Wow, I Feel For These Kids; But In America We Frown On Racism (Against Non-Whites) & This Isn’t Typical

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
I feel for these kids, who were apparently turned away from The Valley Swim Club’s swimming pool because they are Black. In the hot summer sun, their day camp, Creative Steps Day Camp, paid almost two thousand dollars to swim there, and to kick them out for their race is wrong, not to mention extremely low-class. (We don’t know for sure if the mainstream media news report is accurate and whether we have the full story, but it appears likely, since the club isn’t talking beyond its “complexion” statement–see below.)
But it’s important to remember that while racism and bigotry will always exist everywhere on earth, in America it’s rare, on the fringe, and generally frowned upon by most Americans (who are mostly fair and decent unlike elsewhere around the world). And this club will take the heat, of which this bad publicity and news report are just the start. I’m sure this club will be the subject of lawsuits, as it should be for violating a valid contract it had with the kids’ day camp, and lots of news reports. I’m sure many mainstream media figures are booking their post-Michael Jackson memorial service plane tickets straight for Philadelphia.


Yes, a private club in America has a right to discriminate. There are country clubs a mile from my residence where I’m not wanted because Jews can’t be members (and I wouldn’t want to be). That’s their right. But that doesn’t mean it’s not extremely low-class. It is. And if you make a contract to allow kids to swim there, you must abide by the contract. To kick these kids out because of their complexion, that’s just sickening. And I know most Americans agree with my assessment.
The sad part of this is isn’t just the undue bigotry against the kids. They’ll get their redress in some way, and hopefully their parents will have the good sense not to turn this into an “America is racist” lesson. It’s that this very untypical, unAmerican experience will be cited and used–as such rare examples always are–not just by the professional race merchants such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton (who are probably also already booking their plane tickets to Philly), but by our enemies, particularly of the Muslim variety, who will shove it in our faces whenever we cite their frequent religious and state human rights abuses.
Yes, this incident is fuel for the appetite of all of the malefactors within–and without–America.
**** UPDATE: A friend of mine writes:

Yes..kids should not have to deal with inequalities of the past, and this incident is certainly ugly.
Just as ugly as the [discrimination against the White] CT firefighters, and just as offensive as the ‘diverse’ C & D students recently admitted to Annapolis. Reminds me of a Bob Dylan song: “A self-ordained professor’s tongue, too serious to fool, spouted out that liberty is just equality in school”.

Exactly. In most of America, anti-Black racism is not tolerated today. But anti-White racism?

And we have a right to boycott anyone or anything business that has anything to do with such a place.

Bullfeathers! So, tell me why these little darlings don’t have a pool where they come from? I suspect the same reason that since 1967 the Blacks in the City of Detroit made it a cesspool and it always will be a cesspool. Black + Democrat = Doomed. They’re like locust. And now that they’ve got nothing left to loot, anywhere to shop and no schools worth a shit in Detroit, they’ve invaded Dearbornistan. Much easier than cleaning one’s own backyard isn’t it.
Jesus H Christ what is so hard to understand?
No sympathy from me. I’d yank my kids out of the pool too.
[WD: NORMALLY, I'D DELETE A COMMENT LIKE THIS. BUT I THINK THAT WORRY01 ANSWERED YOU QUITE WELL, AND I AGREE WITH WORRY01'S RESPONSE COMPLETELY. THESE ARE JUST INNOCENT YOUNG KIDS. DS]

West Dearbornistan:
I think you have forgotten just a few things in your post. For one thing, Creative Steps Day Camp paid $2000 to use The Valley Swim Club’s facilities. This was in no way some invasion of gangbangers or thugs, but a bought and paid for use of a swimming pool by a day camp. The club voided its right to privately discriminate against this black group by publicly offering the right to use the club’s pool to anyone, not just members, who were willing to pay the fee. At that point, when the club discriminated against the day camp group for racil reasons, it was in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Bringing up the Detroit. Trying to tie in Philadelphia based Creative Steps Day Camp with what is happening in Detroit and Dearborn is a grotesque stretch. If you feel that blacks or other minorities do not have the same rights as you do to public accomodations, there are websites that will cater to such prejudices. This is not one of them. People such as yourself keep the Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and others of their ilk in business with your very inflamatory remarks. Segregationists were not legitimate conservatives in the past, nor are they now.

