Why Aren’T There Black Competitors In The Crossfit Competitions?

It’s like in my mind, they say the most diverse people in society are also the most alike,” says Diggs, a professor at Northwestern University. “Despite all their differences and disadvantages, they look to commonalities and find them in themselves.”

She points out that this is one reason why diversity has become such an important part of many institutions across the country. The Obama administration has focused on increasing racial diversity at universities by offering more scholarships for minority students. For example, the University of California-Berkeley recently began giving minority undergraduate applicants extra consideration when applying to be financial aid officers or work in career services. And last year Harvard announced it would increase its number of black and Latino professors from 28 percent to 33 percent by 2017—which it said would comprise 23 new hires but remain below its goal of 34 percent.

Some people think that if Crossfit was cross-training sports then everyone would be doing it and there wouldn’t even need judges. Some people worry about judging being too subjective without an objective standard from which they should measure performance at competitions. In other words how does someone determine if anything else should come before your ability to perform your 1 rep max before another person attempts their 1 rep max? For example are men performing chest day ahead of women due purely based on numbers rather than training philosophy? On the other hand does anyone really care what chest day looks like compared with back or legs? Anyone remember when they were lifting weights 12 years ago…it looked very different! Come on now they
