    "But why would you even consider drawing attention to his skin colour or race? The fact you did implies you are racist."

    I`ll tell you why.

    If I tell you I have a video of 10 white guys having a dunk contest and a video of 10 black guys having a dunk contest, which one would you like to watch?

    I`ve been watching (mostly white) gymnasts for years and I have never seen anything even close to this amazingly athletic.

    Noticing that black people are more athletic makes me a racist?

    HolyGod all signs point to you being a racist. Not only was your use of skin color in the title unnecessary, but the "Black Guy Flips Out" all together was a cheap play on words. It was meant to goad viewers to assume this was going to be a violent display by an African American male. This would be your cue to begin your denials, protestations, and weak excuses that eventually prove my point.

    If anything, the title and article demonstrate how this man has overcome the stereotypes against him. Perhaps we should ask why WE envisioned a black man behaving violently in the first place?

    then you guys need to learn to read more. i read the title, then the subtitle. it really isn`t hard. pointing out that he is black in the title doesn`t make him a racist. he just added an extra word. get over yourselves.

    collegebound: It`s more than the addition of the word "Black", the normal context of the term "Flip out" means go crazy or get mad.

    A title of "Amazing street gymnast" would`ve been better and less deceptive.

    Jesus F.UCKING Christ.

    That was the title of the blog I found it on:

    "Ozell Williams Flips Out"

    I just changed "Ozell Williams" to "Black Guy" since nobody would know who Ozell Williams was.

    Are we not nitpicking a LITTLE much?

    F.uck me. There is a post right below mine with the title: "Follow Me!" Go complain on his post that "Dog follows skier and slips and falls" would have "been better and less deceptive".

They were probably getting excited that they can comment that yet another black guy was beating someone up or breaking poo and got disappointed when they saw the actual content. That cause anger that immediately needed to be channeled somewhere and naturally, that was your fault for being misleading.

    "Noticing that black people are more athletic makes me a racist?"

    Noticing that black people are black is not rascist, neither is it to notice that someone is a blond or a brunette, if however you start using generalistion attributed to a shared trait then rasicms/ discrimination comes into play.
    saying women are not as smart as men, (whilst completly true) is sexsist.
    saying people are bumb becuase they are blond is discrimination.
    saying people are athletic becuase they are black is rascist.

    so no your title wasn`t rascist. but pointing out that black people are more athletic is. Unless of course you happen to have absolute statistical proof that every black person is more athletic then any white person.

    i hope that cleared it up for ya?

    I disagree.

    Making a statistical comparison of groups as a whole does not imply or demand that EVERY individual in the group follow the comparison.

    If I said elephants are bigger than horses would you argue with me and say "no, unless I have absolute proof that every elephant is bigger than any horse."

    Why are we even talking about racism here, get over yourselves people. This wasn`t meant to be racist and the only people that make it racist are the ones who have to go and point it out. Yes the title could have a few contexts but does that make you racist for expecting to see something other then gymnastics?

    @holy god.

    i would ,) i follow socrates in that: find a general statement that`s true then play with it until you find the exemption. redefine statement, repeat.

    so here goes!
    Those are physical traits your talking about.
    generaly speaking fully grown adult elephants are bigger then horses (exemptions aside)

    Being an athlete comes down to more then physical traits. (training/mindset/diet/etc.) so iether your comparison isn`t the right one, or i`m still hung over and i just missed the point.

    i guess the point i am trying to make is that.
    the fact that you are black (or blond or female) is a physical fact. wether you are good at sports comes down to other factors, which can be influenced/debated are subject to opinions and generalisations. can we agree on that?

    OK. Sure.

    Can we watch a single NFL or NBA game or watch any world class track competition and agree that obviously black people are the best athletes as a race?

    "Can we ... agree that obviously black people are the best athletes as a race?"

    Nope, not going to fall into that racist trap.

    "The myth of the black male`s racially determined, inherent physical and athletic superiority over the white male, rivals the myth of black sexual superiority in antiquity." Harry Edwards, sociologist, Black.

    If your theory was true then blacks would be dominating the winter olympics games as much as the summer olympic games. There are many sports were the majority of the top athletes are not black, such as swimming, tennis, golf, cycling, mountain climbing, skateboarding, skiing (both types), diving, etc...

    Swimming: Just wait
    Tennis: Ever heard of the Williams sisters?
    Golf: Or that Tiger guy for a decade?

    Cycling, climbing, skateboarding, skiing, are sports black people don`t in general do.