Worry01 on July 8, 2009 at 3:27 pm

West Dearbornistan, the village idiot at DS. Those kids already paid to be there. It doesn’t matter if they have a pool closer by. The club offered the services and The Valley Swim Club paid for them. This is America 2009 not 1959.

That’s a great example of how them-there “Red States” like to discrimin… Whooops! This happened in Philadelphia, PA (PA-Blue State Proud!), right?! Not, Philadelphia, MS… If i’m reading this correctly. Then again, why should this come as any surprise!!?! Isn’t this the same place where those Jack-Booted, Baton-Wielding, Black Panther Thugs stood guard to intimidate Whitey on election day?!

Eric Holder refuses to prosecute them even though at least one 1960′s activist claimed what these thugs did in 2008 Philadelphia was the worst form of voter intimidation he had ever seen.

i_am_me on July 8, 2009 at 4:09 pm

Worry01 & Norman Blitzer,
I never said anything about Creative Steps Day Camp did I? I’m talking directly about Valley Swim Club. They clearly screwed their members who don’t want Blacks around them at their club. As I said, I’d yank my kids from the pool too. Never mentioned anything about throwing the Blacks out did I? Thought so.
Matter of fact, I’m handling The Henry Ford the same way, which its IMAX Theater continues to run Journey to Mecca… well; they’ve lost me as a member. The Henry Ford has violated their mission statement, “The Henry Ford provides unique educational experiences based on authentic objects, stories, and lives from America’s traditions of ingenuity, resourcefulness and innovation. Our purpose is to inspire people to learn from these traditions to help shape a better future.”
America’s traditions aren’t in Saudi Arabia. Piss on them, just as some members will do the same with Valley Swim Club. Nowhere that I recall is it written that I must like anyone for whatever the reason.
As for, “If you feel that blacks or other minorities do not have the same rights as you do to public accomodations, there are websites that will cater to such prejudices. This is not one of them.”
Riiiiiight. Get over yourself comment monitor.
Oh, and Worry01, my remarks are spot on about Detroit.

West Dearbornistan on July 8, 2009 at 4:10 pm

I feel sorry for the kids for being exposed to blatant racism and low-class . But there’s something off-kilter about the whole incident, it could have been avoided in the first place. First question came to mind was did the people from Creative Steps Day Camp previously called or visited the Valley Swim Club and inquired about having the kids from the day camp coming to use the private swimming pool? Did the Valley Swim Club people asked the people from Creative Steps Day Camp about what kind of kids they have?
Since the Valley Swim Club is a private club, they have the right to know who and what kind of people they would admit in to use the club’s pool, in spite the club offers open membership. I don’t know if this is a failure on the private swim club for not querying the CSDC or the CSDC people for not clarifying or sharing with the private club about the kind of kids they have before paying for it. Perhaps both sides has a failure of communication? I checked GoogleMaps for other swim clubs in Philadelphia and there are several swim clubs around the area. Did the CSDC picked out the Valley Swim Club only or did they called around other places?
I would await further updates about the story, since I don’t trust the media’s tendency to raise sensationalist news about anything racist of that nature, jumping to wild conclusions and counting on people’s ignorance of the actual facts.

Bobby's Brain on July 8, 2009 at 5:17 pm

It’s been pointed out that this area of Philadelphia is horribly gang-ridden and has a lot of youth black-on-white violence.
While it’s still low-class, I understand why the white kids did not feel safe and why they are reported to have unanimously left the pool when the sixty black kids from Creative Steps Day Camp arrived. Maybe they were all vetted, maybe they were all good kids, maybe they all just wanted to have fun and be kids, but in Philadelphia, that’s sadly dangerous.

