Is there some phantom post by AoG showing some sort of statistical analysis proving that the average black-skinned person is more athletic than the average white-skinned person? If there is, can someone please show it to me.

I did posit one theory if you remember, I just didn't form it entirely so here goes:

Black skinned people are on average lower income than white skinned.
Lower income individuals are physically and perhaps psychologically "tougher" than higher income individuals due to harder living conditions.
Physically/mentally tough individuals will perform better at professional sports.
Therefore, there are more black skinned professional athletes than white skinned.

At least it's something and seems to ring with truth. It has obvious holes but no facet can be thrown out as undeniably false. The point is that the color of skin is purely situational. Its also assumed that this example applies to the US. I think I am going to actually rest my case on this one guys, it's becoming a dead subject.

oh, so NOW you understand my argument


You have to admit TGD, he's got his right to his opinion.


That blacks have bigger muscles than whites? On average?


No that he chooses to believe that the fact that the NBA is composed of 76% black people is enough evidence that the average black person is more athletic than the average white person. It has all other kinds of implications but it's not our problem. :D



Hockey?

Yeah well that one we can squash pretty quickly. Considering the cost difference between hockey gear and say.. a cheap basketball, one is exceedingly easier for a poor kid to get started on.

Tbh, I am not all that familiar with the statistics regarding soccer, or much other sports for that matter. So far I am just trusting the stats given on here as accurate. Pick a country regarding soccer and the proportions and we can go from there?
