CINCINNATI-Jamie Hein put up a sign saying “Public Swimming Pool, White Only” outside of her pool in Cincinnati, Ohio. Hein claims that the sign is historical sign and that she is not racist.
Michael Gunn says Hein put up the sign after he brought his daughter, who is Black, to her pool and Hein complained that the chemicals in his daughters hair made the pool cloudy.
ABC News Reports:
The Ohio Civil Rights Commission found on Sept. 29 that Hein did violate the Ohio Civil Rights Act by posting the sign, but Hein has asked that the decision be reconsidered. The sign has since been stolen.
“I’ve never said anything to that child,” Hein said. “If I have to stick up for my white rights, I have to stick up for my white rights. It goes both ways.”
