Are there isolated incidents where "whites" are better than "blacks" in basketball, certain positions in football but that's the norm.
There are currently no white corner backs in the NFL and only about a dozen white wide recievers and tailbacks. The most athletic NFL players are
also black (Julius Peppers, Jevon Kearse, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, Antonio Gates, Mike Vick). Look at the NBA, the most athletic players are black
(Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Steve Francis, Lebron James, Dwayne Wade). Are there white players who happen to be very skilled and just as effective
in both sports as whites? Sure, look at guys like Dirk and Peja in the NBA, Patrick Kerney in the NFL. However, nobody can honestly say that these
fit in the mold of the elite pro athlete (Now, they may be elite players but not athletes).
I still don't know how people can deny this parity exists. Also for why blacks don't dominant a lot of winter sports - My guess is because many
blacks do not grow up on the slopes or in the skate rink - instead they grow up with a basketball or a football. In the world, far less blacks live
in regions which promote these sports.
