    There are physical characteristics of the hip and overall extension mobility among black athletes that gives them an edge on the track and other arenas - Muscle extension, rotary ease and otehr things - it's not a cultural thing, many (not all) but many are simply more athletic in structure. Longer reach - wider stride . . . stuff like that.

    I think that's a myth. From what I've read, there are some physical/genetic differences, but the greater differences are in their culture.

    "The athletes do show differences from the population as a whole," says Pitsiladis. "But they are not so overwhelming to say that this is the reason for their success," he says, and no single gene for endurance running emerged.

    Genetics has received considerably more research attention. Some have suggested that East Africans' genes might be predisposed to endurance events but many studies have concluded the same thing - there is, at present, no evidence of this.

    Eddy Murphy can pretend to be a black spy disguised as a white guy, Steppin' Fetchit is banned from TV.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Is it Ok for white comedians to bash blacks? If not, then you may suffer from hypocrisy.

    Re: Is it Ok for Black Comedians to Bash Whites?

    Yes, as long as it's funny. And as long as the intent is lighthearted. It's not hard to tell a joke from a truly bigoted comment. The intent of the speaker makes all the difference.

    But mostly the funny thing.

    Of course it is. I think bash is the wrong word, but making fun of? Absolutely. Some comics rely on racial humor, and none of them are good (see Carlos Mencia), but some of the best use it perfectly:

    1) Dave Chappelle
    2) Bill Burr
    3) Patrice O'Neil
    4) Louie C.K.

    Here's Bill Burr:

    In the late nineties this British comedy group often used contrasts of Indian and British stereotypes. This most famous of their sketches, pulled many people up short with its acute observations of the antics of some of their fellow Brits.

    once again...yes it's okay for black comedians to make fun of whites, and yes it's okay for whites to bash blacks. But make sure it's funny. Because if it's not, and you start talking about nooses and trees, you better start watching your back.
