Are you aware that minorities are at a higher risk of drowning? (Inspired by a local news story)

Yes, because they grew up in neighborhoods without swimming pools.

Water and minorities don't mix.

I respect you, but please refrain from words like that first one on my polls in the future, okay?

It's all good. I used the "a" not the "er". The brothers know what's up.

I'll try. But unless you're my momma, or girlfriend, I don't see that happening.

It was a news story done by a black female reporter on my local news. I provided a link.

Meh. I'll save them for friends.

Did you look at the link? It's about encouraging folks to learn to swim.

This is maybe more prevalent in urban getto settings, where opportunities are limited.

Possible...the story was done locally & the person who was interviewed & couldn't swim where not in an urban area.

Seriously, this is not news. I saw this first hand in the USN. First in boot camp and later as a rescue swimmer. It's 1 factor why there are a higher % of minorities in the Army compared to the USN & USMC. No swim requirements in the Army.

That and that for safety reasons they should really learn.
