I heard a preview of a news story earlier about an Ohio landlord who hung a sign outside the fence of a public pool that read ‘Public Pool whites only’. I never heard anything else about it, so I texted my sister-in-law, who lives in Ohio, and asked her about it. She told me that this lady in Cincinnati was claiming that the hair products of a black girl were “making the water cloudy”.
Has this lady never heard of swimming caps!? I mean, I am outraged by the ignorance and closed minds of some people! This is 2012!! There is no reason why someone has any right to be like that towards another person, no matter what race they are. The apartment manager, I believe her name is Jamie Hein, said she is not racist at all and the sign was just an antique that she collected..uh-huh.
First of all, if you don’t have a problem with race, why are you collecting “whites only” swimming pool signs and putting them on the fence of the swimming pool in the building you manage?
Second of all, you’re full of shit.
Third, of all, on the off-chance you were actually concerned about the cloudy pool water — which you weren’t, but let’s pretend — the rational response would have been to institute a swimming cap policy. The rational response is never — and I mean never ever – a ”WHITES ONLY” sign.
And finally, if you’re going to be racist, just be RACIST. Own it! Why make up nonsense about cloudy pool water? Just go ahead and let your racist freak flag fly! I mean, what’s next? Banning black children from pools because you heard somewhere that black kids are three times more likely to pee in a pool than white kids?
This is just so ridiculous. I hope this little girls dad sues the shit out of this crazy lady.
