White people find White people more attractive, and that is ok. Black people should find Black people more attractive, and that should be ok. The problem is that minorities are trying to achieve a "Whiter" standard, because we've been told that they are more attractive. It is a difficult standard to achieve. We need to look within ourselves, our communities, and our ancestors and see the beauty in us, and be ok with that. If you like different things, that is ok too, but no one should be trying to convince someone else that another group is more attractive as a group. That is a harmful way of thinking.


Again, irrelevant to my posts.  i am glad you have a soapbox, i actually agree with everything you said but it makes zero sense that you are trying to use it to counter my point.

Lord, Lord, Why Did You Make Me Black?

Why did You make me someone the world wants to hold back ?
Black is the color of dirty clothes ; the color of grimy hands and feet.
Black is the color of darkness ; the color of tire-beaten streets.
Why did you give me thick lips, a broad nose and kinky hair ?
Why did You make me someone who receives the hatred stare ?
Black is the color of a bruised eye when somebody gets hurt.
Black is the color of darkness. Black is the color of dirt.
How come my bone structure’s so thick ; my hips and cheeks are high ?
How come my eyes are brown and not the color of the daylight sky ?
Why do people think I’m useless ? How come I feel so used ?
Why do some people see my skin and think I should be abused ?
Lord, I just don’t understand ; What is it about my skin ?
Why do some people want to hate me and not know the person within ?
Black is what people are "listed", when others want to keep them away.
Black is the color of shadows cast. Black is the end of the day.
Lord, You know, my own people mistreat me ;
and I know this just isn't right. They don’t like my hair or the way I look.
They say I’m too dark or too light.
Lord, Don’t You think it’s time for You to make a change ?
Why don’t You re-do creation and make everyone the same ?

(God answered :)
Why did I make you black ? Why did I make you black ?
Get off your knees and look around. Tell Me, what do you see ?
I didn't make you in the image of darkness. I made you in the Likeness of ME !
I made you the color of coal from which beautiful diamonds are formed.
I made you the color of oil, the black-gold that keeps people warm.
I made you from the rich, dark earth that can grow the food you need.
Your color’s the same as the panther’s, known for beauty and speed.
Your color’s the same as the Black stallion, a majestic animal is he.
I didn't make you in the Image of darkness, I made you in the Likeness of ME !
All the colors of a Heavenly Rainbow can be found throughout every nation ; And when all those colors 
were blended well,
YOU BECAME MY GREATEST CREATION.
Your hair is the texture of lamb’s wool, such a humble, little creature is he.
I am the Shepherd who watches them. I am the One who will watch over thee.
You are the color of midnight-sky, I put the stars’ glitter in your eyes.
There’s a smile hidden behind your pain that’s the reason your cheeks are high.
You are the color of dark clouds formed when I send My strongest weather.
I made your lips full so when you kiss the one you love they will remember.
Your stature is strong ; your bone structure, thick to withstand the burdens of time.
The reflection you see in the mirror...
The Image looking back at you is MINE !

Jimmy, I agree that mixed people have a wider selection pool, but you said that on average, White women and Black women "can't compete" with mixed women, because they are deemed more attractive. That part isn't true. Look at the modeling industry, beauty contests, "Hot 100" lists, People's Most Beautiful Women, so on and so forth, and most times at the top is a White woman, so to say on average mixed women are deemed more attractive shows clear bias. That is most likely from a minority male perspective. Again, I'm not saying mixed women aren't attractive. I'm just saying your view isn't shared by the majority of men. The majority of Black men, but not men overall.


Do you understand between what it means to talk about rates or averages?  All that has no bearing on what i've said in this thread. 

 
Do you understand that on average most men date and marry women of their own race, not mixed race? Do you understand that on average White women are selected as the most attractive in polls, beauty contests, and account for most models (not mixed women)? Do you understand that you haven't posted one piece of quantitative data to support your point? All you've done is counter my points with your opinions. I understand, but I'm not sure you understand.

I'm doing all of those things. Cry In my defense, only because debating Jimmy is more entertaining than studying for the bar exam.

Sir, you can hurl accusations and generalizations, but it doesn't make your point any more true. This topic isn't controversial to me. All I do is think critically. I'm a first generation born American of African decent. My people are seen as the bottom, so I accepted who and what I was a long time ago. You assertions don't hurt me. I don't care, but your assertions are WRONG. My point was that asserting a certain group's beauty as superior is misguided, as the preferences you see have other variables. If you can't see that, then nothing I type can help you. Why don't YOU think more critically before YOU type.


No one said one group is superior i said mixed people have features that appeals to a larger percentage of a population because they are a product of two different backgrounds.  They will have a LARGER pool of suitors and have better odds. 

I only spoke in probabilistic terms, you are the one adding superiority and other fancy words to it.
