    The police department in this seaside town has dropped its swimming requirement for new officers -- in part, to recruit more blacks to the force.

    North Miami officials said knowing how to swim is not really necessary. And they said the requirement has discouraged some blacks in this Haitian-American enclave from joining the department.

    "They have been intimidated because they don't swim. Very few of them swim," Mayor Joe Celestin, who is Haitian-American.

    In fact, experts said blacks in general are less likely than whites to be proficient swimmers.

    Can you?
    It seems to me you're drowning in a sea of racial hatred.
    I'd be happy to give you a swimming lesson.

    I bet you would like to give me some "swimming" lessons, no thanks I like girls.

    If you want to teach people how to swim, try teaching blacks because they don't know how.
