Blacks are not attractive?

This is a subject that was been discussed on yahoo.Hope you will enjoy it.

It is often said that the victors are the ones who write history. Well what applies to history also applies to our collective sense of what is beautiful or fashionable. The refined noses, slender firm bodies, and ivory skin that you see ubiquitously appearing on all fashion magazines, that informs the population as to what is aesthetically pleasing, are images that are created by the rich and elite.
These rich and elite are at the stations in life that they are in because their white ancestry was successful over foreign nonwhite populations; both economically and militarily. Hence, they get to define the standards of what is acceptable and what is not. Naturally, it follows that they will formulate what we consider to be beautiful, after their own image. I will have to be honest with you.
Though I am cognizant of how they shape my opinions, I still can’t help but find white women, and women of Latin descent that conform to there physical ideal, to be the most attractive.
I don’t find black women attractive unless they are mixed and have Caucasian like bodies and facial features (i.e. Halley Berry). That goes to show you the power of the media. Posted by an anonymous

Hmm...Well anonymous, I think that’s a sorry excuse on your part saying because of media portrayals, you don’t find black women attractive. The media can only go so far, there are lots of people out there (me inclusive) that don't succumb to it. It’s kind of like sushi; you either like it the first time you try it or you don’t, and because they (the media) say it’s an aphrodisiac doesn’t make us like it when we don’t. Everyone has a preference, and yours just seem to be women that are mixed and have Caucasian like bodies and facial features like Halley Berry – don’t blame the media for your choices.

We all are respondsible for the choices we make but it's can be shaped by our enviroment,which the media plays one of the most important role if not the most important. Which are been owned by the rich and elites.

We get bombarded with images of white been the best.From santa claus,jesus chrisht,saints and models.

While the same media portrays Africa as a black continent. All images you see on the western media of on Africa is annoying. You can go to BBc,CNN and others jus to confirm this.

As a kid if you should be exposed to this negativity it will definetely affect the way you see an African and there are others.

Question to you: do these caucasian/caucasion looking women find you attractive? Do you think that there is the possibility that they too might be put off by your non-aquiline, etc features?
