    We are all africans as all modern humans ( in fact all hominids) originate from Africa. One race, just diffetent cultures.
    I mean I guess that is true but I said colour or ethnicity, those definitions still exist despite us knowing that we all originated from Africa.

    Do you think it's just a deeper form of an accent? Or do you think if an Indian or Black person was raised by white parents from a young age, they'd also sound white.

    I'm trying to see if there is any data on this, maybe it is just a subtle form of an accent and there is no inherent difference between races in terms of voice. Hmm
    Idk if your regular british indian/black person's accent is "deeper" as such.
    See i can't really describe what "sounding white" is like,even though it appears i can tell. Ditto for "sounding black/indian".
    Is there research being done on this though?If yes, then there would be data on it wouldn't it?

    I've not found anything more than very subjective blogposts or more entertainment styled videos rather than anything factual, I'm probably not looking hard enough.

    There is no guessing - it is true. Skin colour is really a superficial distinction.

    G-Eazy sounds really white to me. Can't you hear how similar he sounds to Macklemore.

    Tumblr girls was the first song I listened to by him, I couldn't really tell so I assumed black.

    Now listening back on the other tracks, yeah I suppose you're right, I can see the similarity between him and Macklemore.

    I've only heard of him on You don't own me, I mean he's distinct from Macklemore but still a bit similar.
