I live in Louisiana.
LaDarius Stewart is a very common name.

No clue why.

Did anyone else see the first episode of this?
They just confirmed the myth that black people can't swim.
The only 2 people to fail the first mission were 2 of the 3 black people, and they failed because they couldn't swim 30ft to a waiting boat.

the reason they can't swim is because they spend most of their time trying to pronounce their names.... dear god....those names...

what separates man from its ape relatives is its innate ability to swim. this is proven by mans ability of holding its breath for much longer times than apes, more webbed feet and hands, and less hairy skin. even at birth, an infant place in water instinctively knows to kick its feet and hands

This just reminded me of one Darwins aword : ``(31 August 1995, Egypt) Six people drowned Monday while trying to rescue a chicken that had fallen into a well in southern Egypt. An 18 year old farmer was the first to descend into the 60-foot well. He drowned, apparently after an undercurrent in the water pulled him down, police said his sister and two brothers, none of whom could swim well, went in one by one to help him, but also drowned. Two elderly farmers then came to help. But they apparently were pulled by the same undercurrent. The bodies of the six were later pulled out of the well in the village of Nazlat Imara, 240 miles south of Cairo. The chicken was also pulled out. It survived.``

Because its the Dad that teaches the kids to swim generally.

So black kids rarely get taught.
