awww...poor poor little black folks had their rights taken away. Perhaps they should have thought about that before they voted to strip the rights away from gays.

Now excuse me but I am going swimming...and sorry...no blacks allowed....

being black is a choice!!!

look at Michael Jackson.

he KNEW being black was a choice so he CHANGED...just like the blacks say gays can change..so do I feel sorry for them NO.

now you try to stay cool while you are sittin on that hot asphalt watchin me swim....lol

maybe next time you will think about equal rights for EVERYONE before you vote.

I am only sorry that for years I fought for blacks to have the same rights as me..only to be stabbed in the back by them once they got them.

never again...never again.

Why is this news? Why don't we hear about the tens of thousand of rapes, robberies, and murders done by blacks against Whites? I'll tell you why, the NAACP and Al Sharptons need to create an illusion of racism to con and hustle the American people. The black gravy train is fueled by allegations of racism, be they real, exaggerated, or a comple lie.

Wow! Some of you guys really sound racist. Maybe because you were the ones at the pool making those comments to the kids! Very ignorant! Racism is alive and well in PA.

I doubt they are PURPOSELY done because they are white.
While these young children were turned away by ADULTS(who should know better) because they are black.

In the new Obama Nation attacks by blacks against whites are not important and certainly never, ever a hate crime.

How would you know? You can't possibly know the motives of all those black criminals who attack white people. However, something tells me that if thousands of blacks were getting robbed. raped, and murdered by whites you would be screaming racism.

Great news! The senate has Passed the Matthew Shepard Hate crimes bill!

The bill will soon be on its way to President Obama's desk, where he'll get a chance to make good on his promise to sign it.

This vote came on the heels of tremendous pressure from radical right-wing groups that used every trick in the book.

They called the bill the "Pedophile Protection Act," among other outrageous claims. They dismissed the barbaric hate crime that took Matthew Shepard's life as a "hoax." They flooded the Senate with hundreds of thousands of letters and calls.

But your calls, emails, and financial support for our work helped make sure the truth prevailed in the end. Without you, this victory for equal rights would not have been possible.
