A white Tennessee teenager set up a Go Fund Me page after her dad took away her car and threatened to not pay for college because she is dating a black man. Allie Dowdle from the town of Eads, 30 miles east of Memphis, set up the fundraising page on January 11. It’s titled, “Allie’s Tuition – Say No to Racism.” Since going online, the page has raised $10,650. The goal was $10,000. Dowdle writes that her father, Bill Dowdle, 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.”

According to Dowdle’s Go Fund Me page, she has a 4.0 GPA at Hutchison High School, a private school all-girl facility in Memphis. Dowdle also details a two month surgical fellowship she achieved at Regional One Health, a hospital in Tennessee.

Dowdle says her dad has taken away her phone, car and personal savings. In a statement to WMC Action News, a Go Fund Me spokesperson said:

With hundreds of thousands of campaigns, it’s not feasible for GoFundMe to investigate the claims stated by each Campaign Organizer.

Rather, we provide visitors with the tools to make an informed decision as to who they choose to support. While GoFundMe and its payment partners do provide a number of safeguards to deter fraud, we must insist that visitors follow the advice stated on each and every campaign. Only donate to people you personally know & trust.

That statement comes after Dowdle’s fundraising efforts have been met by skepticism by some Go Fund Me users. One commenter, Marissa Kizer, said, “Sending a white girl from a middle-class family to college is not fighting racism. In fact, expecting to avoid work, student loans, etc. and be treated like a hero for dating a black guy seems pretty racist to me.”

Dowdle is a soccer player at Hutchison High School. Her Max Preps page names her as the 37th best player in Tennessee.

  1. Disgusting that she would go to the media over something like this for what amounts to a temporary boyfriend. Does she think that this will win her parents over? Disgusting that she lowers herself to animal status sleeping with a monkey. Disgusting.

  2. If my daughter did what she did, it would not only kill all my love for her, but would probably kill me too….what the hell is this poor sick girl thinking?

    • Then your love is conditional for your daughter?? Whoa!! As a parent, I could NEVER love my child conditionally. I am more interested in my children’s character development, and the character of who they choose to bring into their lives. Dating within one’s own race can be fraught with problems and perils, as much as dating outside of one’s race, as assholes come in all sizes, shapes and colors, including those of one’s own race.

  3. She lives with / off her parents.. encouraging people to hurt their business won’t exactly help her’s hoping they kick her out though.

    • “Encouraging people to hurt their business,” really?? All she’s done is to refuse to keep their bigotry secret. This is about cause and effect. I applaud her for her courage . . . not easy to do as evidenced by this blog, and especially in the South.

      • no proof that what she says is true. all we know is they cut her off. she says because of race the parents say because she dated him secretly

      • I’m not talking about her doing that. I doubt she would do it, she still lives with/off them so she’s not probably not that dumb. (even though her choices of both dating blacks as well as making familiy affairs public, does make one wonder) I refer to the people in this very thread who are encouraging people to boycott or in other ways hurt their business.. that wouldn’t exactly help her as they’re the reason she still has a roof over her spoiled head.

  4. Bill is a Jr. His father is the one who owned the store and wrote the book. Get your research and facts correct before publishing.

    • Judging by your attitude, you probably never attended school long enough to learn that race makes up less than 1% of a human being’s DNA.

      • There are plenty of lethal conditions that are caused by a single gene.. So 1% (race is overall smaller than 1% genetic difference though) would be an immense amount of genetic difference. There are several different species that are alot less different than 1% from each other.

      • A study by by National Geographic shows that its 3% DNA difference among races, thats the difference between a Yugo and a Porsche, and your a rusty Yugo.

  5. what a scammer. her father sounds correct. shes spoiled. get a job, etc….gofundme should be for real emergencies but there are always dopes who will donate to any dopey cause.

  6. Parents both White and Black and especially Asians and Hispanics don’t want their children in interracial relationships, don’t make them racist, mean, thoughtless or hateful, just makes them doting parents…And its their money and can spend it in the manner they wish.
    What this daughter did was shameful and shows no class.

    • Rejecting someone solely for their race is wrong . . . parents may be overprotective at times, but there’s a discernable difference between racist bigotry and and being a doting parent. As far as it being “their money”, you are absolutely right, and they have no obligation to provide their daughter with a car or to send her to college. However, they need to economically provide for her until she graduates from high school, i.e. food, clothing and shelter, and assure that she attends school on a daily basis . . . to what degree they do this is their perogative . . . I have taken away privileges from my children for such things as being late for curfew, failing to do chores, low grades and cutting class, but NEVER for associating with someone of a different race. To do so would only perpetuate the bigotry that separates us from one another and results in the vituperative, ignorant comments expressed throughout this blog.

