Canadians dominate hockey due to where they are from not biological reasons People need a reason for why black athletes are better then whites Breeding myth monkeys Overrepresentationunderrepresentation disproportionate representation Jimmy the greek said blacks were better at sports because the strongest slaves were bread during slavery Al Campanis commented that African Americans may not have some of the necessities to fill key functionary positions in sports 1930s Jew basketba because it is a city game and when they immigrated they picked up basketball good because they are tricky and sly Jesse Owens cobb measured owens and other athletes and concluded that being black had nothing to do with athleticism 0 Coach Deam Cromwell didn39t buy into thinks that whoever wants it the most wins Italian American Brooklyn Dodger hit 40 homeruns in one session Roy Campanella good trivia because people assume he is black Cabinasian Tiger woods uses it to refer to his race caucasion black indian asain Viva baseba treated badly in US everyone thought they were black when they were other ethnicity Cobb the split sexond difference in performances of the great negro and white sprinters of the past and present are insignificant from an anthropological standpoint There is no way to measure race what is black in one country may not be black in another Anthropometry system of identification and classification based on bodily measurements Buoyancy myth myth that denser muscles and bones lower body fat make those of African descent less buoyant make them sink 0 Black children are 3 times more likely to drown than white chHdren Buoyancy myth and skull thickness are examples of scientific racism where scientific measurements are given biased meanings measings rationalize the idea that one race is inferior to another Problems using biological explanations o Suggests physical superiority intellectual inferiority bodymind o Downplays effort training determination etc o Ignored impact social and cultural factors Cultural channeling Role models Stererotypes and prejudice o Overgeneralizes and ignores differences within race Different countries define race differently 0 Brazil many different meanings for black Social construct concept or practice created by a particular group of people not a naturally occurring phenomenon 1 drop rule 1 drop of African bood black maybe its not really about race but about fear kalenjinis make up 12 of the population but 75 of elite sprinters o it is more appropriate to think of differences in the population rather then racial differences the bred during slavery story is a myth because differences have been noticeable for a long time not just a few hundred years centrality 0 location nature of responsibilities frequency of interaction with other positions stacking 0 positions segregation by race or ethnicity in team sports major group members tend to occupy central positions minority members occupy peripheral positions key functionaries cobb 0 positions within a social system that are capable of influence and performance crucial activities 0 coaches owners etc central 0 located in center leadership requires mental attributes high discrimination peripheral 0 outside center does not require leadership requires physical attributes low discrimination focuses on track because blacks make up the majority of the players studies revealed that Owens had a shorter heel none and larger calf muscle science had not revealed a single trait peculiar to the negro alone to which is athletic achievements could be attributed the biggest misconception in sports Is that blacks dominate the playing fields while white people take supporting roles there is a steady decline in African americans in sports because of the emergence of other European minorities and the rise of the black middle class the notion of blacks being better athletes is faulty purely by definition because blacks are given fewer opportunites in other areas so more of them play sports blacks have fewer oportunites to prove themselves superior slavery cant be the only reason for blacker being athleteic cultural and environmental factors must be considered as well most of the gifted black sprinters are from the south and most of the gifted black distance runners are from Kenya it is not a crime or even racist to acknowledge basic physical dfferences and characteristics among races The danger occurs when uninformed and unqualified people conclude that so caed superior physical human being translates into a limited human being intelligence wise jimmy the greek Snyder said blacks are bigger because of slave breeding when he said it people were angry and called him stupid campanis said there is no prejudice blacks just aren39t smart enough for some positions the perception of black dominance doesn39t give them enough credit for their training and implies blacks use brawn where white use
