Here we go again… I thought we were done with this, but apparently articles are starting to pop up again in recent months declaring that Satoshi Kanazawa may have been right…even though we’ve had notable scientist point out everything that was wrong with his research.
I encountered a post about this subject…and once again we’re back to square one debates about Black women’s beauty or (according to some) lack thereof. If you want to read the post and the comments, you can here.
I don’t know what to say about this post.
I’m not sure why people love making posts like this…well actually I think I know why…
All I can say is, as an African-American woman, I respect people’s right to have their “preference,” for whatever reason, but please don’t misuse science to excuse your personal bias. Just let it be…
I don’t agree with this conclusion that Black women are objectively the least attractive…I know, to some people, my opinion doesn’t count because well..I am a Black woman, but I love the way we look. I love everything about us. Our features in all of their diversity, our natural Afro hair, our bodies, our stunning range of skin tones, I love the diversity of our cultures, the way we move naturally. i love it. I think there are beautiful women in all races, but I, as a Black woman, have no desire to look like them.
Even if people claim no one else sees the beauty in Black women, I do.
I basically think it makes people feel good and gets them off to keep going on and on about Black women and how “ugly,” we all supposedly are. It makes people feel good and I’ve accepted this. Someone’s gotta be the mule, I understand that, but I do not believe it at all.
I will never understand the point of posts such as this because even if it were true and it’s definitely not…what purpose would telling Black women that we’re “ugly” serve…shall we go home, sit in a corner, cry and wait to die or what…?? I just don’t see the point of any of these nonsense studies.
There are literally hundreds of millions of Black women on this earth…out of hundreds of millions…we’re all just coming out the womb with the ugly curse??? Even though all life originated from the womb of a Black woman and all physical traits ultimately can be traced back to her…but we’re all just ugly??? really??
Oh well, to each his own… but Black women aren’t going anywhere.
Finally, if the features of these Black women are what is considered to be “ugly,” then I wear that label with pride….
So, Black Women please enjoy these photos, appreciate your unique beauty…you can click if you want to enlarge.
and the way we can move:
Afterthought: At the end of the day, beauty goes beyond the superficial. It’s absolutely true that real beauty isn’t physical, but resides inside of you. I hope in the future that I won’t feel compelled to do anymore of these black women aren’t ugly posts because I feel like a broken record. I am just going to let people say what they want from now on and they can live in their own ignorance. Other things are becoming of more interest to me these days.
