Again, I hope Craig Pickering reads your posts, lol. You seem smart enough to know the arguments I would present, and I know what you are going to say. Society has been smart enough to let this issue alone. Unfortunately, there is still the stereotypes that blacks are dumb, whites are slow, and Asians aren’t creative. All are false. Ironically, the real taboo (literary ref to racist Jon Entine), is claiming that racial superiority does not exist.
How can you possibly explain that only 2 out of 600 top ten times are from people of Caucasian descent? If there were any standing to your participation argument, that would mean that we should expect for every 1,000 people participating in the sprinting events world wide over the past 30 years (roughly the period of time over which performances make that list) that only 3 of these people have been Caucasians. I repeat…for your participation argument to hold water, we should expect that only 3 out of every 1,000 people participating in the event across the entire world over the past 30 years are Caucasian.
