My daughter is dating a girl
Bishop Vashti Murphy Mc Kenzie, the first female bishop of the AME Church, and her daughter Joi-Marie Mc Kenzie open up on their relationship, dating and their new books The Big Deal of Taking Small Steps to Move Closer to God and The Engagement Game.When Bishop Vashti Murphy Mc Kenzie, the first female bishop of the AME Church, and her daughter Joi-Marie Mc Kenzie, we surprised them with questions to ask one another.My mom began studying for her Bachelor’s degree when I was 2 so I spent most of my free time watching WWF and eating Doritos with my Dad for nearly a decade.
I called my Dad in early to December to break the news- I was bringing a guy home for the holidays. He told me that was not acceptable to him, he was disappointed in me, and there was no way I was bringing Aaron over. A week later my dad sent me a text saying he was opting out of my life. Here I was in an interracial relationship living naively (I guess) to the world and even my own family. Maybe this had to do with his North Carolina upbringing, his time spent in the Marines, or something in his life pre-Ashley? I was emotionally drained and therefore emotionally unavailable and I think it became obvious I wasn’t being honest. My legs were shaking under the table and my teeth were chattering as I explained everything.
The email contained conditions for us working things out beginning with “you have to agree not to engage in this kind of behavior again” meaning that I would have to agree not to date black guys.
Your parents are supposed to be the only people you can count on to love you unconditionally.
About two weeks later I asked him to come over and talk.
After a few hours of intense conversation he ultimately decided that this relationship was not for him.
