I assume you are talking to Saxonworld, who claims he believes in equality but felt that he had to ask if blacks are superior to whites, and Dopo who thinks that the black ability to run really fast makes them superior.

Of course you are, and I am equally disgusted by it.

You should probably ask Saxonworld and Dopo. I am just hear to challenge their racsim. And since you are so concerned about racism, I am glad that you are here to aid me.

Then we are on the same page. I agree. Dopo is also a racist.

What is unique about this is the US college system which invests much in athletics, and the proximity of Jamaica to the USA, which allowed many Jamaicans to benefit from the superior training.

In fact looking at the Olympics swimming is the only major sport where white American males dominate.

The issue is that white American males no longer see upward mobility in sports as they have many other options. So the drive, the intense commitment and discipline required in these sports is directed to other pursuits.

THAT is more important in determining which group does best at which sport. In fact there is no evidence that the average black American runs faster than the average white American.

Yep way to much diversity WITHIN any race to make any sort of Black>White or White>Black or Asian>White proclamation.....Which Blacks and which Whites and which Asians are you talking about?? There is great diversity within every race....

For example, Asians in America are typically stereotyped as weak and unathletic since most people in America associate Asians with East Asians who tend to be nerdy and not athletic.....But in Russia?? Asians are not stereotyped at all in this way since most Asians (that Russians are familiar with) are the "Genghis Khan" Asians from Mongolia/Tibet/Kyrgyzstan/Kazakhstan and they are not nerdy at all....Many of the best wrestlers/boxers on the Russian National team are Mongoloids (from those above countries) and they do well in Russian sports and are tough/masculine in general....If you were to ask someone in America about Asian Male athletic prowess you would probably get a very different answer than if you went to Moscow and asked someone there....

I also think that isolated populations can evolve/change appearance very quickly from their
"Mother Population"....I don't think it takes thousands of years for humans to change in appearance due to geographic isolation/environment/diet/culture....

African Americans are only about 300-500 years (on average) removed from West Africans and White Americans are only about 100-500 years (on average) from Europeans yet I can see lots of differences between them....The average person from Nigeria/Ghana/Cameron doesn't look that much alike to the average African American and the same is true for White Americans compared to Germans/British/Irish etc populations in Europe....There are clear differences between them despite the fact that those are the "Mother Populations"....

My favorite race in Africa is the Dakar rally. I am glad there is finally a thread on the Africa sub-forum about endurance racing.

Nature has proven both to be effective. With such a subjective bar to measure, your question becomes meaningless.

The concept of 'Race' is outdated and has been so for a significant amount of time.
Race is much more than skin coloration. Race (ones genes) determines facial structure (everything from skull shape to nasal structure), hair texture, muscle fiber distribution (hence some groups run faster on average while some have greater upper body strength than others) and what diseases a person is susceptible to on a cellular level (Tay Sachs, sickle cell, certain cancers, etc.).

Skin color alone though is hugely a big factor in nature. The color of animals in nature is a warning sign (think the coral snake) and also how they can camouflage and survive. It's not a trivial thing.

Absolutely one is superior to the other depending on who you ask. All of this comes down to personal opinion. I like Coke and think it is much superior to Pepsi. I don't see how race is any different. Nothing can be equal if it is different. That is immeasurable. Is Coke equal to Sprite or vanilla to chocholate or McDonald's to Burger King. To some they might find them equal but to others they have preference. Obviously if I'm Asian I am naturally going to think Asians are superior. It's a matter of biological survival. If one thinks his group is better it makes no difference to me. I have my own preference.

When one nucleotide out of 2 billion is out of place can mean the difference between a healthy child and one with some terrible deformity, that .5% difference is huge. Think about humans vs monkeys who are only 1.5 to 3% apart genetically. Percentage wise that is not a big difference but in context it is.

If there was no biological distinction between the races everyone would look generally the same and there wouldn't be different facial structure, skull shape, hair texture, muscle fiber distribution and differences in susceptibility to certain diseases.

The real racists are the ones who deny race and are not honest about reality. There is nothing wrong with there being different races.

People of different skin colors are of different biology. Different skin color is just a small part of the genetic difference between races where ch includes hair texture, skull shape, facial structure, muscle fiber distribution and susceptibility to certain diseases on a cellular level.

We're all human beings can compare to they are all dogs. A Maltese is a dog as is a Dalmatian. They have the same basic parts and the cells look identical pretty much but they look different and act different. Same with humans. There are different races and diversity should be acknowledged not hidden like when people pret nyd there is no such thing as race.
