  1. I would not be surprised if the boyfriend exes or family put a hit out her and him because of the interracial offspring and subsequent future family unit they could have been.
    Think about its been happening since the 1650s and it still happens today. Hell! Some of the founding fathers had children with their slaves. And yet some societies were in denial until DNA proved otherwise as late as 2013. That is five years ago.
