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!

My brother is a good cook and we're all white 0_o don't see the correlation. That's just a stereotype/a culture thing.
Report as
White is not a culture
Report as
Your descendents of Europeans
Report as
@rub-I NEVER said white was a culture.
Report as
idk about that
oh yea, but i know alot just because of my upbringing y'know
Report as
@chris-sorry, I know what you mean. My aunt is Italian, she's a very good cook. I guess I was just worried about people getting racey, if you know what I mean. I like your and that other person's point.

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.

Hmm....I've never thought of it that way....

Do you think that would hurt anybody the way I put that, shaylen?

I don't think so. It got me thinking. I think there are stereotypes, like Asians are stereotyped to be smart and studious ( a talent I think) and Italians are suppose to be cooks or whatever. Stereotypes aren't fair but are made because they seem to often be true, I think that race doesn't have a big connection with talent if we're looking in terms of wide range of talents-such as photography, art, ect. But I think you make an interesting point in terms of stereotype. I like that you backed up your opinion, if you don't, it sounds questionable and biased. I don't agree whole heartedly, but I like the way you put it. Hope I made sense, sleepy meds kicking in; tired.

I saw many Persian pilots that were top in the world before the 1979 revolution Iranian(persians) used to train in USA and they could control American Airplanes better than Americans and any other race! I wondered if there is a connection between ethnicity and talent! Thats why I asked this question!:)
Report as
I guess it's all a matter of opinion, Mehrdad. Most of mine comes from the music world and there's a definite connection in my mind. I've seen it too often and been absolutely amazed and awestruck too many times to realize it was anything else. But, again, strong as they are, those are my feelings. Great question, BTW.

How is that racist? Its a compliment. Actually the reason for it dates back to the time when Caucasians were chased by grizzly bears, they were chased by cheetahs and hyenas
Report as
@ak-because, if someone black isn't fast or doesn't fit into that stereotype, it's not fair and not all black people are fast. No insult to the person answering, I see what you're saying.
Report as
But its is a fact that all the record holders are Jamaicans! Im pretty sure we both didn't mean all black people can run fast.

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.
