(CBS) Olympic champion Michael Johnson believes descendants of West African slaves have a “superior athletic gene” that gives black American and Caribbean sprinters an advantage.
“Over the last few years, athletes of Afro-Caribbean and Afro-American descent have dominated athletics finals,” Johnson told The Daily Mail in the United Kingdom. “It’s a fact that hasn’t been discussed openly before. It’s a taboo subject in the States but it is what it is. Why shouldn’t we discuss it?”
Gold Medalist Michael Johnson believes the brutal lives of his ancestors, "has benefited descendants like me."
