Two years ago, a sports announcer in the United States lost his job because
he enlarged indiscreetly -- that is, before a television audience -- upon his
views about 'racial' differences. Asked why there are so few black coaches in
basketball, Jimmy 'the Greek' Snyder remarked that black athletes already
hold an advantage as basketball players because they have longer thighs than
white athletes, their ancestors having been deliberately bred that way during
slavery.
