    Default Who is the biggest race?

    People often say Africans are the tallest and most powerfully built, but the reality is Dutch people are the tallest in the world. It goes without saying that East Asians are the smallest, but who are the world's biggest people - Africans or Europeans?

    There is quite a difference in "race" and "people"...

    Tallest people are the Montenegrins, I think. The largest people by build would probably be the Samoans.

    Then I go up, and look at myself in profile and from the front and in all angles, in all my mirrors that I have mounted up everywhere, and realise my Mongolian heritage and how the Swedes view me. Sometimes I cannot see the difference between myself and a Mongol, if the environment is cloudy.

    Actually Europeans are generally better throwers, weight lifters and rowers, so to say blacks are more powerfully built is debatable.

    Who are the world's biggest people? Are you a fucking moron? Hold on... What is the world populations' favourite colour? Which nationality has the smallest mortgages? What race has the slowest heartrate whilst swimming underwater playing Monopoly?

    I don't think we're "allowed" to insult people on here - but what the hell. You are a fucking retard.

    A comparison between "Africans" and dutch people. So we have here tall slender horners, short skinny magrebians, pigmeys, muscular west africans... in the same group while we separate dutch people from other totally alien ethnicities like danes, germans..
    Very good

    Yeah, and he's wrong...no fucking way are Dutch taller than the Dinka, Nuer, Shilluk or the Tutsi. The Dinka are giants, even their women average over 6 feet

    But how popular is (spear) throwing, (Olympic) Weightlifting and rowing in Africa or among Aframs?

    For example Sweden was a extremely good country in wrestling at the Olympics between 1908-1956, that time they claimed more gold medals than the total amount of medals they have claimed 1960-2008.

    Did Swedes suddenly become bad wrestlers? My bet is that the sport had to surrender when other sports grew in popularity - for example Asian martial arts and team sports. The amount of really good wrestlers shrank and have the last years only contained one or two wrestlers, while pre-60 it contained up to five wrestlers who competed in both the freestyle and Greco-Roman.

    Ronnie Coleman and Johnnie Jackson are examples of Afram bodybuilders who succeeded well in Powerlifting competition (With Jackson averaging over 1000 kg total in PL).

    Olympic Weightlifting is only a respected sport in Eastern Euro, Iran, China and the Caucasus. In USA it is a extremely small sport both media wise and competition wise.

    Where I live when I say I train Olympic Weightlifting they instantly think of bodybuilding...I mean common, that is like thinking of baseball when someone say football, both may send a ball away several feet but they are not the same.

    They're known for being 'thick/heavy set' in stature. Partially due of their rich/fatty diets, but it also in their genes. But I still wouldn't call em the 'biggest nation'... though obesity does seem to be an issue in their community.
