When you turn on the sports channel and there is a swimming meet going, do you ever see any black swimmers?
Now mind you I am a swimmer that happens to be black so I am really writing this article and laughing.
It’s not that black people cant swim they just don’t have the community back up.
Most sports based in an ethnic community are based on masculinity and are backed by the majority of the community.
Not all but most predominantly black or minority communities do not have lifetime coaching, the freedom to commit their lives to the sport, financial support or the access to a training facilities to be able to swim at a competitive level.
Being that I love swimming and water it doesn’t matter who is swimming to me, but for a child that is not a good thing.
I would love to see more time put into the communities that do not have the same opportunities as everyone else.
Like I said water is everywhere and every child should be bought up with a great live saving skill.
Remember, people used to ponder the same question about Golf——– then we all got to meet Tiger Woods. ; ) LOL
