Rob Mathis and his wife live in Holton, Michigan and they were looking at a five-bedroom, 22-acre home, according to The Washington Post. The owners of the home appeared to be white supremacists based on that as soon as Mathis and his wife walked into the home, a confederate flag mat was on the dining table.
Mathis also noticed two confederate flags in the home’s decked out NASCAR garage. Mathis is a black man and his wife is Hispanic. At the time, Mathis thought to himself if the owner of the home was a Klansman.
Mathis and his wife went upstairs with the real estate agent to take a look at one of the rooms and when they saw an old yellow document, it was a Ku Klux Klax application. In an interview with WZZM, he was thinking to himself “Oh my God, let’s go and get out of here right now.”
“I feel sick to my stomach knowing that I walk to the home of one of the most racist people in Muskegon hiding behind his uniform and possibly harassing people of color and different nationalities,” Mathis wrote on Facebook.
The man who owned the home is a local police officer and is now on paid leave while an investigation is ongoing. He has been identified as 48-year-old white man Charles Anderson. Anderson beat a case in 2009 after he shot and killed an unarmed black man as well.
Mathis’ family believes that Anderson knew what he was doing by having racist memorabilia in his house. That’s definitely a valid opinion. Anderson needs to be terminated as a police officer now. Trying to intimidate people of color like what was disgusting. Flip the page to see the KKK application and Mathis’ Facebook post about the situation.
