On our family road trip recently, we made an effort to stay in hotel or motels with swimming pools. The reason is that at home this summer we've noticed a problem with the nearby community pool. Yeah, you guessed it. It's too dark, meaning it's just too stressful being in there, for the decent kids anyway.
It's a big damn pool, and most people have some courtesy, stay in one place if they are just playing and not swimming across, and just aren't so damn loud. Most black people just can't seem to be this way. There would otherwise be enough room, and it would otherwise be enjoyable.
It's just a shame because this one is very convenient, very inexpensive, and one can pay per visit. (We were only going to be there 2 or 3 times a week.) Upon checking out some other pools, well, you have to join up with a goodly fee* and it's about 4 times farther away.
You know, there's really nothing that awfully wrong with different groups staying apart for most activities. People had this stuff down 60 years ago, but busybodies thought they knew better. They didn't know better, but that'd have been OK if they had just stayed out of the business of the people who did. It's miserable our being in the pool with unruly black kids that are mostly a lot bigger than ours. Late in July or so, we'd had enough.

* I know. There's a reason for that, and that KEEPS it a good pool. We just would be paying for a lot of things we wouldn't use, and it's definitely too late for this summer.
