Why is everyone so racist? Why is this institutional and subliminal racism so prevalent that continues to keep black people from succeeding (or swimming)? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...pool-safety-poster-prompts-red-cross-apology/ "Ebony Rosemond heads a Maryland-based organization called Black Kids Swim, which is dedicated to helping young African Americans to become swimmers. Rosemond told The Washington Post that black children face a legacy of discrimination at public pools and beaches that makes them less likely to take up swimming as a recreational activity or sport. For decades, she noted, black swimmers were denied swimming lessons or barred from public pools, forcing them to swim in more dangerous locations. Stories about drownings imprinted on a generation of African Americans a fear of the water that has not subsided, she said.
