EL DORADO HILLS -

Imagine moving into a new neighborhood to find out only white people are supposed to be there.

A family is pushing for change in their new neighborhood after learning about a disturbing rule that still exists there.

Cameron Foster recently moved into El Dorado Hills, California.

He was shocked when his realtor told him the community has a clause that said only white people can live there.

The subdivision is now ethnically diverse but Foster said he wants the rule off the books for good.

“I just don’t think that in this day in age that’s how things should be and I just want to set that stage for the world that my kids are going to grow up in,” Foster said.

The so-called "racial clause" was written in 1959.
