I wonder what would happen if all the white people at Dorney Park would get out of the wave pool and just cross there arms in protest? They would probably be called racists & asked to leave the park. Its always a double standard when it comes to racism. I have nieghbors who are black & nieghbors that are latino. Both good hard working people. Its ashame some can give all a bad reputation.
Never been to Dorney Park on the weekends have you? You can't get on any rides because of the bus loads of people who come and the long lines for the rides. When 5 o'clock comes around and the people leave, then you can get on rides with no waiting. That is why I go during the week. It is less crowded and only the locals go during the week. You can barely get in wave pools on the weekends.

No matter what the reason was, the club will be sued. If they had continued coming back, and something bad happened due to overcrowding, they would be sued for letting them come to start with. It's a lose/lose situation, unfortunately.

Figures there'd be a lawsuit. Just a bunch of proch monkeys looking for another free hand out. I guess standing in the welfare line was too much work.
