Unfortunately, Roommates, another racial discrimination act against Black people, have already been caught on tape. A Kansas City-area family claims these were racially discriminated against at a Lees Summit water park on Saturday. In accordance with Fox 4, the Evans family, including their two teenagers, alongside others, said they paid $2,000 to host a big birthday bash for his or her children at Summit Waves. Through the visit, video shows a worker denying the large group entry because of her being uncomfortable.
Because the footage of the incident sparks outrage, a study is underway per WDAF. Lees Summit Mayor Bill Baird released a statement concerning the incident saying,
Unfortunately, statements were created by a Parks and Recreation manager at Summit Waves which were inappropriate and insensitive.
Yet another statement from the town released on Monday claimed the household advertised the party on social media marketing. About 500 people arrived for the party, that is twice the quantity Summit Waives said it decided to for the function. Mayor Baird has requested the citys Parks and Recreation department to implement an activity which could have alleviated safety concerns with the large group that arrived for the party because the investigation is underway.
Mayor Baird isnt stopping there. He also asked the department to examine its method of communicating and getting together with people utilizing the citys parks so many people are treated with dignity and respect.
We should intentionally embrace a culture that’s welcoming and inclusive, and we should continually denounce any urge or impulse to exclude. I would like to expressly denounce comments posted by way of a Lees Summit Parks and Recreation employee on social media marketing.
He added, The comments were appalling rather than condoned by Parks and Recreation, and so are inconsistent with the culture I understand the town of Lees Summit strives to reflect.
Roommates, do you consider Mayor Bairds approach will undoubtedly be sufficient?
