Will never forget taking a kid from inner city swimming. "Can you swim ?" I asked. "Yes" was the response, and being only 19 yrs old, I believed him. He would have been yet another casualty had not 2 experienced swimmers been with him. This kind of ignorance can truly be extended to judge just what is going on amongst urban youth. There is the very practical knowledge they lack, and the more subtle knowledge (such as how to point a handgun) that ensures they will die by their own means or others. Yet, they flaunt their ignorance as a badge of victimhood, and the billions spent trying to educate them into the "good life" is re-billioned into supporting BLM and a myriad other enabling programs. Sick of hearing about kids drowning (and grown adults who should know better). Not teaching your kids how to swim is a form of child abuse, and adults not knowing how, constitutes willfully ignorance.
