White couple won't sell home to African-American couple

The co-host of the Michael Baisden show filed for $100 million discrimination lawsuit against a white couple who won't sell their home to George Wilborn and his wife because they are African-American. Read more about it below.

George Wilborn, the famed co-host of the popular Michael Baisden Show, has filed a $100 million lawsuit against a Chicago couple who refused to sell him a home because of the color of his skin.

As previously reported, Wilborn and his wife were attempting to buy a $1.7 million home from Daniel and Adrienne Sabbia, a white couple.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development filed a complaint on behalf of Wilborn however after an investigator told them that Daniel Sabba declined to sign the contract because he'd "rather not sell to an African American."

Now Wilborn and his wife Peytyn have officially filed a $100 million lawsuit in federal court for the discrimination they faced trying to buy the five-bedroom home in the city's Bridgeport neighborhood.

This is just disgusting to hear about. I can't believe stuff like this still happens in the year 2010.
