    Why do they, generally speaking, have much better voices when compared to their white/asian counterparts?

    Whitney Houston, Tracy Chapman, Aretha Franklin... could go on for a while.

    (and to any fool who decides to refer to the 'slave trade' and breeding as a possible cause of this 'talent'... **** off.)

    Maybe you just prefer the type of singing that they stereotype themselves to?

    That'd mean that I only like a certain genre of music.

    Or that the vocalists I mentioned all sing the same sort've stuff.

    Which they don't.

    It all has the same pointless "oo oo"'s that all singers put into their voices. It's mildly annoying.

    Why would people refer to the slave trade? :confused:

    I don't think you can generalise like that. Celine Dion is very articulate, Barbara Streisand and a lot more.
