One of the links in the article goes to The Hill, where they have this quote from the dad:
“I’m not saying there’s not hurdles to overcome. We all have hurdles to overcome. You know, as a quote-unquote rich, white, Christian male, people look at me a certain way. And it’s not always good. So, everybody has obstacles to overcome,” he also said, while adding he thinks President Trump has “done more for the black community than any president we’ve had in the last 20 years.”
Brava to this young woman, and to the University of Colorado, Boulder for helping her along her journey.
