A Houston, Texas father is now behind bars after beating his teen daughter once he realized she chose black teenager to be her partner for a quinceanera dance.
Aaron Aranza, 37, was charged with injury to a child connected to the alleged incident that occurred in April. According to court documents, Aranza’s daughter
was having a party at her maternal grandmother’s house to practice quinceanera dancing. She chose a friend, a 15-year-old African-American boy, as her dance partner.
When he learned of this, Aranza became angry, according to the documents. He went outside to the front yard where the partygoers were gathered and told them it was canceled.
The documents state he then used a racial epithet to refer to the young man when he asked his daughter if she wanted the teen as her dance partner. “Are you serious?” Aranza asked her.
According to the documents, Aranza pushed the young man, saying “I don’t care that you are a kid.”Aranza then took his daughter inside the house, where he allegedly hit her with a belt and dragged her.
He also allegedly tossed her, causing his daughter to hit her arm on a coffee table. He said he was going to take her home with him to live even though she lives with her mother.
When Aranza took his daughter outside, the documents state, she struggled against him and he dragged her across the front yard. Then he left.
Police later arrested him, and he is being held in the Harris County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.
How post-racial of him.
