Yup, you read it right. In January 0f 2012 with a bi-racial President, we still have people putting signs like this up over public swimming pools.

This time not only is it in 2012, but it’s in Columbus, Ohio.

According to the Associated Press piece by Andrew Welsh-Huggins, a landlord claimed that a little black girl’s hair care products dirtied the swimming pool water to such an extent that it warranted a “white only” sign at the public swimming pool entrance.

Luckily, a Civil Rights Panel judged that the posting of the sign was unfair and would be removed.

Sidenote: The bottom of the sign reads “Selma, Ala.,” followed by the date “14 July 31.”
