      The belief or thought that one race is smarter or stronger or faster or whatever...is part of why things like racism exist. One group feels superior than another, and with very little true evidence.

    The example being discussed isn't proposing that one race is stronger or smarter than another. That's the point. If people with African DNA were inherently stronger then we would see enormous representation by them in competitive sports around the world. But we do not.

    However, there is a specific segment of that population who underwent circumstances designed to enhance strength and the statistical evidence is hardly anecdotal or misconstruing data.

    I'd be curious to know how you explain the massively disproportional numbers in Basketball and Football. Yes, we see other sports skew towards other races (hockey, tennis, etc.) but I think there are reasonable economic factors contributing in those situations.

You say economic...I say cultural and environmental which is not only limited to economic.

I don't believe the following for a moment but to use the same argument one could argue the White Quarterbacks in football are far more successful than their Black counterparts. The QB position is considered the brains of the offense of unit...does that mean White football players ARE smarter by that specific use of statistics?
