Is the Associated Press implying that swimming pools are racist?

swimmingpools


Well, if air can be racist and climate change can be racist, I guess water can be too, right?

Anybody else see a Jesse Jackson shakedown of the pool industry on the horizon?

Update:

It occurred to me as I was driving to the store a while ago that the one thing we never read the MSM saying disproportionately kills minorities are abortion clinics. Wonder why that is?

    If Ted Kennedy were still around, he could give them swimming lessons.

  2. Doug on May 16th, 2014 1:10 pm

    Better that than driving lessons I suppose.

    "The racial differences were smaller for drownings in lakes or other bodies of water. Experts think that's because relatively few blacks go boating or participate in other water activities"

    On its surface, the statement appears to make sense. Firstly, swimming is swimming and boating is generally boating. Many boaters head out from the pier and never dip a TOE in the water. Not sure what they're driving at here?

    Aside from the CDC needing a desperate RE-focusing on their priorities.., this is just another "food desert" in disguise. Thrust being billions must be spent on inner city pools and swim lessons until… well until the day that never comes.

    Kennedy never saw a body of water that didn't need an Oldsmobile in it.

    So the AP is now going to continue the stereotype that blacks predominately don't know how to swim. Wouldn't that make the AP racist?

    "Anybody else see a Jesse Jackson shakedown of the pool industry on the horizon?"

    Either that or a bunch of Dear Leaders donors own commercial swimming pools and are looking for "taxpayer subsidized minority swimming lessons".

    TS,

    OT but have you seen the new "TSGLI" that might have popped up on your paystubs? Only caught it this past month but upon looking into it, this has all the earmarks of simply giving [disabled] Vets a one-time/lump sum BUY OUT vice ongoing care!

    Natch it's very tidy, loss of vision in [both] eyes.., $50,000. ( Loss of one eye, $25,000 ) They're writing it like an AD&D ( Accidental Death & Dismemberment ) type policy. Like everything this Administration does, they're doing us a favor.

    Have you seen this?

    {Further OT]

    In looking into Mrs. Will's job being offshored to Mexico by the O'dumbleScare, dimwit has a "trade agreement" in the works that will make NAFTA look tame in comparison. He's calling it the TPP ( Trans-Pacific Partnership )

    Again w/ the investments/partnership thing! Guys, even DIM'S are b!tching about it. It's terms ( little of which appears to have anything to do w/ 'trade' ) and everything to do w/ copyright protection etc. is being neg. in near total secrecy. Even WikiLeaks is all over it.

    Fauxcahontas and Oregon's Ron Wyden are taking exception to the whole "Fast Track" (read cattle prodding) of this thing and like I say, it's got hardcore Dim supporters totally miffed. This could be another arrow for the upcoming mid-terms!

    I hadn't seen it, but it does not surprise me. It reminds me of when I was medically discharged from the Army. They gave me what they called a "lump sum severance pay" no choice you had to take it and by getting it you cannot claim unemployment. The only problem is it is not a severance pay, but a no interest loan on your VA disability check.

    So once you finally wade through the years of red tape and get your VA disability you find out that they subtract a portion of the disability check to pay back the "severance pay" you were forced to take in the first place. I am not sure when they started doing it this way (it was either during the Clinton of Bush years).

    Just imagine if some business tried that tactic.

    Just more proof that Dear Leader sees himself as the Grand Poobah instead of POTUS.

    It is kind of ironic when you think about it. He will stop a Trans Continental Pipeline that will actually help with energy independence and create jobs, but he will fast track a Trans Pacific Partnership that sends more jobs overseas among other things.

    Glad to hear that many a dem is starting to wake up to the false messiah they created.

    TS Dims are not waking up to issues that will help the American people – they only see poll numbers and it ain't pretty. They will do whatever it takes to save their azzes from losing in mid-terms.

  13. backwoodsconservative on May 17th, 2014 10:22 am

    Far too many of the Republicans are focusing on poll numbers and not on what's good for this country. Apparently the Republican party wants to commit suicide by amnesty.

  14. Doug on May 17th, 2014 12:23 pm

    Al Sharpton's solution to the problem will probably be to call for fewer white kids being taught to swim in order to equalize the stats.

  15. Marshall_Will on May 17th, 2014 12:29 pm

    Thing IS: ( virtually *anybody* can go out in the street and purchase a ridiculously CHEAP Accidental Death & Dismemberment policy..! )

    Oh wait.., you're a fighter pilot..? Uh.., that's gonna' RUN ya'? You um, do "underwater demolition"? What can POSSIBLY go 'wrong'? Yeah, something's afoot here.

    Had no idea that's how a severance 'package' worked. Sleeves from the VEST anyone..?

  16. Marshall_Will on May 17th, 2014 12:35 pm

    The future of the PLANET, swinging in the balance and uh.., let's play the REBOUND! We can um. tit-fer-TAT and git some o' *our* ( crony legislation ) pushed thru off the negative voter sentiment so..?

    Ain't politics FUN?

    Yeah, utterly clueless. Utterly FRUSTRATING. They've no clue any 'support' they're getting is nothing more than a necessary evil until actual conservatives can regain enough a toehold to launch a major counter offensive.

  17. Marshall_Will on May 17th, 2014 12:42 pm

    Because there simply isn't 'enough' cheap LABOR ( for an ever dwindling # of JOBS ) to go around!? Right, got to keep the 47%-to- Working American – Ratio at fever pitch or these people might just tune us out altogether..?

    That way [once] you complete your 8-hour-shift you can come home to work the phones in some vain effort to de-seat your local Dimorogue in order to keep your NEXT 8-hour-shift. Works perfectly.

    I would like more information on how the drowning occurred less than for blacks. I will follow news updates.

  19. Loola on May 18th, 2014 2:21 am

    I think the state of racism should be eliminated us all.
