Blacks & Sweet Pototoes

Does DHEA & or sweet pototoes improve ones athletic performance & building muscle & being lean? Is that why the blacks are leaner & better athletes?? They do eat alot of sweet pototoes, like sweet pies & the like. Also, I’m not racist just curious & thinking about it.

Wtf?! This is a joke, right?

Most of my black friends don’t like sweet potatoes. Stupid question, if it’s serious. Sweet potatoes ARE a good source of complex carbs from time to time.

Wait, don’t most white people like mayonnaise? Does that mean if I eat more mayo I can then run for president and actually get elected?

See, Tampa, there ARE stupid questions.

X, it’s not the mayo that does it, it’s the white bread.

Prof - PM your address and I’ll hook you up with a couple of tubs of our white gold!
Pres. X in 2008!

Does this mean that if my kids are mixed raced they will like mayo on their sweet potatoes?

The down side of this would of course be that you will lose all your muscle, your nose along with the rest of your face will mostly fall off, and you will begin to enjoy sleeping with little boys, but you will be able to moonwalk!

Not to get even further off topic here(not that it matters), but I think there would be a black president long before a huge musclcular white guy. I mean, most people think we are dumb as shit and on steroids, like hell we can run a country! Right?!?!

Damn bro whats next? Are you gonnna draw a link between Lebron James’s vertical leap and his consumption of fried chicken and watermelon. Seriously this had got to be one of most stuipd, inane, and mind-numbing comments i have evr seen on this website. Oh hey and if you wanna be BRuce Lee just eat a lot of rice and Kung Pao Chicken you stupid mongoloid fuck.

I have noticed that when I eat watermelons and fried chicken, I can lift televisions a lot easier.

How odd. I find that after I play hockey, my vertical leap in basketball decreases by 2 feet.

My father used to feed us collard greens and hamhocks on a regular basis.Growing up I excelled in wrestling and track.Especially the 100m,400m, and the long jump. Nevermind the years of training, it must have been the soul food.
Either that or the beer. I am about as Irish as the grass is green.
O.K. who wants to fight!(can’t help it, I’m a mick.)

A simple “no” would probably have sufficed.

Everyone gets so riled up whenever race is a topic.

Granted, this question was pretty off-the-mark, but if one were to grant him the benefit of the doubt he could actually be trying to probe a causal relationship between diet and athletic performance.

Again, not a great question, and very naive in terms of nutritional knowledge, as well as many simplistic assumptions, but no need for name calling – especially with racist names.

I never got the whole white people loving mayo thing…I rarely use it. I mean, being an Italian, pretty much anything that mayo would be used for I use EV Olive Oil. Am I missing something here?

Sheeeit, now I know why I was good at the 100m in high school. Its because of all that fuckin watermelon turnin me into a black person.

(Sarcasm)
Clearly it’s black people’s outright monopoly on this food that allow them to outperform the rest of us…if one day I can get my hands on a sweet potato I’ll surely be an Olympic track hopeful.
(end Sarcasm)

I’m white. I love hot sauce. The hotter the better. Draw your own conclusions. End of pointless post.

It would seem that almost no one took this post seriously. Besides, BB…I would have thought you could have pulled out at least 3 references from your ass to back this up.

You have to remember to take off the ice skates.


Guys, awhile back I posted the appropriate response to these types of questions. Since it obviously didn’t take, I’ll post it again. Be sure to save it for future use.
