Default Author Tackles Controversial Aspect of Sports, Genes and Ethnicity

See video in link above. Interesting subject matter tackled here....of course the liberals on this board speak to ZERO differences in terms of IQ between the races but what will their perspective be when it comes to athletics and the disproportionate representation of African America's on say our Favorite football team?

Default but go ahead and keep believing the politically correct narrative you sheeple...

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/13/sc...cess.html?_r=0


"The narrative follows Mr. Epstein’s search for the roots of elite sport performance as he encounters characters and stories so engrossing that readers may not realize they’re receiving an advanced course in genetics, physiology and sports medicine.

To illustrate that learned perceptual skills can trump innate reaction speed, for example, he revisits the slugger Albert Pujols’s humiliating strikeout against Jennie Finch, an Olympic softball pitcher who throws underhand. While investigating a theory that practice is what distinguishes professional athletes from amateurs, Mr. Epstein meets a golf novice, Dan McLaughlin, who quit his job to test whether 10,000 hours of practice — called the “magic number for true expertise” in Malcolm Gladwell’s best-seller “Outliers” — could transform him into a P.G.A.-worthy professional. (He started in 2010 and is less than halfway to 10,000 hours; by June, his handicap was 5.5.) Whether (and how fast) chumps can become champs depends on their baseline ability and how rapidly they improve — factors highly influenced by genetics. After months of identical training, some exercisers make almost no fitness gains, while others increase their aerobic capacities by 50 percent or more. Scientists have identified more than 20 gene variants that can separate high responders from low ones."

We have quite a tradition of Ethoipian marathoners that would point to something. I'm old enough to remember when Jimmy the Greek lost his job for making the comment about "black thighs" and basically how blacks are bred to be physically superior athletes. I don't think he ever worked on national television again after that and until then he was on frequently on weekend sports programming.

But of course, Jimmy is cracker and that many blacks have come along since his day and said the same thing, it's not a big deal.

I would only hope that if you find the idea of racial differences such as this offensive, then at the least be decent enough to apply the standard to everyone and not only to white people who open their mouths. In doing so it makes it instead of a supposed stand against racism, it's racism itself.

Actually, we like to discuss a variety of topics here. You seem interested in only one. It's getting old. And highly questionable. Do you know what spam is?

If one-track posting were really an issue here, then please do something about the endless posts that screech "dat races!" from liberals in one form or another.

The **** is REALLY getting old.

Define "race", txtebow.

Define what "black" in terms of "race" means.
