Since I was a young girl my grandmother has always told me and my sister always remember…you are black and you are beautiful. She told us that everytime we visited her. It’s like she knew what we would be up against in this big bad world of preducie and sexist arrogance.
However when the story broke that an Asian psychologist by the name of Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa made a very controversial claim that ‘black women are less attractive than their Asian or White Counterparts I wasn’t so calm on the matter!
The so called phd Dr. wrote in an article for the London School of Economics that ‘black women are significantly less physically attractive than women of other races’. The study was apparently carried out in relation to US study ratings on female attractiveness. The outrage on twitter ensured the article on the site was removed IMMEDIATELY! I should think so too.
The only explanation that he offers in the original post is…’The only thing I can think of that might potentially explain the lower average level of physical attractiveness among black women is testosterone.’ In other words he is saying that black women come across more manly and that is why in his scientific opinion, black women are supposedly less attractive. ‘ Africans on average have higher levels of testosterone than other races, and testosterone, being a male hormone, affects the physical attractiveness of men and women differently.’
To me this is not a matter of opinion and is simply racism in a rude guise of unsceintific claims! Plus I’m thinking another possible reason for his research is a beautiful black women broke his heart and he is on some deranged war path. It’s been reported that this man will carry out social research studies with shock value and from his last piece of controversial research he seems to have a thing about women. He Also posted a research question asking ‘Are all women essentially prostitutes?’.
Ladies this don’t phase me one bit. Remember black is synonymous with the word BEAUTY!
Speak on it!
