R.O.P I think it's the underjaw. Bill Cowher has a bulldog/appish jaw. Doesn't have to be muscular.

Just like jersey girls, and the like have that horrible small jaw an look like turkeys (Karen O from the yeah yeah yeahs).

Eww.

Asians were called monkeys just as much as blacks, but in this case I think it's the way they look.

/would like to be an asian monkey, they are super smart and wily.

oh BULL shiat on her weighing 143. My sister is 5'10 and just under 130 (i know I've seen her get on a scale). She looks close to anorexic. You can count every rib when she bends over and her upper thighs are smaller then her knees. Even her hands and neck have that very bony fleshless look. She wears a size 3 in pants, but they are baggy on her, really she is more like a size 0 or 1 with a long leg. She wears a size XS in tops. You're telling me 15 pounds over that and you get Serena? No way in hell. Just no way in hell. You can put a lot more weight on for evey inch of height on a tall woman then you'd think. Serena has got to be 190 if she's a pound, probably more like 200.
 
2007-01-27 10:26:55 PM  
So what if shes a man? I though women were the fairer sex and anything a man can do a woman can do better...
 
2007-01-27 10:35:14 PM  
She probably weighs more than 143 right now. She actually wasn't totally in shape for the Aussie.

I'm still glad she won. Probably the best tennis player of our time.

However, I'll say it again, I think Serena is hot. She is way hotter than Sharapova...it's not even close IMHO.

Homercles_cares_not_for_beans, that's Serena before steroids. Look how tiny her ass and arms are in comparison to the new photos. I don't care who is "hotter". I just feel that Serena is using steroids.

I know too much about her weight because she lost a bunch due to pneumonia. She had to go to the hospital and everything, and then afterwards she (being the tard she is) was all lolzorz look I'm skinny as model and even though it just landed me in the hospital I think I'll keep on not eatingz!
 
2007-01-28 12:15:58 AM  
R.O.P.

You may be right and I'm not denying it. I wasn't addressing whether she is using steroids or not, although I would also say that her body changes depending on whether she is in "playing form" (e.g. she drops muscle mass when she does SI photoshoots). So that photo isn't necessarily "pre-steroids."
 
2007-01-28 12:19:09 AM  
Continued

Also, my comment about her weight was derived from something I heard while during one of Serena's matches. Someone (a female commentator) mentioned that she hadn't totally lost of the fat she had put on the previous year. Maybe that commentator was trying to address her size without using the "S" word.

Yeah Tiger looks totally Thai. He also looks totally black. I just don't agree with the racial construction that if your mom is white and your dad is black, then you are half-black. I don't know what the term really means, because it really does not get at the heart of what people mean or feel when they talk about 'that black guy'.

The funny thing is that most black people are really just a shade of brown. White people with a dark tan have darker skin. Also, there are many different varieties of black, some of which do very well and others which don't. Indian blacks, for instance, come from a culture that values education highly, while African blacks come from a culture that's ruled by whoever has the most guns and money. It's a bit unfair to lump them all together, just like it's overgeneralizing to call the million different varieties of white people Caucasian. Personally, I ignore skin color completely - what I care about is whether you're well-educated and have reasonably good diction. If that leaves out 90% of blacks, then that's your problem, not mine.

But when you apply for a job, you will be 100% black, trust me. This may be slightly less true than it was 30-40 years ago, but it is still true. So I guess it bothers me a little that when we start talking about the achievements of black, the successful guys are all of a sudden not 100% black, they are 'half' black. It is a subtext that suggests that their achievement is aided by the fact that they are part white, or asian or whatever. Maybe I am being oversensitive, but I don't think so.

An equally well-educated black will be picked first almost all of the time for a good job, given today's climate of "racial diversity". Conversely, people may be a bit leery of hiring blacks for unskilled labor, given the massively higher incidence of crime and unreliability among blacks (as well as lawsuits...) So skin color is a big issue. But a truly motivated black who is willing to work hard at whatever job he gets will generally promote easily, it's the whiners and slackers who will be stuck in crap jobs their entire lives.

As far as half black vs all the way black goes, I do think that half black kids have somewhat of a cultural advantage at least, in that the white parent generally comes from a background that values education more. There is no genetic advantage, but obviously if your parents are pushing you to work hard in school, you're going to get a better education and do better in the business world as a result. To that extent, having a white parent can be very good for you.

I should probably mention here BTW that some 2/3 of blacks are middle class or rich, and it's the leeches and criminals in the bottom third that give all the other blacks a bad name. Blacks receive 32% of all welfare while comprising 13% of the population, and are 8.2x more likely to be criminals than whites, but there are many, many successful blacks too, and if blacks would just get over their feelings of entitlement and work hard on education, they could all do well. I bear the skin color no ill will, it's the criminals and vagabonds I hate - of any skin color.

j0ndas- There are some quality genetics at work here. Africans were bred for strength and size for hundreds of years as slaves. Its not just a coincidence that black athletes dominate in sports whereas they represent a relatively small ammount of the population. Now instead of pulling plowshares they are plowing through offensive lines.

