To get the answers we really want we have to dig past the superficial layers that make up our biases and prejudicial thoughts on a subject.
Perhaps it would be best if you followed your own advice. At least as far as the most recent debate you admittedly did not provide anything that would be classified by most as evidence…just hunches. At least that’s what you wrote.
There’s certainly a time and place to say that we need more info and it’s always bad to jump to conclusions but when the overwhelming majority of data (research, performance, and otherwise) point in one direction only then it’s tough not to follow that lead.
Superficial layers, biases and prejudicial thoughts occur when your argument rests on the false assumption that the majority of one group are all poor, live in warm weather and are encouraged to be physically active throughout their lifetime while the entirety of another group is wealthier, live in cold(er) climates, and are discouraged from early physical activity; all the while providing no global evidence (i.e- socio-economic stats from WHO, population likelihood data, physiological research, performance data, etc) to support it.
I don’t want to rehash the ethnicity thread here so let’s leave the specifics out this thread. I did want to address those points since you brought them up. Instead I suggest we discuss the role and value of various kinds of evidence and why we think and do what we think and do.
