  • A patron visiting Cincinnati, Ohio for a weekend of music and fun at the Macy's Music Festival was in for unexpected surprise at a local motel.

    According to reports, African- American patrons of a Sharonville Motel 6 were completely taken aback when they flipped on their TV  to find the phrase "Hello N**gers" written across the screen.

    The message was reportedly embedded in the TV graphics.

    Derrick Forward, the president of a nearby NAACP chapter, said the individual who discovered the message is a member of his chapter and quickly contacted him about the incident.

    A representative for the Motel 6's parent company, Accor, released a statement saying it was "appalled" by what occurred and that the company was doing a full investigation on the matter.

    Sharonville police have also begun an investigation, citing it as a serious issue.

    The president of the Cincinnati NAACP chapter released a statement saying “The Motel 6 owner owes the entire Cincinnati region an apology and termination of all employees involved in this act."

    Members of the Dayton chapter and the larger Cincinnati chapter will work together in resolving this matter.

    1. Yes send the hotel a message but first do this. See how not supporting will impact the Black employees who work there. The NAACP, in its wisdom, never did this when they recommended a boycott of South Carolina on account that notorious flag. Blacks in South Carolina have businesses. Blacks in South Carolina work for others who have businesses. The impact on how they would be able to feed and care for their families got overlooked. Cincinnati, Ohio would give the NAACP a chance to get it right this time.

    2. While I don’t know if any laws were broken it is definitely disturbing. The attempt by the employee(s) involved to intimidate and insult are disheartening. Applying your beliefs by hiding behind technology only shows your characteristics of ignorance, fear and cowardice. I feel bad for the man who saw this, he was probably looking forward to having a good time and some ‘bad apples’ were out to ruin it for him. I don’t know if boycotting Motel6 and its parent company would do any good that it could harm employees weren’t involved in this incident. Find who did it and terminate their employment. Its like one bad teacher doesn’t define the whole faculty and so on……Anyway , best wishes to that man, I hope he still had a good time.
