Not much new information in this article. It's been known and proven for a century that blacks score much lower on IQ and knowledge tests than whites. The only avenue to discredit these results is to accuse the tests of being racist. How lame is that? The article goes on to state that black athletes are recruited much more heavily than whites, especially in basketball and football. That would be declared racist if the colors were reversed.
Even before race was an issue colleges were recruiting athletes and relaxing their academic standards to get better players. Vanderbilt University wouldn't let any ruffian redneck athletes enroll in their college but did affiliate with a nearby smaller college with a good football team on a combined college team. The campuses were kept separate so that Vanderbilt students weren't frightened by lower class, uncouth, unwashed atheletes from a farm background.

these figures are ridiculous, some colleges are taking short bus material for their sports teams, then these low life rape pillage cheat(with help from academic staff) their ay through collegs, and missdemenour is swept under the carpet and female ho accuses a "jock" of rape or sexual abuse is shunned and told to shut the f up or get out.
The system is pathetic,
