    I was surprised today when i heard Robin say she can't swim. I was thinking by the size of her she should be more boyant. I was really surprised when she said lots of black people can't swim.

    She "wrote" an article about it for the Huff Post. Of course she blamed the white devil for the reasons negros cant swim. :kkk::boobily:

    Exactly. It's common knowledge that black people can't swim. Just ask Al Campanis.

    Wow. I'm shocked I didn't see the resemblance before. Striking resemblance. Striking.

    As stated above, this issue has been covered, many times. It's the main reason why they all make fun of Robin (Bob'n') having a boat and a jetski - if she falls off of either, she's at the mercy of the tide in her life jacket.

    One time Robin did get knocked off the jetski (going through a heavy wake). When she told the story, she was amazed that life jackets actually work! Someone had to help her to get to a dock, then climb up, out of the water

    Were you surprised by the statistic, or by the fact that Robin admitted it? As a kid, I'd always heard it, and rarely saw black people at public pools (even though said pools were in "bad" neighborhoods), but the truth of the matter was highlighted during my 2 months in US Navy Boot Camp (Great Lakes, IL). There was a huge, indoor pool, and everyone (several hundred people per day, at the time) had to line up, climb a ladder, step off a high diving board, so as to hit the water feet first, and then swim to the side. Piece of cake. Even if you weren't that good at swimming, all you had to do was hold still, touch bottom, push off of the bottom with your feet & legs, and then angle your ascent towards the ladder. By the time you broke the surface, you'd be within a few feet it.

    It didn't work out so well for 99% of the blacks. There were at least several dozen there on that day. One managed to get to the ladder. The rest? They sank to the bottom and stayed there. Frogmen in SCUBA gear had to grab them, bring them up to the surface, and haul them over to the ladder. Most of them just froze up, petrified, and couldn't move at all. A few flailed, panic stricken, and had to be forcibly restrained (there were 2 pairs of frogmen, occasionally all 4 were needed).

    The then, official (pre-PC) Navy term for blacks: African Rock Fish (they didn't look like rocks, but sure swam like them).

    If black people could swim, they wouldn't be here.

    took the family to a great wolf lodge a few weeks ago (one of those indoor water park resorts) its a huge place, had to be at least 1,000 people in the water park at any given time, and what struck me was that the entire weekend i only saw 1 black kid, who appeared to be there with a white family
