The PC Police

October 27, 2005 at 4:29 am (Rant, Sports)

They are really starting to get on my nerves. The football coach at the US Air Force Academy was reprimanded and forced to apologize for saying “Afro-American kids can run very well. That doesn’t mean that Caucasian kids and other descents can’t run, but it’s very obvious to me that they run extremely well.”

Black people are better athletes than white people, plain and simple. No one with a functioning brain could seriously dispute that. Without hypothesizing as to why that is a fact, I want to know who was offended? Whitey? Cry me a river. Black people? I doubt it. To anyone who actually thinks that isn’t true, answer me this: name one non-QB superstar in the NFL who isn’t black (Jeremy Shockey, Brian Urlacher, maybe). Name one superstar in the last 25 years in the NBA, other than Larry Bird, who isn’t black. Who held the past 10 world records in the 100 meters? The 200? The 110 hurdles? The long jump? Who holds the record for home runs (pre and post steroid era) and stolen bases in baseball? Who is the best golfer in the world? Who are two of the best female tennis players in the world? Who were the past 10 heavyweight boxing champions? It is absurd that indisputable facts are deemed offensive if they acknowledge a racial diaparity. When is this country going to recognize diversity other than through PC lip service? Sad.

    no shit grant. what is wrong with commenting that each and every race, color, culture whatever is DIFFERENT and it is those differences that should be MENTIONED and PRAISED.my father still winces when i call someone ‘black.’ so? i’m white. he’s black. someone else is ‘tan’ or whatever.i think we got so hung up on treating everyone the same, that we’ve lost sight of the fact that we aren’t actually the same. that’s the whole point. no one should be treated differently, but we’re all different.

    Um… so you guys would be fine if someone said it was “obvious” that whites are smarter than blacks? Because whites do better in school, etc. I think you have to consider what you’re saying before you open the door to blacks being better natural athletes. Then who is to say that asians aren’t just naturally smarter than everyone else?No easy answers here. I’m just sayin’ is all.

    Good point, but with regard to education, you have to factor in opportunity to the equation. Whites are clearly positioned better, as a group, to excel academically than blacks. The same cannot be said for blacks and athletics.

    People who make blanket statements are always wrong.

    I agree…I HATE people who generalize.
