Pool Boots Kids Who Might “Change the Complexion”
Campers sent packing after first visit to swim club
By KAREN ARAIZA
More than 60 campers from Northeast Philadelphia were turned away from a private swim club and left to wonder if their race was the reason.
“I heard this lady, she was like, ‘Uh, what are all these black kids doing here?’ She’s like, ‘I’m scared they might do something to my child,’” said camper Dymire Baylor.
The Creative Steps Day Camp paid more than $1900 to The Valley Swim Club. The Valley Swim Club is a private club that advertises open membership. But the campers’ first visit to the pool suggested otherwise.
If accurate (and who amongst us really trusts the press these days?), this is clearly outrageous. Such blatant racism has no place.
An insinuation that this was, of course, those nasty Republicans inspired me to do some research…
First up, a search for “Valley+Swim+Club+PA” which yielded a link to this handy site. From there I had a street address, but more importantly, a City. Next search: “Huntingdon+Valley+PA+county” which yields Montgomery County. Next stop, The Tired Gray Crone’s Election Map 2008 for Pennsylvania. Montgomery County is just Northwest of Philadelphia.
Turns out that county went for Obama by 54.7% and is one of the bluest of blue counties in PA.
How about them limousine liberals!
