I remember when this book came out-I read some reviews but haven't read the book.

Taboo: Why Black Athletes Dominate Sports and Why We're Afraid to Talk About It, Jon Entine
Here's a review/synopsis:
http://www.jonentine.com/reviews/fort_wayne_reply.htm

And for your counterpoint,
'Joseph Graves, Jr. is a professor of evolutionary biology at Embry-Riddle University, and author of The Emperor's New Clothes: Biological Theories of Race at the Millennium'

http://www.pbs.org/race/000_About/00...ound-01-06.htm

Graves goes into a little more depth than the synopsis. Both sides have some good points. fwiw, I know which one I believe to be (more) true.
