Ep 50: Did the breeding of Black people make them better at sports?

May 8, 2019

A Reddit user asked, did the breeding of Black people make them better at sports? And so, we decided to try and find an answer and talk about the question itself. Is the question racist? Is it ignorant? Or asked out of curiosity? Who knows? We dive into this and the intelligence of athletes based on race and the distinct differences in the way the media reports on White and Non-white athletes. This conversation is so layered. It lead us to talk about everything from the 2019 NFL Draft to Lebron James to bull riding to transgender participation in sports.
