Dear Wealthy POC: Invest in a chain of swimming pools, please

I was reading about the bullshit in Cincinnati this morning and thought we'd somehow time-warped back to 1962 or some shit.
Krystal Dixon dropped off her kids and nieces and nephews at the Fairfield, Ohio, pool just as she’d done many times before. Not a half-hour later, the family was being rushed to the hospital after a violent altercation with local police.

The incident started so small. When one child didn’t have swimming trunks, staff demanded the family leave.

Pause right there: If they saw that one child didn't have swimming trunks, why did they take their money in the first place?

Because from where I sit, it looks to me like they took this family's money with no intention to provide an actual service from the get-go.  Remember back in the good ole days when Negroes would pay bus fare, only for the driver to take off before they could board?  This story totally reminded me of that shit.

Then there's this:
“Everything’s going crazy and they’re videotaping, trying to make it look like a racist thing and it’s not at all,” the caller said. “They were breaking our policy and we told them they couldn’t be here anymore and it’s really scary and I don’t feel safe.”
*cue fountain of vomit*

White women...the next time you're trying to be friendly with one of us and we're not having it...remember this.

But in all seriousness, I need the wealthy brown folks of America to invest in building POC-owned, and POC-run indoor swimming pools, to be used all-year round.  Not only would such an undertaking create jobs, not only will our kids swim in peace, but if you block off the early morning hours for athletes and their coaches, you could breed a whole new generation of Olympic swimmers.

Just sayin'.

  1. I'm glad people are pointing out that it's mostly white women making these calls because the have flown under the racist radar far too long. They have always been painted as victims of white men but these bitches have been his partner in crime since day one. I swear these cops and these "help, I see black people" white women are the new klan and Miss Ann.
