CHARLOTTE, N.C. — “The lot hereby conveyed shall be used for residential purposes only and shall be owned and occupied by people of the Caucasian race.”
That inflammatory statement is the first rule listed on Myers Park’s deed restrictions. Two years ago, Newschannel 36 spotted the wording on a “sample deed” listed on the Myers Park Neighborhood Association website. The complaints that followed our coverage prompted the NACCP to complain to the Charlotte committee that polices discrimination.
Now, Charlotte Mecklenburg’s Community Relations Committee (CRC) has formally called that website publication “discriminatory” and the NAACP is making demands.
