Recent publication of race based intelligence differentials coincides with stereotypes of the "dumb black" -Bell Curve. As a function of same athletes of African descent dominate in basketball and other physically rigorous sports. Although it is assumed, conclusive data establishing anatomical and / or genetic superiority of such athletes does not exist. Athletes of European descent blessed with similar physical gifts underachieve as a function of pejorative stereotypes-Ball Curve. Subsequently, the Bell Curve and analogous works are little more than racist psychology calculated to maintain the social and economic status quo by attempting to negatively influence the intelligence quotient of threatening populations.
