Dominance of Black people in sport Score: 4.5 February 22nd, 2011 by

Sports test your mental and physical attributes.You need to be on top of the game if you are a sports-person.Lately,There is a debate regarding the reason as to why black people are dominating in US sports,whether it is based on sociological factors or due to physiological factors.I believe it to be due to sociological factors.

Another reason for black people dominance in US sports is due to the large scale immigration from Africa and other countries into US.
