You touched on every word but those.
Are you the "head cooker" at Burger King?
Oh yeah, we all can see you're a real intellectual....MARLIN. So whats up with you that you feel the desire to harrass me? I have never addressed you now or in the past. So whats the problem? Because you believe I sound hateful?
And? There are many, many people who post that sound quite disturbing, but you zero in on me. Why? In what way did I upset you? Because I said racism is still alive and well in America? Are you referring to other posts perhaps, and if so, why are you following me MARLIN? Why do you want to attack me? Is it because I make your equipment shrink MARLIN? Loser.

We all know what likely happened here, it's not racism.
A bunch of ghetto kids came in, probably acted like animals, cussing, fighting and throwing trash everywhere.

If a white man is born in, lets say, sun city south africa and then immigrates to the US does that mean he is still an african american, my ninja? I sure hope so!
Grasshopper, African American denotes race. It means a black American. Just as if you were a white guy born in Bejjing, you would not be a Chinese American. Now when you can walk on the rice paper without making a sound, you will be a man...

It's unreal to hear things like this still are going on in the 21st century! In my opinon Mrs. Wright and John Duesler should be Fired, Fired, Fired. Zero tolerance on this type of behavier. In fact the club should start a diversity class for its members and also, should give free summer camps for at least 2 years to all minority groups in the area.

Shame on the Valley Club and its members.

You must be an ignorant fool! Don't you think that they paid by the number of kids? Get a life and get out of your box...

The REAL reason was because the club wasn't prepared to handle the number of children the daycare came with. Since there was a large number of kids, it got in the way of paying members trying to use the pool.
They have "canceled" other contracts with a large group of kids because of the same reason.
This is NOT a race issue. Some just insist on making it that way.

Where's any of the hispanic rights groups? How many hispanic kids were in their group? Or is it just a black thing? These people call racism at every opportunity.

This is one of those things where the responsible party at the club will go to his grave saying, "What the hell was I thinking?".

Club members complained about the high number of kids using the pool. It has happened before with other large groups. THIS IS NOT A RACE ISSUE. There are some who made it that way.

If there was a large number of kids at the pool then the pool should have made sure b4 they took the contract and money for all the kids that they had enough life guards and staff members available for the one day a week they had agreed upon in the first place. Being they only turned them away after they seen them I would consider that being a race issue.

There probably isn't a Hispanic rights group Miss Bobbitt. This occurred in Pa. Another fool from New Mexico is what you are. Murdering, raping, child molester State that you're from. Throwing rocks when your house is made of glass. Doesn't your State have better things to do like unearthing all the buried female bodies in your deserts and mountains?

In the return agreement, they talked about the number of kids they were allowed.
Funny how you don't hear from the group now. You only hear from "activists".

Why ask them back ? So they won't sue ? Worried about a visit from revs al, and jesse ? Too late for that....If you don't won't them there, stick to your beliefs...Don't sign contacts or cash checks either.

You don't work, do you.
Cleaning toilets is fine if one has no job. Called a paycheck!
From your writing here, you obviously
are not very bright.
Tell us, what type of job have you!
How long has it been since you had a job?

Did anyone question the behavior of these children. Maybe they were being loud and disorderly. I know that this may come to a surprise to some people but maybe it was not "race". And if it was don't they have clubs for all black people?
