A Cincinnati landlord named Jamie Hein posted a sign on her apartment  complex’s swimming pool entrance which read, “PUBLIC SWIMMING POOL:  WHITE ONLY.” A few days later, discrimination charges were filed with  the Ohio Civil Rights Commission by Michael Gunn, an outraged tenant.
From the complaint:

“We  invited my daughter, who is African-American, to visit and swim in the  pool for the Memorial Day weekend,” Gunn wrote in his complaint. “The  owner, Jamie Hein, accused my daughter of making the pool ‘cloudy’  because she used chemicals in her hair. Days later, she posted [the  sign].”

But when ABC News confronted Hein, 31, about the sign, she denied any wrongdoing or malice:

“I’m not a bad person,” said Jamie Hein of Cincinnati. “I don’t have any problem with race at all. It’s a historical sign.”
