what gene do white people have for swimming?
maybe black people are just predisposed to not being as adept to moving in the water as they are on land

Nah, I think Larry Bird said this, and people seemed to agree w/it.





Not at all. But some folks have said that Blacks score lower than others because of socio-economic status. However, there was a composite done, in which it showed that even Blacks w/higher socio-economic statuses still scored lower than the other races of equal or higher status. Me, personally, I think that's b/c the tests are more inclined to be taken a certain way, but I just wanted to get other folks opinion on this too.
A lot of standardized test are culturally biased. Multiple examples and articles on this case which is possibly why blacks and minorities have lower test scores (excluding asians)

^^^ That.

Unless he has evidence to back up this mystery gene lol, I'd just chalk it up to they're more established already in most sports and they probably work harder to keep it that way.

There's no definitive way to prove someone "works harder"

Sure there is. Look at guys like Ray Lewis as compared to someone who takes a lot of time off to relax in the offseason.

I'm just saying until I see scientific proof that there's some gene that makes a person of a certain skin color a better athlete , it's bullsh*t.

I'm only playing Devil's Advocate so don't get too mad.

But if it's said that athletic ability is through breeding, then what about intelligence? Test scores amongst Blacks in this country are lower than their comparative races, even when in their respective socio-economic status is taken into effect.

Again, just being the Devil's Advocate.
Did they check the trailer parks? And @ you with your bullsh*t "just being Devil's Advocate" line...of course "your kind" would alter the subject when there's no alternative, logical response.

Explain why many great athletes showed flashes of their athleticism in pee-wee leagues then. Is it because their fathers or mothers pushed them into the gym at age 7? Or did it not come from natural ability? ...I'll wait.

How many kids in general flash ability at a young age? Prob way more than actually make it.

Show me how you can prove it's because they're black and not just a combination of talent, good genes (meaning their parents, not color), and work ethic?

I'll wait.
