So what? I think he is correct. It is fairly obvious that black people are generally more athletic than white people. Faster twitch muscles, more muscle tone, less bodyfat retention. They are also more prone to certain health problems like sickle-cell anemia and diabetes.

This is the problem with racial debates. To admit differences is to be racist. Why? We are obviously different.

The lack of understanding racial diversity in modern society should now be considered a social taboo, not the other way around, especially for yutes (youths) who receive their education in public schools. Access to factual information, covering the many physical and ancestral differences found among our races, is available on a scale and format (internet) that was not available for older generations.

Hopefully the newest generations entering adulthood will allow their children the freedom to follow their curiosity and answer their questions about racial differences, without the worry of being socially shunned for what they may come to understand.

His golf game is pretty damn good too!

You are kidding, right?

The stories that I heard was that he used to lose a lot of money betting on himself golfing.

There is definitely a "slave" gene in some black people, but not all. It is no secret that slave owners would consistently breed the biggest/strongest male slave with the biggest/strongest female slave in order to produce harder working slaves.

Proof today? Well, other then the black super athletes, I personally know a handful of black men who DO NOT lift weights and DO NOT have a good diet consistent on macros and micros, all staples in order to have GREEK GOD physic. Yet these black men have these Greek god physics and they don't work for them at all, it just comes naturally. Now, anyone who knows ANYTHING about nutrition BASICS understands this goes against everything the human race and modern medicine know about the body and the physic.

Again, important to note, this doesn't include everyone. There are plenty of black men and women who are fat and soft just like the rest of the world that doesn't exercise. There are "lucky" ones though, and yes it's lucky to have 6% body fat and be ripped without any effort at all.

So do you think or know that these men are decendants of slaves who where selectively bread
if so do you think they could beat Micheal Johnson in a race ?

I haven't heard that? Could be true! He is really a clutch player though, so if I was betting on him to sink a putt or not, I would bet on him sinking it.

Celebrity Golf Handicap Indexes

Kenny G: plus-0.6
Brett Favre: plus-0.8
Michael Jordan: 1.2
Samuel L. Jackson: 4.9
Justin Timberlake: 6
Bill Murray: 7.5
Celine Dion: 17
Snoop Dogg: 18
Arnold Schwarzenegger: 25
Derek Jeter: 30

Seems respectable to me.

Humans have many subspecies with varying amounts of physical and mental measurable differences.

You commonly call these " Races" but Race does Not exist. Race is a lie, a made up classification to differentiate between the various subspecies of the species Homo Sapiens without making them feel inferior to each other by pointing out their differences.

In truth, those who are descendants of Africans are a totally different subspecies from North American Caucasians, as the Chinese Asians are a different sub-species from Japanese Asians.

We know this to be true because we can measure the physical and mental differences in each subspecies - in exactly the same way as all dogs are dogs but we make distinction between German Shepherds and French Poodles.

The problem with Scientific Classification is they lump all sub-species of humans into the same species while never actually making the distinction between their various facets ( as race is not an official biological scientific classification.) They do do this with dog sub-species as noted here

Why do it for dogs and not for humans? Humans can be influenced by emotion and dogs cannot ( in the sense that your call a dog or a human out by it's distinct physical and mental characteristics.)

It's not just the looks that matter on the outside. All humans are not created equal. The subspecies of the humans from Africa have many internal differences to their North American cousins subspecies. They only appear to be from the same Genus classification Homo, because of their many similarities. A Zenith and a RCA are both TV sets but they are both different on the inside.

Make no mistake, variations created of human subspecies are not dependent on environment alone as many would have you believe. It this were true, human subspecies who move to other climates and environmental conditions would quickly breed out those features that make them distinct. In reality, This does not happen any more than a German Shepard ceases to be a German Shepard no matter where it is in the world.

The Olympic athlete above fails to take into account that he is a different subspecies from white peoples. It's like a bulldog saying hes superior to a french poodle. While many factors can account for these differences, there has never been identified and proven any athletic gene in Africans that is different than and athletic gene in whites. Many white peoples of different subspecies do exhibit many of the same physical characteristics of the African runners, they are just not popularized in Olympic sports. Michael Johnson's statement was more kin to a racists remark than a fact about the differences between runners.

