Club: Racism accusations at Pa. pool untrue

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. – A suburban Philadelphia swim club accused of kicking out a group of minority children visiting from the city denies any racial discrimination.

The Valley Club in Huntingdon Valley says accusations of racism toward the Creative Steps day camp are untrue. It says it was overcrowded and returned funds to more than one camp.

Creative Steps director Alethea Wright says the camp paid for weekly swim time at the gated club, which is in a village that straddles two townships with overwhelmingly white populations. But she says on June 29 some of the children said they heard people asking what "black kids" were doing there.

:lol:

Did the white people think the black would come off like a dye and contaminate the pool?

Amazing that these types of people still exist.

According to a video on NBC10, they weren't just black kids, but also white kids.

it was wrong either way thought.

I often say the same thing about christians and catholics. Racism and religiosity go hand-in-hand. Two birds, one stone.

I laughed. Hard.

I'm beginning to think you don't actually even personally know any Catholics.

On-topic, if like Mihail says it was both black and white kids that were turned away I don't see what the problem is. If indeed it was only black kids (or just non-white kids in general) than I'd agree it's rather sad and disgusting that such blatant racism still exists, though I suppose it's not entirely surprising.

The problem with stereotypes is that they are not always true. In a way you are displaying your own prejudices to make a comment like that.

I am a Christian and I am not racist. I agree that there are a lot of ignorant racists who hide behind religion as an excuse for their actions.

My moms side of the family was taught to judge people by how they act and treat others, not by what religion and skin color.

Why do you always have to bring up religion?? No matter how right you may be; hearing about it gets old.

But on the subject of religion; why do almost all people say Christian when they mean Protestant?? This includes Catholics. Catholics are Christians too so saying "Christians and Catholics" is redundant.

And back on topic; it's not racist if they denied both blacks & whites. Unless of course they hate both races, which seems unlikely.

It seems to me one of those idiotic snooty ultra-exclusive things. There's similar problems in country clubs.

They said on TV today that their membership was revoked

The first one was already addressed. The second one:

Our church has white, black, brown and yellow people so I don't see how the two go hand and hand... unless I'm not understanding the comment.

Sedistix is like a train. He can only think in one line, cannot be derailed from it, and plows on forward beating his beliefs on anyone that gets in his way whether they care or not.

Just like many of the Christians he so often belittles.

The stereotype of the Christian does get swept around too much I think. Many times people will jump on to the bandwagon of bashing a whole group just saying Christian without even being able to differentiate between Catholics and Protestants. And even within Protestants there are different groups with slightly different beliefs and focus's such as Methodists, Baptists, and Pentecostals. Even then you have variations depending on the region.

Agreed on all points.

I have come to form stereotypes based on my experiences and accurate judgements in some cases, but as a whole I dont really. For fun and jokes I may make stereotype jokes, but I dont take many of them seriously.
