'-=[Ranek=-;4945590']And as for the point about 'you know how much a pool can hold' there could be many reasons why they were overcrowded, just because they're of a different ethnic background, suddenly its a huge race issue, yet, I can bet, if those kids had been white, and had been turned away, there would be no news article about it, there would be no 'incident' so why suddenly when it's an ethnic minority does it make such a 'disgrace'?

It wasn't white people that were turned away though. We'll never know what would've happened had it been. But the people that like to see the worst in everything cry racist any chance they get. That doesn't mean it was racist. But it doesn't mean it wasn't. There's really know way we could know without having been there.

'-=[Ranek=-;4945590']So, because, in a place where it's 'overwhelmingly white' people, its suddenly racist to ask why black people are there?

1. You don't know HOW that phrase was said. 2. Just because it refers to them as 'black' does not make it a racist term, it all depends on how it was said. 3. this article is OBVIOUSLY trying to make it out as racist.

And as for the point about 'you know how much a pool can hold' there could be many reasons why they were overcrowded, just because they're of a different ethnic background, suddenly its a huge race issue, yet, I can bet, if those kids had been white, and had been turned away, there would be no news article about it, there would be no 'incident' so why suddenly when it's an ethnic minority does it make such a 'disgrace'?

It was racism, don't be naive.

Adding a video in case people can't bother to read:

1. 0:12, mentioning one member's comments about "all these black kids...I'm scared they might do something to my child."

2. Comments from John Duesler saying that the kids would change the "complexion" of the club.

3. The area of the club: predominantly white, suburban Philadelphia, with a large group of black kids coming to a private swim club. That is just asking for conflict.

4. Probably most important point here: Do you honestly think that if the kids were being rowdy, that would be the reason why they were kicked out?

The fact is, they made prior arrangements to host a large group (mainly kids), so they knew exactly what kind of thing could happen. When they showed up, the members that were there apparently got angry at these kids showing up. Instead of complaining about the noise level, I am sure they complained about their race. When a club's membership complains about something like that, the club is going to reflect their member's opinions and kick the kids out.

That's nice of you to post the video for us lazy bastards that aren't willing to read. I'm fairly convinced it was racism now. But I've lost interest in this for now.

Well, what if that person had bad experiences with black people before?

Im not gonna lie if I see more than 3 black people about my age walking opposite my direction on a sidewalk at 9 PM as I walk home from seeing a movie, I keep my guard up.

And damn good reason for doing so, because in my experiences, 3 black guys together at that time of night is not good news. Always arrests near my place because some black people decided to jump 2 or 3 white people and steal cell phones and wallets.

So, Im not condoning this behavior of turning away the kids just because they were black, but as far as parents being concerned for the welfare of their children, you dont know what experiences the parents have had.

The club shouldnt have turned them away tho.

Afterburner;4944280 I'm beginning to think you don't actually even personally know any Catholics. [/QUOTE] I went to catholic school, and associate with them still, if only to laugh and debate.

What do they say about assumptions?

[QUOTE=Anlushac11;4944288]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'm strongly opposed to all religions, mainstream or not. Prejudice is the prevention of%2

There is a world of difference between a couple black guys roaming the street at night and a group of supervised kids in pure daylight going to a swimming pool.

if i see a couple of guys roaming the streets at 9pm im on guard regardless of their race. Your more likely to get murdered/mugged by someone of the same race incidentally.

'-=[Ranek=-;4945168'] England has a big issue with things like this with the Middle eastern communities, they expect some special treatment, and anything said against them, is either an attack on there religion, or an attack on there race, granted, not all are like this, but there is a small minority who believe we should give them preferential treatment.

They try to make their religion into a "race" which it is not. Funny thing is, so many people actually now think this too. Its not a race at all, anyone can convert to or convert from (if they dare and are ready for the worst) it.

Yea I believe I said that the club shouldnt have turned them away, I was just saying the parents may have been on edge because they had bad experiences before.