Sorry, if you are not referring to the kids from the day camp, who are you referring to?
Also, in you subsequent responses, you bury yourself even more: “I’m talking directly about Valley Swim Club. They clearly screwed their members who don’t want Blacks around them at their club. As I said, I’d yank my kids from the pool too. Never mentioned anything about throwing the Blacks out did I? Thought so.”
You contradict yourself between posts and even within them. Before you jump out with an immediate response, you may wish to think about the whole matter just a bit. Even this website’s owner has made it clear that your posts are well over the line. This site does not have a racial agenda, and it is not a suitable place for those who do. If you believe that racial segregation is an appropriate public policy option, which you pretty clearly do, you really are in the wrong place.

Yes, the day camp signed a contract and paid the club $2000. Also, what sort of questions would you have asked, if you had been the club? Would you have even bothered to ask a white or asian day camp the same questions? If not, why? The private club opened the door by opening use to its facilities to the public. If this club wished to avoid such exposure, it could have simply avoided trying to make money off of the general public through the use of its facilities. I have no sympathy for Islamists who pull similar nonsense, so why should I feel sorry for an explicitly racist club?

Sorry, but there’s no contradiction on my end ‘ole great crusader of the keyboard. This is no different from anything else on the planet, if I donÔø?t like something I don’t buy it period.
You can play all the games trying to manipulate what I wrote as much as you want. There is no “If you believe that racial segregation is an appropriate public policy option, which you pretty clearly do,”. I stated that I would’ve yanked my kids = that means I would leave. I believe that is still a freedom in America. In other words, what I do is really a nonissue when looking back on alleged white flight from Detroit especially when viewing what a success it is today. Is it that my not being there is the problem?
Still no sympathy and no apologies from me. You still won’t change what I believe nor will anyone ever legislate one liking another.
I wish you well.

West Dearbornistan on July 8, 2009 at 8:50 pm

Hi Debbie,
I have never been in a pool big enough for sixty-five children to play in comfortably.
65 is a lot. And in some interviews I have seen, the ages of the children interviewed were 14 and 11. So this is 65 children at about the age of puberty.
I can’t imagine how such a large group of adolescents arriving from out of town would not upset the local club members, no matter what the race.
But I am not denying there may have been a racial element.

Perpetua on July 8, 2009 at 8:56 pm

Yawn. Tired of hearing people cry the blues. It happens everyday, everywhere. So what, who cares? Victims=Losers!! Democrats the party of losers!! Blacks are free to be racists and when one incident happens against them, it is Rosa Parks all over again. I ain’t falling for it.
Rules to live by:
1. Assume some people will hate you no matter what. Skin color, race, religion, etc.
2. Assume that no one will give you anything in life. You must earn everything you want or need.
3. Assume no one will protect you in life. Someone might attack for whatever reason.
When you assume these rules in life, then understand that when these incidents occur they will not deter you. These are the facts of life. There are other people to meet in life. Dont dwell on those that hate you. Don’t allow yourself to be a victim.
So the right response for these kids is for their parents to say “We will build our own pool and we don’t need shit from you.” Oh that won’t happen because these kids are victims now, and now they need society’s sympathy and checkbook please.

californiascreaming on July 8, 2009 at 9:25 pm

Debbie, no doubt the club stepped it in here. They should have let the kids swim, called up the group afterwards, and refunded the money. On the other hand if I were at a private pool and 65 teens showed up I’d have an adrenaline rush, too. Sorry to say, it’s not stictly racist to fear American blacks, it’s about survival.

If what you’re saying is true, then the pool owners are wrong, and those kids are being mistreated.
But, we’re going to see lots more of this type of story in an attempt to prop up the Obama template notion that America is still very evil and racist.

