A Case Of Hyperbole, But Not The Worst

As I was reading this, I got to a quote by the mayor that said, “It’s the worst thing anybody can do to anybody.” Really — the WORST?

Wildwood bills itself as a family friendly resort on the Jersey Shore, but suddenly, it’s a city dealing with an incident of racism.

“I thought maybe someone thought this is prank,” says Uyvonne Robinson, “but it’s not a prank to us. This is our livelihood.”

On Wednesday morning, someone posted a sign outside Nana’s Apartments that read “Parking for whites only.” Robinson and her husband have owned the motel for eleven years, but they have never seen anything like this.

We feel like it was disrespectful and hurtful and mean-spirited for someone to do that,” says Robinson.

The eight-bedroom motel caters to families and adults. It is not listed as a loud, animal house property by the city, so they are not sure what provoked the racism.

“A lot of places rent to teenagers,” says Arthur Robinson, “but we just don’t do that.”

Police took down the sign immediately and stored it as evidence. Mayor Ernie Troiano apologized for the sign on behalf of the city.

“It’s the worst thing anybody can do to anybody,” says Troiano.
