Racism at the Valley Swim Club
I am not only appalled and shocked at the discriminatory attitude of the Valley Swim Club in Philadelphia, but I am saddened by the racist attitude that persists in this country. I am not so naive that I don't recognize that discrimination is alive and well, but to be so blatantly ignorant as to discriminate against children who were on a recreational outing is unforgivably outrageous. To turn them away and ban them from the club is discrimination at it's worst and at the end of the day, the Valley Swim Club and it's members should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