Yiddish Steel on July 9, 2009 at 12:16 am

the private club may have not known that it was renting out to a black camp. Yes they didn’t handle it well but if it is a private club then it is up to them. But of course racism is applied to this immediately.
But what about this case:
Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted ”This is our world” and ”This is a black world” as they confronted Marshall and his family.
The Marshalls, who are white, say the crowd of teens who attacked them and two friends June 27 on Girard Street numbered close to 50. The teens were all black.
Akron police are investigating. Right now, the case is not being classified as a racial hate crime.
http://www.ohio.com/news/50172282.html
So this case has to be investigated and then thought about before being called racist.
So goes the race card double standard. Did the white devils at the pool assault the black children? No, they asked them to leave and refunded their money as they realized they had made a mistake, according to their private club rules.
Now you should also think, did the day camp purposefully hide the fact who they were so they could get in to the private pool and show who is boss. Basically create this situation and play their victim card, as the muslims do who want their own private pools to swim for allah with out the dirty infidel.

Yep, I’m the guy who’d be first in line booting the white guy in the ass in Jamestown for trading sandwiches for farm equipment. It was a bad deal then and it is paying back in dividends to this day.
Not a hate crime in Akron, Ohio? “Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted “This is our world” and “This is a black world” as they confronted Marshall and his family.”

So, does this also apply to white “victims” of affirmative action, racial preferences, and quotas? Oh, no, those are legitimate victims who deserve sympathy, support and the full power of the massive government to advocate for them to give them their redress.
And it is hilarious that so many people are accusing Creative Steps Day Camp of setting these segregationists up. Do you have the same sympathy when the police set up drug dealers? Or for that matter Islamic terrorists, such as those guys in New York who were approached by an FBI agent at a mosque, had the FBI agent string them along and encourage them on jihad for months and give them all sorts of supplies and then arrest them? You know who funds stuff like that … your tax dollars at work! But with that, you are fine. But in this case you want to scream “setup!”?
Look, this may be a private club, but when they open their facilities to the public on a fee paying basis, that makes them a public accommodation and subject to the very same civil rights laws that conservatives use as your basis for opposing affirmative action.
Asking “why didn’t they choose another swimming pool”, please. Why didn’t all these white people who sued over not getting into colleges because of affirmative action just go to other colleges? Why didn’t these white firefighters in New Haven who were discriminated against just go become policemen or (gasp!) social workers?
And as for “did the day camp tell the private club what type of kids they have or did the private club ask” … what part of THOSE TYPES OF QUESTIONS ARE ILLEGAL don’t you understand? If you open your facilities to the public on a fee based basis, you have to accept whoever comes! That is the law! So had this club asked the day camp these questions and then declined, they would have still been violation of the law, and still subject to criminal penalties. What’s the matter? I thought good “law and order conservatives” supported enforcing the law and punishing criminals! Or is it just “some laws” that you want to see enforced and “some criminals” that you want to see punished?
And this nonsense about “well you know black on white violence is high in Philadelphia so these people were right to be scared” is just stuff right out of “Birth of A Nation” where the Ku Klux Klan was justified because doggone it those Negroes don’t act right. And it is also not “conservative” either. We are supposed to judge people as individuals, remember? The content of their character and not the color of their skin? So, if it is OK to jump out of a pool that black kids get into because of what some other black kids did, does that make it ok to impose racial quotas and preferences on colleges and workplaces that do not discriminate just because other colleges and workplaces discriminate?
Now I do agree that there is a double standard, that white racists get treated for worse than black racists. But are you going to hold every single black person on the planet responsible for that fact? Using the existence of reverse racist double standards to give you an excuse for hating and bashing black people is still – guess what – hating and bashing black people. If it wasn’t affirmative action, reverse racism, the Democrats, the liberal media etc. then you’d find something else because the problem isn’t reverse racism, it is the hate in your heart. Again, go back to the Jim Crow south, or for that matter the de facto segregated north … Chicago and Boston were as segregated as Mississippi if not more so. It wasn’t affirmative action or quotas or the liberal media or civil rights leaders that provoked racism in otherwise good hearts. Those people were hateful, period. A hateful heart is a hateful heart, no matter what or how you justify it.
Does the same go for blacks? Of course! Hatred is wrong. A hateful black or Hispanic or Arab is just as bad as a hateful white person. The problem is that too many “conservatives” bend over backwards to justify or contextualize white hate while condemning nonwhite hate. The truth is that there is no difference between Sean Hannity and Jesse Jackson, no difference between Rush Limbaugh and Al Sharpton, and no difference between those black Obama voters and the folks defending the swim club and attacking the day camp.
Seriously, you folks saying “why didn’t they go to another pool” and “what was the motives/funding of the day camp” sound like you are merely upset that this day camp started all this trouble because they “don’t know their place”, as if it is their lot in life to bend over backwards to avoid offending the sensitivities of segregationists or something. Well, hey, America is a free country, and segregationists do have rights, and I respect the rights of segregationists. But segregationists have to follow the law like everybody else. These particular segregationists broke the law. I know that you folks would just LOVE for this day camp to be connected with ACORN as part of some Obama plot to distract attention from his failed economic policies. But hey, guess what … just like the New York Muslim terrorists who were obviously baited by the FBI, they still broke the law. Period.
Of course, I am not trying to draw some sort of legal or moral equivalence between mere segregationists and violent criminal terrorists. I am fully aware that this club is like the vast majority of segregationists aren’t criminally inclined and wouldn’t harm a fly. But then again, your average affirmative action supporting NAACP member is the same: not criminally inclined and aren’t trying to hurt anybody. I just oppose “conservatives” who prefer segregationists to NAACP members and defend the double standard.

