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.

my answer: it's so obvious that black people are faster than white. 7th grade at my old School was the highest before you graduate to big boy school (high school), and I was the fastest person in the whole junior school (100m sprint) when I was in 7th.. except for the ONE black kid!!! hahahaha! He was just a tiny bit faster.
When you watch olympic events, all of the sprints are done by black guys.. Theres not a white guy to be seen. If there is its only at the very start, then by about 1/4 of the way through he is out of the screens view left behind lol!
I think its a bit dumb to say "they bred the strongest black males with females when they were slaves", or "they were forced to outrun lions so that made them faster". The logical answer is that they obviously have a different genetic makeup at some point in the lineage, I remember being told they had an ability to process red blood cells faster which helped them get more oxygen to their brain and muscles or some baloney ulitamately meant they could run faster. That is the most believable explanation I have heard so far... none of this selective breeding bsedit on 3-7-2012 by knightwhosaysnih because: (no reason given)

Sports that rely on soley speed and strength like weight lifting and sprinting will be dominated by those who have superior genetics regardless of race.
It's very possible some races have higher gene expression in certain areas than others. That gene expression could be related to body composition like in a mesomorph, that would allow them to excel at activities that required these traits.
On the other hand, this will only get you so far. In sports that require alot of technique, the biggest and strongest aren't always the best, in fact, it's a pretty even field. Look at the brazilian jiu jitsu world championships for example, and watch smaller guys beat larger guys on the regular.

“Since the dawn of history the negro has owned the continent of Africa – rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet. Yet he never picked one up from the dust until a white man showed to him its glittering light. His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled. A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour. In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud. With league on league of ocean strand and miles of inland seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail.”— Charles Darwin
“I have given my life to alleviate the sufferings of Africa.There is something that all White men who have lived here like I have must learn and know: that these individualsare a sub-race. They have neither the mental or emotionalabilities to equate or share equally with White men in any
functions of our civilization. I have given my life to try tobring unto them the advantages which our civilization mustoffer, but I have become well aware that we must retainthis status: White the superior, and they the inferior. Forwhenever a White man seeks to live among them as their
equals, they will destroy and devour him, and they willdestroy all his work. And so for any existing relationshipor any benefit to this people, let White men, from anywherein the world, who would come to help Africa, remember thatyou must maintain this status: you the master and they the
inferior, like children whom you would help or teach. Neverfraternize with them as equals. Never accept them as yoursocial equals or they will devour you. They will destroy you.”...Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr Albert Schweitzer
And thousands of years of history between Asias, Europeans, and Africans tend to disagree with the notion of Africans being superior. Not only are they not superior, but they are a drain on a progressive society, according to our ancestors and most scientist.edit on 3-7-2012 by Cavalier because: (no reason given)
