Today’s topic: My boss’ daughter What’s up morning crew? I need Help! I started working for this construction company about two months ago and I noticed a young lady that worked at the front desk looking at me. I would go in and say hello and have small talk. I am a Black male and she is a very attractive white female. Lately we been sneaking around and going to different places out of town, etc. One day, I was leaving work and I saw her hug my boss. Mind you, he is hardly ever on site and she has never mentioned that he was her father. So I asked her while we were hanging out, was that her dad and she replied yes. Some of the co-workers had warned me about him being against interracial dating, because his sister was abused by her husband of color. I told her that we should stop because I need my job and he may fire me if he knows. She was very upset with me and has now started threatening me, saying she will tell her dad about us and say that I forced myself on her if I discontinue our relationship. Please help me get out of this mess!
