Girl's Note Explaining To Friend Why She Can't Go To Her Birthday Goes Viral

Christopher Jones was a little heartbroken to see his 10-year-old daughter endure racism.

His daughter, Harmony Jones, received a letter from her friend saying that her father wouldn’t let her attend Harmony’s party because she’s black.

“Maybe I will not be able to go to your birthday sleepover because my dad will not let me go because you are black,” the letter read, PIX 11 reports.

He doesn’t blame the friend and says the fault lies with her father.

“It angered me a little bit, it hurt me that my 10-year-old girl had to deal with this, and I myself never thought I would have to deal with this,” said Jones.

Civil rights activist Lasimba Gray called the moment regrettable, but teachable.

“Every child has a blank canvas when they come into this world,” said Gray.

He said it’s up to parents whether or not they continue to teach racism and that a person’s character can't be judged by the color of their skin.

“When parents run across racism that’s a good moment to teach tolerance, but more than that to teach understanding to appreciate each other and celebrate our diversity,” Gray said.

“I guess us as parents need to be more aware and conscious about what we teach our children,” said Jones.
