Man who challenged black family’s use of pool loses job

"Yeah, they kind of make their way around sometimes, is the only challenge".

She said he had singled her out because of her skin color.

On July 4, 2018 at 1:21 PM, Winston-Salem Police Department Officers responded to a "Disturbance" call for service in the 3300 block of Tallison Drive at the Glenridge Com Swimming Pool.

Based on the incident at the Glenridge Community Swimming Pool located in the 3300 block of Tallison Drive, the Winston-Salem Police Department (WSPD) has received multiple national and worldwide media requests for both an official statement and for release of the telephone call from the reporting person to the WSPD Communications Center.

"If she has a card to get into the pool, I believe that should be enough", a Winston-Salem police officer says in the clip.

Edwards tells him, "Where does it say that I have to show an ID to use my own pool". Because this is ridiculous'.

The man then walked away when Abhulimen asked him if he would like to apologize for calling the police.

The woman, Jasmine Edwards, posted a video of the incident on Facebook. This happened to me and my baby today.

The Glenridge Homeowners Association announced Thursday that Bloom resigned from his position as the pool's chairman and board member, effective immediately.

Once she gave him the address, he asked her for an ID to verify the address, which is when Edwards resisted. Social media users shared a Facebook post in which Abhulimen called it a "classic case of racial profiling" - the latest in a string of police calls on black people who are doing ordinary, nonthreatening tasks that have made headlines.

John Welsh, Greg Cunningham, Jordan Hugill and fellow goalkeeper Mathew Hudson all also congratulated the former 24-year-old. Pickford then saved from Carlos Bacca to secure a 4-3 win and send the Three Lions into a quarter-final clash with Sweden.

She later resigned from her job as CEO of a health company.

The incident occurred July 4 at a private community pool in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Vermitsky, the attorney, alleges in the statement that his client got involved when a female board member, who is not named, approached Bloom saying Edwards was not familiar to her, and had allegedly given an address on "a road in the neighbourhood where houses were not yet built". We apologize to our neighbors who were directly hurt by these actions, and we hope that everyone in Glenridge will join us in redoubling our efforts to care for and support all of our neighbors during this hard time.

The incidents come about a week after a white woman was accused of shoving a 15-year-old black boy at a SC pool.

"It would be nice if you apologized", Edwards shoots back.

Vermitsky told the Winston-Salem Journal that Bloom's resignation did not confirm any wrongdoing. His company, Sonoco, also issued a statement.

"I think the situation is unfortunate that conclusions are being reached by people who have seen a 46-second video of their interaction", Vermitsky told the paper.

"I'm heartbroken that I'm no longer on that team, but unfortunately we felt at the end of the day talking through it that the company's best interest would be uh served without me", he said. In a Twitter post, South Carolina-based Sonoco apologized to Edwards and said the situation doesn't reflect company values.
