    article posted:
    More than 60 campers from Northeast Philadelphia were turned away from a private swim club and left to wonder if their race was the reason.

    "I heard this lady, she was like, 'Uh, what are all these black kids doing here?' She's like, 'I'm scared they might do something to my child,'" said camper Dymire Baylor.

    The Creative Steps Day Camp paid more than $1900 to The Valley Swim Club. The Valley Swim Club is a private club that advertises open membership. But the campers' first visit to the pool suggested otherwise.

    "When the minority children got in the pool all of the Caucasian children immediately exited the pool," Horace Gibson, parent of a day camp child, wrote in an email. "The pool attendants came and told the black children that they did not allow minorities in the club and needed the children to leave immediately."

    The next day the club told the camp director that the camp's membership was being suspended and their money would be refunded.

    "I said, 'The parents don't want the refund. They want a place for their children to swim,'" camp director Aetha Wright said.

    Campers remain unsure why they're no longer welcome.

    "They just kicked us out. And we were about to go. Had our swim things and everything," said camper Simer Burwell.

    The explanation they got was either dishearteningly honest or poorly worded.

    "There was concern that a lot of kids would change the complexion and the atmosphere of the club," John Duesler, President of The Valley Swim Club said in a statement.

    While the parents await an apology, the camp is scrambling to find a new place for the kids to beat the summer heat.
    What the actual fuck, do these people think black people eat children or something? I thought this shit ended 40 years ago.

    What kind of swim club?

    It'd be illegal if it were a public pool, but because it is a private one that requires a membership then it could be legal.

    Also with $1900, couldn't they just get their own damn pool?

    If I own a pool and say it's private but allow my friends in then yes, I'm allowed to discriminate. Just because it's a private group doesn't matter.

    well, it's a black guy who's saying "pool's closed", so it's kinda... well, ironic if not anything else.

    also, they purchased memberships, they should be allowed to go into the pool. just because it's a private club pool is no excuse for racism.

    Yeah, that's the part that's bad. They said they'd refund them but I don't get why the didn't decide just not to give them memberships in the first place?

    From USlaw.com:

    Discrimination might occur when an individual tries to vote; rent, or buy a home; use a public facility; get a job, an education, or a bank loan, or do many other things.

    That doesn't say anything about privately owned property, does it?

    Well not if a black-man wanted a job there, and you were hiring people to work there of course.

    They PAID FOR THE POOL! They were ALLOWED TO PAY IN THE FIRST PLACE.

    It's not like the pool openly says, "NO NIGGURZZZ ALOWRED!!!". They have just as much the right.

    This would be considered discrimination, as they allowed whites to pay for the use of the pool but not blacks.

    They can allow or disallow anyone to pay for their shit if it's private.

    If you're selling your house but only agree to sell it to whites, it's discrimination.

    It's obviously discrimination by definition. I mean, the USlaw quote says "many other things", and this would certainly fall in there =/
