Hey Donald Trump, African Americans Heard You Loud and Clear

1101 W. Montgomery Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19122

    OPINION: Hey Donald Trump, African Americans Heard You Loud and Clear
    Kenyatta: Trump wants to know what African Americans have to lose by taking a chance on him. The answer: Everything. Late last week, in his umpteenth "foot in mouth" moment, Donald J. Trump rhetorically asked African Americans a question that in my mind perfectly synthesized this election and Trump's used car salesman pitch.

    Louisiana aftermath: Anonymous devastation
    Seven storms, including three hurricanes, have earned names so far this year in the Atlantic Basin by generating winds of at least 39 m.p.h. So far, none have a splash in the United States. A mass of convection is organizing near Puerto Rico, threatening the island and, potentially, South Florida with heavy rains.

Philadelphia's 70 free public pools (the most per-capita of any city in the country) begin to shut down for the season on Friday, just as temperatures are set to soar, with triple-digit heat indices forecasted for Saturday and Sunday.

  • I love children and would love to be a lifeguard in any one of the pools......if I could swim. I'm sure I would be turned down if I contacted the city. However, if you are saying that the city would take anyone to be a lifeguard, then the problem's already solved. Dennis, need I remind you that closing of the pools in such hot weather is no sarcastic matter but a very serious one.

  • Gina, I am in total agreement with you. Furthermore, the city does this every year.
    Why not hire as Gina has stated, it would give the teens a nice summer job and they could work up to Labor Day. Gina's thoughts are excellent and I hope and pray the powers that be take heed.
