I said that the reason that African Americans were more athletic was because of slavery.

Think about if you were white back in the 1600's. Wouldn't you want to take only the strongest and most efficient slaves back home from Africa to America?

If two strong people mate their kid will be strong. That's why if you go to Africa , the people there are relatively weak compared to Europe and American Blacks.

Anyway this black kid said I was being racist But I just think its a good theory.

The reason the people in Africa are weak are becasue of malnutrition.

And thats not even true, if you watch athletics, the Nigerian team is always pwning.

Umm...no. The parents would more likely train them to be strong. But, it definitely isn't hereditary.

Actually no, it is a good theory and I'm pretty sure it's true.

It's called artificial selection - the white people would choose the largest and most fit slaves to breed with each other, thus created larger offspring. Just because it is about slavery doesn't make it wrong.

I disagree people say fatness and Height are definitely hereditary. So why not athletic aspects.

Black people have different muscle structure, this is due to thousands of years of evolution and not anything which occured in the relatively short period of time that blacks were slaves in the United States.

I don't see how the theory is racist. You didn't say any race is superior to another. As for the accuracy...I don't know.
#19
African people who have lived there their entire lives are winning races and stuff all the time, so they are naturally athletic I guess (plus a lot of hard work).

I did hear that slaves in America were picked because of their strength etc. , and if two slaves had a child, the child would be strong aswell. But there was no need to tell him he's only athletic because of that, you dont know his entire family history, so it was a bit racist.

the slave owners would'nt want the strongest slaves all the time.

slaves that worked in houses and as servents wouldnt need to be stong.

it would take to much time and money to search for just the strong africans, it would be easiler and more profitable just to get loads on a ship at once and do the "sorting" when they were in america

I don't see why pure scientific facts could be considered racist at all...

And to be clear: I totally disagree with the slavery 'theory', it is nothing more than their genetical constitution that makes them faster runners.

Fatness isn't hereditary. Metabolic rates are.

What so because it refers to slavery it is racist? FFS this is political correctness gone mad....

The only way this is racist is because it assume the black people's descendants were slaves. Though if he is talking about blacks in the USA then he may be right, after all you Americans seem to insist on calling them "African Americans" (which i find racist as it assumes all black people are from africa).

height is partly hereditary and partly concerned with ur environment and ur diet. now fit parents could breed fit babies, cos lung capacity is hereditary, but the strength issue is totally wrong.

It's not. There's a reason athlete's train their entire lives for the Olympics, and two massive parents is no guarantee of strong kids because you have things like Recessive Genes and the Environment you grow up in.

I hate to repeat myself, but a stupid theory.

I dont know about slavery, but i am guessing the owners didn't force them to have sex.
How is that possible. They were not animals.

Maybe the reason that Europeans and Americans are generally stronger is because we have an acceptable amount of food and healthy living conditions. We have agriculture, whereas hunting/gathering is more common in Africa, giving Europeans and Americans a steadier nutritional income. This is probably what leads to Africans being weaker and smaller. I disagree that if two strong people mate, their child will be strong. The parents may force their kid to work out more than weak parents, which could lead to the strong parents having stronger kids than weak parents, but strength isn't hereditary, I'm pretty sure. That's all I have to say...

I call them "black." And, some of them TELL us to call them "African American." I still call them black because I'm "white," not "European American."

If you have to ask an online community such as Ultimate-Guitar whether or not your comment was racist, chances are, it was.

And yes, if you told that to some 'gangstas', they would probably knife your stupid ass.
