Since when do inner cities not have public pools? Every city around me has a public pool and the few times I've been there it's been loaded with black people. This guy is so incredibly backwards and stupid that he doesn't deserve a thought out response.

The guy is a complete idot and did this article to get a reaction. One of the main reason phelps was getting so much attention is the fact he won EIGHT gold metals beating the previous record.

Public swimming pools and intensive swimming coaching are not the same thing.

He never says anything about intensive swimming coaches.

Why is that?
Throwing out Chad Johnsonís "Liberty City Swim Team," there arenít pools in the inner city. So blacks, who are the best athletes (as evident in the in the NBA, NFL, Track, and MLB before blacks stopped playing), generally live in Americaís inner cities are eliminated from becoming swimmerís because there are no pools
Also most cities and larger schools have a swim team and if black people chose to join the swim team then they could and they would have free access to intensive swimming coaches.

Yes, but yelling about cats and their plans for world domination does not constitute a rebuttal. Even the Armageddon hobos understand that much.

I know, I was just pointing out that access to a pool isn't gonna make you a world class swimmer.
I agree that the guy was talking out his arse.

I pretty much read till the last sentence expecting this to be turned into something clever or funny due to this disclaimer. What a waste.

Yeah he's a dumbass. He should really reword that part tho because the way it's written makes it sound like if they had access to a pool then they would be world class swimmers.

Think he would care to eplain Cullen Jones and the fact he was on the relay team that helped Phelps win the first or second gold medal?

Here is a bio on Cullen:
