Father in Biracial Relationship Accused of Kidnapping His Own Children

Posted by   + Show Post

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.

i had people ask me where i adopted my kids from cause they love their skin color. i always say "my uterus". i have actually had people ask me where that country is.

I'm sorry Mama! Teenager stage is terrible. And no matter how much you punish for attitude, nothing works. We've tried everything for Madelyn. I think its just her feisty personality. I wish you luck and best wishes

That's just stupid.  We're TTC #1 but I'm white and my husband is black so this something I worry about even though we don't have kids yet.

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.

 why apparently that teacher didn't understand the complexaties of genetics

Quoting heydooney:

My mom is the only dark-haired child in a family of 9 kids with blond parents. Her high school biology teacher told her she must be adopted because it wasn't possible for her parents to be her parents.

No, and this was back in the 70's.
