Afro-American Lineage Taught Racism Awareness in Daughter
Halsey grew up with parents with different heritage. While her mother is white, her father is not - he is Afro-American. So, Chris's ancestry made a lot of impact on Halsey's life.
She grew up understanding the perspective of people towards the dark-toned people. In her bio on the Vulture, she has illustrated how she and her father were treated differently, just based on color. In her word,
When I was little, if someone saw me and my dad walking through, like, a grocery store parking lot, women would come up to us and be like, ‘Sweetie, are you okay? Because they saw a little white girl walking with a black man."
