Are you kidding me? Tell him to look in the history books. Most of the music he listens to wouldn't be around without certain black musicians.

How old are you? Why would you need opinions on something as stupid as this... he is obviously an idiot...

Would you be half asian by any chance? I am half asian and I get that all the time. Just ignore people like that. Don't let it get to you?
Be cool.

as long as you have hands/fingers, or in some cases feet, then you can play.

"Brownsound" from Sum 41 can't half play. You ever seen that Metallica tribute thing they did? He surprised the hell out of me with his soloing.

This dude sounds like a racist prick, why don't you stick it to him by shredding his face off or such other stick-it-in-his-face activities. We Indians may have a bad reputation as guitarists (search "India's fastest guitarist" on YouTube if you want) but we're probably a lot better than him

I wouldn't waste my time or dirty my hands on him. Not wishing it upon him but the gangsta's will take care of that. I know that I said some pretty stupid insensitive things when I was his age. Just pray for him and let him go on.
#20
even if you wanted to shred his ass out of spite, you would still be in a way, contributing to racism. as you would be defending your race as a whole, rather than you as a person.
#22
well, i think race does matter to some degree. look at asians! THEY ARE GOOD AT EVERYTHING!! just youtube that kid who taps on two guitars and plays like the chocobo song from final fantasy and stuff!!

in all seriousness, no, it all depends on your dedication

i like how you all jump on the fact it was a white guy that said it, from the initial post.

how do you knwo it wasnt a black guy?

Sorry i forgot, only white people are racist

eitherway, at the end of the day you're a penis. all guitarists are. we're united in one race, and that is the race of the mighty egotistical asshole. how good you are depends on how much you practice, not wether you're brown like chef;s chocolate salty balls, or white like a cockatoo in a horror film.

Well, I kinda take offense to the

"dude was a moron get used to it the whole middle of the US must be to re-elect Bush"

statement. I'm from Missouri, and I can't stand President Busch. (uh oh, a typo?)

Seriously, ignore his ass. If I was there I would have gladly beat his ass down, I'm prejudice against prejudice people (does that make me a hypocrite?). There's nothing worse than people that think less of people just because of where their family came from.

Now, stereotypes are funny, when used in a humorous fashion, such as red star's statement. Sometimes stereotypes are very true. For example, Hawaiians (of which, I am one) loving Spam. I haven't tried it, but I know my dad loves the stuff, as does his side of the family. Stereotype proven?

Seriously though, ignore him, people like that don't really ever amount to anything, at least, nothing to be proud of.

Look at it this way, come back to your home town in 20 years, and find out where he lives. It shouldn't be hard, if he's the kind of person I think he is, he'll probably be sitting in a double-wide, with 12 kids, a morbidly obese wife, and two Trans Am Superbirds, one on blocks for parts. Now, go knock on his door and give him $10,000 (keep in mind that from practicing for four hours a day you managed to get a great studio guitarist job, and get into a huge band that tours internationally, so it shouldn't be much money), then just smile and walk away.

race does matter. Only humans can play and perhaps monkeys


Humans are actually a species, not a race. Sorry, just had to correct that; It's one of my pet peeves. That and people who spell et cetera as excetera.

And finally something relevant to the topic at hand: Race has no impact on your skill with the guitar. For that matter, neither does potential or talent. All that REALLY matters is your dedication and a desire to express your feelings.
Studies show that 89.27% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
