    Post Why Is It White Men Can't Jump

    I am sure you all have heard the phrase "White man can't jump". But why is this so?

    If anybody knows feel free to share. This question has been at the back of my mind for some time now.

    Post Re: Why Is It White Men Can't Jump

    Marko Milic, years ago, dunking over a car at the All star competition.

    Black athletes are absent from all of the winter sports, gymnastics (and if there was ever a sport were jumping was essential, gymnastics has to be it), swimming, etc. Even most of the team sports. And in the most popular of all the sports, the football, they are at best equal.

    Now, if you simply mean that blacks are better in basktebal, the reason lies in the popularity of the sport in the inner city ghettoes of the USA. Basketball is cheap to play, and frankly, the only feasible sport in the asphalt jungle.

    When you couple this a well developed programs from the high school, through college, to the pros, and the fact USA has close to 300 mil. people, it is not surprising they dominated the sport for years.

    And yet, the last 2 tournaments Americans performed dismaly, and weaknesses manifested themselves in all aspects of their game. More and more European kids are being drafted each year (if I am not mistaken, the next year most of the players drafted early will not be from the USA), all the while the gap between the NBA and Euroleague is shrinking.

    Also, if you compare American talent to that of Lithuania, or Croatia, or Serbia and Montenegro, all of which are smaller than the New York City alone, you realize that Americans are not so special.

    The NBA does feature some incredible (black) athletes. And I'll be first to agree that Michael Jordan, Shaq are among the best to ever play the game. But NBA is a bussiness, as well. It is there to entertain, and make money. And just as most every person knows about Einstein, but hardly anyone heard of Tesla, so Mr. Stern and his minions decide who will get the spotlight.

    Mikan, Pistol Pete, Bird, Petrovic, Stockton, Kukoc, Kirilenko and the list goes on. And please don't think it is on account of their superior basketball IQ only.

    But if one still insists the blacks are better, it is enough to say Arvydas Sabonis: stronger than Shaq, with mobility and passing/shooting skills of a guard. But don't take my word for it. Rather try to get the tape from the Olympics when he took that incredible physical specimen, and league MVP David Robinson to school.

    Blacks do not jump higher than Whites. Thats a bull**it myth. Most NBA Blacks were playing basketball from the day they almost started to walk. Imgaine someone who plays one sport every day of his life. Of course that he will become a great athlete no matter the colour of his skin...

    LOL I guess you mean soccer. When I first read this, I was thinking of American football, and I think we have to concede that they trump us at wide receiver and tailback, though not at QB.

    I believe the fact that Blacks of West African ancestry can run and jump higher and faster than whites can only be explained by a greater preponderance of type IIb (fast glycolytic) muscle fibers in their leg muscles. Interestingly, Northern European whites, mainly those of Falid, Borreby or Baltic extraction, are unsurpassed in heavy lifting and other upper-body powersports, so the blacks' increased leg musculature can't be solely the result of their higher testosterone increasing muscle mass, for it would not act in such a specific way.

    Blacks DO jump higher than whites, and there is also never going to be another white 100m world champion. We should deal with it. Every race has its particular specialized traits. I see a lot of insecure reactions in this thread, which are ironically similar to the responses of blacks when told they have lower average IQs for biological reasons.

    It's cheap and intellectually dishonest for putative racialists to contradict themselves by ascribing these differences to environment merely because we are jealous of their athletic prowess.

    I am not ascribing it to enviroment, but to daily training and activity.
    I've seen white caucussoids who can jump and are equally agile and fast as any black man. Not to mention not all blacks are talented in sport which can be said for any sub-race.

    It's interesting that most of the White guys who can play basketball come from the Balkans.

    Maybe that chart that says they have the most Negroid admixture has some truth to it after all. j/k

    So it's just a coincidence that blacks dominate the NBA to such a degree that most teams don't even have white players?

    It's not a coincedance, but it is also not a consequence of "negorid psyhical superiority". I would say that it has also much more deeper cultural backround as well in american society.

    Ask yourself how many negroes are training and playing basketball in high school in america and how many whites are doing the same and you will get unproportional figures.
