David Williams, a 24-year-old African American website owner originally from Boston, moved to the Houston neighborhood where homes are valued from $400,000 to $3 million earlier this year.
When he arrived, he said he noticed that people looked at him strangely, but didn’t think about racism too much until he and his friends were denied entrance to the subdivision.
The security guard went on to tell him that he received orders from the top to not let him and his friends in.
“Look, I’m not allowed to let you guys in. We personally don’t have a problem with you, but we’ll lose our jobs.”
