Its quite simple. The Libertarians disagree of course. According to them market forces are responsible. Blacks know they can make more money running the 100m than the Marathon and through hard work and night classes have achieved the sub 10 second 100 meter dash - its all about economics.
With one disagreement. If you changed the "W. African" to "Kenyan" and flipped the gradient on the x-axis so that the origin was "marathon," then the line would have a similar shape. Even though Sailer is an ex-libertarian who claims Friedman and Sowell as his favorites, he regularly laments all of the libertarian fantasies that voucher programs are going to bridge the racial gap.
