Racism is never ok! On 8/4/2017 I was racially discriminated against at Drexel swim club. I was a new member and I paid to give my daughter a sweet 16 birthday party there. We were treated different than the Caucasian members. We did everything that was asked of us yet we were told yous don't belong here! They stated ( you need to go back to your own neighborhood) someone asked where did they come from. We were told we couldn't sit in the front. They told us a Dj was not allowed However every party they had there a DJ was around. They asked us to turn our music down and we did. The DJ played a song with profanity in it and I can understand them being upset about that, I told him please play only clean songs no profanity. Then they began yelling at us saying their members are leaving because we are here and it was our fault. They called the cops shut our music off and told us to leave. They kept following us around the park harassing us about everything even where the kids could sit, and yelling saying we don't belong here and we need to leave. Saying go back to where y'all came from. They left our children crying asking why they don't belong. They need to be investigated and held accountable for their actions. I was a member and paid my money just like the other members!  RACISM IS NEVER OK ! My child has to live with this horrible experience the rest of her life! These children did nothing wrong! They simply wanted to celebrate dance, swim and have fun !
