Can anyone get Down Syndrome?
I have only ever seen examples/pictures of caucasian people with Down Syndrome -- can "non-white" people get Down Syndrome?

I am not sure how to phrase this question without seeming racist, but I'm honestly just curious.

Usually you get it when you register to vote as a Democrat.

Good question. But I don't have the answer.

Yes because it's at birth and genetics have something to do with it and if a parent has the chromosone then you have a chance of getting it and the not racist part..."minority" would of covered that.

this may help.


U can't b serious
Yes...non-white people can get Downs

nothing racist about your question at all, dont worry about it

anyone can be born with DS

Down's syndrome is a genetic condition known as trisomy, where a person inherits an extra copy of one chromosome. People with Down's syndrome have three copies of chromosome 21 rather than two. This additional genetic material changes the finely tuned balance of the body and results in characteristic physical and intellectual features.

Down syndrome is a genetic disease cause when chromosomes do not split equally during meiosis. ! chromosome is missing. This can happen to any race.

A person is born with this genetic defect - chromosomes are at fault. . .one does not acquire this, or 'catch' it from others.

I think anyone can get Down Syndrome, I think its something of birth


Smom
There is nothing at all wrong with your question. As many others have said, a baby of any ethnicity can have Down syndrome. As the mom to a beautiful little boy with Down syndrome, I am active in the DS community and have seen people from all walks of life. Sadly though, some cultures still treat children with DS abominably and institutionalize them, which may be an explanation of why you may not see as many people in certain countries.
