Why Don’t Black People Swim?

John Derbyshire: "Life is an IQ test."


Does anyone here want to take a shot at answering this question?

It sounds apropos in light of John Derbyshire getting slammed for bringing up biological racial differences in his article on The Talk (Nonblack Version):

“When 15-year-old DeKendrix Warner accidentally stepped into deeper water while wading in the Red River in Shreveport, he panicked.

JaTavious Warner, 17, Takeitha Warner, 13, JaMarcus Warner, 14, Litrelle Stewart, 18, Latevin Stewart, 15, and LaDarius Stewart, 17, rushed to help him and each other.

None of them could swim. All six drowned. DeKendrix was rescued by a passer-by.

Maude Warner, mother of three of the victims, and the other adults present also couldn’t swim.

The US has almost 3,500 accidental drownings every year, almost 10 a day.

But according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the fatal drowning rate of African-American children aged five-14 is three times that of white children.

A recent study sponsored by USA Swimming uncovered equally stark statistics.

Just under 70% of African-American children surveyed said they had no or low ability to swim. Low ability merely meant they were able to splash around in the shallow end. A further 12% said they could swim but had “taught themselves”.

Note: This would make a good numbered post at SBPDL.

  1. Some folks say black women especially don’t swim because of their hair. Black hair treatments in salons and at home constitute a huge $$$ industry — and it’s logical to not waste $50-100 (just guessing) on a hair treatment to go for a swim. Maybe swimming is “white”?

  2. “I clearly “stumbled” upon this site accidentally–”

    Hi, there, cd. Welcome! Stick around; it’s Confederate History month. Don’t be TOO scared, because, if you dare — if you are not too SCARED — you are about to get an eduction you didn’t bargain for.

    But, sometimes, you know, the seeming worst accidents turn out the most serendipitous.

    It will be confusing — all your glib, happy-talky, comfy liberal doctrines will be upended. It WILL be painful — losing your religion always is.

    But in the end, you will be in possession of the actual truth. And — if you’re White — well, a fine and satisfying thing that is, indeed; totally worth it.
    Like Galileo before us: “Still, it moves.”

  3. Alas, this is what happens when shallow people enter deep water. It’s a perfect analogy to the social equation.

    Looking at those names, I’m inclined to think this episode was from The Onion.

    Ah, Doris Day. Beautiful music by a beautiful and talented woman from a comparatively beautiful time. Anyone who enjoys that type of music should be familiar with singers like Margaret Whiting and my personal favorite, Miss Perfect Pitch, Jo Stafford.

  4. Who named these children? They would have never been hired in corporate America because of the names given to them by their parents. Damn I cant stand ignorance. Its a tragedy that they all drowned how can parents go without making their kids learn how to swim. The same damn parents that never read to their children. I HATE IGNORANCE. Give children a normal name and teach them how to read and write with a meaning so they may have a future off the welfare program and eat without food stamps. Damn some people are just dumb.

  5. diane ur a racist bitch. jus becus ppl of a different culture have different names you think they’re ignorant. you and racist trash like you are ignorant. so go home and fuck jo bob, dick, or henry back at the trailer park while he beats you and forces you to cook him a tv dinner u dumb cunt. …… ps i am white nt that it matters tho

  6. “i am white nt that it matters tho”

    Apparently not in your case, if you actually ARE white.

  7. Don’t stress jreal. It’s just genetics.

    Blacks can’t swim.

    Whites can’t rap.

    Chill homie!!!

  8. LOL, jreal is a wigger. I always get a good laugh from seeing White guys who emulate niggers!!
    Why do you hate yourself, jreal? Why do you want to be a nigger?

  9. my kids black ya’ll think nigger means ignorant but you are as ignorant as it get’s. how do you like being the minority and haven a black president. this country isn’t all yours anymore it’s everyones srry. it’s easy to be hard sitten behind a computer with ur fat lazy asses but you wldn’t say that to my face or infront of a black person cuz you’d get your teeth knocked down your throat and you know it. cowards

  10. @jreal

    I’ve called niggers ‘NIGGER’ right to their faces — in a county jail cell when I where I was the only white guy in the cell. I still have all my teeth, and walked away without a scratch. I can’t say the same for those niggers in front of me that night. But you’re right, I wouldn’t say ‘nigger’ to your face, ‘jreal’. I would just spit in it.