        • Sounds like a bunch or BS of the encouraging to date interacial. What does that say how dumb you are that you think its good. Statistics show white girls end up dead when in a interacial relationship. Whenever did you see a white guy kill his girl, usually they do when its tyrone and Cindy.

  7. ” Khloe Kardashian took up the issue on her app saying, “Like who the F cares anymore?! It’s so crazy because we’re all human beings capable of love so why does skin color have anything to do with it?”””

    Well dear, the violence, adulterous behavior, multiple marriages and divorces and confused and neglected kids might be some clue as to why race mixing is a problem,

    • Lt, Greyman, while no fan of the Kardashians, race hatred is a far bigger problem . . . and there are plenty of children who are neglected that are the products of same-race, adulterous, violent marriages.

    • Where are the pathetic interacials when she gets her bones broken from being thrown around of buried, they wont be commenting then, or coincidentally it happened.

  8. Haha! You cant tell the monkeys are pissed ahahah! Trying to diss people on here with irrelevant comments. You will always lose whites will always win try something I dare you

    • you are a stupid gay white man and black people have bigger dicks than you lame white people and we are way better in sex than you sucker. White man’s foot on blacks head is gay and he got a small penis

  9. OMG I was in tears just reading about the hardship that beautiful girl is going through for love.
    How can her evil parents blame her for love just because of the color of skin ? Dont they know we are all the same?
    I hope she reaches her financial goals, gets a degree and continue to be a role-model for every girl fighting for love and happiness in a world dominated by sexually pathetic racist white men who are inferior.
    As Jews, we know all about facing prejudice and hate, so its wonderful to see young white people reject white supremacist and embrace a one world color bling love for all.

    • I was in tears also, laughing at all this racism talk. I was just saying the other day to a co-worker that almost every comment section in here gets into the racism story.

    • “Dont they know we are all the same?” “a world dominated by sexually pathetic racist white men who are inferior.” “As Jews”

      Lol.. unfortunately the libtards (like ejomamma below) are too daft & anti-white to see this glaring contradiction, nor do they understand sarcasm. (that requires intelligence)

  10. Reading these comments on here saddens me, her parents should be ashamed of themselves, they are definitely racist, how could you stop your daughter from dating a guy who obviously has ALOT going on for himself , I applaud her for her courage and speaking out against her parents racist ways now the ENTIRE world knows they are racist I hope no one shops at his establishment, I have bi racial kids and they can careless they are mixed, my kids thrive very well in school and sports they both speak another language and plays instruments and I am a black women I actually left my ex husband because he was a loser who was white, so race should never determine who you love as long as they treat you well, I can certainly say God dont like ugly and her parents will get their karma because racism NEVER wins

  11. These coal burners need to be tattooed right on the forehead so when the blacks are sent to Africa we dont forget these mud sharks in White countries. You make a choice you face the repercussions

  12. Who wants their daughter with a man blacker than dirt? He may be a good guy, but look at him! All her kids will be dark & ugly with that awful hair. And black aggressive behavior to boot.

  13. Former Major League Soccer player for the Union? He played for their academy as a youth. Not even remotely the same thing.

  14. Couple things about this bother me. First, if it’s her personal savings, how can her dad take it away? Second, she’s still in high school, which makes her most likely still a teenager. Article is vague, but Michael is probably 20 or more. He shouldn’t be dating children.

    • First, maybe he helped set up the account when she was younger and has always had his name on her account, so the bank can’t keep him from closing it. Secondly, she’s 18 now, which means Tennessee she is legally and adult. The boyfriend is exactly the same age, he just got recruited by Clemson to play soccer. Nobody older dating any child.

  15. Seems that her boon friend ain’t stepping up to take care of her. What kind of ‘man’ would sit back and expect ‘his’ woman’s father to pay for both of them? Typical boon. Got itself a white girl to pimp out. How long till she’s popping out half-breeds and getting a welfare check? TNB

    • Libtards that expect the mudshark’s father to support her stupid ace, the boon and whatever half-breeds have obviously weakened brains. Welfare is as welfare does

  16. One day, this sad little girl will grow up and realize that her parents were right all along. She boasts of her educational accomplishments, but she is too naive to realize that if she has a kid with this man, her child’s IQ will take a hit. After all, the average white IQ is 100, and the average American black IQ is 85. Sorry, but it’s 2017, and people still don’t realize that race isn’t just skin deep.

    BTW, she can post all the pics of her pretty face that she likes, but her kid won’t have her beautiful coloration either, and it won’t identify with her and her family. He or she will identify as “black,” like countless other mulattoes from Obama to Halle Berry and so forth.

    • Her children will likely be just as pretty, or possibly prettier. And her beautiful coloration? No they will be the beautiful coloration your wife and daughters spend so much at the tanning salon for.

        • How does it equate to beautiful coloration? If there is a billion dollar industry dedicated to making you a beautiful brown color, like most mixed race kids. The topic was coloration.

