An Ohio man got a very rude greeting recently, and all he was trying to do was take a load off. Joseph Ross of Dayton, checked into a Motel 6, Friday (July 27), and was greeted with a show of blatant racism and disrespect, when a message reading “Hello Ni**er!” popped up on the television in his room.
Ross traveled to nearby Sharonville to attend a jazz festival, and checked into the motel that was not shy about their feelings towards Black people. “I turned the TV on and when I laid back on the bed I just happened to see something on the screen and I was like, 'Ah, that ain't there, so then I focused my eyes and I couldn't believe what was on there,'” he told Cincinnati's WCPO.
ANAACP investigation confirmed that the motel was aware of the incident, but refused to give insight into why it happened. “The person who answered the phone confirmed the information was true but provided no explanation or clarity of why,” read a post on the website of Cincinnati chapter of the civil rights organization.
