In my opinion is fueled by the media. I didn't grow up in the south and never even visited southern states but I never remember a time when black Kids weren't allowed in the community pools. And this was early 60's. I've never heard of it happening recently either so why does CNN make a big deal about it in this story about the black swimmer in the Olympics? The story insinuates that whites are better swimmers than blacks because they weren't allowed in pools. I'm sure that's not her story, so why bring it up? http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/12/opini...e-manuel-jones0401AMStoryLink&linkId=27629429 CNN makes it sound like blacks still have separate drinking fountains. How can you move forward if you keep bringing up bad things from the past? That's how I feel about everything...why not treat her like everybody else? Maybe write a story about how smart and talented she is, probably got a scholarship to Stanford which is a hard school to get in to. The media is the one that keeps separating and inciting....this is how I see it anyway. CNN is getting really bad lately. All anti Trump and articles like this. Maybe the north and south were different and maybe they still are but I went to high school with lots of black students and we all swam in the same pool and nobody whined about it, nor did anybody's parents make an issue out of it.
