More and more we need to see
Black swimmers. The first Black swimmer
got the ball rolling. Let’s keep it going.
I know once the ball rolls it has to stop
at a certain point, but if it stops
someone needs to be there to roll
it further. Same thing with swimming.
Apply that analogy and therefore
it will be MORE black swimmers.
FOr right now, I’m just going to
inform you of a specific BLACK swimmer.
Black swimmer, Sabir Muhammad
was often mistaken for a basketball
player because of his height. He’s 6 foot 7.
Most of the time black people in the
inner city played either basketball
Muhammad would swim with Tommy
Jackson. There were 3 boys there who was
his age so he finished the relay. Also
he graduated college with an MBA in finance.
Sabir completed the 1996 Olympic
Trials at the top 16. Muhammad has
founded the “Swim for Life”, a program
designed to teach inner city kids
how to swim. USA swimming , a
governing body of all club swim
teams is using his program as
an example for Make a Splash
The more black swimmers we
see the more black people PUT
TO SHAME those who think black people
cannot swim. Ofcourse, us black people
can swim. We know how to do everything
