    How come that`s mostly white guys?
    Only the odd sprinkling of an asian?

    Is it like a `whites can`t jump` / `blacks can`t skate` thing?

    @Gerry1of1
    2:20 is a black guy

    even though there arent a whole lot of black skaters, it seems like the ones thats do skate can jump higher and have better balance than a lot of white skaters, further proving that black people are the best at every sport.

    @bloodballed: Of course they`re faster and can jump higher. They come from a land where they run from poo like lions, and then they came to america, dominated the slums, and began running again, this time from bullets and each other. So, yea, genetics allow some black ppl the edge. But not in swimming or hockey.

    bLooBaLLd419 - "proving that black people are the best at every sport"

    That`s racist.
    Racism isn`t bad - biggotry is. Racism is just accepting the inherant differances in the races.
    I mean, we`ve all see white people dance, right.
    Pathetic.

    I`m just sayin. Or rather, bLooBaLLd419 is just sayin...

    I thought I would check out the price for a phantom cam. I think these people have gone insane. To buy a phantom cam outright ranges from 50K to 150K depending on the package. To rent a phantom for ONE day is $2500.00 hardly worth the price unless your making godly amounts of cash using it. I am sure there are comparable cams for a fraction of the price.

    Gerry1of1 for gods sake you put forward the damn "Racism isn`t bad" argument ages go with a f*cked up example of "races inherent different things etc etc" and Baal proved you wrong simply by looking up a dictionary. If your not going to listen to anyone disprove your bulls*it arguments, don`t start preaching them to other people.

    There are certain, albeit small, physical differences between all races. The important thing to recognize is that we all have the same capacity for thought.

    I voiced an opinion, just as BAAL voiced an opinion. Just as YOU can voice your opinion, From your statement I take it your opinion is `No one is allowed anopnion that differs from yours`. I`ll keep that in mind for future referance.

    Meanwhile, please explain the lack of racial diversity in the NFL. Are they racist for refusing to allow asians on the teams? Or is it one or two races are just better at that? Go ahead, "disprove my bullpoo", as you say.

    I hate to say it, but I`m gonna have to kind of agree with you here, Gerry. A little bit. I don`t agree with your definition of racism. And I think you`re oversimplifying when you seem to be implying that genetics is the ONLY factor contributing to the percentage of African Americans in the NFL, NBA, etc- there are definitely socio-political forces at work there (as there are in the lack of black people playing pro tennis an hockey). HOWEVER, it may be taboo to discuss this, as evidenced by everyone`s furious reaction to Gerry, but one cannot ignore the fact that African Americans, as a people, have been put through the genetic ringer far more recently and thoroughly than any other people in the US. Only the strongest among those brought here from Africa survived the grueling journey- and once they were here, their owners bred them like animals- artificially selecting size and strength. This is a sad but undeniable truth.

    kangoala "Racism is a form of Biggotry"

    Racism and Biggotry are differant, but often one is misused as the other.

    Bigoty is judging without evidence. The key point is "without proof" as in a prejudice.

    RACISM is the belief that there are inherant differances in the races. I did not say one race was better so don`t read that into it like some drama queens here do. I simply acknowledge all of our differances.

    Isn`t THAT what the liberal buzzwards "diversity" and "tolerance" are about?

    I do not agree with your definition of racism- racism is NOT simply recognizing the differences between races. Racism is falsely attributing certain characteristics of races to their genetics, ignoring the historical forces at work that have shaped our society- such as when people that black people are inherently criminal because they represent a disproportionately large percentage of the prison population, or when people claim that they are of naturally inferior intelligence because they succeed less frequently in school. These claims are racist, since there are sufficient sociological explanations for how things came to be that way, without needing to point to genetics as a factor.

    @sbeelz

    I never said race is the ONLY factor. But to even say it is a factor gets Lebretards all stirred up. We ARE differant but the politically-correct cowards have us too scared to say it publicly lest we be labeled by them as "mean people".

    For the record, while I do think there are differances in the races I have never said one race was better than another.

    None of that matters, there still aren`t any asians on the NFL.

    Then Gerry, you need to be more clear. By saying "Or is it one or two races are just better at that?" you imply that genetics is behind this difference. It has nothing to do with being better, necessarily, at least not as much as it has to do with what people of certain racial backgrounds CHOOSE to do.

    ...And what people choose to do is largely shaped by the opportunities available to them. There are not, nor have there been historically, an overwhelming number of tennis clubs accepting or recruiting black families.

    I think gerry has a point, sbeelz. Some races are simply better at some things than other races, thus some races are worse at some things than other races. maybe it`s genetics, or maybe it`s just the unfair allocation of talents and skills of the generation. Trends say it`s genetics.

    @TDK- trends say it`s genetics. OK, cite some peer-reviewed studies. Powerful social, political, and economic forces have shaped races around the globe- and focusing so heavily on genes ignores that fact. White people have a huge stake in ignoring the fact that 400 years of slavery and oppression have had a huge impact on black culture in the US. But I think the more important point is- this video is sick, and gerry just brought race into it to troll everyone.

    @sbeelz "powerful social, political, and economic forces have shaped races...." The "800 pound gorilla" is eugenics. The subtle kind performed by slave owners to "breed" physically adept field workers, etc. The other side of the american slave eugenics coin is even more vile. Breeding intelligence into future field workers isn`t necessary. Can`t wait to get banned for this one, even though I don`t and didn`t support eugenics.

    It`s a well filmed skate video. Why troll racism into it? Why not bring the Tea Party into it as well. Or U.F.O`s?

    Although considering the forum (the internets) trolling, pulling false conclusions from the premises and just stating a pointless opinionin pretty much what is expected and appropriate.

    I Googled this whole "slave owners breeding program" thing and all I came up with was that masters encouraged and rewarded female slaves to have as many babies as possible. Nothing about any organized effort to "improve the breed".

    Not saying it didn`t happen, just saying I can`t find anything to back up the idea. I need historical fact on this before I buy into it.

    Blacks are better at some things and whites are good at being succesful...

    Well, we whites seem pretty good at steeling.
    We stole land from many people. From indians we did it a couple of times, then stole the mineral rights.
    If a black man steels he goes to jail but if a white man steels he gets a bonus from his corporation.
    We got away with steeling black peoples civil liberties for centuries.

    So, I hate to sound racist, but it does seem white people are better at this than others.
