If you think for a moment the God that created you would fall for such ignorance by any and all people and hide behind Christian, you are sadly mistaken. People of all ethnic groups have various challenges. You must know that in order for you have a place in heaven, you need to make it here. It takes too much energy to hate and mistreat people of any color. Shame on you as parent to think you are educating your children by teaching them to hate and dislike people because of the color of their skin. God created each of us with purpose in mind and that is we were created for God's pleasure, not for your judgment. You will have give an account for the things you teach your children as God holds each of us responsible for what we plant into our childrens lives. It is sad that in a world where Black people were forced here, this craziness still exist and you wonder why children behave the way they do. Get it together.

Rather or not you choose be a part of the so called "black culture", then stay out of the sun when it shines and turns your skin that honey brown you so desire. You love the color, regardless of what you think or feel, but your desire to not want to embrace the black race comes from your own shame. The shame of being mistreated. Think about it....... Know what you speak comes from the depth of your heart and the inward shame you embrace. Let go and Let God. God makes the difference in how we all see each other because we should see each other as human first and color should never be a factor or a requirement in how one is treated.

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!

LOL! Hitler was Black and the two boys from Columbine HS were Black too weren't they? Opps! I almost forgot! Timothy McVeigh was Black too!
What ever happened to judging PEOPLE for what Individuals do. Why does RACE matter so much to you?
Because he is a white supremacist

Tyler Perry took all of those kids to Disney World after hearing this story. Spread the love. We need more people to talk about the wonderful people of the world instead of these haters.

Whites have a right to reject the cultural interjection. Obama allows his daughters to listen to Ludicris ... We as a white society have a right to protect our children from that perversion. If you want to call that as racism ... so be it..
Sorry but discrimination on the basis of race is illegal, even for private entities such as the Valley Swim Club. By making comments like you have done, you are making an even greater case for the campers / parents filing the suit. Which is just fine with me.
