Another race shock!!!


The drownings shocked the community and sparked a campaign

A month ago, six African-American teenagers drowned in a single incident in Louisiana, prompting soul-searching about why so many young black Americans can’t swim.

When 15-year-old DeKendrix Warner accidentally stepped into deeper water while wading in the Red River in Shreveport, he panicked.

JaTavious Warner, 17, Takeitha Warner, 13, JaMarcus Warner, 14, Litrelle Stewart, 18, Latevin Stewart, 15, and LaDarius Stewart, 17, rushed to help him and each other.

None of them could swim. All six drowned. DeKendrix was rescued by a passer-by.

 

Does this mean that water is racist?

  1. “…prompting soul-searching about why so many young black Americans can’t swim.”

    WTF…?

  2. No but it does lean towards you being a total (cont p9)

  3. No mention, I notice of the colour of the passing-by rescuer. Could it be that he/she was white in which case I can understand why the colour wasn’t mentioned. If, on the other hand, he/she was black then I’m surprised the headline wasn’t something like, “Heroic Bro saves life”. And why the description of ‘African-American’? If the lad was born in the USA then he’s American. His parents or Gransparents may have been African-American if they were first generation but otherwise they are Americans. I don’t go around describing myself as a Welsh-Mauritian-Englishman. Perhaps it’s because they don’t really have a history over there so they have to latch on to someone elses. Silly, patheic buggers.