    White people are far from being the minority in America. You’ll find that out this November, when your faggot-Kenyan get’s voted out, and your adopted tribe ignites a race-war. Then you can come crawling back after your sheboon cuts off your pathetic little cockette and feeds it to her pitbull’s.

    I feel sorry for your mother.

  11. sure u did chris sure u did. they wldve jumped ur ass there was prolly like one black dude in ur little redneck kkk hillbilly county jail. your so full of shit. obama’s gunna win again to. i feel sorry 4 ur grandmother cuz i shoved my cock in her mouth last night while it was shitstained.

  12. fact is i dn’t get upset over soft internet gangsters comments. i’m just on house arrest and have nothing better to do than respond to these lame ass comments . b4 this i’ve never blogged a day in my life…becuz i actually have one. what’s your excuse.

  13. Jreal …

    You’re wisdom is only surpassed by your ignorance.

    Whiggerdom should be embarrassment enough for, but you’re a self admitted oil driller.


    How you even look your own people in the face is beyond me.

    Shame on you.

  14. “sure u did chris sure u did. they wldve jumped ur ass there was prolly like one black dude in ur little redneck kkk hillbilly county jail.”

    Wow. Just wow.

    Your self hate is beyond me. Your ancestors would be ashamed.

  15. i dn’t have any regret about being white nor do i hate white ppl jus the dumb fuck racist ones that make me ashamed. you are truly shit

  16. nd your ancestors shld be ashamed 4 the slave trade and 4 stealing this land and killing off damn near all the indians. not to mention killing all the land 4 more fucking walmarts and mcdonald’s cuz we dn’t have enuff already. but i’m not complaining cuz i like this shitball countrey nd my mcey d d’s. nd i’m sure most of the black like it here to cz i dn’t see them all hauling ass to get back to africa. the indians tho they jus got fucked all the way around. ps.. eat my dik

  17. jreal, what are you on house arrest for?
    Good thing you get to do your time at home, if you were sent upstate you would not be welcomed by the nigger population. They hate Whites and hate wiggers even more.

    As a race traitor, do you laugh along when your niggers buddies demean and insult your race. And don’t say they don’t, we all know they do.

  18. Yes, indeed, the whigger’s father was absent in some form … if not outright. I really don’t understand how “jreal” is not embarrassed – he’s an oil driller and he has black hellion children.

    Let’s hope he’s lying and that he did not squander his genetic legacy.

  19. i get along fine wit black ppl, of course in prison it’s all segregated by race but even there there is usually a mutual respect most of the time i’m not a racetrader faggot i dn’t care about race that is a kkk term you hilbilly sheetwearin fuck. if they disrespect you it’s prolly cuz ur a white nerdy fuk wit no game or maybe they cn jus smell the racism nd fear on you

  20. J-unreal – you are the one that’s afraid. It comes off you in waves…..

    Race is real. Race MATTERS.

  21. Gayreal isn’t on house arrest at all, he just stays home and changes his nigglet’s diapers while his syphilitic sheboon prostitutes herself homeless men for a pennies.

    And if that little maggot went upstate, I guarantee he’d be begging the Aryan Brotherhood for protection, and would end up sucking their cocks and muling contraband up his ass for them. And they’d still probably turn him out.

  22. yes more free plugs keep em comin haters. yea white boy’s cn’t rap that’s y i perform and get booked all over the country? like i said eat a dik

  23. chris you sound like you know about getting gang raped nd sukin dik in the pen from experience. oh gayreal?…. that’s so clever

  24. No, jreal. I am from an inner-city area. Grew up around niggers and spics. I have never lived in the hills. I have also been to prison in my younger years.

    Yes, prison is very segregated. Their is no mutual respect you speak of, just segregation. That’s were I became extremely racialy aware. I saw first hand differences in behavior of races. I only spoke to and hung out with Whites. I and my friends only socialised with our own kind.

    The wiggers, like yourself, were never accepted in with the niggers there. With true White guys, your kind was ridiculed and laughed at and used to transport contraband. I found the niggers in prison to be a vile display. They were dirty, loud and child-like. It is funny to me that that is what you aspire to be.
    How in the hell can you stand the smell of your nigress? You are a joke, jreal.
    You will most likely grow out of this faze of your life and be ashamed in later years.

