White Woman Who Instigated The McKinney Pool Fight Identified, Suspended From Job
A Twitter campaign identified one of the white women recorded punching and pulling the hair of a young black girl at the McKinney pool party as Tracey-Carver Allbritton, leading to her being suspended from her job.
The DailyKos reports that Allbritton was one of the two women recorded making racist comments and attacking a young girl.
According to the Kos, the woman, “now known as Tracey-Carver Allbritton, at first seems to be trying to break up the fight, but quickly decides to start throwing punches to the top of the younger girls head.”
After she was identified, activist group Dallas Communities Organizing for Change called for Allbritton to be reprimanded by her job at Bank of America vendor CoreLogic.

We've concluded our investigation and the woman identified is not a Bank of America employee but works with a vendor company (1/2)

The company took the Twitter campaign seriously and placed her on administrative leave.
CoreLogic also released a statement, saying, “CoreLogic does not condone violence, discrimination, or harrassment 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.”