Go bears.

kraut7: It's not the least bit racist if they're comparing her features to those of a gorilla. If they're calling her a gorilla because she's black that's a different story.

I will agree with you when I see an over muscled white person referred to as a "gorilla".


Uh, I see muscular jock dudes called "gorillas" all the farking time.
Bad example on your part.

That said, given the history of racist claims in the west, many revolving around black people being less evolved and closer to apes, I think that it would be smart to not call black people gorillas even if they do look like gorillas. It would just be smart not to. That doesn't mean I think anyone saying it is racist, but it isn't a smart hting to say.

While I'm not positive, I really don't think that selective breeding could work so effectively in such a short amount of time. Blacks were only slaves for a handful of generations in the US, not enough to radically change their physcial make-up.

"Blacks were only slaves for a handful of generations in the US, not enough to radically change their physcial make-up."

The change would not need to be radical. A modest change applied to a population as big as they have become would mean the upper end performers would have "an edge".

You can make some pretty big changes in just a few generations of animal. Humans have changed different types of cats and dogs enough to notice in just a few short generations several times. I could see it working the same for people.

You also have to consider that most of the weak slaves died on the boats over here from what we are taught of history. So not only do you have the weak slaves here having a problem being able to reproduce .... you have a boatride that wipes out many of the weakest links before you even START your genetic breeding projects.
 
2007-01-28 08:10:38 AM  
While some of it may be genetics that go back to ancestry (not talkin grandma here), a lot of it is what type of lifestyles are lived.

Why are Jews dominant in the diamond merchant and Law Fields? Why are Arabs and certain Asians dominant in the retail fields? It is about what people focus time an deffort on, not necessarily what they are born with. I doubt several hundred years of selective breeding would result in dramatic physicl changes anyway. Generally speaking, black kids put more effort at sports than white kids, point blank.

The only black person (famous) that can be compared to a gorilla w/o being racist is Patrick Ewing, imo

R.O.P.: I will agree with you when I see an over muscled white person referred to as a "gorilla".

A big fella who started working at my old univ cafeteria was referred to uncharitably as "Gorilla Man" when the person who made the anonymous complaint mistook "Gerald"'s training at the cash box for him having been hired as a bouncer.

Gerald is white. Very nice guy. One of the gentlest dispositions in a person I've ever seen. Totally docile, if the term can really be used to describe a human. Arms like a gorilla, though. That guy was huuuuge.

That incident was actually a major inspiration for a bouncer-algorithm (named "Gerald", of course) I wrote and used to create a safe-zone in a PK-allowed MUD I used to code for a long time ago.

Seriously, R.O.P. Nobody's race baiting. Not seriously, anyway. They might arguably be baiting you, however.

Williams isn't hot.

2007-01-28 02:04:58 PM  
I don't think Serena's on the juice. Look at it this way: she and Venus have ALWAYS been muscular. They probably are naturally muscular (be honest: in shape black women, even black girls (e.g. high schoolers) tend to have lower body fat percentages and more muscle tone than in shape white women and girls) to begin with, and training from birth to be strong tennis players helped them along.

Serena's coming off of an ankle injury, right? So, if your ankle is injured and you can't do as much of the aggressive side-to-side movement required in tennis, what are you going to do? Bulk up, start lifting weights, get ridiculously strong so that if you do get to the ball, you can return it so hard that there's no chance of a return shot.

Not all women can bulk up like that, but not all men can either. There ARE women, however, who, if they subject themselves to a strict weight-lifting regimine, will get obscenely muscular. The Williams sisters are an example of that. The reason you don't see a whole lot of women with that body type is because, primarily, you can be in shape without looking like that, and it's not considered "attractive" to mainstream society. God forbid you're labeled a lesbian or a man.

If Serena were on 'roids not only would she have been found out, by now, but the tits wouldn't be in effect, like they are. Get real.

On to the French Open!
 
2007-01-28 06:34:55 PM  
On the gorilla comment. Have you farkers ever heard Serena grunt when hitting? Now flick on animal planet and wait for the primate show to come on. Or go to the zoo and hang out by the gorilla cages. Wait for grunting. Notice the uncanny similiarites in the noise. Now remember many large weight lifting guys are called gorillas. I don't see much racist about it.

You're black? Because last I checked, you had a nerdy white best friend, you enjoyed Neil Diamond and you damned sure act like a black guy, and these, my friend, are all characteristics of white guys. Please understand I am a huge supporter of the NAACP, and if you don't know what that stands for it is the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Quite frankly, I always thought they should change the 'Colored People' to 'African-Americans,' but then, of course, it wouldn't be the NAACP. It would be the N Quad A or NAAAA. And I know this probably sounds like a digression, but it actually brings me back to my original point: Do I think you're black? Nnnaaaaahhhhh.

er....no.

It is ridiculously EASY to get away with steroid use when there is no formal testing in your sport year round.

She could easily have used gear to gain some muscle leading up to the tourney and stopped using just in time to clear any tests. And she would have retained a large amount of the muscle she gained.

Yes, the Williams sisters ARE genetically gifted. But radical changes in ones physique in an ALREADY top tier athlete point in the direction of doping.
