White Genetically Weaker Than Blacks, Study Finds
Fox News ^ | Friday, February 22, 2008

White Americans are both genetically weaker and less diverse than their black compatriots, a Cornell University-led study finds.

Researchers analyzed the genetic makeup of 20 Americans of European ancestry and 15 African-Americans.

The Europeans showed much less variation among 10,000 tested genes than did the Africans, which was expected, but also that Europeans had many more possibly harmful mutations than did African, which was not.

That’s pretty good for genetically inferior people who managed to take over the world.

WoW!
Now that is what you call a clear, concise, comprehensive, all inclusive, completely scientific study if ever there was one!
No doubt about it!
Done deal!
'Nuff Said!

To tell you the truth, I’m kinda ‘TARD’ of the whole stupid foolishness — what does it accomplish?

You’re mixed race? Are you healthier than most people you know?

I’m half Hispanic and half Anglo Saxon. My mother always said this made us healthier. When all my friends got the flu or colds I stayed healthy and that is pretty much true to this day. Not that I haven’t had my problems, but maybe not as many as most of my friends.

..and whites are genetically smarter than blacks.

If someone scientist published the reverse, he'd be hailed.

The argument in this study is similar to arguing that a mutt is genetically superior to a purebread Jack Russell.

The point is that genetic diversity is therefore more genetically "strong", and thus, natural selection weakens the genetic strength of a population.

I’ve never seen a shaved head on a black guy that didn’t look better than having hair.

Just when did this diversity begin????

The diversity began in the generations following Adam and Eve.

I don’t think I got fewer colds than the people around me...but most of them were mixed-race too.

But I work out more than most people, so I’m healthier in that category!

It kind of depends on the mutt. And the Jack Russell.

I guess Puerto Ricans, Brazilians, and Mexicans are superior to us all as they are a mixture of different races. Not.

I just read on another thread that, for the first time, the electron has just been filmed...in Sweden.

Not Biblical nor is it genetically as demonstrated by DNA possible.

“The doubly diluted genetic diversity has allowed “bad” mutations to build up in the European population, something that the more genetically varied African population has had more success in weeding out.”

and in the US - this explains why blacks tend to have more incidence of diabetes, heart problems, strokes, kidney failure, etc. ?
