A Tennessee property manager was fired after a tenant claimed she and her boyfriend were discriminated against for being black when the employee called the police because he wore socks in the apartment complex swimming pool.
Camry Porter, a tenant at Riverset Apartments in Mud Island, Tennessee, recorded parts of the incident on Wednesday between her and the property manager Erica Walker. Porter posted the videos on Facebook where it went viral and was shared more than 9,000 times.
The article goes on to state the following:
Porter said she and her boyfriend took her godchildren to the pool on Wednesday when Walker, who is white, told the man he needed to remove his socks or leave, pointing to a sign requiring proper swimming attire. However, Porter pointed out that some people were wearing hats in the pool, breaking the swimming attire rule. The video showed three white men wearing hats in the pool.
“She said no hats, no shirts and no socks. But we have two men – who are her friends – sitting here in hats,” Porter said.
Walker was heard in the video telling Porter that hats were allowed if they were not dunked in the water. Porter told WREG she believed she and her boyfriend were “singled out because of their skin color.”
“It does look funny,” she told WREG. “It’s 25, 30-plus white people out here and you haven’t said anything — you’re partying with them. You’re partying with them! But when we come, it’s an issue.”
