After someone questioned the skin color of her daughter's boyfriend, Heather Boyer took to Facebook to give a profound response. What did she post? Find out.


In 2019, Heather Boyer was taken aback when she received a text regarding the color of her daughter's boyfriend's skin.

The message came in about five minutes after Boyer's daughter changed her profile picture.

The message read:

"I didn't know she was dating a black boy, did you?"

Reflecting on all the admirable qualities of the young man that went much further than skin deep, Boyer was at a loss for words for the better part of the day. Though the woman never ended up replying directly to the offender, she took to Facebook to share what would have been her response.



In the post's first paragraph, Boyer revealed that she knew her daughter's boyfriend was black. However, the young man was not defined by the color of his skin but by the way he treated Boyer's daughter.

According to the woman, her daughter's boyfriend often visited her home and had shown nothing but respect. He and Boyer would discuss football and baseball, and the former would talk to his girlfriend's mom in a manner she appreciated. Boyer also added:


"I see my daughter dating a boy who takes her to church with him every Sunday. He plays in the band; she sits with his family. How many young men these days make church a priority? None of the others have."

The proud mom further explained that the young man never hit, cussed, lied to, or made her daughter cry. For Boyer, she would have her child date a black man who was nice to her rather than a white man who was not, despite his skin color. In the concluding part, she wrote:

"So that's my response to the question I was asked. And I know people have their own opinion, but at the end of the day, the fact that my daughter has someone that loves her and treats her like a queen makes me happy."



In another story, two boys proved that a good relationship depends not on skin color after dressing up as twins on Twins Day at Magnolia School in Foley.

One of the little boys, Myles, had insisted that he and his schoolmate, Tanner looked exactly alike, despite their skin color, because they had the same hair and eyes.


After hearing her little boy's claims, Myles's mother, Britney Tankersley, reached out to Tanner's mom, Lakendra Watts, who saw no problem with the boys matching the following day.

So, Tankersley headed to Walmart and bought the boys matching outfits. The following morning, Myles wore his outfit and gave Tanner his set.

After the latter finished dressing up, his teacher took a photo and sent it to Tankersley. The woman was emotional when she saw the picture. In her words:

"I expected to see a child that looked just like Myles, but all I needed to do was look a little deeper. Outwardly, these children were different, but my son never saw that, which made me so proud."

Tankersley shared the picture on Facebook, and the post received over 200,000 likes and 48,000 comments and inspired several netizens.
