Parents Complain Black Worker At Daycare Center Is ‘Too Dark’
Some unidentified parents complained in a racist letter about a daycare center’s black employee being “too dark” and scaring the kids with the color of her skin.
The Morning Call notes the letter was sent to the Bridge 2 Creative Learning Center in Whitehall, Pennsylvania.
According to Snopes.com, a fact-checking website, the letter is real and states:
Hello I am writing this as a concerned parent and friend!
So most of us noticed you have a black girl working for the daycare. Our problem is she’s too dark most of the kids is scared of her. I am only telling you this because some of us are planning to pull our kid form the daycare shes an eye sore. I see you’re trying to touch all of the nationalities but maybe hire a light skinned black she would blend more and not look like a “NANNY”. She’s not the first thing a child nor the parents want to see soon as they walk in the daycare. So the choice is yours! Choose wisely remember WE THE PARENTS PAY YOUR MORTAGE. I hope you make her aware shes not wanted. I’m sending her a copy as well. However if she needs a job Mcdonalds is always hiring her kind. So work your magic and make it disappear!!!
P.S. Just trying “TO MAKE YOUR DAYCARE GREAT AGAIN”
Dominique McKelley, owner of the daycare center, told the The Morning Call: “This is not OK. It’s gone too far — this hatred. Now you’re targeting a day care center?”
