A Mississippi RV park owner evicted an interracial couple because of the color of their skin.
“Me and my husband, not ever in 10 years have we experienced any problem,” said Erica Flores Dunahoo, who is Hispanic and Native American and whose husband, a National Guardsman, is African-American. “Nobody’s given us dirty looks. This is our first time.”
Baker, who lives in Aberdeen, said he only did it because “the neighbors were giving me such a problem.”
The NAACP is investigating.
Asked if he had a problem with a mixed-race couple, Baker replied, “Oh, no.”
He said his church lets interracial couples attend.
Dunahoo said he told her they could attend their church but “we’re not allowed to be members.”
Baker explained that if neighbors have a problem, “the best thing you can do is what the neighbors want to do.”
Asked if he would rent the RV space if another interracial couple showed up, he replied, “I’m closing it down, and that solves the problem.”
He and Dunahoo, who retained her last name after marriage, went to talk to Baker again.
She said she had “prayed and prayed” for Baker to change his mind.
Baker returned the $275 the couple paid, and they are relocating to another RV park where the rent is higher — $325 a month.

This RV park owner should be fined simply for opening his big mouth. At least he is shutting down the park. No more issues.after that happens.

His church, "lets'' interracial couples attend, but can't be members!?!
And what is the biblical excuse for not having so-called interracial marriage that his church was able to draw from.
