Still, in America?

Field's post about the Valley Club kicking a group of kids out of their pool makes me ill. According to the report by the Philly NBC affiliate,
The Creative Steps Day Camp paid more than $1900 to The Valley Swim Club....The next day the club told the camp director that the camp's membership was being suspended and their money would be refunded.

Guess what color the kids' skin is.

My white kids say they don't know why people make such a big deal about racism; they don't think it exists anymore. While complaining about "those people" playing the race card. Well, kids:

"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.
I pray that this guy just made a bad diction choice, but somehow, I don't think so. I'm working on my email to the club.
