My daughter is dating a black man
What you gonna do when the Hulkster runs wildly racist on you?
She’s beginning to go through puberty, and has started noticing boys.Gene and Terri married three years later, and had two boys, now 28 and 25, but her parents have never met them.Gene died unexpectedly of pancreatic cancer in 2008, but not even then did anyone in her family reach out to her.“WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.” Hogan followed with a boiler-plate apology later Friday morning.“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation.My concern is that she does not seem to find African American boys attractive.

Upshaw said she’s actually seen her parents in Lake Tahoe, but there’s nothing but icy disdain from them.
“They have a house in Tahoe in the same area as mine,” she said.
Upshaw was disowned by her San Francisco family — the owners of the city’s iconic Tadich Grill — because she fell in love with a black man. Upshaw, 55, decided to speak out after she found that her family was opening a Tadich Grill in Washington, where she now lives. Her family hasn’t spoken to her in over three decades. You just don’t date somebody who is black or a different race.
Her father, Steve Buich, who ran Tadich’s back in the 60s, cut her out of the family the day in 1983 when she told her parents that she’d fallen in love with Raiders offensive lineman Gene Upshaw. That’s just how it was laid out.” “This is unacceptable,” she recalls her father telling her.
And, she announced, she’d decided to follow him to Washington, where he was starting a job as executive director of the NFL Players Association. “You change your name and you leave.” And that was the end.
