Bush made me ashamed to tell people I'm retired from the United States military. Now people like this make me ashamed to tell people I'm from Pennsylvania.

You didn't retire from my military, maybe the French military but not the U.S. military...or is this actually Gen. Wesley Clark under the pseudonym of Dunlap? What a stupid thing to post. You should be ashamed!

Come on. This swim club dropped ALL day cares, not just this black one.

I really hate it when blacks throw a temper tantrum by falsely claiming racism, whenever they can't get their way.

Exactly.... Next Al Sharpton and his black panthers will start a riot then only to find out that the little black kids were out of control and couldnt swim. And there will be no apology from the king d!p sh!t Rev. Al who dosent know his aRS from a hole in the ground. I am so sick of blacks claming we crackas owe them! Owe them for what I never owned any slaves my grandparents never did. And i never once discriminated any of them. If anything Rev D!p Sh!t owes all the whites an apology for being stupid in the publics eye

What part of private doesn't anyone understand?

"Private" gives the members the right to allow or not allow guests or members for what ever reason they want.

Liberals, be very careful. Once you take away private clubs and organizations ability to choose its members or guests, you also take away your right as a private citizen to do the same.

Keep up your bleeding heart bullshit and it will only be a matter of time before you, the private citizen, are not able to choose who or who is not welcome in your private residence.

Benedict Arlen is looking into the matter?!?! That idiot should be looking into where his spine, heart, and head disappeared to. Besides, the Revvvvverend Jesse Jackson will be on this in no time to turn it into the whitey-hating circus it's bound to become. Stay tuned...

Oh, yeah? And it just happened to be on the day that the black kids were there?

So the fact that the white parents all took their kids out of the pool and stood with their arms crossed, or the fact that the kids said they heard racial slurs, were all incidental??

Or how about the fact that club President John Duesler said that the children had changed "the complexion" and "atmosphere" of the club??

Yeah, no racism here. Way to blame the victims.

Then in all fairness, you should apologize as well...

This is nothing compared to the blatant racism in Pensacola Florida. No minority police just minority residents. No minorities in the city pool when its Aryan Nation day, but you will see plenty of Pensacola finest... can anybody guess how many local police detectives go to the Aryan church? Pensacola Florida a hotbed of KKK activity.

We don't even consider ourselves good enough for the lawsuit, otherwise we'd be busy figuring up a price to offer to them for a 'pay off'

Good 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”...

Valley Swim Club -
Racist since 1954

...And they are proud of it?

It's time to take away their charter and close the club if they continue to break the law and remain a racist entity.

Be honest and admit that you are a bunch of racists.

How about the story from Ohio where a white family was beat up by a gang of 12+ blacks, shouting, "it's a black world"? They don't think that a hate crime though and of course the major networks have completely avoided reporting it.

Can't we all just get along? When a white man goes off to prison, guess what...you are in a black mans world and you will learn about black culture. After a few years living with them, you'll learn to respect them as any other man.

I was at a pool once where a black kid took a dump in the shallow end. The kids mother looked at it and laughed. She then got angry and called a white person a racist just because she was told to clean it up.
