Why Don’t Black People Swim Stereotype
Why Don’t Black People Swim?
Friend of mine asked me a Q: And I spend most of my free time on the beach.. I don't remember Black swimers, Black surfers.. and Black people are supposed to be athletes?
August of 2010 in Louisiana, six African American teenagers ages 13 to 18 all died drowning trying to save each other. There were other people present during the tragic drowning including adults, and not one of them could swim either. Unfortunately, this brought up the common stereotype about Black people:
Where did that Stereotype ''That Blacks Don't Swim'' coem from?
same reason how they say white ppl got no rhythm.
Not all black ppl can not swim.. and suffice to say.. every black person i know... knows how to swim and that picture u used of black ppl at the pool. smh. lol we all know thats a lie cause you will have n!ggas throwing mtfs in pools and trynna get some "Tang" from ladys.. tf kinda pic is that
Probably the reason being not having better access to proper training and facilities initially...
Stereotype kind of do not take the circumstances and causes of a particular behaviour/statistics in to consideration and remain even when they are outdated and not really applicable any more. Just be happy till they catch up and then overtake you.
Once again, it's a case by case issue...stereotypes are created by being with like-minded people. In fact, there really is no such thing as a "stereotype", just a large group of people that have passed on their problems to their children...same reason racism exists still, parents teaching their children their stupid flaws.
