You have no idea how tempting it is to say something racist.

I shall resist.

Do the white belts you are referring to look like this?

Some belts, such as this one, have kevlar fibers in them.

That is the idea. The tensile strength to weight ratio of kevlar is 5 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis.

I am not sure what fibers are used in general belts but my guess is they are not going to be as strong as kevlar.
