Landlord insists ‘best friends I got is colored’ after tenant claims she got evicted for inviting over black friends

Published

Allen and Patricia McCoy are being sued by a former tenant who alleges that she was evicted because she was friends with Black people.

According to an ACLU lawsuit, Victoria Sutton said that McCoy called her a “n***er lover” after a black co-worker and their family left her home last year, WSBTV reported.

Sutton explained that she invited the colleague and family over for a playdate and hugged the co-worker goodbye. She said that McCoy said she should be ashamed of herself and was calling Child Protective Services for having the “n***er lover” on his property.

Sutton said she called Patricia McCoy that evening after Allen threatened eviction. According to the lawsuit, McCoy said that Sutton should think about the consequences before she “brought that n***er around.”

“I don’t put up with n***ers in my (house) and I don’t want them in my property,” the lawsuit cites a recording of the conversation with Patricia McCoy.

The local news station caught up with the McCoy to ask them if there was any truth to the matter. Allen McCoy explained that it was impossible because “some of the best friends I got is colored.”

McCoy went on to claim that Sutton had damaged the property. According to the interview transcript, McCoy then called his wife out to answer questions.

“(Grunts) Let me get the ole lady out. And tell ya ‘bout..,” the transcript said.

“Some of my best friends are Black,” she agreed.

Sutton said that she was put in a bind having to rush to find housing and a school that could work with her special needs child.

Trump and his enablers are now in open defiance of all democratic norms: Congress needs to quit stalling and impeach

Published

on

During all the months when the world waited with bated breath for the results of the Mueller report, the most pressing question was always whether the special prosecutor would find that President Trump and his campaign had colluded with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election. Trump had branded the investigation a "witch hunt" and repeated the words "No collusion! No obstruction!" on a loop. But legal observers made clear that there was no legal concept called "collusion." and instead Mueller would be looking at whether or not the Trump campaign had engaged in a criminal conspiracy.
