I don't like people insinuating that the reason Africans 'dominate' sports is because they worked harder due to tough economic background. That is completely untrue. It's just a simpleton reasoning because not all athletes had tough economic background.
As I said before, it's not a racism conversation to acknowledge that people of African decent have 'different' physical structure than non-Africans. We can't just say we're all the same and just move on. We can't just ignore the fact that people from tropical areas have elongated limbs compared to arctic people. Can't ignore that Africans have less body fat and more muscle than non-African(scientifically proven and ackknowledge). We can't ignore that so many black people never work out in their lives but very muscular. We can't ignore that black people are higher jumpers. Jumping ability is not a learned skill it's natural.
Also, there are so many black kids from 12 years old and on that are being recruited early by their local junior high school and high school solely because of their natural physical talent. Those kids are in their infancy and haven't develop any work ethics so you can't say they work hard than non-Africans. I don't know any 12 year old thinking they need to work hard and play sport to get out of their 'condition'. Most of them are just having fun with their friends. The last thing on their mind is their 'condition'.
Let's not be in denial here.
I submit to you,
I seriously could go on and on. But I doubt you will even seriously read the articles I submitted.
I understand your confusion. I really do. You cant help yourself because of American history and the eugenics movements of the late 19th century. But as a fellow sports fan and Panthers fan, I gotta let you know that your complete and utter lack of knowledge on this subject is frankly embarrassing to us all that are participating in this conversation. If you still feel so strong about it, show me some research done on this subject that enforces your point. I am pretty sure you understand that you cant claim scientific proof from casual observation. If you do even a small amount of research on athletes post Clinton Administration and athletes prior you can see a stark difference in the skin color make up at all levels of competition. Also you can research the current physical stats of professional athletes and compare them to those of the past and you will see very little difference in the numbers put up. The only difference is that prior to the social programs enacted during the 90's there were more African Americans putting up those numbers. Now there is much more diversity but the numbers haven't changed. (Athletes are bigger but that is because of early age supplement and PED use). Prior to the 90's the inner city life was much more prevalent in minorities and those that had the drive and desire to be professional athletes combined with the discipline that comes with escaping poverty did so.
I never once called you or anyone else racist. Maybe you just feel guilty.
