    Re: Where is my topic?

    <Coward. To deny actual differences is racist. You are a racist of the worst kind, one of the reasons that we have the problems we do. Coward.>

    Nerve, first of all, the biological differences between races are miniscule. In the American (and many western European societies) the issues of life-style and culture are more socio-economic than based on race.
    Second of all, did it occur to you that accepting the above facts may not be "politically correct" or cowardly, but actually not be biased?

        I'd say DIGRESSING defeats the purpose of this board and this post.

          Would you relax. I just thought it was a very timely comment-even a little funny. Maybe it is only this little tiny burg that doesn't buy much in the way of fruit and vegetables. You can't argue with the fact that that is not a good thing whether you are a member of WHO or not. As far as being a bigot, I don't personaly know any canucks that are as pro-American as I am. I just put up my yankee flag for crying out loud.

            What is the current topic of discussion? It seems that this thread has descended into the bickering and squabbling that most do after 40 or so posts.

                  "Miniscule" differences biologically can equate to large differences in the real world, something you probably already know, but won't admit to. It wouldn't be PC.

                          However, when you consider that
                          >you have 270 million people, huge possibilities

                          Hmmm. Didn't David Krummenacker & Regina Jacobs get world medals this year? The U.S. doesn't dominate in middle distance (far from it), but it's not like we're not in the mix.

                          Considering how few black Americans overall have even taken up distance running, can you even legitimately claim for a FACT that this population has a "genetically worse predispositions for these distances"? The increased diversity that I'm seeing in U.S. middle distance races suggests otherwise. Black Americans are also significantly likelier to be overweight than their white counterparts -- a fact you ignore as it complicates your thesis.

                          However, I wholeheartedly agree that America has an obesity problem. If we don't get a handle on it now, it will really impact our sports future.

                            Natasha, it is much worse down here. Down in

                            Why is she shopping for produce at a Walmart. Try a grocery store of some sort.

                              "Americans are not just getting fatter; they are ballooning to extremely obese proportions at an alarming rate.

                              The number of extremely obese adults -- those who are at least 100 pounds overweight -- has quadrupled since the 1980s to about 4 million. That works out to about 1 in every 50 adults."
