    I talked with a co worker who is a hawkeye fan..and he said, "We don't have any good players such as any Black players on Iowa...and they are better BB players."

    I really got to thinking...are black atheletes better at basketball overall? Is he right?

    He said we should win by 8.

    If you can't make that observation by yourself then there is no helping you.

    I think it depends. Honestly, theres no reason that a white person can't be just as good as a black person. However, how many white pro athletes are there in basketball? Not many, so theres your answer.

    My translation of the OP: "I needed something stupid to post. My life was vaguely incomplete. It still is, but now I've said something stupid."

    It is interesting that lately Iowa brings in more white guys, whereas ISU brings in more African American players. Not racist just an observation.

    A lot of black athletes get into sports to get out of where they are from. They are very motivated and use that motivation to hone their skills.

    (This always isn't always necessarily black people or athletes. See Eminem.)

    It's really not that interesting that a team full of players from Iowa is white, and a team full of players not from Iowa is not...
