Man threatened for challenging black mom at pool

'What can I charge against him for racial profiling?! "On behalf of our more than 20,000 teammates around the world, we extend our sincerest apologies to all who have been hurt by this incident, especially Ms. Edwards and her family". He then asked for ID, and that's when Edwards got angry and Bloom called the police.

In a statement it said Mr Bloom had resigned from his position as the pool chairman and a board member.

"If she has a card to get into the pool, I believe that should be enough", an officer is heard saying in the video.

"I think the situation is unfortunate that conclusions are being reached by people who have seen a 46-second video of their interaction".

The member then asked Bloom to verify Abhulimen' address, and when she gave what appeared to be a different one, Bloom said he thought "there's something a little askew" and asked for her ID. The light on the scanner turns green and the door unlocks, the officer says. In a statement posted on Twitter, the company called the situation "a bad incident" and said Bloom's actions did "not reflect the core values of our company". He has also been fired from his job at the packaging company Sonoco.

The racist man demands that the officer actually swipe the keycard to prove that it works.

Bloom resigned Thursday as the "pool chair" and a board member from the homeowners association of Glenridge, his community in Winston-Salem.

After Edwards' video went viral and he was identified, his employer, Sonoco Products, issued a statement apologizing to Edwards and announcing that Bloom "is no longer employed by the Company in any respect". Per NBC News, Adam Bloom is the man seen in July 4 video outside the Winston-Salem pool where Jasmine Edwards says he singled her out, along with her young son, as the only black people there that day.

Abhulimen said she lives in the Glenridge community where police were called.

The video comes about a week after a white woman allegedly assaulted a black teenager and told him and friends "they did not belong and they had to leave" a swimming pool in SC.

Sweden knocked out Switzerland to set up that England tie, and Federer turned manager to give the Swiss team some advice. It's about how many years have been playing at the top level. "I want to be here to focus on tennis, not eating bugs".


WXII reported that Bloom did not respond to its requests for comment.

"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 we seek to uphold as a community", the swim club said in a statement. Lawyer John Vermitsky issued a statement Friday saying his client feels bad and didn't intend to discriminate.

The questioning eventually led Abhulimen to call what was happening racial profiling, and Bloom made a decision to dial police to allow a "neutral third party" to resolve the situation.

Vermitsky said his client has had to take his wife and children away from their home to a safe location.

Jasmine Edwards filmed the freaky incident at a private pool in Winston-Salem.
