You would think so, but you would be wrong. Your illogical "If..then" statements don't capture the nuances of the American population...
Would Tiger Woods would be MORE popular if he were white? How bout A LOT less popular. How bout so less popular you wouldn't really care about him at all, just like you don't care about the other great white golfers out there.
If Pete Sampras were black, he'd be the most celebrated athlete ever. Unfortunately for him, he's a boring white guy.
Still think being white in sports is better? We love black people. Can't get enough of them.
