Sunday, May 24, 2020 – A Kenyan woman, who has been living with her white boyfriend’s parents in Canada during the lockdown occasioned by the COVID19 pandemic, is heartbroken and devastated after she was racially abused by the boyfriend’s parents.
The 23-year old lady decided to seek advice on Reddit’s Relationship Advice forum after she overheard the boyfriend’s parents making racial remarks behind her back.
She says she’s confused and doesn’t know whether she should end the relationship.
“When I was walking down the stairs, I heard his mother (still at the kitchen table) mention my name, so being noisy, I stopped and listen.”
“They said I was nice and I was happy to hear that, but then his father said ‘it’s a shame she’s a n***** though’.”
“As long as he doesn’t marry her, it’s fine. And he won’t, he knows we would be disappointed.” The mother added.
“I didn’t know how to feel, and I still don’t.”
“I’m lucky enough to have never dealt with this kind of racism, so I’m a bit lost on what to do.”
“What his mother said implies my bf knows his parents are not happy with him being with me.”
“Is this why he’s waited so long to introduce them to me?”
The lady who did not reveal her identity said that they have been dating for a year but he hadn’t introduced her to his parents.
She just met his parents after they decided to spend lockdown in his hometown after both of their jobs were closed.
Her post elicited mixed reactions but the majority of people advised her to end the relationship.
