So is this for real?
Lifeguards that can’t swim, cause some just have to be (insert “minority” group)?
As my comment explained why, I would expect that a pool that knowingly employed lifeguards who couldn't swim would be shutdown fast with $$$$ lawsuits at the first accident.
In Maryland my favorite swimming hole (100 years old in business) was closed by a lawsuit $$$ because someone drowned in spite of the 'swim at your own risk' signs.
Maybe this would work if they were put in the shallow end and were red bathing caps. They could wade to the victim.
In fact, our town hires minority blind guys to drive the garbage trucks and minority quadriplegics to hang onto the rear of the trucks between dumps of the garbage cans into the hoppers.
