I can swim! And I know loads of black people who can as well! Plus, practically everyone in the Caribbean can swim....
I know
it makes me sad that I can't swim. I guess cos in Nigeria(where I'm from), swimming pools aint that big....or they weren't that big when I was younger.... I shall learn how to swim one day and be one of those people who make the stereotype not true.:yep:

arrgh proove me wrong then. lol
And I know loadsa nigerian people can swim I'm just like the only one...tis sad
but yeah, maybe I had a deprived childhood or something cos my primary school in nigeria didn't do swimming. And I went to/still go secondary school here and I'm guessing they assumed everyone can swim or something.
And hotels in nigeria have pools, but as a whole you don't get places just for swimming like you do here, the only places in abuja that I knew that had swimming pools were hotels.

maybe te stereotype should be changed to black people don't play ice hockey:p:
