Lord have mercy, you are right. Exactly what I was saying and thinking. Nothing else to complain about? How about trying to make that smartphone monthly payment on time this month?

Look for racism hard enough and you will find it in everything, even if it's all in your head.

As for your comment about the sunglasses... Are you inferring that you can't tell if he's Asian because the sunglasses hide the "slant" of his eyes? WTH?!

So much for your enlightened vision... ahem....because you're white. You don't even see how racist your comment is, do you?
Opinions are opinions. We all get to have one.

I don't owe you an explanation for my opinion nor will I waste time providing you with one.

Stick figures are the way to go. Oh my, but what color should they be? Should they be skinny or wide? Short or tall? Clothes or naked?


Never mind.....

They all looked quite fit for their ages, didn't they. That discriminates against overweight kids and bone-skinny kids. Surely all those kids pictured come from well-to-do parents who have the money to properly feed them.

How many girls compared to boys? I didn't count, but maybe I should,,, and then take some sort of issue about it. If it's 7 boys to 6 girls, that's discrimination to us females.

Now that I think about it... were there any gays in that pool? Transgenders? Shouldn't they also be recognized by the American Red Cross?

Bingo!!

The fact that people would be more concerned about keeping score of skin color instead of accepting the poster as a means of teaching pool safety to children just validates how ridiculous all of this PC silliness has become.

That poster is absolutely offensive.

Every single 'Not Cool' person is either Black or Hispanic. There are only two 'Cool' people, and they are both white.



If I were the mother of a Black or Hispanic child, I would be offended by that poster.

Are you sure?

I see two "not cool" white people on the poster - the guy in sunglasses, and the white kid chasing the darker-skinned kid on the side of the pool.
