    Music as an art came from Europeans. Europeans created things like counterpoint, written music sheets, music theory, etc. Music became organized and philosophical. European culture spread to the Americas and led to the creation of the many genres we see today such as country, rock, blues, etc. They all originate from Europe. Your question is interesting because music is a somewhat ambiguous term. What would be considered music? Monotonous banging on the drums during rituals like they had in Africa and pre-Columbus America? Or the art form of how to produce good music? 

    Blues wouldn't exist without the influence of Celtic music and non-black instruments such as the harmonica (German instrument) and guitar (Spanish instrument). Rock n roll is a fusion of blues and country music. Country music derived from Western which derived from Celtic music. Jazz wouldn't exist without the influence of classical music and the piano (Italian instrument) and saxophone (Belgian instrument). Rap, techno and house music wouldn't exist without the German electronic band Kraftwerk. 

    Black people don't even have a food culture. Soulfood is a hodgepodge of Native American and European food. BBQ sauce was invented by English, French and German Americans. Gumbo is cajun. Cornbread is Native American. Chicken fried steak is Austrian. Pancakes are Greek. Fried chicken originated from Scotland. Waffles originated from Belgium. Peanut butter was invented by the Incas. Potato chips were invented by a white Englishman named William Kitchiner.

    Basketball 🏀 and football 🏈 were invented by white people (James Naismith and Walter Camp).

    Black people are not even the original Africans. Most mammals have light skin that is covered by fur, and biologists believe that early human ancestors started out this way also. Dark skin probably evolved after humans lost their body fur, because the naked skin was vulnerable to the strong UV radiation as explained in the Out of Africa hypothesis. Humanity literally wouldn't exist without white skinned Africans. Black people pathetically try to claim the first African (Lucy) was a black woman when she was actually Australopithecus Afarensis. A species that existed LONG before black people or any homo-sapiens existed. It's easier for blacks to believe in lies than to actually do research. Pathetic.

    "British" is NOT "English!"  British includes the Scots, Welsh, Irish, and more.  English is a subset of this.  The biggest subset, of course, but don't confuse the two!

    In fact, Indian food is now more common in the UK than fish 'n chips.  The Royals are more British than English.  You might want to check out English Heritage for things English.

    There are hundreds of English cultures just as there are hundreds of dialects of English in Britain. You cannot talk of one English culture, it doesn't exist.

    lol,

    The British Royal family's crest is written in French. French is a Roman Latin based language. And most of Shakespeare's plays were about Romans too.
