    Black doctor and family attacked in Florida luxury resort pool — called ‘black b*tches’ and ‘n*ggers’

    The racist family who attacked Dr. Covey Banks and her family/Screenshot








    Dr. Covey Banks, a physician, and her family were vacationing in Florida when they were attacked in a hotel pool.
    In a Facebook post with video of the family yelling and calling her a “black b*tch” and “n*gger,” Banks described an encounter that started because she dared point the direction of the restroom to a woman who wanted a child to simply pee in the pool at the Omni luxury hotel.
    The family came back and became belligerent—in the video, a man holding a can of Miller Lite and slurring his speech tells her to “get back in the pool” and “don’t come to Florida” as she shoots video of the women attacking her—splashing Banks and her family and then finally escalating into intense verbal abuse.
    What’s worse, when Banks asked hotel security to act they refused to immediately remove the family from the hotel.
    “My niece saw them going into their room, which was in the same building and on the same floor as ours and my kids were frightened when we seen them at the pool later Sunday evening,” Banks writes.



    Banks then called the police, who were also unhelpful in her telling, telling her that if she wanted to press charges they would both be charged.
    “She screams, curses, yells racial slurs, obviously under the influence, swings at my niece but she got a scratch on her arm for being stopped and we’ll BOTH be charged?!” Banks wrote.
    After she posted about the incident on Facebook, Banks was initially censored because of the other family’s language though that was changed and her story has now been covered by Splinter News and Atlanta Black Star.

    'It's only a shower young lady, don't worry!' White man asks black woman if her daughter, five, had washed before getting into hotel pool - as video shows him taunting the little girl


    • A video posted on Wednesday by Carle Wheeler shows her and her family at the Westin Hotel in Pasadena, California
    • On Monday, a white man approached Wheeler and her daughter and asked if they had bathed before getting in the pool
    • Wheeler states that the man claimed to be a health professional worried about diseases in pools
    • Hotel staff called the remarks 'inappropriate' but the manager let the man go away and then threatened the black family that he would call the police
    • Wheeler and her family left the hotel but white guest corroborated the details and hotel staff claimed they would look at the footage and remove the man



    A white man accosted a black family at a high end California hotel on Monday and questioned whether they bathed when they tried to get in the pool.

    A video posted on Wednesday by Carle Wheeler shows the woman, her mother and daughter in pure disbelief at the audacity of the man while at the Westin Hotel in Pasadena, California.

    'The man asked if me and my little girl had showered before getting into the pool because people carry diseases into the pools and he doesn't want the health department to shut the pool down,' Wheeler said in the video caption.

    'The man asked if me and my little girl had showered before getting into the pool because people carry diseases into the pools and he doesn't want the health department to shut the pool down,' Wheeler said in the video caption

    'Minutes later he approached us again on the opposite end of the pool under the pretense that he worked for the health department.'

    Staff manager Ofelia Dolliver informs the group that the general manager is on his way to access the situation.

    'Because that's part of the rules and I don't know about you guys but I am tired of people peeing in pools and people consider baths,' the man asserted.

    He can be seen in a black and white striped polo with black jogging pants adorned with a yellow trim.

    Wheeler responded: 'But you didn't ask anyone else, you didn't ask anyone else. You only asked if we showered.'

    Dolliver appears to be on the side of the family, calling the remarks 'inappropriate'

    'You were the only one in the pool,' he claimed but the family points out that there were more people in the car.

    He added: 'Then so what, relax.'

    Dolliver appears to be on the side of the family, calling the remarks 'inappropriate.'
    The man claims to have had apologized but when Wheeler's mom tries to explain that it wasn't his business, he stated that 'it is everybody's business.'

    Wheeler and her mom instruct their family to take the small girl back upstairs but the man takes it upon himself to taunt the child before she leaves the area. 'Because it's only a shower young lady, don't worry,' he said

    'You don't know who he is and you are letting him leave? What he did?' said Wheeler's mom.

    The manager responded: 'Please let me talk to you over here, because I don't want to call the police. And if I do, it is going to be a big headache for everybody.'

    The group continue in a back and forth as Sprayberry deems that the man is 'a guest in the hotel' before Wheeler's mom checks him and informs him that they too are guest at the hotel.

    The scene fades out as Sprayberry tells the family that since the man has left the pool, they should be able to enjoy the pool.

    Wheeler details that only after some of the white guest, who had been in the Jacuzzi, called the front desk did Sprayberry believe what had occurred.

    He then informed the family that he would be looking at security footage to determine who the man was and remove him from the hotel.

    The family left the hotel early on Monday, with Wheeler claiming that Dolliver apologized for the situation and admited that Sprayberry didn't handle the situation appropriately.

    'It's just sad that in 2018 we are still dealing with these issues and still having to teach our children things that people had to teach their children in the 50s and 60s. Nothing has changed,' Wheeler said in a video detailing the effects of the event on her, her family and child.
    lack woman responds to racist incident at hotel pool

    'In light of these events that happened, we feel it is important to share that we do not condone comments or behavior directed to our pool guests,' the hotel said in a statement

    She added: 'It's sad that I had to explain to my beautiful little five year old brown skinned girl why in 2018 a white man would think it's OK to ask a little girl and her mom if we showered our presumably dirty black skin before entering a swimming pool.'

    The hotel released a statement, obtained by ABC 7, that said:

    'In light of these events that happened, we feel it is important to share that we do not condone comments or behavior directed to our pool guests. The safety and security of our guests is our top priority. We strive to maintain an environment where our guests feel welcome and are treated with equal respect and attention from our team.'

    Since the police were not called to the scene, there wasn't a police report filed.

    “So I’m at a black owned restaurant and this white woman was very very pressed that an employee was eating on his break in uniform. She went to the cashier and asked for their district manager, the store manager and wanted to have a card with the owners contact info and then went on to rant about how it’s unprofessional to have him in the front of house eating while the restaurant is opened. The cashier calmly told her that they did not have a break room and legally he couldn’t stay in the back while he was on break.

    Then she started crying and said he was looking at her suggestively and she felt threatened. She said she was gonna call the police and now she’s outside.

    Bruh.

    Update***

    Police came and talked to her outside then came inside to talk to the boy (who’s only 17) and the manager. They apologized for having to come and then went outside to talk to the old lady. They came in after and said they told her that she had to leave the business and asked her not to come back.”

    I don't know what restaurant that is, I'm assuming fast food, though it's not one that is in my area. I see employees of fast food restaurants, including Chipotle and Qdoba, eating in the restaurant section all the time. I always assume they are on break and that's the only place for them to go, plus it's dinner time and they need to eat as well. I would never call the police and complain. Seriously, the nerve of some people is amazing.

    From Facebook:


    This guy is a student and frat master at Texas Tech University. The shit he’s posted here is sick. Suggesting that his frat brothers kill illegal immigrants at the border.

    This seems to be a continuing trend with the @realdonaldtrump supporters who support his immigration policy. And yes it was his policy regardless of who much they want to point the fingers at Obama or Clinton. This is sick and this boy should be arrested.
