Ever notice how the way that someone is raised effects the kind of person that they become? Rednecks are raised in the country, high maintenance girls are raised in highly urban/high class suburban areas and rappers are raised in an all black neighborhood usually. But what if it were to get switched up? For instance, would a black person raised by an all white family adopt the speech habits and interests of a typical white person these days? Or is the same true reversed?
Eminem, the popular white rapper grew up in Detroit, a state who's population is 82% black. How do you think growing up around other black males with a popular interest effected his interest in rap music? It is a widely shared opinion that black males typically express an interest in rap after all. He even admits to growing up in a community where rap battles often took place. If he had been raised by a loving, wealthy family in a high end, mostly white neighborhood, would he have turned out any differently?
What if the environment doesn't effect a child's personality's growth at all though? What if it's decided by genetics instead? What if it is decided that a musician is going to be a musician before he even comes out of the womb? But then again maybe the kind of person that you become depends upon both
the manner of growth/surroundings AND
Take a look at the environment and manner in which you yourself were raised and think about how it's effected you as a person. How has it changed you? And would you have turned out being a different kind of person in any aspect had you been raised in a completely different way?
