According to Allie Dowdle, her parents refused to give her any more money since they didn’t approve of the relationship. “As I am 18, my parents have decided to no longer support my future, draining me of all my resources,” Allie said on her GoFundMe page. 18-year-father old’s has disputed that the issue is ra-cial.
Allie claims she and Michael Swift dated for a year after first notifying her parents, but the relationship ended before Christmas when Michael approached her mom and dad again.
She claims that following that chat, her parents cut her off and she no longer has access to her own money, car, or phone, and she can no longer afford to pay for her schooling. “My father did not give me a choice: he told me I would never see Michael again,” she recalls. “Why? Strictly according to skin color. It wasn’t a subdued ‘no.’ “I’ll never forget my parents’ ranting when they showed their disappointment in me, saying that I could do so much better. “I was at a loss for what to do. I couldn’t see how someone could be perceived as inferior because of their skin color i still don’t understand it, and I probably never will.
“How could my feelings for another individual be tainted by his race?” “And how does it make me unworthy of a future I’ve fo-ught so hard to achieve?” “I’ve gone to the public for help since my parents have labeled me, their own daughter, as unworthy of their time and money.” Bill Dowdle claims that his daughter’s remarks are a “justification” for her behavior and that he and his wife would welcome whomever his daughter dated.
However, he said there were “problems” with multiracial relationships in the South of America, and that he had cut his daughter off because she had secretly begun dating bl-ack student Michael Swift.
He told the New York Daily News, “She’s spoilt and it became evident that she needed to go out in the world and grow up.” On the student’s GoFundMe website and not everyone has been supportive.
Susan Martin expressed herself as follows: “It’s absurd to date a bl-ack man while sending a rich white girl to college who can’t find work because her parents took a-way her vehicle. Take the bus to your college.” Meanwhile, Marissa Kizer penned the following: “Fi-ghting ra-cism does not include sending a white girl from a middle-class family to college. In fact, I think it’s fairly discriminatory to expect to be exempt from job, school debt, and other obligations because you’re dating a bl-ack person.”
