Do you believe genetics can cause one to have a particular accent in a given language?

Or are accents only related to post-birth personal development?

Are there ethnicities having anatomically distinct voice boxes, that have more difficulty in emulating specific accents?

I tend to believe so, but I haven't yet found reliable sources.
