Yes, in general, being black makes you more likely to know how to appeal to black people and more likely to appeal to black people.

Beamer:

"So you see, folks, your skin color defines you. It determines your culture, your tastes, your interests, and your ability to communicate and empathize. No white person could ever understand a black person's concerns. No black person could ever truly be the same as a white person."

Reading your mental gymnastics is like watching a confused medium channel a Klan member. It's not just stupid, it borders on evil.

Either we are individuals, or we aren't. Either our differences are due (partly or wholly) to our race, or they aren't. If race is just the color of our skin, then culture and social influences explain our differences, and, consequentially, we can ALL understand each other, because our differences are the product of experience, not kind. That's where I stand.

Your statements above would be agreed with by any racial supremacist out there. It posits that racial divisions are uncrossable and unbridgeable, because they are the product of race itself. Otherwise color wouldn't matter, just lived experience. That's a pernicious idea, and one you should not be comfortable holding...
