The Single Most Amazing Number in Human Biodiversity Studies: 72, by Steve Sailer.
[T[he single favorite event at the Olympics among the public … is track and field’s 100 meter dash.
This Olympic’s race to find the World’s Fastest Man was won for the third time in a row by Jamaica’s giant goofball Usain Bolt. …
The New Yorker recently inquired “How Fast Would Usain Bolt Run the Mile?“, only to find out according to his agent that “Usain has never run a mile.” …
From the God-Given-Differences Department:
The most striking statistic in human biodiversity studies … [is] that in both the 1984 and 1988 Olympics, all eight finalists each time in the men’s 100 meter sprints were black. When you considered that people of substantial sub-Saharan descent only make up a modest fraction of the world’s population, then 16 out of 16 was extraordinary. …
Rio now represents the 9th consecutive Olympics in which all 8 finalists in the men’s 100 meter dash were black. That’s 72 in a row.
I don’t think 72 out of 72 can be fully explained away as a social construct.
A commenter adds:
Don’t worry – the lefties will still argue that black is white – quite literally – right up to the day you die. Really, it’s a religious cultist thing with them – rationality goes out of the window.
Also expect them to persist in calling you nasty names merely for mentioning it, right up to the day you die.
Let’s say it is a social construct, for arguments sake. What does it say about your society that it is constructed so that it exports sprinters instead of mathematicians or computers?
