Quote:You say economic...I say cultural and environmental which is not only limited to economic.
Quote:It is perfectly plausible for cultural and environmental issues to contribute as well.
Quote:I don't believe this 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?
Quote:What don't you believe for a minute? That African Americans make up more than 65% of players in those sports. That's a fact. Rather than changing the subject could you please provide your theory on that fact? What cultural and environmental factors contribute to their faster 40 times?
Quote:As for the white QB statistics I certainly think there is an inherent bias that many in the sport possess. A prejudice we are certainly seeing change with the HS and College ranks filled with Black QBs and a big uptick in the number of Black NFL QBs. Yet, are we seeing a similar change with more diverse representation in positions like WR or RB? No, not at all. Why? Because of the speed and strength advantage.
Your cherry picking your sports. Grabbing 1 or 2 sports and pronouncing your statistics of proof of one groups physically superiority over another's is a typical missuse of statistical data.
And what percentage of HS and College black QB's are moved into different positions when they go to (if they go to) the pros compared to other insert skin color of your choice players?
