I agree with the previous posters, because although this board is the lesser of the other two evils when it comes to elitism, it still turns people away who don't fit the mold. I'm one of those people, but I find this board easier to navigate. I also feel as though the opinions expressed here are samples of what is to come, so I don't take too personally what I read and people need to have thicker skin.The search function still works for me, unless we're not talking about the same one.

NBC PhiladelphiaDymire Baylor says he overheard a woman ask, "What are all these black kids doing?" when he and his friends showed up.   More than 60 campers from Northeast Philadelphia were turned away from a private swim club and left to wonder if their race was the reason. Kids at Creative Steps Day Camp were thrilled to go swimming once a week at the Valley Swim Club. But after only one trip to the private club, they were... "I heard this lady, she was like, 'Uh, what are all these black kids doing here?' She's like, 'I'm scared they might do something to my child,'" said camper Dymire Baylor. The Creative Steps Day Camp paid more than $1900 to The Valley Swim Club. The Valley Swim Club is a private club that advertises open membership. But the campers' first visit to the pool suggested otherwise. "When the minority children got in the pool all of the Caucasian children immediately exited the pool," Horace Gibson, parent of a day camp child, wrote in an email. "The pool attendants came and told the black children that they did not allow minorities in the club and needed the children to leave immediately." The next day the club told the camp director that the camp's membership was being suspended and their money would be refunded.  "I said, 'The parents don't want the refund. They want a place for their children to swim,'" camp director Aetha Wright said. Campers remain unsure why they're no longer welcome. "They just kicked us out. And we were about to go. Had our swim things and everything," said camper Simer Burwell. The explanation they got was either dishearteningly honest or poorly worded.  "There was concern that a lot of kids would change the complexion and the atmosphere of the club," John Duesler, President of The Valley Swim Club said in a statement. While the parents await an apology, the camp is scrambling to find a new place for the kids to beat the summer heat. Members of the club came forward Thursday to defend the organization. They call the situation a misunderstanding.
