    Of course, it's always the black people breaking the rules isn't it?


    These people? I guess if they don't "consistently" feel racism is at play it's just most of the time?
    I never said any of this. This is not worthy of a response.

    For all you know the "you're a racist" attitude comes from experiencing it, just like your cynicism about people "playing the race card" comes from having experienced it.

    I think the current climate and epidemic of passive aggression by hostile people is making everything worse. Try to take people at face value and deal with them honestly and respectfully and don't make assumptions about them that you don't want made about you.
    That truly is a wonderful thing to say, but how exactly does it relate to pool enforcement? The PM and the guards treat everyone the same. They do not care about your race, your age, anything. The pool is really really strict. I remember a middle aged white lady getting mad at them because they ejected her friends. They wanted to go to the pool and she did not. Can't do that. The owner or resident must be present with their card, the card cannot be loaned. She thought that since young people cause trouble, not older people, they should not hassle her friends quietly enjoying the pool area. But they did hassle them. They were escorted out of the pool area.

    Do that to a black group of people, and there is an excellent chance they will argue racism is the reason when it isn't. I was removed from the pool and escorted ALL the way home (I live at the furthest point from the pool, a long walk with that security guard babbling at me about how serious they are about the rules, do not go back there until I get my card, etc). And if I turned out not to even live here (the reason he escorted me home was to see whether I did) I would have been criminally trespassed off the property entirely, which would have meant actual city police coming to do that

    If I were black, I could have made a news story out of that. 'Trying to swim while black'. Since I am white, it was just one in a million times of them doing their job as they always do.

    What else should a white PM lacking security on duty do? Ours also has to call police if violators will not comply with her requests. If you just shrug and walk away pretty soon all rules are out the window.

    And if our PM were black, she'd only have police as a recourse as well. Security doing it is no different, just less drama. It seems dramatic because they were called to drive over and deal with it, but in the end it's no different than if she called the security guard on duty to walk over and do the same thing.

    Product of years of CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post ? All indoctrination centers to turn racial discrimination on it head, in your mind, to make you think as if this was 1953 (before even Brown vs Bd of Ed), and have you thinking that blacks are race discrimination victims, when they clearly are the BENEFICIARIES of primarily the only racial discrimination in America today (Affirmative Action).

    Also, there is no "painting". Whites by far, have been THE victims of race discrimination in America (contrary to your media programming) for over 50 years now. Nothing "stupid' about citing FACTS (even when they contradict the liberal media propaganda)

    As for the word "reverse", this is a discussion about racial discrimination, not about VCRs or cassette recorders.

    OK, so then what is the point of any rules if there is no method of enforcement?

    Calling the police is over the top. This was not worth escalating to the degree that it did.