If I was a private club official, I would be asking an organization like the CSDC about how many of these kids are coming, what kind of kids they are (are they disabled or special need kids? How many girls? How many boys? Where they are from, outside or inside Philadelphia? How old they are?). If CSDC has provide these proper information to me, I would find ways to see if I can accommodate them on a specific day so there would be no conflict or problem with them using our club’s swimming pool. We have club rules and regulations to adhere to and we are within our rights to terminate any contract/deal at anytime we deem necessary or we have the right to deny anyone we think they may not be appropriate for our club.
So my position about a possible failure of communication between the private club and the CSDC still stand.

Bobby's Brain on July 9, 2009 at 3:33 pm

Facts is facts, healtheland. It is smart in Philadelphia for the white kids to get out of the pool when sixty-five excited teenage black kids run in, the same way it is smart to look both ways before crossing the street.
I wish it was different, and I wish cooler heads had prevailed. This could have been handled a thousand different better ways with just a little forethought, and it could have been a beautiful thing. But it was not.

luagha on July 9, 2009 at 4:17 pm

Healtheland. I say Yawn, because all what this day camp is doing is already illegal. We have laws on the books against discrimination. So they have legal recourse. The Day Camp will have to answer to this in court. This has been settled. The liberal media and you still believe institutionalized racism exists. Sorry but civil rights laws have been passed. Yawn, because they will be penalized or punished. What you GUILTERS want me to do is feel guilt. NO I WONT!! You want me to believe that these wrongs are in the law. The laws of protection have been written. People make up society and people are flawed. Guess what, look outside your window, people will do unjust things to each other everyday. I know it will happen. I am not going to cry, bitch, scream and moan that some people are unjust. I was taught that by my father. That is why I live by these rules. There are no guarantees in life. You don’t have a lawyer by your side everywhere you go. Get over it!! Some people don’t like me. Guess I don’t want to be near them.
“So, does this also apply to white “victims” of affirmative action, racial preferences, and quotas?” This is institutionalized racism. I am not white and would benefit from affirmative action, affirmative action is wrong and I don’t want it. This all crap to make me as a Hispanic believe I am entitled to lower standards and not be judged equally. I am not a coward who wants to judged with lower standards. Liberals insult everyone with this notion. Martin Luther King wanted to be judged equally by the content of their character.
This kids were wronged and have recourse. Laws are on the books. Liberals want me to believe we are all guilty of this action. NO WE AREN’T!! Yawn!!

