why is it that this article is considered racist? He provides evidence to support his hypothesis, he does not single out the entire African American race, talking down to it as a whole. In fact, he gives reference to black males being more attractive on the whole, and to black women being less attractive possibly due to higher testosterone levels. It's a research article. racism has nothing to do with it. Grow up people. Not everything in this world is racist. gtfoh

I'm just talkin about the face department. How many black women you go for because of the face? Be real. They last in the face department. Like I said, they might have some dime faces out there, but overall compared to everyone else, nahhh. I done seen WAY too many tore up lookin broads wit dudes. I can tell they only lookin at one thing, and that ain't her face. lol

fu*king cornballs have been gassing ugly bi*ches for far too long thus watering down the ranks of real women. There used to be a distinction between bi*ches and women and it was stark. Look around you fam ignorant ugly ghetto hoodrats have been elevated to the same level as smart beautiful black women and the hoodrats are starting to think they are equal ohh hell naw

Name one current dark skinned model that gets love besides Bria Myles? I swear if I knew someone with great editing and photoshop skills, I would put up a secret study on these forums and pose the threads as a "smash or pass" or "attractive women" and monitor the replies. 9 times out of 10 the lighter model gets more praise then the darker skinned women. If someone with good photo editing that could make a dark skinned model light and vice versa, holla at me and we could do a more real study then this crap.

I'm with u on this. Ive ALWAYS wanted to do that. If u take the same girls that are considered attractive and darken or lighten their skin to see the difference in ratings. They did something kinda like this at my school where u take a picture of yourself then change your skin tone...but it failed horribly it just distorted the picture and didn't change anything.

U cannot be serious :lachen001:. So I guess the pseudo-science that said black people are inferior to white people because they are not human,lack intelligence and are incompetent is not because of racism? Its all bullsh*t and propaganda. The fact that he is even using the term "race"(which real science says doesn't exist and is only a social construct) makes this "experiment" less valid and even more laughable. This "study" is a perfect example of scientific techniques being used to justify his and others who think like him belief's in racial superiority.

I see where you comin from, but I don't think this is the case here. They put black males as more attractive than other races. Now if they had put both as less attractive, you got a point but they didn't.

damn....his career in research is done

but this exposes subconscious racism and self hatred tho....black features aren't promoted by the status quo and that effects everything


In the book Gladwell mentions the Implicit a.ssociation Test (IAT), where you can take a test and rate your subconscious preference to many different things or groupings of people. Gladwell himself spoke about his personal shock when he took the Race IAT because his results, time and time again, showed that he had a “strong automatic preference to white people over black people”. What makes this even more humorous, yet troubling to him, is Malcolm Gladwell is half black and half white; however his test results still showed he “preferred white people over black”.

The test really taps into the subconscious and if you take it honestly, you cannot fool it and hide your prejudice. There are many factors that impact on the results; your level and quality of interaction with black and white people, your upbringing, the way you have been socialized to think about black and white people, portrayal of black and white people in the media, just to name a few.

AN article carried recently in Psychology Today questioning the perceived unattractiveness of black women has reignited debates of racism and has fuelled international outrage.

The piece entitled Why are black women rated less attractive than other women, but black men are rated better looking than other men? has since been pulled from the magazine's website following its appearance on May 15 this year. But this has not stopped public criticism of the editors of Psychology Today or the author of the piece, Satoshi Kanazawa, a Japanese evolutionary psychologist.

[Hide Description] Sociologist Dr Orville Taylor says the bleaching phenomenon is not about people trying to become white, but about people establishing a pattern of beauty that they aspire towards. In this AP photo, from a story titled, Skin bleaching, a growing problem in Jamaica, Mikeisha Simpson poses for a portrait in Kingston. Simpson, 23, hopes to transform her dark complexion to a cafe-aulait- colour common among Jamaica’s elite and favoured by many men in her neighbourhood. She believes a fairer skin could be her ticket to a better life, so she spends her savings on blackmarket concoctions that promise to lighten her pigment.
[Restore Description]

Kanazawa concluded, based on a study in which several persons were interviewed, that black women were objectively less attractive than white, Asian and North American women, though they "subjectively consider themselves to be far more physically attractive than others".

"Black women are significantly less physically attractive than women of other races," said Kanazawa, who works at the London School of Economics.

