I'm asking do you think certain people (not races) are genetically made to gravitate to a certain style of music? I think yes for the most part, but how they are introduced to it probably has a lot of effects.

I don't think many backs like rap because of the sound, but because its a black made and black produced music, that talks about black problems, so they relate.

My mom told me she liked COF when we listened to it on the way to school, I shat bricks.

So, maybe some..

Black people listen to rap because they're expected to. Kinda sad too. They're so musically talented, but they don't put that talent to good use...

Black people dont all listen to rap. I know plenty of blakc kids who only listen to indie stuff and some who only listen to classic rock/progressive/psychedelic. And if that's true then why dont black people listen to blues, jazz, soul etc. I mean real soul too, not fucking Beyonce or whatever.

I say it's a combination of what you listened to growing up, what youre friends listened to, and the music that was around and popular while you were a teenager as well. I grew up listening to classic rock etc., and a lot of my friends listened to what's considered underground hip hop and like early hardcore and punk as well as classic/psychedelic rock. Then there was the whole indie scene going on and I loved seeing bands play live, so I would go see lots of no name bands and shit. Like, I saw the Strokes when I was 12, before Is This It, and I saw The Bravery when I was 14 or 15, and I liked Pixies and Radiohead and shit, so that's how my taste in music formed. I started listening to blues when I started playing the guitar, and my dad gave me some of his old blues stuff, and i started listening to jazz through hip hop really.

it's just environment and how you are bought up. If black kids are grown up basically told you are supposed to listen to rap, they are going to do it. most white kids fathers listen to classic rock or something of the sort, and they are brought up listening to that. i don't think it is as force fed as rap is for black kids though. 90% of black kids in my school classify any type of rock as crazy white boy shit. not trying to be racist at all, but I honestly think the majority of black kids in my school try to fit into some kind of premade mold or stereotype of listening to rap, playing basketball or football, and trying to act like a hardass all the time, just because they are brought up into thinking thats what they are supposed to be. for example, there is this one black kid in one my classes. when he around regular kids he acts normal and chill. when he is around the ghettoer black kids, he starts saying NIGGA NIGGA NIGGA every 3 seconds, and acts ghettoer, to try to act more stereotypical black.

By me writing stereotypical black, I'm racist? There is a such thing as stereotypical american black culture, as I put in my post, it's not being racist, just stating fact.

Not even to mention, I sort of remember a special someone (not saying any names) that argued that the Holocaust never happened in a certain thread, but lets not even get into that.

No it wasn't asshole, 6 million of us died.

And I don't think we're genetically predisposed to like certain types of music. We're influenced by our environment somewhat, and idk maybe it depends on your personality a little. That's what I think anyway.

I believe only around 1.5 million may have died, and that it was a mix of Jews/Pol's etc. the Russians numbers changed over the years, so it was hard to account for the actual number.

Maybe you should look into "Holocaust Revisioning" and see for yourself.

Um, the Germans kept meticulous records, and there were a bit under 6 million Jews that were killed. They actually listed each person and why they were taken away, so there isnt much room for error in that number. 10 million Jews were killed under Stalin's rule in Russia too. Anyway, Im not Jewish so I dont really care if you dont like Jews, but it's a historical fact.

Many Russians (Non Jewish/Jewish) were killed by Stalin during WW2.

I always write about the "Russian Holocaust" during out Holocaust Reports.

Like I will say, those that truly died.. Im sorry for their families, those that fake it.. Keep their big noses out of it.

I didnt say they weren't, I was just saying that more were killed in Russia than by the Germans. Dont put words in my mouth. Also, the Holocaust is the name that was given to the Nazi genocide. Holocaust is not a noun that describes any genocide, it is a proper noun and it is the name of a specific incident. Also, how do you fake death? Yuh, tool.

People act and talk differently depending on who's around them. Being half mexican i talk differently to my mexican gang banger "friends" because they normally wouldnt understand the vernacular i predominantly use in intelligent conversation. So i can see where he's coming from.

Like i said, being that the Nazi's kept such excellent records it is pretty easy to simply count the names that have 'Jew,' or whatever it was, written next to them. It's pretty hard to miscalculate that, especially when it's been done hundreds of times.

Well, just a thought: genes determine what sounds are pleasant to one person as opposed to another, kinda like taste buds work i guess. So that might be applied to music. However, as somebody grows more musically intelligent, they might start to overlook certain music.

But environment does determine what a person will actually listen to, and from listening to something you can at least grow accustomed to it and learn to like it.

And it's a bad idea to go against something as recent as the Holocaust without more to back you up than some crazy conspiracy theory. Maybe thats just me

growing up, most if not all the people i knew listened to either spanish music, hip hop/rap, or pop/dance music.


my favorite types of music are rock, metal, jazz, and punk


so no, i don't think we're genetically predisposed to certain types of music
