    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?




    Easly Debunking though!

    I think it's because they don't wanna mess up their hair, or weave, whatever.

    Re: Why Don’t Black People Swim Stereotype

    Its a stereotype because there's some truth to it.

    Same reasoning as why "White people can't dance (or jump)" is a stereotype.

    WAIT WHAT? Dude that's just stupid ... tell me then, why every time I go to the nightclub I see white people dancing? Or most of the parkour and athlete jumpers are white? It's a stupid statement you took from movie ''white people can't fly'' it's about basketball and it's black in america... but China, Russia and Spain is very close to wooping U.S 's ass in that sport White people got no rhythm? B.. that just awful thing to say... is that because of Jazz and RUN DMC? Mate you point of view is narrow!!!

    the movie is called white men cant jump, and you must not know shit about basketball if you think those countries along with any other one "is very close to whooping the U.S. ass in that sport". hahaha, that's hilarious.
