If you live in Philadelphia then chances are you’ve heard about the group of 6o inner-city youth (black and hispanic) from the Creative Steps Day Camp who were recently kicked out of the exclusive Valley Swim Club just outside of Philadelphia. The children reported hearing patrons of the club make racist remarks.  Regarding why the children were kicked out, club President, John Duesler, had this to say: “there was concern that a lot of kids would change the complexion … and the atmosphere of the club”. The club patrons say it was a safety issue but the children say otherwise. Check out the video for the full story and let us know what you think.
