Just yesterday, Penny Wrenn wrote about the White woman who initiated the melee that went down at the McKinney, Texas pool party.
The incident that caused people to call the police in the first place was a fight that broke out with Tracey-Carver-Allbritton and a young African American girl. If you’ve seen the video, Allbritton is punching pulling the hair of a young girl.
According to The Daily Kos, Allbritton and another woman were confirmed to have made racist comments that led to the pool party taking a violent turn.
Though much of the attention has been directed at Officer Casebolt; after some investigation and interviews from party attendees, people started asking why the woman who was fighting wasn’t questioned by police or arrested.
Social media users did some research and found that Allbritton worked for Bank of America.
After the video surfaced, an action group Dallas Communities Organizing for Change launched a Twitter campaign asking Bank of America to take action against this woman.

And it seemed to work. Bank of America conducted a investigation and found that Allbritton works for CoreLogic a Bank of America vendor that provides financial profiles to the the larger branch before making mortgage lending decisions.
They released this statement to the Dallas News:
“CoreLogic does not condone violence, discrimination or harassment and takes conduct that is inconsistent with our values and expectations very seriously. As a result of these pending allegations, we have placed the employee in question on administrative leave while further investigations take place.”
Certainly a step in the right direction.
