So it goes that some of the black children were mis behaving very badly! If it is a private club what the hell were they doing there!!!!
In our wonderful state we have private clubs do to crime etc. That is the way it is!!!! Many hispanic and black children have diseases and are not clean.They use fowl language, fight etc. We will not expose our children to that kind of behavior. We have a right to protect our children and we always will!!! Thats why it is PRIVATE. Don't like the rules form your own organization.

That is the black thing.... always portraying it as black skin ... when it never was ... It is about different cultures.
african americans are so racist. They will castigate and shun a black who "acts white" in even the best ways ... as in being a studious student ... and then turn right around an claim it is about skin color.
Blacks are the racists ... not whites.
My daughter's best friend in middle and high school was a black girl.Dion was picked on and at times tormented for "acting white" because she had a white friend and was a serious student.Dion blossomed into an outstanding young black woman.She is successful.Her tormenters are in Section 8.

What is "acting white"? Is that some kind of franchise you're selling, or something?

So, did this Dion blossom into an outstanding young black woman, because of her brain power, or because of this phenomenon called "acting white"?

What exactly are you giving her "credit" for?

Well so much for black folks. better look at the white lilies of pedophiles, human sex taffickers, finincial crimes and God the druggies and all the little w gals who have 5 and 6 abortions. Never call anyone but human. that's is what we are and God will judge us the same. PA I was raised there, in the 60' you have not grown at all... shame on you and yur kids will go to college and marry other "colored folks" lol Close the pool

I would agree. The way our country is today, you must protect your children as much as possible.
Diversity has never worked. Our prison system has proved that. We have northern states that are joining our Southern Alliance a christian organization for European Americans.
We do not believe in mistreating anyone. As our great Southern President said" All we ask is to be left alone" quoted Jefferson Davis. The black race has a different culture, not one that we care to be a part of! God made us all different which is real easy to understand and abide by!

You know, I find your ignorance disgusting. It's your kind that give Christians a bad name. Last time I looked, the word Christian is not nor ever was another word for BIGOT.

What exactly is "fowl behavior" - were they acting like birds? Love private clubs should become literate and learn how to spell if s/he is trying to be taken seriously. What exactly was the bad behavior? If you do not want "outsiders" in your pool then do not take their money. But oops, the club didn't know they weren't caucasian. Most disturbing is the ignorance spewed onto the internet by many people. Racists are the real minority, thankfully, but shame on the members of the Valley Club. You are getting severely negative national attention, which is what you deserve.

Somebody in Pa. check the parking lot of this "private" club. I bet anything that 9 out of 10 cars has a mccain/palin bumper sticker on it.

That is absolutely repulsive. How nasty of you.

My little poopettes won't swim with just anybody you know. I have little swim fins for them, little beach umbellas in the sand, little hats for the sun and outfits to match. The sunglasses are adoooorable. They even have their own sunscreen. Their flips flops are to die for.

So you see why I can't do that.

No...they won't float with bigots

Everything is race to blacks. If people do not want to tolerate their rude behavior and profanity, it is because they are racist.
On the other hand, let a white invade their black community, and then it is whites don't belong here.
"Their" rude behavior and profanity?

The club member quoted in the story said these children were polite and well-behaved.

Such ugly racist behavior on these boards. And these are the same idiots who act indignant whenever anyone plays the "race card".

Well, guess what? It's not "playing a card" when you ARE racist.

Here, here for The Valley swim club member(s) who voiced their own opinions / remarks. It’s a private club. It’s about high time. Why must Whites in America continually walk upon eggshells concerning Blacks; particularly in Philadelphia? Perhaps when many Blacks shed their “entitlement” culture, perhaps then many Whites will be less “uppity”...
