This article is total bullsh*t.
If I put white people in the same economic prison so many blacks in America are in and I only open that door for sports and entertainment. You will start to see them dominate those areas too.
Pretty much. But, that is still a condition brought on by slavery.

Johnson talking out of his a.ss. where's the scientific evidence? How about that blacks maybe simply work harder in these sports...

Multiple billions of dollars to do this kind of specific genetic research...
Who wants to throw the first millie...
I'm sure the gov't agenda lookin like
1) Healthcare
2) Economy
3) Find out if slavery benefited blacks in the long run and settle a Racial Arguement on BX




And I could what MJs sayin being true, but honestly, who gives a @$#@.

The condition is brought on by white supremacy. Which is why so many blacks on this site break their neck to defend white people at any cost.

Where are all the great athletes from Haiti , or Belize or Trinidad Tobago. They had slavery also.

Nobodys perfect blacks are athletic but most have the brain of a peanut
Whites are smart but most have the athleticism of a snail

Look at asians they have not one ounce of athleticism but are rocket scientists

As always there are a few of every one of us that breaks the trend but pretty much real talk

Human genetics are exponentially more complicated than farm animals. You need to go back to biology class. Start with Mendelian inheritance and work your way up. You cannot produce a constant genetic change in humans 600 years. If that was the case , all the blacks in the northern areas of America would have turned white by now. They have been there about 500-600 years.

I didn't read through all the responses but blacks genetically are more physically gifted than others. Look up myostatin. It's what basically keeps people from gaining too much muscle mass. Black people have less of this gene than others.

A good friend of mine is a Vietnam war vet and was explaining to me why the best athletes in NBA/NFL are increasingly of color. It's well known that during the slave days, slaveowners only desired/bred the strongest and biggest slaves. Blacks during this time were bred to be big and strong meanwhile whites (at the time) were still fu*king their cousins.

I'm not trying to be racial but this also does give a bit of an insight as to why all the serial k!llers and such have been historically white. Slaves with mental illnesses weren't used to father more slaves like that. Meanwhile, like I said, plantation owners were fu*king their sisters and cousins.


Edit : For example. Here is a dog with myostatin inhibited.

I've heard it quite some times, that it could very well have been the 'selective breeding'.. But when white people said this, everyone flipped the fu*k out and called them racist.. Because black people felt as if that was a claim to their abilities...
Now that a black person says the exact same thing everybody is ears up and agrees... lol

I think it might be true to some extent.. I'll wait until we find that 3rd space to talk about racial differences like non-idiots though

Slaveowners also r*ped black women, so what happen to those offspring. They were still slaves. Why do you think there are so many light skinned blacks running around during slavery and even now.

NFL /NBA players are a few thousand out of a population of 20 million black men. They do not represent the average black man walking down the street.

There probably isn't ONE gene responsible for athleticism, but you select the most fit slaves and bring them over here, AND then use selective breeding techniques then obviously you could end up with something we see today. It can't be a coincidence that blacks tend to dominate/excel at parts of sports that require the most athleticism

Actually, myostatin is incredibly important when it comes to sports.

Most African body types have physical advantages when it comes to most sports. It's the way the human build reflected the climate early on. Look at the East African body type's natural advantage when it comes to long distance running. East Africans have a higher percentage of slow-twitch fibers in their muscles, a slighter body, longer legs, and larger lung capacities which help in endurance and long-distance running. This is not to say ppl with other body types can't dominate, it's just something that relies on health and effort.

African Americans are also very mixed from Canada to South America. We have a diversity of ethnic genetics(which means you could carry genetic advantages of various peoples). You can even have a study done that shows how your genes affect your strength or weakness against certain diseases. Couple this with the fact that some families were bred by genetic strength while becoming accustomed to physically and socially rigorous lifestyles and you can see why things might be the way they are.

Even today, a lot of Americans consider taking up a sport a right of passage. Within that, a lot of African Americans pursue athletics since they can relate to others like them who have excelled in life through sports. A good portion of us are still looking for ways up the socio-economic ladder. Then, when you look at what's in a lot of the sh*t that we eat in today's world, you can't help but wonder how much of this factors into being a dominant athlete.

Okay...?


Nobody said major league sports players represent the average black men...

Yes environmental change will reduce you melanin. Africans migrated to Europe, got stuck and lost their melanin. This took thousands of years, not a few hundred. If what you are saying is true, all those West Indians living in T dot would be white by now.

Do what King Hover recommended and grow and develop. The devil is a liar.

Yes, but there are probably a constellation of gene involved with one's athleticism as opposed to one gene
