'Whites Only' sign prompts housing investigation

July 18, 2011
Housing Opportunities Made Equal of Virginia (HOME) conducted an investigation into a "whites only" for rent sign posted in Henrico County, Virginia.
     An image on HOME's website depicts the sign which read, "HOUSE FOR RENT," followed by a phone number to call and the phrase "whites only."
     The "whites only" line is written in a different color (black) than the phone number (green).
     HOME Director Amy Nelson says they took the picture of the sign posted near the intersection of Gayton Road and Cambridge Drive in Henrico's Far West End.
