    Its kinds of ironic that South Africa has a population which has a majority of Black Africans, but because of their segregation laws in South Africa, Blacks aren't allowed to fully represent South Africa. It's not that the White Athletes have more talent, but that the Blacks aren't allowed to use the athletic facilities to practice with the team.

    Oh, I wrote that wrong. South Africa is nolonger a segregated country, but due to their segregation laws, Black athletes haven't caught up in the sports area

    I think it's weird looking to see S. Africa and many other African countries being represented only by white people. The idea isn't weird, but to look at it is.
