Sharp commentary on the Philly pool situation

I've been digging Elon James White's video series This Week In Blackness since I got hipped to it a few weeks ago.  Great commentary on the news of the day, particularly as it relates to race and some of the silly beliefs that undergird how this country thinks about it.

In this short spot, Elon shares his thoughts on the situation in last week in Philly where some 60 black children were kicked out of a pool because it was felt "that a lot of kids would change the complexion … and the atmosphere of the club."

Anyway, here's an overview of the situation here on Jack & Jill Politics.
