Allie Dowdle is making news after telling the world (via the internet,) that she was cut off by her parents after she started dating Michael Swift. Allie’s father, Bill Dowdle said in an interview that his daughter had secretly engaged in a relationship with Swift, a black soccer player.
Dowdle, who resides 30 miles east of Memphis, set up a gofundme page in an effort to capitalize on defying her parent’s wishes. It’s titled, “Allie’s Tuition – Say No to Racism.” The page has since raised $10,650 on a goal of $10,000.

Dowdle writes that her father has said he will not pay for his daughter to go to college as long as she remains her with boyfriend, Michael. Dowdle writes, “My dad did not give me an option: he told me that I was not allowed to see Michael ever again. Why? Strictly because of skin color. It wasn’t a quiet “no,” either. I’ll never forget the yelling my parents did, when they expressed how disappointed they were in me, that I could do so much better. I did not know what to do. I couldn’t comprehend how someone could be seen as less because of pigment. I still can’t comprehend it, and I never will be able to.” In an interview with the New York Daily News, Bill Dowdle said it’s not his “preference” that his daughter is dating a black man. He added there are “issues” in the South with interracial dating. Bill Dowdle continued that his problem was that his daughter had started dating Michael in secret. He says that his daughter’s allegations of racism are “a justification and gave her the moral high ground.” h/t heavy
Bill Dowdle also believes his daughter is spoiled and that it has become “obvious that she needed to go out in the world and grow up.” He concluded by saying that he and his wife are concentrating on his daughter’s high school graduation this spring.
