His Bullying Girlfriend Made a Shocking Racist Remark to a Little Girl, “You Will Never Be Rich Because You Are Black!”

A young man sparked outrage on Reddit after he told his girlfriend she needed to learn when to shut the **** up. But the context of the situation is what really got blood boiling. Here is the full story.

His Family Wanted To Meet His Girlfriend

OP is a 24-year-old black man who has been dating his 23-year-old white girlfriend for about five months.

Every other month, OP’s grandmother hosts a big family dinner at her house. Recently, she has been prodding OP to bring his girlfriend to one of the get-togethers so that everyone could meet her.

With a few months under their belt, OP agreed it was time, so he and his girlfriend headed to one of his grandmother’s parties.

Everything was going fine, and OP’s girlfriend was getting along well with his family. After they’d been there awhile, OP decided to jump into a Monopoly game with his 7-year-old niece and some of the other kids in the family.

“You Will Never Be Rich Because You Are Black!”

OP’s girlfriend tagged along to watch the kids and her boyfriend play. He was pretty happy about the situation because he adores his niece and thought it was great to have her and his girlfriend together.

At some point during the Monopoly game, one of the boys playing said that he was trying to collect all the $500 bills so he could be rich.

That’s when OP’s niece shocked everyone by saying that she could never be rich because she was black, only she used a racial epithet. OP couldn’t believe his ears!

So OP asked his niece where she had heard that nonsense, and she said someone at school had told her. During career day, the niece had said she wanted to be a rich president, and a bully cut her down right away.

The Little Girl Was Upset and Started Crying

Of course, OP told his niece that wasn’t true and hugged her. But the little girl was upset and started crying.

That’s when OP’s girlfriend jumped in and said that the kid at school wasn’t trying to be mean but was probably just confused. She even told his niece that the best thing to do was to forgive the bully.

OP told his girlfriend that she should stop trying to justify the racist behavior of the kid at school, but she wasn’t done.

OP’s girlfriend shushed him and then went on to tell his niece that she should be nice to all the kids at school. Her parting line of advice was that kindness goes both ways.

He Was So Angry He Could Hardly See Straight

That was the last straw for OP, and he pulled his girlfriend aside to have a word with her. He told her she needed to learn when to shut the **** up.

That made his girlfriend angry, but she wasn’t entirely done. She told OP that statistics backed up her position and tried to make an argument to justify what she had said.

At that point, OP could hardly see straight and told his girlfriend to leave his grandmother’s house. The girl had driven him there, but he said he’d get a ride home with his brother.

The following day, tensions were still high between OP and his girlfriend, and her family got in on the act. Her sisters blew up his phone, calling him abusive and controlling.

And Needed To Stop His Girlfriend’s Outrageous Speech

OP admits that his words were harsh, but he felt he needed to stop his girlfriend’s outrageous and hurtful speech. She was making his niece feel worse than she already did; even worse, she was supporting racist behavior.

Now OP doesn’t know if he can be in a relationship with a woman who would speak and act like his girlfriend did.

Redditors overwhelmingly support OP’s actions; many think he showed great restraint in handling the situation.

“She Needs To Grow Up!”

Many commenters say that his girlfriend needs to grow up, and some don’t know if the relationship has any hopes of lasting.

Several of them point out that it’s never OK to downplay racism and think that OP is in for a bumpy road at best if he stays with his girlfriend.
