The story I choose was the Sports Taboo by Malcom Gladwell. The word sports in the title caught my eye while I was flipping through the pages. I found the story very interesting and controversial. The essay begins with the subject why blacks are better than whites in sports. An example he gives is the track field. Before the sprinting and fast races belonged to the blacks and the long distance belonged to the whites but now both short and distancing running belong to the blacks. Gladwell tries t
to explain this reason. He goes as far as body structure. Blacks have more an advantage because they have stronger calves and better bone structure he says. The reason for there dominant in sports is because they lack opportunities elsewhere. Gladwell explains how blacks may dominate the sports field but when they are matched next to the whites in academic ability they fail miserably. His reasons are that blacks grow up in a worst environment then the whites. He does give examples such as S.A.T. scores.
