Are Cottages at Tulane violating Fair Housing Law?

I wonder if the Cottages at Tulane is violating Fair Housing Law? My reason is this. I stopped by Cottages at Tulane on Saturday, April 14th, and was greeted by a caucasian female, seated at her desk. She asked, "How can I help you?" I told her that I would like to see floorplans for apartments. She asked, "When are you looking to move in?" I told her June ??th. She then asked me, "What are you looking for?" I said, "a two bedroom." She immediately replied, "We don't have any 1 bedrooms for June, July, or August." I looked at her incredulously and replied, "I'm looking for a 2 bedroom." She averted eye contact and quickly said, "I meant 2 bedrooms, but I'll show them to you anyway." She then began to go over the the floorplans. After this, she attempted to give me her business card. I declined and asked her to write her name on the floor plans. I asked her if she was the property manager or a leasing agent. She said, "a leasing agent, the property manager will be here on Monday." She asked, "Would you like to leave me your information?" I declined, thanked her, and walked away. I believed that the leasing agent I spoke with told me that there was no availability (for the wrong size apartment) for those three months because she did not want an/another African American living at Cotttages at Tulane. I have no prior experience with these apartments. However, after twenty years of renting as a middle class, professional, African American I've become familiar with this line/these types of lines in apartment communities that are predominately caucasian. I am no longer interested in Cottages at Tulane. Former Prospective Tenant
