Racist Who Posted 'Whites Only' Pool Sign is Clueless

A racist lady, who posted a "Whites Only" sign (pictured) at a pool used by tenants in her housing complex, is urging the Ohio Civil Rights Commission -- which found that she violated a black girl's civil rights -- to reconsider its decision. True story.
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.

The commissions spokesman adds, if the commission upholds its original finding, then the case will be referred to the Ohio attorney general's office, which would then represent the commission's findings before an administrative law judge. It would still be possible for racist Jamie and the commission to reach a settlement before resorting to legal action, and any decision by the administrative judge could possibly be appealed to Hamilton County Common Pleas Court in Cincinnati.
