Petition for a girl who says her father was shot and killed because of racism-Fiction!
Petition from Girl Who Says Her Parents Were Shot Because Her Father Was Black-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
This email claims to be from a 15 year old girl who says her parents were shot in a parade because her father was black. She says she's dedicated herself to fight racism and asks that people add their names to the email and forward it to others. The 100th person is supposed to send it to a particular email address.
The email includes no information about the place or time where this took place or to whom. We suspect it's not true, but if it is, sending lists of names will not help. The email address that is listed to send the names to is not working. Also, TruthOrFiction has had this posted for quite a while with no feedback from anyone claims it is true.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
Hi my name is Elise and my parents were shot in a parade because my Mom was white and my dad was black, but the sick part about it is that the guy who shot them was my uncle.
Can you guess why?
ya,b/c my dad was black.
At my parents funeral I promised them, myself, and God that I would erase racism.
I’m only15 but I can make a difference.
My parents got married because they were in love. They had me because they were in love, and they died because they were surrounded by hate.
Please help me stop racism.
Please sign here if you believe in stopping hate against different cultures, believes, and color.
The100th person please send it to silversandchik52. Her name is Caitlin and she’s doing this for me b/c I don’t have a screen name.
