Texas man whips 14-year-old daughter with a belt for dancing with a black friend

Published

A Houston man was charged with injuring his 14-year-old daughter out of anger that she chose a Black friend to be her dance partner for a traditional Mexican event, the Houston Chronicle reported on Tuesday.

Police said 37-year-old Aaron Aranza attacked his daughter on April 11 during a rehearsal party for her upcoming quinceañera, an event celebrating girls’ 15th birthdays that typically features a spotlight dance between the honoree and a partner. The rehearsal was held at her maternal grandmother’s house.

After finding out that the girl chose her friend, a 15-year-old Black boy, to dance with her at the event, Aranza allegedly told guests it was canceled before pushing the boy and using a racist slur against him, stating, “I don’t care that you are a kid.”

The suspect then allegedly took the girl into the residence, where he whipped her with a belt and threw her, injuring her arm. Aranza also reportedly threatened to take the girl to his house, even though she lives with her mother, then forced her back outside and dragged her across the front yard before leaving.

KTRK-TV reported that Aranza was later arrested, but released after posting $20,000 bond.

What does the Trump administration want from Iran?

Published

It was the latest in a series of assaults on tankers transporting oil through the Gulf. In May, Saudi, Norwegian and Emirati oil tankers were attacked off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, causing damage but no casualties. The attacks have gone unclaimed, so the perpetrator is unknown – at least publicly.

U.S. ally Saudi Arabia, Iran’s regional rival, blamed the Iranian government and called the May attacks “naked aggression.” Saudi King Salman asked the international community to “use all means” to punish Iran.
