To please her online “Asian” (Paki) boyfriend that she had never met in person, Phoebe darkened her skin and wore a headrag in the picture she sent him. Here’s the tragic story of what happened next.
A schoolgirl killed herself over fears she had put a racially offensive picture on the internet.
Phoebe Connop, 16, had been chatting regularly online to an Asian lad whom she called her boyfriend despite never having met him.
She then put a picture of herself on Instagram with her skin colour edited to look darker and a scarf wrapped around her head.
Phoebe, a talented gymnast, told friends she would have to look like that to get approval from the parents of her “boyfriend”.
But when the picture was spread around the net, Phoebe became worried about a backlash, an inquest heard on Friday. Detective Sergeant Katherine Tomkins told the coroner: “She was scared of what the reaction might be from the Asian community in her area.”
Phoebe’s dad Laurence, 53, who arrived home in Halesowen, West Midlands, to find his daughter hanged last month, said: “She was a lovely girl who would never want to cause offence to anyone.”
The unrelenting propaganda that white is not right and that white girls should be down with brown is mind-boggling in its frequency, volume, and intensity. The not yet fully formed mind of a child is going to be influenced by it.
In this surreal world in which all institutions preach the doctrine (subtly and sometimes not so subtly) that the white race should disappear from the earth. a teen might easily conclude that the only sin and the worst sin is racism, saying or doing something that a monkey might not like.
Our short-term goal as friends and parents of teens like Phoebe is to gently offer them whatever truth is within ourselves that might dissuade them from killing themselves. We shouldn’t have to do this, but forced diversity makes it an urgent task.
In the longer run, we must do two things. One is to create a healthier culture for white children. The second is to punish (((those))) who have created this sick world in which we exist.
