Other than apologies to everyone – living and dead – who had any connection whatsoever to the legendary TV series WKRP in Cincinnati, I’m really not sure what else I can say about this?
A landlord found to have discriminated against a black girl by posting a “White Only” sign at a swimming pool wants a state civil rights commission to reconsider its decision.
The Ohio Civil Rights Commission found on Sept. 29 that Jamie Hein, who’s white, violated the Ohio Civil Rights Act by posting the sign at a pool at the duplex where the teenage girl was visiting her parents. The parents filed a discrimination charge with the commission and moved out of the duplex in the racially diverse city to “avoid subjecting their family to further humiliating treatment,” the commission said in a release announcing its finding.
An investigation revealed that Hein in May posted on the gated entrance to the pool an iron sign that stated “Public Swimming Pool, White Only,” the commission statement said.
Several witnesses confirmed that the sign was posted, and the landlord indicated that she posted it because the girl used in her hair chemicals that would make the pool “cloudy,” according to the commission.
Cloudier than a summer’s worth of white people’s (and black people’s and Hispanic people’s and Asian peoples’, yadda yadda yadda…) urine?
As god as my witness, I thought racists could fly!!!!
