This story right here is ridiculous:
David Williams thought moving to Houston from Boston would be a good idea. At least, that’s what the 24-year-old website owner thought. “For the most part, when we first moved in, everything was low key,” Williams said. “Sometimes you see wandering eyes around the neighborhood.” That neighborhood happens to be the Royal Oaks subdivision , one of Houston’s most exclusive communities. Homes there are valued from $400,000 to $3 million.
Williams leased a home on Stuart Manor. As time went by, things got progressively worse. “They must be selling drugs so now, it’s we’re selling drugs in the neighborhood,” he said. But he said that was easy compared to his next experience: 2 weeks ago, all of his guests were denied entry into the subdivision, stopped at the front gate. All of those guests were African American.
He went to go pick up his cousin who was walking on foot through the gate at the front of the door. That’s when he said a security guard told him the following, “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.”
The security guard told him that order came down from the community manager. When asked if anyone could come in, Quanell X said the security guard told him, “Off the record, someone white can come in but we were instructed that no black males can go to that address.”
Wow. Watch the story in its entirety below:
