A book Taboo by Jon Entine, published in the year 2000 covers the topic of relation between the race of a player and his athletic success, for all the players of all the countries. The book stays controversial as Entine takes the stand that there are biological differences between different races in the world, and these differences account for the differential performance of an individual in the field of sports as well thus leading to better or poor performances of an individual against the others. But the American is not willing to accept these statements of Entine as there has been a history of racism in United States of America and accepting this will just add extra evidence to it, which is not in favor of its global image. He also denies the fact that athletic and individual ability are not related to each other.Entine in his work has formed some deductions based on the prevailing theories in the society, like West Africans are born sprinters and have better stamina and specialized musculature for this sport, similarly he says that East Africans are well suited for long jump. Although none of these claims has ever became fact, as this case was ever proved. Many of the West Africans are good in long jump too and poor in sprinting, similarly many of the East Africans are good in sprinting and poor in long jump. These claims do not stand because there are not many West Africans living in America, although they can think themselves as West Africans as most of the slaves who came to America were from West Africa.
