Best Avatar Community Kayla Ann Stockman 8 days ago • That one with the hotel owner pouring acid in the pool made me feel physically ill. 50 Reply Share › Kim Hernandez Kayla Ann Stockman • 8 days ago How do we know it's acid? Because it is written? I looked at the picture and found nothing to prove it. able to use the pool then......right? 13 5 Reply Share › Brian Schwanke Kim Hernandez • 7 days ago It was a documented case, it happened quite often. They would put enough in to irritate the skin and drive the blacks out of the hotel, then close the pool for a day while they added enough fresh water to dilute the acid to a point of cleaning the pool without harming people. 24 Reply Share › Kim Hernandez Brian Schwanke • 7 days ago Brian...don't know you from Adam but I'd like to thank you for taking time to respond like an adult...when someone talks like that people may be more willing to listen. What you just did was make sense! enough...right? Others think calling people trolls makes sense...anyway....thanks for taking your time! 24 2 Reply Brian Schwanke Share › Kim Hernandez • 7 days ago Y our welcome, I have a treasure trove of such useless information. 8 Reply Kim Hernandez Share › Brian Schwanke • 7 days ago LOL Reply Tiberius Share › Kim Hernandez • 7 days ago The picture isn't all bad. There is a white guy swimming in the pool with everyone else. comforting the black ladies who are in distress. I do not know enough of the alleged practice of putting acid
  19. 19. into pools in which black people are swimming, but I can clearly see from the picture that at least one man has the brains and intelligence to see that skin colour is nothing and irrelevant. the bad...even though there is a lot of it. 11 1 glorybe2 Reply Share › Tiberius • 7 days ago The blind hatred in racists tends to make them think they are doing the right thing when they are hurting the race they dislike. Racism is a strange disease and it really is a disease. For example a white racist might offend a black man and get a punch in the shout. To the racist that punch is proof that he was right to drive the black man into a rage. Even after the horrors during WWII were well exposed to the European population there were still quite a few that felt not enough Jews had been slaughtered. It is s strange problem that resists solutions. 5 Reply Barbara Share › Tiberius • 3 days ago Well said! I agree with you. But the treatment of black people was still despicable. Reply Ginnie Share › Kim Hernandez • 4 days ago I agree with you Kim! Reply kim hernandez Share › Ginnie • 4 days ago Arm yourself Ginnie.,..they're not going to like you! lol They get so upset and I haven't said ONE discriminatory thing....talk about up tight...right? Reply Ginnie Share › kim hernandez • 4 days ago Oh well......I'm tough enough to take it and still smile. ~: ) Reply Ginnie Share › Brian Schwanke • 4 days ago Kudos, Brian! Right on! Reply Jennifer Share › Kim Hernandez • 8 days ago Sometimes when hatred is that strong good judgement is pushed to the side. Truly blinded by hatred. It's not that difficult to believe, sadly. Worse crimes have committed, insensible ones, too. 8 Jean Reply Share › Kim Hernandez • 6 days ago Uh, the photo was snapped by a photog who worked for either Assoc. Press or UPI. The reporter on the scene got the details (name of man with jug, why he was pouring it into the pool, etc. News editors back in the day took a very dim view of reporters and photographers "creating" their own news items. The penalty for doing so was that you were fired and never got to work for another news outlet. (Today, they could work for several news and internet outlets, but we won't go there today...) 6 ash Reply Share › Kim Hernandez • 2 days ago there are names for people like you... white supremacist! There are documented cases of this happening at various establishments, are you naive or just uneducated? Reply Share › kim hernandez ash • 16 hours ago ash....you bore me....LOL Reply Angela Scalf Share › Kim Hernandez • 3 days ago They didn't care if they could use the pool again...all they cared is that the black people in the pool suffered...How easily we forget the atrocities of our past. Open a book and read about the past....it will help prevent us from reliving it! Reply Irene Share › Kayla Ann Stockman • 8 days ago It is horrible, but from the little I know, wouldn't the acid just be diluted? If it was really strong, it might irritate their skin after it's been diluted, but is it that easy to get strong acids? I'm more worried about it splashing onto their skin - they look really close to it. 1 1 KR Reply Share › Irene • 7 days ago Y ou use muriatic acid in a pool. It's the same stuff that drain cleaner is made of. and is extremely dangerous (and easy to obtain). Y ou don't swim in a pool at the same time acid is being poured into it. It has to circulate to be safe. 4 Reply Share › glorybe2 Irene • 7 days ago It doesn't dilute fast enough and is dangerous. Municipal pools sometimes stock powerful eye drops as swimmers sometimes hit pockets of chlorine or acid that have failed to mix with the water in a calm pool. 3 Reply Share ›
  20. 20. glorybe2 Irene • 3 days ago Walk into any pool supply store and you can but muriatic acid easily without an ID. It is not the strongest acid in the world. It is wonderful for removing sprinkler. rust stains from the sides of painted, concrete homes and fences. If it got on my skin I simply washed it off with the hose a bit. I used to apply it to concrete with a paint brush and hose it off almost instantly and all the rust was gone. Reply Michael Anderson Share › Kayla Ann Stockman • 6 days ago I bet the tragic photo of the melted mannequins didn't bother you one bit. Racist! 1 2 Reply mr_kev Share › Kayla Ann Stockman • 6 days ago Bet it was chlorine. 1 4 nope Reply Share › Kayla Ann Stockman • 4 days ago Oh, you're such an activist, go you Reply Share › Kayla Ann Stockman nope • 4 days ago Excuse me? Reply Avatar Jordan Bartholme Share › 11 days ago • That was one hell of a snowball fight. 19 Reply Share › socialdiscard Jordan Bartholme • 10 days ago No kidding, when I was young some people would put rocks in the snowballs, and/or make them hard packed ice balls. Both would do that kind that damage. 