A racist letter almost ruined a Tennessee girl's 10th birthday party.
Harmony Jones was celebrating by inviting a group of girls to her Memphis home for a sleep over.
But, one of the girl's RSVP shocked Harmony and her parents.
In the letter, written in bright markers, the girl wrote: "I will not be able to come to your birthday sleep over, because my dad will not let me go because you are black."
Harmony's parents are upset their daughter had to experience this racism, and blame the girl's parents for the situation.
"It angered me a little bit, it hurt me that my 10-year-old girl had to deal with this, and I myself never thought I would have to deal with this," said Harmony's dad Christopher Jones Sr. "I guess us as parents need to be more aware and conscious about what we teach our children."
Civil rights activist Lasimba Gray agrees.
"When parents run across racism that's a good moment to teach tolerance but more than that to teach understanding to appreciate each other and celebrate our diversity," said Gray.
Harmony didn't let the hateful letter rain on her parade.
She enjoyed her 10th birthday party with the friends who did attend.
