A woman identified as Erika Walker, a property manager at Riverset Apartments in Tennessee was fired for calling the police on a black man for wearing socks in the pool.
Camry Porter, a resident of the complex was at the pool with her two god children and her boyfriend over 4th of July weekend when Walker approached them and told them the man needed to remove his socks because it wasn’t proper pool attire. When Porter asked the woman to provide identification, Walker responded, “I’m not about to go back and forward with you. You all need to leave.”
Porter responded by saying, “I work too hard to pay this rent to not be able to enjoy the amenities offered so, nope I refuse.” At this point, Walker proceeded to call the police. The police did not take any action, however after investigating the incident Walker was fired from her job. The complex released a statement via Facebook saying, “After assessing statements from Ms. Porter and determining that this former employee’s actions violate our company’s policies and beliefs, she is no longer employed by Riverset Apartments.” They posted another statement as well, “To confirm, Ms. Walker was terminated immediately after we completed our investigation yesterday afternoon. She will never be employed by Trilogy Residential Management, LLC or any of its properties in the future.”
