Another Victim of the P.C. Mafia

It's like a girl can't even display an infamous emblem of hate and bigotry anymore:


An Ohio landlord accused of discriminating against an African-American girl with a "white only" sign at her swimming pool told ABCNews.com that the sign was an antique and a decoration. 

"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." 

The sign in question reads, "Public Swimming Pool, White Only." It is dated 1931 and from Alabama.

Precisely. This is 2011. This is heritage, not hate:

"I've never said anything to that child," Hein said. "If I have to stick up for my white rights, I have to stick up for my white rights. It goes both ways."

And may I add, that men get sexually harassed too. And all these poor people resent me because I'm rich. And your gay agenda is making my kids all homosexual...


What? The Muslims made me do it!
