    Airbnb host hit with $5,000 fine for canceling on an Asian guest over her race

    An Airbnb host has been fined $5,000 for abruptly canceling on an Asian guest because of the guest's race.

    The host, Tami Barker, is now permanently barred from the home-sharing platform.

    In February, Barker canceled on Dyne Suh, who had driven through a snowstorm to Barker's cabin in Big Bear, California, with friends and two dogs.

    According to California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing, Barker told Suh in a text message, "I wouldn't rent to u if u were the last person on earth.

    "One word says it all. Asian," Barker said.

    The Airbnb host said she would "not allow this country to be told what to do by foreigners" and denied that she had given Suh permission to bring friends and dogs, despite Suh's screenshots of messages from Barker initially approving the request.

    As part of her punishment, Barker has agreed to take a course in Asian-American studies, issue a personal apology to Suh, comply with antidiscrimination laws, volunteer at a civil-rights organization, and report rental data for a period of four years, the state housing department said in a press release.

    Under California's civil-rights laws, discrimination in places of public accommodation comes with a $4,000 minimum fine, according to the DFEH.

    Barker's attorney, Edward Lee, said in a statement: "While regretful for her impetuous actions and comments made on the evening of Feb. 17, 2017, Miss Barker is pleased to have resolved her claims with Miss Dyne Suh and the DFEH in a manner that can hopefully bring a positive outcome out of an unfortunate incident."

    Airbnb recently partnered with DFEH for fair-housing tests, in which undercover DFEH staff apply to Airbnb homes in California with the aim of uncovering discrimination among hosts — an ongoing problem for Airbnb.

    "I think we were late to this issue," Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky said last year. "We were so focused on an issue of trust and keeping people safe, responding to other people's issues on trust and safety, that we took our eye off the ball."

    He added, "There are racists in the world, and we need to have zero tolerance."

    asian in the US context is Chinese looking with the surname Suh although it isn't a well known or popular Chinese surname in SG should be Su in mandarin.

    Fake news again. What the media left out is that the cheapo Asian lady change her booking last limit and want to squeeze in more people than promised.

    Race Baiting Airbnb Stories are Bullshit!

    You might want to google and see extensive details press coverage and screen prints where her request for agreed and an additional $25 per guest was imposed.

    Her surname had an usual spelling for Chinese and might have been taken as Caucasian.

    Landlord besides the fine had to compensate, write apology and take a course.

    Typical needing heart liberal BS….if a chink cries racist they'll be all over it with censure.

    If a causcasian was turned down by a racist chink, it would be business as usual.

    Chigger Jah Logic…just channelling the cunt

    Actually in singkieland where the cina a majority I do feel that the racism card portrayed by the minorities on the Southern Chinese majority is common,,,what is worse is the pappies like to play the card,,the reserved PE for muds is a good example of the racism card but played by the pappies on the chinese....
