The surest way to ruin a pleasant pool experience is to introduce 15 or so blacks. My experience is that they are rude, noisy, and uncouth.

May God richly bless each and every one of those children who were turned away from that pool. I hope they are so successful in life, they can laugh in the faces of those people who mistreated them. The little boy, whose last name was Allen, just broke my heart.

If this was a Private Club they can do whatever they want.

If I wanted to go to Evergreen Park and swim at Aqua (Private Club), I would be truned away because I'm not a member.

What would have happened if one of those kids drowned? Humm we can say lawsuit.
