Christophe Lemaitre 9.98 First White Man To Run Sub 10 Seconds
The lone white man running 100 meters in under 10 seconds. 70 blacks and one white are in the select group of Athletes that run 100 meters in under 10 seconds. Even on the European Championship, he is the only white guy!
Maybe he could be the first white man in decades to qualify for the 100 meter finals? Maybe the races are not equal? Or are whites and Asians just disadvantaged and discriminated in running? See some politically correct attempts to explain away the obvious:
Nearly all the sprinters who have beaten the 10-second barrier are of West African descent (with the exceptions of Australian runner Patrick Johnson, French sprinter Christophe Lemaitre and Namibian Frankie Fredericks). No sprinter of predominantly Asian or East African descent had officially achieved this feat, though unofficially the Polish Marian Woronin surpassed the barrier with a time of 9.992 seconds, until French athlete Christophe Lemaitre ran in 9.98 on July 9, 2010. Colin Jackson (a mixed race athlete and former world record holder in the 110 metre hurdles) noted that both his parents were talented athletes and suggested that biological inheritance was the greatest influence, rather than any perceived racial factor. Furthermore, successful black role models in track events may reinforce the racial disparity. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10-second_barrier
A misunderstanding: some people argue that the fact that there is one guy among 70 blacks is proof that the races are equal. Nobody argues that the races are totally different, it is the famous bell curve: there is a small difference in the mean, and a large difference at the extreme ends at the Bell curve. Just as there are no white top 10 world championship 100 meter runners, there are no black Math or Physics Nobel Prize winners.
Also very funny: those black racists, who gleefully defend black superiority in 100 meter running, are not aware that by the same logic and theory (see Rushton, below) Blacks are less intelligent and more prone to crime.
More articles on Race on Human-Stupidity.com. Rushton asserts that research shows blacks to have more testosterone and more fast twitch muscles. According to Rushton’s racial theories, r-selected populations excel in short time mating strategies, where fighting and running skills are advantagous while k-selection favors more social organisation and long term planning.
[Rushton] asserts that Negroids use a strategy more toward an r-selected strategy (produce more offspring, but provide less care for them) while Mongoloids use the K strategy most (produce fewer offspring but provide more care for them), with Caucasoids exhibiting intermediate tendencies in this area.
He further asserts that Caucasoids evolved more toward a K-selected breeding strategy than Negroids because of the harsher and colder weather encountered in Europe, while the same held true to a greater extent for Mongoloids. Rushton argues that the survival challenges of making warm clothes, building durable shelter, preserving food, and strategically hunting large animals all selected genes for greater intelligence and social organization among the populations that migrated to cold climates. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race,_Evolution,_and_Behavior
