Parents Jailed After Beating Daughter, 17, for ‘bringing shame on the family’ by having a Black Boyfriend

The assaulted boyfriend, Aflonce Ncube

Swansea, UK: The champions – David and Frances Champion – will be spending 12 months and nine months respectively in jail after assaulting their daughter, Jane, for dating a black boyfriend. Jane’s boyfriend, Aflonce Ncube, was also subjected to racist attacks at least twice.

Mr and Mrs Champion were said to have repeatedly punched their daughter while screaming ‘vile’ racist insults. Jane was also grabbed round the throat and had her hair pulled which left her with lumps and bruises. She had then been 17.

The first attack happened after Miss Champion’s parents were outraged to find her in a ‘state of undress’ with Mr Ncube when they returned to their home in St Thomas, Swansea. Mr Champion, 50, shouted racist abuse at Mr Ncube before grabbing and kicking him in the back of the leg and pushing him out the front door.

After the attack, Jane took refuge at her grandmother’s house but returned to her family home once the situation had ‘calmed down’. But a month later, the Champions confronted Jane in a pub asking if she was still seeing Mr Ncube. When she replied that she was, Mr Champion punched her in the face.

According to the judge who presided over their case, Judge Peter Heywood: ‘We live in a liberal and enlightened society and these sorts of racist behaviour cannot be tolerated… The way you reacted was totally inappropriate… I would be failing in my public duty if I was to do anything other than to impose a custodial sentence.’

  1. Don’t be stupid. Of course that is racist. The father used racist language against the young man and physically assaulted him. The whole reason for the violence is because the man’s daughter was/is dating a black guy. How can you actually say it’s not racist? You’re just as stupid as the girls parents!

  2. @whiteman I won’t even address your complete ignorance, “her own kind,” really? You’re ridiculous. That is the definition of racism.
    And her parents should not be PUNCHING HER IN THE FACE. For dating a black man. Another ridiculous thing.

  3. Everyone is a little bit racist (depending on how you’d define racism)…some more than others. I don’t see anything wrong with wanting their daughter to date from her own race. It’s the violence against her and her boyfriend that was wrong.

  4. I, think in that clime, a girl of 17yrs is of age and should know what is good for herself. The parent behaviour is bad. Moreso, he wouldn’t have reacted the way he did if it were to be a white guy that dates the daughter. The punishment serves the parents better.

  5. I’m from Swansea, and these people make me feel deeply ashamed. Fortunately this is an extremely rare and isolated case of racism and, as the judge stated, our city is generally characterized by its liberal and enlightened society. I hope that Jane now feels empowered to continue her relationship with Alfonce.

  7. No doubt this is racism but it is not restricted to these parents from sweasea,the Nigerian parents are the worse offenders especially the widely travelled educated Yorubas.They will do every thing humanly possible to discourage their daughters marrying the Ibos and when they fail in their bid to stop such marriage they will wait for an excuse to call for divorce in an enlarge family meeting even when the marriage has been fully consumated.

  8. What is going on in Britain?.Few days ago 2 Pakistani parents were jailed for life because they killed their daughter for imbibing british culture.What do we make of the latest story? Suarez of liverpood was severely sanctioned for racist comments on Evra,Terry is walkin a free man for his racist comments on Antnoine Ferdinand.There is racism in Britain,especially England.

  9. The truth is that every nation in d world is guilty of one racial behaviour or the other. And parents, most especially find themselves caught up in it. As far as you disallow yourself of your kids befriend one another for reason of difference in religion, color, ideology, belief, language, and in some case, even dialects. We have cases where the children are both black, but one being african and d other afro-american and d parents say No to such union. Racism is with us all, we all have to change our attitude.

  10. IF i were Mr Acube,I wil use dis opportuate to impregrant the girl so that b4 they wil come back,she wil put to bed.guy dis is ur time ooo. useless parents
