    its biological - black people have evolved naturally to have more red muscle (for explosive sports) such as sprinting and strength exercises. white people tend to have less red muscle and more white (endurance) so are weaker at such sports, although there are exceptions.

    everyone has a mix of red and white muscle, the ratio determines what you are good at naturally.

    Blacks are the superior and more advanced race - fact. Evolution says so. I agree with the poster who said that the black race as whole - their skeletons are more fitter and athletic than whites.
    How racist of you :rolleyes:

    i think like someone mentioned earlier its about where they come from, and the blacks have had ancesisters who came from the mountainous regions where oxgen levels are low therefore the chest and lungs grow bigger.

    they have been lucky to get oppertunity in sports from other rich developed countrys, cos i have seen huge big monsters in afganistan and north pakistan region who also live in mountainous regions especially the pathans. unfortunatly these people are ignored, even in pakistan. its just the region where you come from which determines how strong you are.

    its the main reason why they are usally good at sports which require power and strength thats why nearly all the time the heavyweight champion in boxing is always a black.

    They're not better than white people at sports but they're more successful in track athletics because they have higher endurance... which they've inherited from past generations who endured more 'hardship' compared to their western counterparts.
    So, they are not better, yet they are better as they are more successful...make your mind up.

    Anything which means people have a natural advantage and can be naturally more successful means they are better does it not? In sport if people can perform better (without artificial help) it means they are better at the sport.

    This isn't the case, otherwise sherpas would be the worlds top sprinters, and they quite clearly are not.

    But, in comparison, powerlifting is a white dominated sport.

    Some groups living at high altitude have evolved faster breathing rather than higher capacity, which doesn't give such an advantage in a race. I'm not sure which evolutionary path the Sherpas have followed though.

    they have thicker skin, so they can endure a little bit more pain, which makes them good at boxing.

    I would have thought they would be good at winter sports like skiing.

    I hope this is sarcasm

    Anyway, Nike tried this - they got Kenyan long distance runners and trained them as cross country skiers, one of them failed to qualify, the others performed abysmally.
