Open Letter to Steve Harvey:
Dear Mr. Harvey,
My name is Dakerri and my wife and I listen to your show every morning. After hearing your response to the Strawberry Letter on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 my wife and I were deeply disappointed by your extremely offensive comments to families with same-sex parents. It is bigoted comments such as yours which is one of the reasons we started our YouTube channel Two Mom Diaries. My wife and I have been together for 14 years, will be married for 5 in September and we have a beautiful 16 month old son that yes we planned and conceived together contrary to what you stated on your show on Tuesday. Two women and two men can plan and have families and no as you so ignorantly stated one of us is not the daddy. We are two women, we are both mothers.
You then threw in biology, but since when does biology determine a family? You insulted my family and so many others. You should be using your platform to promote and uplift diversity especially being a minority and I am very disappointed in your comments. I urge you to take some time to educate yourself on different types of families. There are numerous families such as mine who choose to share our stories on YouTube in hopes to inspire others as well as educate people such as yourself. I hope that you are not teaching your children the same negativity you displayed on your show Tuesday. Just because a family is different from yours doesn't make it any less of a family. I hope this letter some how finds you and you take a step back and reevaluate your perception of same sex families. I and so many others would appreciate hearing an update from you and hopefully you acknowledging your words and the impact you have made on many of your listeners. If you do not support bigotry and do celebrate diversity, your LGBTQ listeners need to hear that, because as of now, after Tuesday I cannot support someone with ignorant views like you displayed.
