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.
statistics isn't about proof, it's about probability and inference.

You guys are slippery fucks, but I'll pin you down yet.
well i'd like to hear your explanation for the disproportionate amount of blacks in professional sports...
unless you are simply rejecting my explanation without providing one of your own, which would be very atheisty of you
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.
