Black people are naturally better at developing their fast twitch muscles.It's not a gene.Same reason why black chicks are naturally "thick" in the thigh and a.ss.That's why we're dominant in track.

The reason black people are less likely to become dominant in swimming isn't because black people can't swim,it's because our bones are more dense compared to whites.Nothing to do with slavery and breeding.

Can't we all just get along?
Don't bring "thick" into this That's the most perverted and misused word in the last decade.

Bone density is something that you can change, btw.

If an Asian guy had the same "work ethic" as Michael Jordan or Usain Bolt, do you think he'd dominate basketball or running like them? Hell fu*king no, it's largely genetics.



Fast Twitch muscle fibers are genetically determined.
What did I just say about running?

And no sh*t he's not going to be dunking anytime soon but you can't tell me he couldn't be a Mugsy.

Btw, Yao was pretty goddamn good until his injuries piled up wasn't he?

Not a gene mutation that resulted from slavery..should've been clearer.

This is a taboo topic but he is partially right.. I hate to say it like this but "breeding" happened during slavery. A slave master would take his most physically strong female slave and his most physically strong male slave and "mate" them like animals in hopes to get superior slave children.. Also the slaves that made it here from Africa were also the strongest out of the bunch to survive that trek.. It's taboo in the sense that it dehumanizes Black people and make us almost animalistic in the way our ancestors were treated, but its history and it happened ..

Also Jimmy the Greek made the same argument back in the day and was fired for it...

When it comes to running, to an extent you're right in that you can't teach speed.

But having that much more speed than someone else isn't generally a huge factor when it comes to the NFL, NBA, etc.

It's not all that often that the fastest guy there is automatically the best player there.
very true...there are also other things involved with those sportts (skill...especially in basketball) that are going to factor into someone's success. One's quickness, ability to change direction, vertical leap. Things you can improve? sure...but someone people are going to have genetic avantages in those departments that all the training in the world wont make up for.

All the athleticism in the world won't matter if you lack skill or the intelligence to understand the sport. this agree's with what you were saying and the point I was trying to make to dude asking why all supposedly athletically superior blacks arent in pro sports lol

Dr Herb Elliott, doctor to the Jamaican Olympic team, added: ‘Only the most aggressive and fiercest slaves ended up in Jamaica.’
Very dangerous to say, because then it opens up debate as to why this may be the reason Jamaica has the highest murder rate in the world as well as many other black communities across North America.

Blacks naturally suck at swimming bro, and it's not cause you "don't have swimming pools"
it's because of genetic factors (bone density, relative torso length, etc.)

There will never be a black Phelps just like there will never be a white Jordan

Even the best black swimmer fu*king sucks

bullsh*t! what about the brotha from the 2008 Olympics and what about the brotha from this yr Olympic trials U sleeping son!

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.
take 2 people...man and woman(6 month process before s3x)

1)they have s3x while addicted to crack,living in a impoverished environment, and eating fast food

2)they have s3x while consuming cell salts, in the jungles/around plant life, eating superfoods

will you get 2 different babies?



ps-yes it took thousands of years, now hundreds...soon within this progressive structure, how long will it take? people are going to f!ght back!!! and yes..the manifestation of evil forces is a lie...but learn truth from the lie.

Lol it may be misused an perverted but there is a reason why women of African descent are naturally curvier below the waist when being compared to White/Asian women.I can't really say the same thing about males of different races because I'm not looking at men below the waist but I think it's safe to a.ssume that the same phenomenon exists for males also.The reason we have k!nky hair is because it was too our ancestors advantage to have hair that allows for quick heat dissipation.Whites had no need for k!nky so that genetic mutation never took place on their end.Same thing can be applied to African American development of fast twitch muscles in our legs.Africans are hunter/gatherers,we relied on our ability to run/jump/move quickly for survival.Whites,not so much.


Bone density can be changed in blacks just like fast twitch muscles can be further developed by whites/asians,but will it make a big enough difference for blacks to become dominant in swimming on a wide scale?No.Just like whites/asians will never be able to dominate the 100meter sprint.

I don't see how slavery fits in this discussion
