You would think, after all the flack she caught, that this guy would have at least been SHAMED into ACTING like he wasn’t a kard karrying member of the klan.
But nope: she still thinks he’s living in 1952. So, after saying that she was “just trying to protect her assets” and that she wasn’t a bad person, Jamie Hein appealed the Civil Rights Commission’s ruling on her “right” to post a “white only” sign on her property. And she failed.
A Cincinnati landlord who claimed a black girl’s hair products clouded an apartment complex’s swimming pool discriminated against the child by posting a poolside “White Only” sign, an Ohio civil rights panel said Thursday in upholding a previous finding.
The Ohio Civil Rights Commission voted 4-0 against reconsidering its finding from last fall. There was no discussion.
The group found on Sept. 29 that Jamie Hein, who is 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 chemicals in her hair that would make the pool “cloudy,” according to the commission.
The girl’s father, Michael Gunn, in brief comments Thursday, described his shock last spring when venturing out for a lunch break by the pool.
“My initial reaction to seeing the sign was of shock, disgust and outrage,” Gunn said. He also told the commission that his daughter was saddened months later to learn they moved from the apartment complex “was in a way related to the color of her skin.” Gunn declined to speak with reporters.
Hein has repeatedly declined to comment and did not attend the hearing. Messages were left at her lawyer’s office Wednesday and Thursday.
