"He had always been openly racist around me when I was growing up in his household, but it never really occurred to me what it exactly meant to be racist, when you're a child you look at the world completely different," Hayes told Buzzfeed News."He has told me that if I ever dated a Black guy that I will and would be dead to him."
Hayes' father called her a "whore" and told her to "go live with n*****." Although Hayes does not have much of a relationship with her father, his words still very much upset her.
"This just hurt more because I can not believe how anyone can hate someone they don't even know because of their skin color," Hayes told Buzzfeed.
