Well the city of Phoenix is taking affirmative action to new levels or maybe just it's logical extension officials are recruiting minorities we lifeguards -- public pools.
Even if they're not strong swimmers it's all of course in the service of the diversity cult so why wouldn't these jobs to go to people who can say.
Swim well joining us as public relations strategist for the big breakthrough and editor and publisher at conservative black chick dot com -- all right -- result.
Good morning guys are -- -- do you stand with Phoenix is doing here that they are trying to recruit.
Minorities blacks Hispanics.
-- -- -- And be lifeguards at the city's 29 swimming pools even if they are not really -- swimmers they say the city says they will train them.
To become good.
Well if I was a parent I'm probably put on notice right now I'm not can be sending my kids just went.
In the Phoenix public pools but what's preposterous about this is.
I thought it was an April fool's joke right.
And this city the reason that -- the city of Phoenix gives is that they're too many white qualified -- guys.
And what we think is because mostly Hispanics and blacks use our pool.
We need life guards that are swimmers can relate to air but if you're drowning you want to relate to a lifeguard is gonna -- -- right -- Well that's that was the questioning why do we care what color are lifeguards aren't exactly is there any real evidence social science data.
That shows people don't wanna be saved by people who have a different element contact -- Tucker you are trying that -- you're putting common citizen -- right.
All of -- should be qualified for whatever job that we hold in America are particularly at a pool.
You want to pull being safeguarded by what -- qualified lifeguard -- -- Phoenix is saying not -- -- we'd rather have people drowned or risk being you know drowning in our polls.
All in the name of diversity it's the most perverse thing I've ever not mad at me.
Let's declare they're not saying that they want that they think -- -- -- putting any of the kids in danger what they're saying is that the majority of the people who use.
Their city pools are Hispanic and black.
Add up Asian and that there's a language barrier they say between the current white lifeguards and the population who uses the -- I can't how -- I'm a black American I have no language barrier with a white person not talking to you and -- her right now.
We seem to be speaking English.
I think it's more they said what I read is that.
Lifeguards that that there that blacks and Hispanics in -- -- you know some agents can relate to I still don't understand when you're swimming you're not doing a whole lot of talking to the lifeguards will but this isn't just.
This is that this is the same rationale the propped up Jim Crow for eighty years right you wanna -- -- these poor people look like you.
You wanna stay on the bus or so this is angry -- it is the same waterfront as people look like you it's still sitting.
Right well my parents -- during segregation Tucker.
And they didn't really like having to be on the beach or -- polls and seeing there you know seeing white people be able to use a different -- so we're once again.
Phoenix is making no sense and like you said they're they're -- -- they're forcing some kind of segregation but at the same time.
They're saying well no you know we have too many white qualified lifeguard I mean that's reminded me of Mitt Romney's binder full -- women that the liberal media mocked.
Mitt Romney was saying hey guys -- lot.
I -- binder full of qualified women working in my cabinet because I think I have -- to many meant but he wanted qualified candidates.
That's sort -- you know that's a conservatives are about that's comments that's right this is irrational.
It's not good for the safety at Phoenix residents and really what they need to be doing is putting resources into swimming classes because I just -- in with this.
Hispanics and blacks.
Tend to not be as good swimmers as whites and many more black Americans and Hispanics actually that's kids don't know how to -- they don't have access to resources to learn that's what got -- this.
-- -- Thanks so much -- -- -- all right thank you think.
