Since women have their own Olympic events because they can't compete with men, should white guys have their own track & field events since they can rarely beat black guys? And yes I saw the race last night with the fast white dude.

P.S. Should we also separate swimming classes into blacks & whites since white guys dominate?

If no, please explain why it would be any different than seperating men and women.

Women and men have CLEAR biological differences in the way their bodies are built.


The differences WITHIN GENDER among different "races" are MUCH more subtle, and are often related to diet and upbringing.

So I vote "no" on principle (apart from the practical impossibilities of implementing such a system)

Same for ice hockey. Same for dressage. Same for polo. Notice the pattern?


How many inner-city shitty school and poor black rural school districts have their own pools and ice rinks?

They already have them for people like you

It's called the Special Olympics...

Quite a few where I live. Also, a black female swimmer from France won a silver medal at this year's Olympics. How many swimming medals have you won?

Becasue teh performance gap is not wide enuf to justify it.

I just cant believe the ignorance of this thread... the only reason why there are no black swimmers is because they are afraid of water. Geez... get the facts straight.
