Do you think blacks are athletically superior to whites?

Again, obviously not true. But I've noticed the only vote from Tennessee in both of these polls are "yes", so that speaks volumes about your ignorance.

Obviously not true? There is no dispute that blacks have an edge against whites when it comes to most athletic competitions. If you believe that there is no distinction between races then what reason would you give for the fact that the nfl consists of 67 percent black players despite the fact that they only constitute about 15 percent of the total population of the country. The premise that there is no difference between is unfounded

Laserbeam, I usually agree with you, but on this one I believe blacks are better than whites on average when it come to athleticism. Maybe not in all categories, but most, first look at the NBA and football, predominantly black especially in skill positions. Next look at track and field world record holders, 90% black. You think this is a coincidence?

I noticed you conveniently left out the other 2 major sports leagues, the NHL (arguably the most physically demanding sport) and the MLB. We're just going to have to agree to disagree here.

I did leave those out but nhl doesn't have many for cultural reasons and mlb while it does take athleticism and great hand eye coordination there are very fat players that swing at balls and sit at first base. Any rebuild for track and field African American dominance on pretty much all levels. Jump higher, run faster at all distances.

That same "cultural" argument could be used to support my argument in regards to the NBA.

Track and field? There are no cultural barriers and many white people play basketball. Track and field is pure physical abilities, tangible skills aren't required like in other sports