"The only thing I can think of that might potentially explain the lower average level of physical attractiveness among black women is testosterone. Africans on average have higher levels of testosterone than other races," he explained.

The claim that blacks are unattractive, while offensive and backward, has not come as a surprise to at least two local academics who said that years of independence from slavery has not changed people's perception of blacks.

Neither does it surprise counsellor Carla Brookes, who said the way some black women behave, dress and act fuels a perception of "the fat, loud video model type with loose morals".

"You can't blame people sometimes for judging us the way they do," Brookes said. "We cuss, we f!ght, we're loud and we act like we're proud of it!"

Noted Sociologist Dr Orville Taylor said the "seasoning" blacks underwent during slavery has caused many to look at blacks in a negative light, despite our achievements since independence.

"I am not surprised by any type of survey or psychological research that points to negative self-imagery (especially) when you juxtapose that against the bleaching phenomenon which is not about people trying to become white, but about people establishing a pattern of beauty that they aspire towards," he said.

He explained that like a curry stain, the effects of slavery which saw many blacks humiliated and exploited under European rule cannot be reversed overnight.

"In the United States, it is perhaps a little bit worse, believe it or not, because at least in Jamaica, we managed to achieve something called national identity and status. Black Americans wear this kind of marker where they are called something else, they are called African Americans. Nobody walks around and talks about European Americans or Caucasian Americans," he pointed out.

Lecturer in the Department of Cultural Studies at the University of West Indies, Mona, Horace Williams, believes that while more blacks are now embracing their 'nappy' hair styling, signalling, "an impression of updated appreciation", there is still a strong indication of a lack of appreciation of self.

"Persons are marketed differently. They wear their hair in a sort of style that speaks to a mimicry of appreciation, but in fact and indeed, there is really no appreciation of self," he said.

"I really believe we haven't really gone anywhere different, it is just a matter of new marketing, but same old problem," Williams noted.

Although the black women in Kanazawa's study considered themselves beautiful, Dr Taylor has found that blacks in the Caribbean have perpetuated this general belief that something is wrong with how they look.

"It must be seen in the same context of the black hair phenomenon that we use even today. We make jokes that people's hair look like 'kiah' and we make jokes about people's hair looking like grains of [pepper] or scotch brite. We make those kinds of jokes and we still a.ssociate, and I suspect the psychological studies will show as well, we still a.ssociate black and ugly," he said.

"When a very, very dark woman with distinct African features is good looking, they tend to say in a normal way, even when people are not trying to be offensive, 'oh, she looks nice for a black girl' or 'she is a nice looking black girl'. It is almost never said that this is a nice looking brown girl."

While the study found black women to be unattractive, the same study concluded that black males were considered more attractive than Asian, white and North American men. This finding too does not come as much of a surprise to Dr Taylor who believes this belief is a subtext of colonial discourse where the wives of the white plantation owners or overseers sought out black men for s3xual satisfaction.

"They always show stories of the wife of the plantation owner or overseer bringing in the Mandingo through the back door or having s3x with the gardener," said Dr Taylor.

"The idea of a virile man was also part of the stereotype and that has always been engrained in our minds to incorporate a notion of this animal-looking thing, this strong black man, a little bit less than the human, but more than the animal, a stud. The word stud is not a flattering word, but we have embraced it," he said.

The fact that women are now embracing their natural hair more is a good indication for Dr Taylor that we are slowly accepting various aspects of our blackness, but he doesn't expect a full acceptance of our black features anytime soon.

"It took several hundred years to evolve in a negative way, so it's going to take a long time as well for that to change," he said.

Meanwhile, Williams also believes that it is going to take a while for people to truly accept black features as opposed to just using it as a "marketing strategy to mimic appreciation".

"The appreciation of black features, I am not sure that time has healed that," he said. "What has changed is the media marketing and a broader context in which multi-culturalism is fundamental to any type of institutional advancement, educational, work [and] otherwise."



Another article :





I'm black and I dont consider it racist, its basic research. Yet for some reason I'm disturbed by it. Its basically judging appearance based on social norms, in the rawest form.

For people who dont want to read too much: Theyre basically saying african woman appear to be less attractive because they have higher levels of testosterone. "What is attractive" is determined by people rating faces based on photos where you can merely see structure and not skin tone.

I want to know what yall think about this..
