Study: Young Black Children
Drown At Far Higher Rates

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:Ribicon, 5/16/2014 10:22:51 PM

New York — Swimming pools are a much greater danger to black children and teens than they are to other kids, a new government study shows. Black children ages 5 to 19 drown in swimming pools at a rate more than five times that of white children, the research found. That suggests a lot of blacks are not learning to swim, said the lead author, Dr. Julie Gilchrist of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Swimming is a life-saving skill, not just another sport, she said. The racial differences were smaller for drownings in lakes or other bodies of

Comments:
Suspicions confirmed: water is racist, probably because it is so light in color, and thus naturally mean. Enhanced perils for black people once Global Climate Disruption causes the seas to rise; better act now.

Blacks tend to sink like stones in fresh water. That´s why there are no black Olympic swimmers.

It was a commonly known fact well over fifty years ago (about as far back as I go) that most black parents did not see to it that their children could swim as much as white parents did, which probably means that I´m a racist or something.

Instead of all the money dedicated to sex education and environmental indoctrination in schools, invest in teaching kids to swim. It should be part of the "let´s move" campaign, but Dems are all talk about helping kids. Taxpayer money goes to their agenda items, not to something that would be valuable to children

WOW, somehow, not to be racist, maybe it´s because they are more muscular/lean and that doesn´t float well...I had the same problem learning...I always sank and had to work harder to stay up...

There´s an allegory in there somewhere.

One is reminded of the old (truly racist)joke about the Southern Coroner and Sheriff pulling the limp body of a black man who is wrapped in chains into a small boat. Says the Sheriff:"Boy shouldn´t have stolen more chain than he could swim with."

It´s not all that easy to work three deeply racist notions into just one punchline.

One assumes that it is also racist to observe that there is an additional ´racist´ notion that Black Folks have an aversion to deep water and big dogs but it was considered to be common knowledge a hundred years ago when I was a kid.

It´s simple really. If you´re kid can´t swim, don´t bring them anywhere near a pool.

My son was two. We took all necessary precautions. He climbed over the fence and nearly went into the pool. God protected him.

I personally hate pools in the back yard although I know in some climates they are beneficial.

Black people have denser bones than caucasians or Asians. It´s a disadvantage when in the water, needless to say because of the decreased buoyancy. However, much less prone to get osteoporosis--that´s an advantage for sure.

Children learn about swimming from watching TV. Tv shows adults plowing happily into the surf. Children who imitate them go plowing into the water. Moving slowly with supporting hands of adults does not fit.

Wow, what a "cracker" thread this is.

Could it possibly be that most blacks are poor and don´t have a lot of access to swimming pools and trips to the beach?

I´m a rock-ribbed conservative and I detest bull-cr@p statistics that don´t prove anything. And I also hate racism but usually direct my anti-racist vitriol against anti-white race-baiters. But this thread takes the cracker cake.

Years ago, a New York City school official got in trouble for voicing opposition to a school trip to a pool or beach. His mistake? Saying that too many black children can´t swim, and the trip would be too dangerous.

He was roundly accused of being a racist.

@21 You missed the point completely. All comments, including the joke now considered in bad taste thanks to the pc world we´ve allowed to evolve, are aimed at the study, which was in turn aimed at the black citizen. Once again, per wise latina, we are divided by the color of our skin, once again a group is singled out and made a victim, once again was any valid solution offered?

I would bet any Ldotter would be happy to help out with swim lessons for any child. I would also bet those that did this worthless study got paid well, and probably aren´t offering swim lessons.

#21, there are numerous ponds, creeks, lakes, rivers, and/or oceans available to everyone. Swimming didn´t start after the invention of swimming pools.

There must be some inherent aversion to going into water where swimming is necessary to avoid drowning.

It´s not at all racist to acknowledge racial and cultural differences between peoples. Are many of us so indoctrinated and cowed that intuitive deduction is considered a crime against humanity?

#21, every urban area I´ve lived or worked in had a number of public swimming pools available to the poor. Free public swimming is available at rivers, oceans, creeks, ponds and lakes all over the country. I know many, many poor people who took the time to make sure their kids knew how to swim. It´s not a matter of money; it´s a matter of priorities.

Growning up in rual WV back in the 70s and 80s as a young Black kid this story hits home like a laser beam. Back then I had access to swimming pools at the local park and they had really cheap lessons for us kids. As such my mom saw to it that my brothers and sister aloong with myself learned how to swim. Other Black parents that my mother knew also thought it was a good idea if nothing else so that we all could fully enjoy the pool. Now it is a fact that back then many Black kids in that age group didn´t know how to swim and it caused one of my friends to drown when we all went to camp one summer. There is nothing racist about pointing out the fact that due to no access, money or not caring Black children don´t know how to swim. My answer to that is parents need to make use that they do know how bacasue you never know what could happen.

Tommy Ramone, drummer and last surviving original member of the punk-rock band Ramones, died Friday, confirmed to the Los Angeles Times by the band´s manager with Silent Partner Management. He was 65, the manager confirmed.

Middle-class families should stop buying large fridges in order to save energy and tackle climate change, a government-commissioned report has suggested. Families could save up to £36 a year on their electricity bills by replacing large fridge-freezers or televisions with smaller appliances, according to a study published by the Department for Energy and Climate Change. The report found that the average family fridge had grown in volume by two fifths since 1985, amid a fashion for large American-style appliances, while the average television had grown by more than seven inches since 2004. It warned that the trend undermined

Washington and Lee University expressed regret Tuesday for the school’s past ownership of slaves and promised to remove Confederate flags from the main chamber of its Lee Chapel after a group of black students protested that the historic Virginia school was unwelcoming to minorities. President Kenneth P. Ruscio’s announcement was a surprising move for the small, private liberal arts college in Lexington, which has long celebrated its Southern heritage. Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee served as the university’s president after the Civil War, his crypt is beneath the chapel, and the school has gingerly addressed its ties to the Confederacy

Both acknowledged Boehner’s gripe with the Obama administration had merit, but were skeptical of the lawsuit’s chances. However, they both also took on the alternative offered by former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), which was to impeach President Barack Obama. Both dismissed that course of action as well, with Brooks calling it “cloud cuckoo land.” Partial transcript as follows: WOODRUFF: So the Highway Trust
