Alyssa Okada, the girlfriend of Patriots dafety Obi Melifonwu, quit her job as a personal trainer at Platinum Fitness in Fort Myers, Florida after she found out her boss called her “unclean” for dating black men.
Okada took to Facebook to explain the entire situation:
I’ve been struggling very hard for the past few days to find the words to express how I feel about leaving Platinum Fitness. I considered saying nothing at all but I realized that I refuse to stay quiet about something that has not only hurt me to the core but hurts millions every single day. I am the product of an interracial relationship. I have faced the obstacles that come along with this throughout my life. I also choose to LOVE people for who they are. For their character & their soul, not their outward appearance or the color of their skin.

Good for her. These douches deserve to be exposed. Her former bosses are going to catch some serious heat for this, but something tells us she won’t have any problems getting another gig.
