Thank you to my friend Jennifer Lockett for inspiring me to write this story. So it is not bad enough that John Boehner is from Ohio and is the key bully in the misogynistic and homophobic House of Representatives, but now parts of Ohio have reverted back to the 1950’s.
I’m profoundly sad and disgusted to have to write this article in the wake of the Forbes article I wrote earlier. Jamie Hein, of Cincinnati, Ohio, posted a Whites Only sign on the pool at the duplex where she is the landlord. Hein tried to defend her racism by saying:
that she posted it because the girl used in her hair chemicals that would make the pool “cloudy”
What is more galling to me is that Hein is actually appealing the decision by the Hamilton County Courts.
I think what frightens me the most is that it is so painfully obvious that racism is alive and well in the United States. I don’t want to judge Ohio too harshly, but they did elect John Boehner and it was a key swing state in the 2004 election that went to George W. Bush.
