#1 In other aquatic news you can actually believe: Hannah Barron goes fish'n (no swim cap)

#2 Another excuse masquerading a simple choice: learn to swim or keep your hairstyle. After you learn to swim, you don't need to get your hair wet.

#5 If it’s that important, find a product designer to design a swim cap to accomodate a much larger volume of hair, set up a company to manufacture them, and rake in the dough. There are companies that manufacture special products for African-American hair, cosmetics for African-American skin tones, clothing for African-American body types and taste, magazines for African-American audiences, and musicians from and for African-American audiences, some of whom have later caught the attention of broader audiences. The black community has never waited for white folks to get around to meeting their needs before, which suggests either a certain lack of imagination now or SJW posturing on the part of this coach.

#6 Yeah, and then that chlorine is gonna bleach the hair. They might end up with blond streaks in it.

#9 The hair issue doesn't explain why the black fellas don't swim so much.

#11 "For black women, hair is a long-standing point of pride, self-expression, status, and heritage. Some women will spend hundreds of dollars‐and sit for hours‐to get box braids or install a weave."

Which way do you want it, ladies?

#12 Swim caps also don't work for people wearing Royal Regalia like the Queen of England! Lèse-majesté! Off with their heads!

#14 Also... take me back to childhood and tell me that I would spend the next several years swimming several thousand miles at reasonable speed with my head perfectly insulated. Now watch as I try to drown myself.