He was a poor gambler maybe, instead of a poor golfer.
I had heard of him losing $10,000 when he didn't drop the single putt that he bet on.

I'll admit that a MAJORITY of my college colleagues had the same views of why African Americans were so good at sports, as my confederate flag waving roommate said "We bred them like that". Which is true if you think about it even though it is messed up. When the Germans lost a majority of their "good racially pure" athletes to black African Americans in the 36' Olympics in Berlin they blamed America for basically for cheating because we were using "african americans that have been modified through selective breeding and eugenics", which was an American invention BTW.

What was interesting though that I Iearned last weekend at a BBQ while we were talking about the first person who drowned at Lake Tapps was an African American and why blacks can't seem to swim well was that somebody told me that have a "higher bone density", which makes sense because a majority of them are physically superior than us. Personally I thought that they couldn't swim because in more urban areas there were less swimming pools or parents to take young African Americans to swimming lessons when they were younger. Now I think that it's a combination of both.

Anyways I'm just looking at this through a purely analytical view and now through a rascists. (I hate saying this since people should understand already:@@

The source I mentioned in this post, do in fact give support to your statements.

I just read the subspecies post just now and I have something to say about that.

6 years ago in college my Chinese biology professor was explaining that species are considered different if they have grown up on different continents/ islands/ land masses etc. away from there parent species and have developed different character traits such as colors etc... (I think he was using birds that migrated to a different island devloping into a different species as an example). Even if they can still breed and produce viable offspring.

I pointed out that his theory would mean that different groups of people separated on different continents would separate "Homo Sapiens" into different species, which he said I was wrong. (Even though I used his exact same hypothesis but related it to people). Followed by a response that didn't even answer the reason why I was wrong

its retarded to say they don't have superior musculature. It's a myth about the anaconda thing.

I read that they have longer tendons in their legs. I don't know how that would help them....?

Asian women supposedly have extra vaginal muscles.

I think these are ALL myths though with the exception of the longer tendons in blacks.

My opinion, Blacks have more muscles than Whites, but Whites are slightly more intelligent than Blacks.

So it's even playing fields here.

Blacks are the Strength people

Whites are the intellects.

One, the German's were fascists with a major superiority complex. They blamed everyone and everything except themselves.

Two, white people stereotypically have larger bone structures than black people which throws the idea of bone density making them overall superior out the window.

Maybe better runners, but neither superior nor inferior. Just better at some things than others.

Okay if blacks have a faster twitch, why is that it is mainly whites dominate the quarter back position in the NFL and the pitching position in the MLB? Remember Tony Romo has the fastest release in the NFL.

Making no generalizations as to intellectual potential, historically those positions were more academic than athletic. Look at Doug Flutie, he certainly isn't an athletic specimen, but he was a leader on the field, and he made things happen. Look at Troy Aikman. He was a great QB, but just about anybody standing as tall as him, and learning the playbook could have stood behind that hall of fame line and been successful.

Over time, those positions are now evolving to be not only academic, but also athletic. Look at Michael Vick, Cam Newton, and RGIII. They are changing the game! A black athlete can learn the academic portion of the game, and then use raw athleticism to dominate the game, whereas an academic white athlete cannot become the same caliber of athlete just through training.

Wait, so if a white person were to claim that they are superior mentally to blacks because of genetics that person would be considered a racist. Didn't Jimmy the Greek claim the same thing as Michael Johnson and receive a #storm for it?

Race is a social construct arbitrarily imposed on a wide range of diverse traits in human populations. By "social construct", I mean that its intended purpose is for social means and population statistics, that's it. So whatever is socially acceptable in certain cultures is applicable.

There are no "race genes".

What you describe is not genetics, it's environmental. Either way, that's not what is being argued here. you need to put some actual proof on the table.

And environment influences genetics. Ex: living in a darker climate changes your skin colour. A white person needs less melatonin because he sees much less of the sun at it's most extreme; a black person, conversely, needs more melatonin to handle the rays of the sun.

The same could be argued (though no explanation currently exists, to my knowledge) for most or all other physical features, biological propensities, etc.

I think you mean "melanin" not "melatonin" which is produced by the pineal gland.
