A white man in North Carolina, apparently with nothing better to do, called the police on a black woman he assumed couldn’t afford to swim in the pool of her upscale neighborhood, reports the NY Post.

The white man, allegedly called the police because he didn’t think she had enough money to live in the ritzy neighborhood and luxuriate at the exclusive pool.

He apparently didn’t ask the same of the other white folks lounging at the pool.

John Vermitsky, his attorney, told The Post that Bloom works for the Glenridge Homeowners Association, and is the pool chairman and board member.

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, Bloom quit his pool chairman and board member positions on Thursday night, effective immediately.

“We sincerely regret that an incident occurred yesterday at our community pool that left neighbors feeling racially profiled,” the homeowners association said in a statement.

“In confronting and calling the police on one of our neighbors, the pool chair escalated a situation in a way that does not reflect the inclusive values Glenridge seeks to uphold as a community.”

In yet another alleged case of racial profiling caught on video, a white man in North Carolina spent his Fourth of July holiday calling the police on a black woman who was trying to swim in her neighborhood pool – because he didn’t believe she was rich enough to live there.

Edwards claimed in the video that the man – identified by his lawyer as Adam Bloom – reported her to authorities because she didn’t have an ID card on her, proving that she and her son lived in the Winston-Salem neighborhood where the pool is located.

His lawyer, John Vermitsky, told The Post that his client works for the Glenridge Homeowners Association, where he and Edwards live, as the pool chairman and board member – so he’s required to ask people for IDs on account of his position.

“He had a pool member come to him and say ‘this person doesn’t appear to be a pool member’ and asked to check their credentials, as he’s required to do so,” Vermitsky said.

One of the officers on the scene on Wednesday can be heard asking Bloom if residents are required to carry a “Swim card” of some sort, granting them access to the pool area.

One woman from South Carolina was dubbed “Pool Patrol Paula” after she reportedly accosted two black teens for swimming at her neighborhood pool.

“In confronting and calling the police on one of our neighbors, the pool chair escalated a situation in a way that does not reflect the inclusive values Glenridge seeks to uphold as a community.”

A white man called police on a black family at a neighbourhood pool because he didn’t think they were rich enough to live in the community, it was claimed.

Mum Jasmine Edwards was stunned and furious when the man approached her in what she claims was a “Classic case of racial profiling”.

“Ms Edwards says to the shirtless man and police who attempted to resolve the dispute:”I feel this is racial profiling.

A police officer tells the man that Ms Edwards has an access card and that should be enough to prove that she was a local resident who is allowed to be there.

In the footage, Ms Edwards accused the man of wasting taxpayers’ money and asked the officers if there was a way to charge him for “Racial profiling”, but police said that would be a matter for a civil court instead of police.

“The lawyer added:”He had a pool member come to him and say ‘this person doesn’t appear to be a pool member’ and asked to check their credentials, as he’s required to do so.

The homeowners’ association expressed regret over the incident and said: “In confronting and calling the police on one of our neighbors, the pool chair escalated a situation in a way that does not reflect the inclusive values Glenridge seeks to uphold as a community.”
