  1. Why Are Black NFL Draft Picks Faster Than White NFL Draft Picks?

    Because IQ is a drag?

    • LOL: Sean, Ron Mexico
  2. Speed is a social construct.

  3. Crank says:

    Perhaps their frontal lobes are not weighing them down as much

    • LOL: Kolya Krassotkin
  4. Mike Tre says:

    The faster white skill position players are discriminated against to an extent.

  5. Running backs, wide receivers, and defensive backs are faster than linemen, linebackers, fullback, and quarterbacks.

    On twitter the Wonderlic pair appear as on the same thread as the running pair. I understand that juxtaposing the two is the point, but it would be neat to see them roam twitter separately to see the different comments they accumulate.

    And of course the answer is White Supremacy in both cases. On running, back people have to work “twice as hard” compared to white people who get the benefit of the doubt.

    On wonderlic it’s also white supremacy: White nfl owners and teammates aren’t willing to hire the smart blacks since they know they’d be too hard to manipulate, kkkontrol, and exploit. Look at Colin Kaepernick. He’s a smart guy and the league banned him because he’s too smart to bow down to them. (1) >.>

    1) ok i’m mostly trolling, but I have to admit that Kaepernick was pretty impressive in being able to get Nike level money for several years while not having to deal with the wear and tear of actually playing NFL football.

  7. Arclight says:

    Obviously it’s because of all those running tutors that black players use and white parents aren’t smart enough to hire for their own sons. It’s time to ban the 40 and vertical jump from the combine to ensure a more level and accurate playing field.

  9. i mean a lot of them are offensive linemen. so correct for that. go position by position. definitely, 100% for sure, no position players run 4.9 on average.

    the little known or little expressed truth today in 2021 is that pale players are actually required to be FASTER than african players on average for the position, or they can’t be drafted. if you’re a defender, receiver or running back, you MUST be faster than average or you probably won’t be allowed to play at all. it’s that simple. there are few average speed position players and zero below average speed position players now. if you’re pale, you’re either an above average player, or you’re not allowed in the league.

    meanwhile, hundreds of scrub african players fill the league. this is why i say that ball sports have sort of turned into a jobs program for africans. the league has found a way to give jobs to hundreds of marginal players in the interest of getting them some money. if they wash out in a couple years, no problem, they’re just replaced by the next wave of scrubs.

    i think there were only 6 defenders drafted in 20201 who weren’t african. that’s just idiotic nonsense, and reflects the jobs program nature of the league. there isn’t even the slightest justification for that based on ability, even at the fringes of the ‘well, they’re faster’ argument. a lot of their measured performances at the combine at literally lower, so what could possibly be the justification for drafting all these scrub players other than some sort of social program.

  10. Take this with a dash of salt.

  12. Anonymous[141] • Disclaimer says:

    I ran a 4.6 in HS and a 4.5 in college. I was a decent HS strong safety, but not college material. Played a little corner in HS, but we had two black guys that were faster than I (and better). We had a very fast HS team though. One legit pro WR prospect, who ran a legit 4.3. And several DL and LBs who were faster than I was. Very small team, but great coach and won 4A districts.

    Always wanted to be Pat Fischer (pretty small). Really enjoyed HS ball, where the rules still allowed mugging the pass catcher as long as the ball was not in the air. Plus SS allows a fair amount of fun run defense without the mess of dealing with OL that much. And TEs are slow. And tall. And always fun to be the short guy beating on a tall guy. If the play wasn’t coming towards me or I didn’t know what was going on, I would just hit the TE to mess with his head. He’d always complain that there was no point. But I thought it was good to mess with them. And might as well get some contact if not near the play.

    But I was really far from the skill required to do anything much. Above average HS wrestler though–always thought that helped with tackling.

    Nurture pressure on nature . They have been trained to run away from slave catchers, racist mobs and the police for three centuries . Their ancestors were harshly selected to run away from crocodiles, lions and rhinos.

  14. None of the Above: Blacks’ faster times are due to centuries of white racism; only those who could outrun vicious whites and their dogs survived.

  15. AceDeuce says:

    As “teens”, they train with TV sets, heavy purses, etc. under their arms when they run. Of course that builds speed.

  16. Forbes says:

    60% of whites drafted (numbering 146) are QB and OL–not-speed positions.

    54% of blacks drafted (numbering 350) are RB, WR, and DB–speed positions.

  17. @Mike Tre

    What I find surprising is the date of your linked article, November 27, 2008. It reads like it was written today and explores similar current racial themes. I didn’t notice many of the racial rifts back then compared to what we see today, perhaps because the divisiveness is so much more heavily promoted now. And we’ve had another half-a-generation of time for the propaganda to have more effect.

    @Ralph L

    Denser bones can support more fast twitch muscle. The downside is not swimming quickly.

    What evidence is there that blacks have denser bones than others (per overall weight)?

    Why do you assume that only fast twitch muscle would benefit as opposed to other muscle types?

    Why wouldn’t fast twitch muscle be helpful in swim racing like in say, running?

    Lots of assumptions packed into your statement. You might be correct but there would need to be number of factual issues to be demonstrated first.

  20. Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder answered this question decades ago (in 1988), and became an early victim of cancellation as a result.
    Negroes don’t like to be reminded that their slave ancestors were not selected for intelligence.

  21. Maybe both sets of data are explained by the same thing.

    On average, blacks have smaller heads proportionate to their body size than whites. It’s true; take a look sometime. On average.

    Heads are heavy.

  22. @ic1000

    Thanks for the share. I don’t pay much attention to Olympic level running. I remember the 3 Steve’s (Cram, Ovett, and Scott) and Seb Coe, but had never heard of the Ingbregtsen Brothers. The slowest and oldest of the three runs a 3:31+ 1500m… Holy shit!

  23. A question that has been asked profusely asked by based Whites, thru the last 40-50 YEARS NOW.

  24. @Macumazahn

    You beat me to it Macumazahn…

    “The black is a better athlete to begin with, because he’s been bred that way. Because of his high thighs that go up into his back. And they can jump higher and run faster because of their bigger thighs.”

    “This all goes back to the Civil War, when, during the slave trading, the slave owner would breed his big black to his big woman so that he would have a big black kid. That’s where it all started.”
