Why Black Women Should Be Rated Most Beautiful
In 2011, a journalist, Satoshi Kanazawa, posted an article on Psychology Today to impose a study on “Why Black Women are Rated Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women” and I, among many others, was extremely appalled.
First it was the billboard hanging in NYC stating that the most dangerous place for an African American child is in the womb. Now this?! So, I am here to rebuttal that whole racist and stereotypical article. I will share why in my social and psychological judgement, BLACK WOMEN MAY BE RATED MOST ATTRACTIVE.
I am sick and tired of all the stereotypes trying to bring down our entire race of women by throwing negative connotations our way. To be honest, Beautiful Black women have been through a lot, and have built so much strength over the years. Beautiful Black women have been beaten and abused by men of our race and other races, Beautiful Black women have had our identities stolen, and our pride stripped.
For many years, centuries even, Beautiful Black women have had to overcome so much adversity, pain, and misfortune. Beautiful Black women had our children taken from us, Black women been kidnapped from our native lands, forced into alternative lifestyles, and sold like property. Beautiful Black women have had to bear children, raise them alone, watch them get killed we’ve been shunned by our own people, devalued by other races, and continue to strive for a better way of life for the generations of African Americans to come… all while finding ways of keeping a sane and stable mind. So with that, I am here to speak my piece.
Now, I can’t speak for all Black women, nor can I speak for all the men who rate Beautiful Black women. But for those I do know, I have shared my views with them and they’ve shared theirs with me. I’ve come to realize the finest attributes of beautiful Black women and am so proud. Beautiful Black women aren’t perfect, no race or gender is, but Black women have so many unrecognized qualities and Black women deserve our platform to show it.
