Hey at least you used the qualifier "athletically" this time. So you're still a divisive asshole, but at least you're not lying.

Same for whites being mentally superior.

And as you can see, the mental advantage is far more important.

As that person said, it's not really physically possible to inflict any real damage when the kids are that small.

If you accept that there are athletic genetic differences, you must accept that there are intellectual genetic differences.

And yes, asians are smarter than whites.

However, I'm pretty sure that whites are more spatially aware, they're more athletic, and they have much higher levels of empathy.

People in China literally run people over repeatedly after accidentally hitting them with their cars... because it's cheaper.

The problem as described by Dr. Bennet Omalu, who discovered CTE, is not simply concussions, but really the sub-concussive hits that players experience. That study relies on injuries as the key data point, but injuries aren't the only issue. Here is an excerpt from a discussion with Ann McKee, who is the director of the Boston University CTE Center.

Quote:
KP: Are kids younger than 14 more at risk for brain injuries than adults?

A.M.: That’s an important question. Kids’ brains are developing. Their heads are a larger part of their body, and their necks are not as strong as adults’ necks. So kids may be at a greater risk of head and brain injuries than adults.

KP: Should those kids play tackle football?

A.M.: No. I would advise kids not to play any sports, such as tackle football, where they are exposed to repeated blows to the head.

KP: Are you a sports fan?

A.M.: Yes, I was a gymnast and played volleyball growing up in Wisconsin. My three children played soccer and lacrosse. I grew up as a Green Bay Packers fan. I am not against sports. We want kids to play sports, but we want them to be safe.
