I was watching the Olympics this evening. I know you’re all shocked! Anyway the BBC did a short documentary on whether White men or Black men are naturally faster. The jury was basically out even though 81 out of 82 athletes to break 10:00 sec have been black.
An interesting point that was touched upon & one I’d never thought of before was the effect of the slave trade. Of the thousands or millions (I’m not sure on the numbers) of slaves, who were forced to make the horrific journey from Africa to America, many died. This affect on genealogy was that only the strongest survived. Leading to the descendants of those who survived to be a product of a strengthened gene pool. Some would use this as an example of Darwin’s survival of the fittest, but I don’t want this to be any kind of attack on religion.
Anyway I just want to share this as I found it really interesting & have wondered a lot to myself why the best sprinters do appear to be black.
