You guys went evolution > your opinion up on our asses here. lol
What I will say is that we've gone off slightly tangentially to what earlier posts were claiming. The earlier posts were about selective breeding somehow strengthening the gene pool of African-Americans during the slavery period.
Wow, you're really mischaracterizing my argument. My bad though. I'm honestly not very good at communicating my thoughts to others so I'm not even gonna try anymore- in this context at least.
While I don't think racism needs any sort of qualifier, my sister and her nutjob hippie Berkeley friends all preached to me that only Whitey® could be racist since the other minorities didn't possess any sort of power in the racist institution that is the United States of America. So maybe it needs a qualifier to show that anyone can be a racist? Hell if I know.

Second-- the genetic mutations would not have furthered and maybe even digressed once they established a society essentially based on eating cow **** and trying not to get sick... their survival of the fittest had nothing to do with being fit, but being lucky to be naturally immune to disease or have the disease not affect them in a serious manner. They established granaries... because they could not harvest food in the winter, whereas in Africa it wasn't necesarry. and granaries lead to complex societies(who manages the food, how much food does each person get) and all along Cow's were taking dumps in the food, and thats why it was basically survival was contingent on chance. Rather than ability and skill in Africa.
THird--- thank you for strengthening my argument.
Fourth-- It was granaries man... that was the basis of government. Africans have no use for granaries and conserving food, because its always there to be caught, and saving it does not provide much of an advantage. They weren't inept, just making the best of circumstance. They became herders when they realized they could provide a good and get paid by the people who had "by chance" obtained a government which emphasized getting paid.
Fifth-- Ya, but disease was only a badluck facet of African life (I don't know... I'm just guessing from context)... getting a European plague and dieing. It was good luck if you survived the plague in europe.
Sixth-- Pheromones... we are innately attracted most to those who are most genetically different from us, genetic diversity causes mutation, mutation causes advantage (and disadvantage, but thats not a huge issue).
this was an interesting discussion. does it still apply? let's discuss the racialism.
Black people are darker and more athletic because their ancestors lived in a sunnier and warmer climate. That way they had more time to run and play. Their skin is darker because it was an adaptation to spending a lot of time in the sun.
Did I get that right?
In case it hasn't been said already, there is no such thing as "reverse racism." Racism is racism no matter what race it is ism-ing toward.
All I want to say is that "reverse racism" is a false term. There is nothing reverse about it. It is a term used by the media in an attempt to sound educated and informed. Racism is racism. Period.
