Re: Slave Breeding
In Response To: Re: Slave Breeding ()

I started a thread on this before doing a search, so though i would add it on here

It is often said that black athletes are good at running and sports due to 'breeding' I was of the opinion this idea began only after the top selling 'mandingo' erotic slave novels by kyle onstott of the late 50s. Onstott was a dog breeder, and probably assumed if dogs can be bred to be passive, docile, playful or aggressive and loyal, so could the enslaved. And he wrote about specialist slave breeding plantations. The masters raped the women as well, as the studs, who were lusted after by the slave masters wife in his books

I would be wary or cynical of books on this subject, even those written by academics. Perhaps they were influenced by the 'mandingo' novels and were seeking to confirm the prejudiced thinking of the author

Another thing, white athletes dominate, swimming, weightlifting, cycling, rowing, ice hockey, skiing and other sports, no one argues their genes gives them an advantage
