    of the local white community will not view this decision favorably.  They will see it as the courts giving $1.1 million to undeserving minority kids who succeeded in getting their swim club closed.  While a victory for civil rights, this may harden the racial divisions in the white Philly suburbs and may make it harder for the President to win votes there.  

    I'm not saying that it is right, but that is the way that I think it will be perceived.

      10K is a lot of coin to be tossing around.  

      All racists are cowards.  They would not be voting for president Obama anyway.  Most will just STFU and keep their nasty opinions to themselves. Maybe a few will become enlightened and realize the error of their hatred.
