Default Do black people have a greater reproductive ability than white people?

This may seem unintelligable but I have heard this stated before by certain people and it seems logical considering 'whites' only make up 8% of the world's population and are on track to be be extinct in 200 years. Ah...

Anyway, on a 'biological' level I want to know whether this statement carries any weight. Also feel free to argue from many different perspectives, I'm sitting on the fence at the moment because I really don't know.

Only because on average they have less awareness of contraception.

I wouldn't worry about extinction, all humans will be extinct before then anyway.

According to many adult movies yes.

But seriously, I think that black people are physically most advanced.

On a biological level? Unlikely.

Probably what HumanNoMore said, but I'd call it "disregard" as opposed to "have less awareness of."

Fun fact: Black people make up half of all homeless people.

Yeah, because of their genetic history, they tend on average, to be very athletic.

Exceptions to everything of course, but hey.

I think this question may best be answered through the study of allele frequency that determines the amount of melanin someone has and the study of interracial coupling. If a light skinned and a dark skinned couple have a child, the presence of certain alleles from the dark skinned parent may make it more likely that the child will have darker skin than its light skinned parent.

If you'll notice, I said "on average".
