I feel like this thread is only white people talking about nonwhites. When I went to high school it was mixed 60 percent black and the rest white with some immigrants like latinos from Argentina and Mexico. I remember the whites were really dumb, like they couldn't see three dimensional line drawings of a cube. Not only that but they seemed proud if of their ineptness. On the other hand, if I was drawing in a class, because I have good hand Eye coordination, if a black saw my drawing, they liked it. So my understanding is that nonwhites have greater appreciation of art in many cases, whereas normal whites only think about money. For instance in Mexico you can pay taxes with artwork to stay out of prison. Obviously most of the modern music from brazil and USA and Americas has strong Afrocentric motivation.
