Kristine Leahy: Serena Williams is the greatest tennis player ever because…   June 29, 2017

In response to John McEnroe, FS1’s Kristine Leahy on Thursday argued that Serena should be recognized as the greatest tennis player ever because, just because:

Because there has to be a way that women can be the greatest, and if you [base it on who would win], women can never be the ‘greatest’.


But by that logic:

And since this article has veered wildly off-topic anyway, interestingly enough, Wikipedia traces superior Jewish intelligence back to the Middle Ages:

Jews as a group inherit higher verbal and mathematical intelligence with somewhat lower spikes in spatial intelligence than other ethnic groups, on the basis of inherited diseases and the peculiar economic situation of Jews in the Middle Ages.

Wealthy Jews had several more children per family than poor Jews. So, genes for cognitive traits such as verbal and mathematical talent, which make a person successful in the few fields where Jews could work, were favored; genes for irrelevant traits, such as spatio-visual abilities, were supported by less selective pressure than in the general population.

Whereas Asian intelligence is attributed to (A) culture and (B) a 3 billion-person sample size from which aberrational outliers are more likely to emerge.

So 2 separate populations took 2 different paths to achieve similar socioeconomic advantage over Native Americans, Hispanic-looking Hispanics, and non-celebrity African-Americans.
