it will eventually make him come to some different conclusions.
