The Beauty of Black Women
Earlier this month, the popular magazine Psychology Today published an article by evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa titled “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?" that was met, expectedly, with mass outrage.
The article used data based on another study to make several claims such as "black women are objectively less physically attractive than other women" yet "subjectively consider themselves to be far more physically attractive than others."
First, with a last name like Kanazawa - close to being Afrocentric - you'd think his perspective would not be so Eurocentric.
Second, here we go again with this silly racist ish that is masqueraded as objective science. Remember the Bell Curve that professed we were stupid?
If folks have to devote so much time and resources to promote their superiority, I think it's an attempt to over-compensate for their shortcomings.
To be clear - and continue another racial stereotype - perhaps my Japanese brother is struggling with a very small er ahem ego (thank you Kanye West).
Jokes aside, from Kenya to Trinidad to Brazil to USA, black women are the most beautiful, graceful, dynamic and intelligent females to walk the earth.
Don't hate because they got a self-confident swagger!
