I wouldn't never thought that background or skin color would affect one's ability to draw, sing, dance, act, be comical, be athletic, ect ect. No, it absolutely does not and whoever thinks so, is absurd!
I think it can. It's like I'm a white woman and I'd give anything to be in an African American choir. I'll explain. It's kinda like the movie, "White Men Can't Jump." Well, the choirs I've been in can't seem to move their feet or clap their hands either. I feel like the African Americans have a gift as far as singing and really getting into their spiritual music. I sing and I do spirituals as often as I can. I sang "Fix Me, Jesus" (out of Joyful Noise by Queen Latifah) at my church with no music & everyone loved it. But I practiced over & over with her. Also, since I'm a musician, I have seen Japanese children that are 4 & 5 years old that play as well if not better than any professional concert pianist I've ever seen or heard. I hope & pray I didn't say anything "politically incorrect." I'm actually in awe of the talents of other races compared to Caucasians. If I offended anyone, I apologize.
Absolutely, we have different physical makeups and thus are good at different things. For example... Have you ever seen a race between a black guy, a white guy, and an Asian? Take a guess at who would win. I don't think ethnicity effects intelligence particularly, but athletically it does play a part.
