Dad Allegedly Attacks Teen Daughter for Choosing a Black Dance Partner

Houston man beats daughter because she planned on dancing with a Black kid at her birthday party.

Aaron Aranza, 37, allegedly broke up a party where his daughter was practicing her dancing after he learned she'd chosen a 15-year-old Black boy as her partner. After kicking everybody out, he referred to the young man using a racial epithet, and asked his daughter if she was really going to dance with the boy at her 15th birthday celebration. "Are you serious?" he asked. He then allegedly pushed the young man, telling him, "I don't care that you're a kid."

According to charging documents, he then dragged his daughter inside, where he hit her with a belt and threw her down, causing her to hit her arm on a coffee table.
