Summer Scandal

Racist Pool Seeks Redo

Too little, too late? The Philadelphia-area pool that has been under fire for turning away a large group of minority summer-camp students is planning to re-invite them to swim. The Creative Steps summer camp had arranged for its 65 mostly black and Hispanic children to swim at The Valley Club, a private suburban swim club located in between two predominantly white towns. The swim-club president had originally justified his decision to ban the campers by saying they would change the pool's "complexion."
