What better person to attempt to rescue another non-swimmer. In the age of equality, you don’t need any qualifications to get a job as a lifeguard.
I'm speechless sick... I suspect this national hysteria is getting toward the end... When 'officials' are being this stupid in order to discover discrimination - when it gets this frantic - the scam's about over...
Yes, we all oppose real discrimination. ( I was active in the civil rights movement in the 60's when it mattered - and was very real ) But this? This isn't based on discrimination it's based on 'can my outrage about perceived racism trump yours?" Am I a more 'guilty white' than you are? Can I hate myself more? Hand me the whip I'll use it on my back. Really, liberals would be considered sick if they weren't already so creepy.
And yeah, when real discrimination was happening in this country years ago this type of official was happily part of the 'in' group ( the racists) of his time - just like he's happily part of the 'in' group (liberal guilty white masochists) now... His type stands with whatever thug group has the power at the moment. Low class wannabee..
Yes, that blew me away too, it’s something immature teens say.
Ya Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up!!
I heard the original story on the radio Friday. Should have known you would run with it.
Thanks again for the ping.
“Public pools are largely used by Latino and African-American kids, but most of the lifeguards are white and this creates a huge problem. “
Darwin Awards by proxy.
That's pretty good, but I think a Darwin Award has to be earned by the person who receives it. It's not like a Nobel Prize.
All I can say is this. If I am drowning..somebody please help me. I don't care about your ethnicity. You can be from Mars for all I care..as long as you can swim. I don't care what language you speak. I don't really think we will be having a conversation if I am drowning.
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.