  25. yea denise you dumb cunt i’m real scared that’s y i’m the only one not hiding nd willingly given out my site and my pictures. ya all r so jealouse cuz i’m liven my dream perfomin with famous artist nd fukin grupies. so ya all cn keep jockin my nuts and maybe learn sum game

  26. No. Judging by his myspace and his naive worldview, “jreal” has no real experience with niggers.

    Niggers would not respect his inauthentic whigger facade. It’s ridiculous on its face.

    Onestdv sums up whiggerdom nicely:

    I’ve written often about wiggers, the easily mocked class of untouchable whites who try to emulate ghetto black culture and behavior. The vast majority of whites get a good laugh at the expense of the unaware wigger; we laugh at their transparently desperate attempts to garner acceptance from blacks and the larger culture that connects blackness and vibrancy. I encountered a 20-something wigger yesterday. He had the typical ensemble on, though I can’t describe details (see pics). His iPod blasted rap music with the bass turned all the way up. He bobbed his head ferociously to the music, even using hand gestures as if he were rapping the words himself. Not sure if one could compare him to this level of risible wiggerdom, but he came very close.

    I spent my time next to this individual stifling laughter and rather openly gawking at him. Yet Mr. ‘Wigg’ sat there apparently ignorant to the few other white and Asian individuals who looked at him curiously. Perhaps he was more focused on the large number of blacks in his general vicinity, presumably because he desired their favor above all else. In this regard, he actually fights an uphill battle, as blacks don’t take too kindly to those unauthentic individuals who seek to coopt their cultural creations.

    While the suburban wigger is viewed as an oddity amongst his peer group, the urban wigger who explicitly seeks acceptance amongst homogeneously black groups isn’t generally treated well. In sum, blacks don’t really like whites who “ain’t keepin’ it real.” Blacks may be dumb, but they do understand being taken advantage of, their cultural stamp of approval now the most potent form of social capitol available.

  27. I agree, jreal is most likely a suburban punk. Inner city feral niggers would eat this kid alive.

  28. Desperate for attention, isn’t he?

    Jreal – you have very good White features. Are you a redhead? Your basic features, and coloring, are just splendid.

    I think you want to be noticed, more than anything.

    Stay away from Niggers. Whites are going “off” them. Every-one else – Arabs, Asians, etc – LOATHE Niggers, Nigs have chimpanzee DNA. They are throwbacks. Genetic mistakes. No one’s interested anymore.

    Renounce Niggers. Clean yourself up. Make sure you haven’t contracted any diseases. Niggers are no longer fashionable. I know you think they are – but a mass extinction is heading their way.

    We are simply way ahead of the curve. Catch up, dear.

  29. It’s too late for jreal. He has niggers kids. When they go black, we don’t want them back.
    He will get in over his head at some point and suffer the wrath of his nigger associates. He is anti-White and deserves what ever happens to him.

  30. LOL, rap was popular with white people as a fad for a while in the late nineties Some jewish rec execs realized if they hired a rapper that the angst driven little white kiddies could identify with, they could could really make a payday. They found one with sufficient “street cred” made eminem a big “star”. Now the music scene has long since moved on, but every white “wrapper” still thinks he can be the next slim shady. The fact this boy is still using myspace indicates how fucking ghetto clueless he is.

  31. yea sean what’s your point it’s no sicker or depraved then all the innocent black ppl who were beaten nd hung from trees simply becuz they were black. i wish it was you and your slut that was raped and murdered instead

  32. jim your in fuckin denial rap is the number 1 music genre today i bet you still listen to 80s rock u fuckin fossil. and diane oh diane you hopeless racist cunt. anyway rap is still on the rise and so am i. the times are changing srry you cn’t keep up your the old generation no one gives a fuck about. rappers cn be white the president cn be black. srry if it bothers you, bt the majority of this country isn’t as stupid closed minded as the few of you inbred hillbilly fucks. thank god

  33. Have fun with your nigger homies, nothing good will come out of it.
    You turn your back on your race and we will turn our back to you.
    Good luck, wigger, you’ll need it!!

  34. whatever you ignorant fuk i have many friends of all races you cld’t possibly be more dumb and full of shit. there is no we just you racist white fucker minority, and the rest of us people/human beings. sure theres racist in all races but you guys take the cake and propagate most of it. look the word up you simple hillbilly i’m prolly talkin to big 4 you. you act like you speak 4 he whole race, bitch please
