Do you have to have a certain voice to sing Rock?

My mom tells me my voice is more R&B and I sound just like Chris brown.. everyone tells me this but the problem is I want to sing rock.. Like I try to sing the basic part but then they do the "Rough" part tone of their voice. Btw I'm medium brown so if skin color has anything to do with it tell me because like.. I mainly see white people do this stuff and no black people so I don't know if I'm wasting my time. I'm not racist at all I just want to know if that's the case.

    it's true that a person's race usually determines their voice type, but that doesn't mean you can't do rock. there are all kinds of music hybrids out there, maybe a rock/R&B type music is what you need. if you can't find any examples, experiment. i'm sure you'll find something.
