    "It so happens that in the architecture of the human body of West African-origin runners, the center of gravity is significantly higher than in runners of European origin," which puts them at an advantage in sprints on the track, he said.

    Individuals of West African-origin have longer legs than European-origin athletes, which means their belly-buttons are three centimeters (1.18 inches) higher than whites', said Bejan.

    You are aware of what happened to Nick the Greek as a result of making statements similar to that contained in the OP?

    Couldn't have been any worse than what happened to Jimmy the Greek I'll bet. And Jimmy was correct by the way.
