Dr. Williams is right on the mark with this. People have an odd prospective in the US on "equality". Everyone is below average on at least one thing and above average on at least one other thing.

No one race rules all of them so why blame the race that is the best at one particular thing of being racist because another race isn't the top there? Frankly, I'd be upset if any sport excluded someone who is better than others simply because of race ... even if it isn't MY race.
