The Glenridge Homeowners Association told the Winston-Salem Journal the man's name is Adam Bloom and that he was the pool's chairman. Both Edwards and Bloom live in the neighborhood, according to the Journal report.

The video begins with Edwards, who says she is black, asking the man identified as Bloom, who is white, if there is an ordinance that says she has to show ID to enter the pool.

"Where does it say that I have to show an ID to use my pool, my own pool?" Edwards asks.

The man points to a sign outside the Glenridge Community Pool, but it says nothing about providing identification.

"Nobody else was asked (for) their ID," Edwards says. "I feel this is racial profiling. I'm the only black person here, with my son in the pool, right? And, he walked only to me to ask for my ID."

Coaching up the coach in swimming

  Coaching up the coach in swimming Coaching up the coach in swimmingZada Anderson, 18, is wrapping up high school. She’s due to arrive at Purdue in the fall and plans on majoring in biomedical engineering, with a minor in computer science. At her high school in Vermont she plays varsity volleyball, tennis, ice hockey. That’s just the sports organized by her high school.

The North Carolina woman filmed the incident, calling it "racial profiling at its worst.".

A white man called police on a black family at a neighbourhood pool because he didn't think they were rich enough to live in the community, it was claimed. Mr Bloom responds "All right, perfect" but he stands by his demand that Ms Edwards should show ID to prove she lives nearby.

In response, the man identified as Bloom replied that he asks for IDs a couple times per week.

One of the police officers can then be heard asking if there is a swipe card to enter the pool, to which the woman replies, "Yes ... that's how I got in."

"If she has a card to get in the pool, I believe that that should be enough," the officer says.

The man identified as Bloom then asks police to test her gate card to validate that it works, and the woman agrees to let police try it on the entrance. The light on the scanner turns green and the door unlocks, the officer says.

Even after the card opens the door, the man tells police "a form of ID would've been helpful to validate."

The woman responds, "It would be nice if you would apologize."

Bloom's attorney told the Journal another member of the pool questioned Edwards' membership before the video was taken, and that as pool chairman Bloom was doing his job. Bloom has resigned as pool chairman and as a Glenridge HOA board member after the incident, the report said.

The video comes about a week after a white woman allegedly assaulted a black teenager and told him and friends "they did not belong and they had to leave" a swimming pool in South Carolina.