            • Just showing your ignorance. I am 57, white and have never been to a tanning salon. Just pointing out the irony. I never go to E.STL but i see plenty of beautiful mixed race children in STL. Your comments are jusr rediculous.

  17. What a brave little girl, blessing her future children with an absentee father, low IQ, and depriving them of some of the most desired traits in the world: blue eyes, fair hair and fine features. What a sweet darling for running to the internet to beg for the kindness of strangers, while flinging mud on her evil, wacist parents who just wanted to spoil her fun!

    Let’s all give her a high five for her upstanding moral character and endless courage! You go, Ann Nicole— err, Allie Dowdle; you go, girl! Show the evil racist parents and bigoted society that it’s YOUR body, and you can do whatever YOU want with it, including casting your genetic gifts in any mud you like!

  18. Notice that there is no mention of her soccer star black boyfriend offering to pay for her expenses.

    Hahahahhahaha! LOLOLOLOLOL! And they say race stereotypes are “harmful” and false! Harmful to those that ignore them is more like it. ;)

    Just you wait: soon we’ll learn about how she’s become his personal chauffeur and pays for his housing with all the money of misled do-gooders who are funding this airheaded and disobedient teen. Next, we’ll see her with a kid that looks like it came from an adoption agency in Africa, and then she’ll be making another fundraiser campaign for the alimony money she isn’t receiving.


  19. Surely she had a clue her parents would not be happy with her choice, I am sure she has known their views from the dinner table. That said, she needs to grow up. She made her choice, she has a 4.0 gpa, she can get funding for school. Get a job, pool your resources with your boyfriend and make a way for yourselves. That’s what adults do, especially ones that make choices that piss off the money train (parents). Welcome to the real world. If you choose to alienate your support, you have to make your own way.

  20. My script blocker blocked 9 java scripts when I loaded this page. Good thing I also have an ad blocker installed.

    Miscegenation is a violation of God’s kind after kind laws.

  21. Her father is right. He has a right to decide who is in his family and who will be his grandchildren. Any father of any race has this right. Obviously most people’s preference is for there grandchildren to look like them. There is nothing wrong with that.

  22. Good for the father. Save his money for his real children, not this monstrosity that used to be his daughter. Unfortunate thing is, when she starts popping out little nigglets it is going to be we the taxpayers on the hook paying for her and her screwed up lifestyle, not GoFundMe. We NEED welfare reform now. Having kids out of wedlock or in a degenerate relationship should result in less welfare, not more.

  23. Big deal it’s her choice, and like so many fake GoFundMe pages this just could be just another Scam but it’s her life and who are we to judges

  24. ” Honour your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”

    She is going to become a statistic very soon.

  25. I am shocked at the comments here. I will always and forever fight against racism. If any of you racist people are Christian, I hope you know your judgement will be coming to you one day. We have to teach our children better.

    • I can’t really recall any passage in the bible that says “don’t be racist or ye will be judged”.. mind pointing it out for us?

      • Try “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Jesus Christ.” Galatians 3:28 Ring a bell?

  26. Dad has high morals, she might be found on a future heavy edition as found to be missing by her so called lover, but it wont say it was related to this story. Sounds like the whole thing was made up to get her to finance her high maintenance livestyle since she has to support her BF. Its not about racism, its about playing the public like a fiddle. One thing will be true, the african americans will see through it while the white people will be lining her gucci bags,

  27. Sounds to me like it’s just another case of a spoiled girl having a temper tantrum and playing the liberal race card, so she can keep receiving money for free.

  28. if you are racist then you are a pathetic people and sad lame because you dont have someone and are jealous of people that are not white get a life losers

    • you are the loser , bret 100% right , you are a scumbag asshole liberal communist imbecil , I hope you dont have kid´s , go read a book , make a break in the shity job you have and read you imbecil

  29. my money says that boon will have on the pole before the money is gone. that 33k from the libtard idiots will go for breast enlargement and a nose job, the welfare department will do the rest

  30. The only people who truly love you are your parents. They know what’s best for you. Michael knows he should find a woman from his own people. He doesn’t care about destroying your relationship with your parents. You need to tell Michael it’s over. There are plenty of African women for him to be with. He should love his people. There is a lonely African girl who needs him. You need to value your European heritage and your families European heritage. You are shaming your parents. You think this is making you popular so you do it. When everyone else has abandoned you, only your family will stick with you. You will want your children to have a family resemblance to your parents. “Look mom, my daughter looks like you”! You are young and foolish. You are tearing your family apart. Go to your mother and father, ask them what you should do. Then do it. They are the only ones in this world who love you with all their hearts. Do not shame your family anymore. Go take a trip to Europe and learn about your peoples history. Tell Michael he needs to love his African people and he should marry a girl who is African.
