‘Racist’ pool safety poster spurs apology from Red Cross

The Red Cross has apologized for an aquatic safety poster that illustrates safe and dangerous poolside behaviors. Safe behaviors are “Cool” and unsafe behaviors are “Not Cool,” and if you look at it all of the kids who are “Cool” are white, while most of the kids who are “Not Cool” are not white. Except for the teenager in shades sneaking a beer into the pool. The Red Cross has also asked their member aquatic centers to remove the poster. Basically, the Red Cross printed a giant microagression and distributed around the country. Nice work, Red Cross.
