    I see your point Slim but the numbers just dont add up....I know plenty of black kids that have summer jobs...99.5% CB and RB that start in the NFL are black...whens the last time a world champion sprinter was not black?...I am not a racist just stating the obvious

    It's all in the genes...this applies to sports where explosion and speed are the most important attributes,in sports like MMA,Boxing and some others there are many more variables

    Big difference in indavidual sports and team sports.Very hard to compare, team sports such as football takes a man that can manage 11 diff personalities on Both sides of the football plus coaches and win Titles .

    [QUOTi="slim12, post: 749961, member: 3011"]My son played up in baseball due to his birthday. He usually sat behind an older kid for the first year each time he moved up. We were in SC one Saturday and it was hot, I mean SC brutal hot. The kid in front of him got hot and could not continue. My boy caught the last three or four innings of that game and all of the next.

    When the parents congratulated him afterwards for the gut check. One parent says, "Most kids give in or quit in that heat". And my son said at our house quitting is a bad idea". I am so glad that parent did not ask him to explain. LOL[/QUOTE]
    Slim I never left a game because I was to hot.I remember back and I didn't feel anything no matter how hot or cold it was and I don't remember hearing the crowd.Its funny , I have people ask me , you remember when we played so and so and you did this ? Believe it or not a lot of it I don't remember, I just laugh and say oh yea I remember that.

    I don't have numbers or statistics or the background to argue the point. The numbers are over whelming at 99.5% That sort of adds up to my point. Around here the athletic scholarships are awarded to mostly black kids and around here far more white kids work thru high school sports. I have seen the correlation twice on a personal level, and across the board an awful lot more.

    Just the other day I stopped by to watch the local high school doing 7 on 7's. There was not a white kid on the field for three schools. I asked my son where his friend's brothers were at. He said, 'working'.

    It may just be our area. Switching sports, ESPN is about to do a special on Kinston, NC and its pipeline to the NBA. My sister's kids went thru Kinston public schools. My nephew was a solid high school baseball player, and a fair football player. His is the same story. He made one summer camp a year, but worked the majority of the summer, and part time thru football and baseball season. When I asked I got the same response, real similar to our area.

    The worse part about making this point of view is that it stereotypes and that is just way wrong. Although it does group a lot of kids under one blanket, it is not intended to be that way. I know a lot of black kids that work, just the number of athletes that hold jobs is really low around here, almost non-existent.

    I see a lot of white kids excelling in the formative years but there always seems to be separation 9th thru 11th grades. A kid from here played at Coastal Carolina a few years back, still friends with a lot of the players that won the National title last month. He never worked. He was at every camp and was allowed to play ball/be tutored in ball all year. He is playing Triple A ball now.

    Different sports. But I would like to take a poll of that 99.5% DB's/CB's and ask them about their high school jobs? Either is season or out? That 99.5% will just about flip-flop.

    Like I said a conversation like this can go the wrong way it a quick minute. I can't speak to the inner city kids or the uber rich kids who play high school sports. Just our local area.

    And it goes both ways too. There is a kid my son played with who was the most talented catcher I have seen in a long time. My son who was offered a D-3 scholarship to play catcher, but if they were on the same team coming along, my boy played behind him. He was simply better than my son. When they got to high school there is an unwritten rule. "If you are black and fast you play in the outfield". The team sucked in turn. Same group, re-arranged won a Babe Ruth Regional title, and finished third in the country.

    Agreed. And it may be genetic.

    Turning on the TV is all the fact checking needed. I can't speak for all the areas around the country. I can only speak to mine. The kids that make it out of here athletically are a majority black and don't work. When we see them come along the white kids and the black kids are very close in athletic ability. The separation comes in the latter years. Maybe genetically the black kids develop ffaster during those years, I don't have the educational background to make the point.

    TV is the tell tale in the debate. But I would bet the number of RB's and DB's in the NFL can't speak of the part time job at the grocery store during high school.

    Genetics may be it but their environment shapes a lot.
