Seriously, Y’all – What’s With All The Lifeguarding?

by Will

My open letter to all White people ages 14-25:

Why is it that you ALL, at some point in your lives, have been lifeguards? I mean it. I defy you to find one White person in this demographic who has never been employed as a lifeguard. Is it something deemed at birth? Do you have a special affinity for aquatics? Is it like the White Selective Service? Are y’all drafted? It’s not a big deal, but it’s just something I’ve noticed over the years. Wondered if anyone could shed some light on this….
