Rarity


When the Cowboys play the Rams this weekend, you will see a rarity: The starting running back for the Rams is a white guy. (And he's starting only because of an injury to the first stringer.)

The Ticket just did an uncomfortable segment on why the NFL hasn't had a 1,000 yard white rusher since 1985. One guy called in and said Jimmy The Greek was right. All three hosts were too scared to respond.

For those that don't remember, Jimmy was essentially banned from TV after he said this in 1988:

The black is a better athlete to begin with because he's been bred to be that way -- because of his high thighs and big thighs that goes up into his back, and they can jump higher and run faster because of their bigger thighs. This goes back all the way to the Civil War when during the slave trading, the owner -- the slave owner would breed his big black to his big woman so that he could have a big black kid.

Oh yeah and A&M has had such a challenging schedule so far this year... as usual.

It's real easy talking tough when you're playing Baylor. "Good luck you're going to need it?" The only challenging team you played so far doubled you up there tough guy. So far you've played: Montana State, Fresno State and LA-Monroe and then got Stomped by unranked Miami. Check back with us when you start playing realy teams. until then, STFU!

Why did'nt Eddie Murphy get banned from tv with his famous SNL line---SILLY NEGRO? Rush Limbaugh and Jimmy the Greek did'nt call them negroes and did'nt even say they were silly???

In reality there is a lot of truth to that statement. As sad as the history is for slaves they were bred for physical attributes.

To 10:39...
Rush and Jimmy are WHITE men and are not permitted to say ANYTHING referencing the differences between people of colour. You heard the Brothers, Al and Jesse in Jena, La inform us that in the United States it is ONLY white people who can commit hate crimes.

Jeez, caucasians get nasty when their authority and status in the hierarchy of power is threatened.
I don't agree with what Jackson or Sharpton say about hate crimes or bigotry but I do understand the reasoning behind it, considering their race's history of slavery.
By the same token, I don't think Jimmy the Greek was blatantly racist when he said what he said, just tactless and clueless. (maybe much like Bill O'Reilly recently)

Whomever came up with calling 9:14 saw-e-ag, that was a good one. I steal it from you sometimes, but always with a mental hats-off to you. He is one saw-e-ag (& obnoxious & overbearing too).

Please do not quote me on any of this, but I am trying to remember what I researched on the subject several years ago.
Like anything else there is some truth to the slavery breeding. The biggest and best were typically used to try and produce the best product, but many genetics believe that in all things relative that slavery in America was short-lived and could not have produced the lasting effects that we believe of a superior athletic black race.
Basically the slave owners went to Africa and got the biggest and strongest specimens for slavery, but it does not mean that all black people are like that. For instance, in general, slaves were not taken from the African areas that do not produce the more athletic structure. For instance, the Kenyan areas do not produce the football player body. The reason for the differences is pure adaptation to the environment.
So, like I said some truth, but hundreds of thousands of years of adaptation to their enviroment is a more valid reason than selective slavery breeding. I’m sure if the slave owners desired skinny endurance runners several hundreds of years ago then the US would be winning all the marathons instead of pro football games and track meets.