This is great. I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is…..
Proud to be White
Michael Richards makes his point……………
Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TV’s Seinfeld does make a good point.
This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. He makes some very interesting points…
Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this? There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me ‘White boy,’ ‘Cracker,’ ‘Honkey,’ ‘Whitey,’ ‘Caveman’… and that’s OK..
But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink…You call me a racist.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you… so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.. You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah. You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP. You have BET…. If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we’d be racists. If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists..
If we had White History Month, we’d be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to ‘advance’ OUR lives, we’d be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that??
A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships… You know we’d be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US.. Yet if there were ‘White colleges’, that would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you’re not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.
You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
I am proud….. But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists??
There is nothing improper about this e-mail.. Let’s see which of you are proud enough to send it on. I sadly don’t think many will.. That’s why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country. We won’t stand up for ourselves!
BE PROUD TO BE WHITE!
It’s not a crime YET… but getting very close!

“That’s why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country. We won’t stand up for ourselves!”
No, you have lost most of your rights in this country because of liberal white politicians who were elected by – gasp! – other white people. You have lost most of your rights in this country because of an educational system that is run by – gasp! – liberal white people. And you have lost most of your rights in this country because you patronize an entertainment complex (movies, TV, popular music) that is run by – gasp! – liberal white people. Lest you forget, white people invented liberalism. Marx, Freud, Stalin, Lenin, Margaret Sanger … all white. And the political takeover by liberalism in Europe and its creeping success in America is because white people want it. White people loved MediCare, Social Security, and the rest of the New Deal. New Deal Democrats ran this country with an iron fist from Roosevelt until Reagan (with their biggest supporters being segregationist whites in the south and midwest!) and the only reason why they lost power was because they went from being New Deal Democrats to being ACLU Democrats.
So this country wasn’t stolen from white people. It was given away from one group of white people to another group of white people. Instead of facing those facts, you and your ilk would rather believe the “conservative” propaganda nonsense about how some secret cabal of Ivy League radicals and media elites stole your country from you in the middle of the night while you were sleeping along with their Negro buddies. You prefer to believe that because you can’t handle the truth: whites were too cheap to pull their kids out of free public schools when those schools started veering left and pay to send them to private or parochial ones. Whites never opposed Social Security or MediCare because they loved the convenience of sticking grandma and grandpa into nursing homes – excuse me “senior citizen assisted living facilities” rather than taking care of them. And white parents were so self-absorbed and selfish that they refused to stand up to their own kids to stop them from listening to heavy metal and punk rock music (which was corrupting white middle and working class culture long before rap music existed), stop taking them to the Hollywood trash movies, and stop allowing MTV and video games to play babysitter.
So ohboyohboy, if you want to blame someone for throwing your country away, you need to start by looking in the mirror.

Ever notice some stories get legs and some are IGNORED?
This story reminds me of the white couple that was kidnapped, raped, tortured and killed by four blacks in Knoxville Tennessee around the same time as the Duke Lacrosse team was being railroaded by the justice bros. Check out the Drudge Report for this hate crime.http://www.ohio.com/news/50172282.html

FORGET the race card. It’s overplayed. When 65 (count them – 65 “kids”) 11-13 year olds are bussed out of their own neighborhood to infiltrate a small neighborhood public pool, they just CANNOT be accommodated – period! REMEMBER THIS: the pool was already integrated; the bus was not. The pool had many minority children already swimming, but the bus did not have one white kid on it. So, my friend, who are the racists? Certainly not the pool kids. The people in charge of the pool should have set a limit as to how many kids from other neighborhoods could crash the pool on any given day. Apparently, they’re choking on the race cards pushed down their throats by our biased, inaccurate and irresponsible media. I certainly expect you, Ms Schlussel, to dig further before writing this piece.
