Is it racist to say "Blacks are better at sports"?
Better in general perhaps, possibly more prevalent in some sports as well, however in specifics I think there are quality athletes of all races and creeds.
Based on what I see on fields & courts, it would appear to be an accurate observation of present reality to a large part. I don't follow sports, so my observations are pretty limited.
It's not racist if it's true.
No, just incorrect. It's a wild overgeneralization.
Racist? No. Incorrect? Yes. Not all Of any race is better then any other and no one race plays every sport. Each race has people who are not athletic by any means and then they have the people at the top of their chosen sport and so many in between.
Nobody who says that is implying that ALL blacks are better at sports. It's a statistic.
Technically yes but it is a true stereotype. The NFL and NBA pick people by their athletic abilities and blacks obviously dominate in that category.
Blacks make up around 10% of the us population but 90% of the NFL and the NBA. It's not racist if its true.
Not if they are. And they are in lots of sports, and should be proud of that fact. Being non athletic, I find it admirable.
Borderline, maybe. But if you're using it as a basic rule, not holding someone to it or "judging" them one way or another, it's often accurate.