    There also isn`t a whole lot of money in those. If you are as athletic as Lebron James are you gonna go make a billion dollars in the NBA or be a professional diver where you still need a day job?

    I`m talking pure athleticism, not a practiced sport that takes years to master and cost a lot of money.

    Run fast, jump high, jump far, run long, throw something, etc.

    You REALLY don`t think black people have an edge there?

    Black people don`t live in winter climates natively. Would be pretty hard for someone from Kenya or Jamaica to practice don`t you think? Cool Runnings aside.

    Have you ever been skiing? Count the black people. I`m sure they could, but they don`t really seem to have any interest in it.

    That`s true if you`re making a statistical comparison of groups.

    Which you aren`t.

    I`ll use an easily quantifiable and uncontroversial example:

    1) The average height of men in the UK is 8% bigger than the average height of women in the UK.

    That is a statistical comparison of groups. It is a true statement. It is not what you were doing.

    2) Men are taller than women.

    That is not a statistical comparison of groups. It is an absolute statement and can be proven false by the existence of any exception, even just one. In fact, there are millions of exceptions. It is a false statement. It is what you were doing.

    What you are doing is very different to what you are claiming to be doing.

    Hell no, we can agree that black people are dominatly represented in these evenst, that could be due to several factors which has nothing to do with race. such as
    -popularity among certian ethnic groups.
    -easy of practise. (kinda hard to play icehockey in the bronx yeah)
    -the judgement of "selectors" coaches and trainers.
    these are all factors that come into play and could be very well influenced by rascism positive or negative.

    HG: "If you are as athletic as Lebron James are you gonna go make a billion dollars in the NBA or be a professional diver where you still need a day job?"

    So you`re going to condescend to them and pretty much say they are greedy? Really?

    As I peruse through the richest athletes list, the top ten include, 2 golfers, 2 race car drivers, 3 football players, 2 basketball players and a wrestler. Overall, in the top 50, Golfers top the list.

    Also, are you going to try and tell me that basketball doesn`t take years of practice to master? And have you seen what basketball shoes cost lately?

    "Black people don`t live in winter climates natively."

    Detroit, Buffalo, New York, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Boston and Toledo all have large black populations and plenty of wintertime snow. Are you going to tell me they haven`t adapted to it in 150 years? That there aren`t venues for them there to try winter sports?

    There`s an example of cultural factors that is particularly famous at the moment.

    4 out of the 5 fastest 100m runners are from Jamaica.

    Is anyone going to argue that this proves that Jamaicans are a seperate "race" to everyone else and that Jamaicans (absolute statement, i.e. all of them) are naturally superior sprinters? HolyGod? It`s the same argument that you`re already making, so if you don`t agree with it then why not?

    Personally, I think a more plausible explanation is that sprinting has a very high profile in Jamaica and is strongly supported by the authorities, especially in schools. It`s pretty much the national sport. So despite a relatively small population, Jamaica has a relatively large pool of potential world class sprinters.

    I would say Jamaica puts more importance on sprinting. That is why Jamaicans are the best sprinters of all the black people.

    However the next 50 top sprinters are black people from other countries.

    America is a majority white country, yet all its top sprinters are black. Same for England, France, Germany, etc.

    Does being black make you the fastest sprinter in the world? No. Training does. But white people train too, so where are all the white sprinters if race has NOTHING to do with it?

    494 of 500. That is pure coincidence in your mind?

    It`s greedy to want to be successful? Says who?

    A large portion of those populations are lower income. Winter sports are expensive. Basketball is basically free.

    I don`t know if that is the reason, but I grew up in michigan. I grew up skiing. If you ever saw a black person skiing it was a huge rarity. I now ski colorado and northern arizona quite a bit. Same thing. Can`t tell you why, but I can tell you black people don`t ski in large numbers.

    Says just about every liberal source in the world.

    "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" - Karl Marx

    That`s the liberal socialist mantra. Anyone that`s rich is evil, they got their money on the back of others and don`t deserve it. And all that other class warfare stupidity.

    The problem is, even in a socialist/communist system greed is a constant. You can`t suppress the human desire to want more without instituting crushing authoritarianism.

    America is a majority white country, yet all its top sprinters are black. Same for England, France, Germany, etc.

    there is a relative simple explanation for that. slavery and selective breeding. you`d have to be damn fit to survive the boat trip to america/ europe, to survive the forced labour/ poor nutrition. you see where i am going with this yeah? now do the same with white people for the same amount of time. then we`ll talk statistics m`kay?

    or as someone pointed out.. america has the best long distance swimmers but doesn`t use them. do you know how far the journey is from cuba to florida?
