Father in Biracial Relationship Accused of Kidnapping His Own Children

Posted by   + Show Post

by 

Joseph took his three girls to Walmart recently to cash a check, but he got more than he asked for upon leaving, and we don’t mean he scored extra cash. After Joseph left the store and picked up his wife Keana, the family arrived back at home to find a cop car waiting.

"He asks us very sincerely, ‘Hey, I was sent here by Walmart security. I just need to make sure that the children that you have are your own,’” Joseph told FOC 5 News.

Joseph is white, Keana is black, and their three girls look more like their mom than their dad.

"Well, the customer was concerned because they saw the children with your husband and he didn't think that they fit," Keana said she was told. "And I said, ‘What do you mean by they don't fit?’ And I was trying to get [the officer] to say it. And she says, ‘Well, they just don't match up.’”

The couple has been married for 10 years and has a 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old twin girls. They say they have experienced their fair share of racial insults before, but this accusation that their kids were stolen by their own father takes the cake.

Walmart issued a statement in which they claim to be looking into the situation, but Joseph and Keana say they’ve already decided never to shop at Walmart again.

surprisedI don't even know what to say.  I can't believe people are this dumb.  REALLY!!!!  I thought we have come along way but this really proves there is still stupid out there.  I would be suing the heck out of Walmart and that police station for even coming to my door asking such a dumb question. 

Makes you wonder what Walmart said to the police to make them go.  Had to have been more then I think these children were kidnapped or even they were of a different race.  And if that was all Walmart said how uneducated the police station or cops were to go to their house.  Don't you have more serious crimes to fight....ugh!!!!

Maybe cause the dad is a older white man? Which isn't as common as white women with a black man

I had someone ask where I adopted my daughter from before. Another asked my mom how my husband and I had such a dark skinned daughter. (He adopted her)

People are ridiculous.
