Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Biological Differences in Races

I think it’s a given that blacks tend to have greater speed and agility than most whites. In the Olympics, base steals in baseball, running backs, and wide receivers; African Americans are in the top of all of these. I think this is most likely due to the hard physical labor African Americans were forced to do as slaves in early America and the whole theory of survival of the fittest. However when it comes to which race is generally smarter than others, I don’t think these reasons would carry over to say why one race is “smarter” than any others. Do you think different races’ brains are wired differently or have higher mental capacities? Or do you believe in the nature v. nurture debate and think it has to do with environment people are brought up in? What’s your opinion?