2 Reply chexay Share › Jordan Bartholme • 5 days ago I've seen that same photo used elsewhere captioned as bare knuckle boxers. Who to believe? 1 Avatar Olivia Reply Share › 13 days ago • This is amazing! So many different emotions depicted throughout the list! Where and how did you get these? 10 Avatar Reply Randy Share › 8 days ago • Is that Willard Scott as the first Ronald McDonald? Sure looks like him. 9 Reply Share › Ranhimgu Randy • 7 days ago Y es it is. That was his first gig. 1 Avatar David Reply Share › 7 days ago • The picture from Sweden is actually just before we switched to right hand traffic. At 0450 all traffic stopped and everyone parked to the left. over the next ten minutes everyone (directed by police) carefully move to the opposite side of the road, and at 0500 on all radiostations the new law was proclaimed. It was actually a lot of preparations since car headlights are offset to the side, so all cars had had to have their headlights reset, and partially covered with stickers that were removed after the change. And all traffic signs had to be moved, and so forth. 6 Avatar Reply Yelena Share › 8 days ago • People, don't feed the troll...it wants "proof" from an incident that occurred over nearly 50 years ago, clearly the terror in the children's eyes is not enough. It could have been acid, could have been water, who knows, but the point was to terrorize and frighten them and thats why its such a powerful photo. 9 Avatar 1 Michael Reply • Share › 13 days ago Great stuff, thanks! 5 Avatar Reply Share › Nadine Lumley Real • 7 days ago I think the one of the mom supposedly with sign for sale of kids is a fraud. Do you really think that mom had the means to get a sign, paint it, and plant it, let alone she could read and write? 3 Reply Shannon Share › Nadine Lumley Real • 3 days ago It's a real photo. There was recently an article following up on it. The kids were adopted out, then she had more children (she was pregnant at the time the photo was taken). :( I'm afraid I don't have a link to the recent article, though. 1 Avatar Frank • Reply Share › 7 days ago Kim Hernandez, you're an irritant, a pebble in the shoe, a mosquito, a gnat, congratulations. Y ou spent your time being stupid, on
  21. 21. purpose. Hilarious. Y ou did indeed show that when people are irritated they get angry. I'm not laughing because it makes me sad that someone like you exists. 5 1 Reply Me10 Share › Frank • 5 days ago So because Kim says things that Frank thinks are not nice, Frank feels at ease saying things that aren't nice. A strange lesson. 3 Reply Natty Dreads Share › Frank • 6 days ago Sir, where do you live? Is it acceptable to speak to people in this way where you come from? 2 Reply Kim Hernandez Share › Frank • 7 days ago LOL! 1 Reply yarnm57 Share › Kim Hernandez • 4 days ago I continually see the worst hatred in reader comments whenever the subject of race comes up. I don't understand the need to belittle people of other races or to make excuses for racism amongst one's own people. Grow up and get along! 1 1 Reply glorybe2 Share › yarnm57 • 3 days ago In times past people usually attacked people of their own race. For example American Indians only had other Indian tribes to raid, pillage and rape. In early Africa black folks only had other black folks to attack. In England the attack might be against the Irish, the Scotch, the French or the Germans or even the Welsh but those folks are all of the same race. When societies became more racially mixed the attacks often focused on attacking a different race. In India it was usually attacking people of the other religion. In China it was a conflict between the snow white Chinese of Manchuria and the slightly more tanned Chinese of the southern parts of China and every now and then a battle with the Japanese. To us in the west those folks seem to be of the same race but not to them at all. Reply Avatar Kim Hernandez • Share › 8 days ago Why do people ALWAY S jump on the race card band wagon? The acid in the pool pic got more comments than the others....why didn't anyone say anyrhing bout putting that baby out the window?? LOL I'm sorry, but without proof....I can't say it is acid he is pouring in the pool but people WANT to believe that is what it is. Sad. 4 1 BA Reply Share › Kim Hernandez • 8 days ago The hotelier's name was James Brock. The photo was taken in St. Augustine, FL during a protest organized by Dr. King. Brock himself is the one who said he was pouring acid into the pool to get the protesters out. All easily verifiable information. 11 Reply daized79 Share › BA • 3 days ago Thanks! I was wondering why he let them in the pool in the first place. color. but that they were illegally trespassing his pool reserved for paying customers. couldn't actually be paying customer. Still there were better forms of protest and your explanan makes him slightly less criminal. 2 Reply Share › glorybe2 BA • 7 days ago In the 1950s there were barber shops in Ft. Lauderdale that had signs saying no niggers or Indians allowed. And Ft. Lauderdale was probably less racist than most other towns in the US. Meanwhile the top hotels on Miami beach would not rent a room to a Jew nor a Cuban. Things were so screwed up that it was hard to even know who you were supposed to hate. 1 Reply carlaeh Share › glorybe2 • 5 days ago My husband was in the Navy in the late 60s. He said some of the hotels in Jacksonville, Florida posted signs which stated "No dogs or sailors." Reply kim Share › carlaeh • 3 days ago WHAT??? No support for the dogs or sailors?? Because people think they have to say nice things and in support of black people all the time or else there is something wrong with them and I'm not in agreement....doesn't make me racist...just don't like that I'm supposed to feel and think like others? but I'll think for myself...I don't need help! Reply glorybe2 Share › carlaeh • 4 days ago I think you got a hold of some older information. During WWII there were huge numbers of sailors in Newport News, Va.. Some locals got frustrated at sailors on their lawns and posted signs saying no dogs or sailors allowed on lawn. It is quite odd that despite the patriotism of the hour that there were times when the public turned against the war effort even while our soldiers were dieing in large numbers.
