“To us it was pretty clear that he didn’t like that we are an interracial couple”

renter response

A reader reports on Sunday:

“My girlfriend and I just toured a room in a house in Brightwood that we saw on Craigslist. The man was very cordial and professional and the tour was pretty routine. A few hours I got the below email from the owner of the house.

Obviously, we were pretty upset when we got this message. To us it was pretty clear that he didn’t like that we are an interracial couple (I’m white and my girlfriend is black). Luckily, we were not interested in renting the room.

I was hesitant to reach out, but I’m still upset. The whole thing is sad, especially since the man was an older African-American man.”
