Sorry but this is The worst thread i've ever seen on this forum.
The colour of someones skin has absolutely nothing to do with how good their athletic ability is.
I know what, we dont want clever people taking over this forum, so lets round up everybody who wears glasses on here and kill them, that way we wont be retarded.... This is the same comment as saying blacks are more athletic.
there is a certain word in MMA, this word is "mixed" and this enables people from any walk of life with any form of fighting skill to enter the arena and showcase their skill.
I remember several years ago a friend of mine who is half brazilian half white who from a certain distance does look black had a problem whereby someone was bbeing racist towards him, his coach expected him to perform better than others in the boxing classes as in the coaches words: its in his blood to be fitter and stronger... and would let myself and other white kids relax, with my friend being pushed and pushed.... he quit the class after several months due to over exhaustion.
the coach was sacked.
Yes many captured slaves who happened to of been black were purposely bred for stregnth, with weaker slaves being killed, and taller more athletic slaves being forced to breed.
But there have been millions of slaves who havent been black who were purposely bred as well.
the reason you'll find many blacks in more popular sports my friend is because of social and demographic factures that disable opportunities for a certain group of people to benefit from, including higher class education... The poor standard of education in demographic regions were lower class people live disables them from progressing academically and with little or less opportunity forces them into more athletic forms of education, that enables them to pursue a certain sport more thoroughly and become higher skilled in this sport, gaining college scholarships and a greater chance of pursueing their sport into a fulltime career.
Many people in other social and demographic areas have grater access to quality education, information technology, and will more likely pursue a career in academics, and be far greater academically than say a top superstar in a sport who is far superior practically.
Where you live, who raises you, and what you learn shapes who you become... your Race does not and i repeat your race does not shape who you become.
MMA celebrates differences, if you dont like celebrating differences then go find another sport... maybe horseriding whilst wearing white overalls.
