Everyone LOVES a non-black black girl

22 Oct

Thick lips, full hips, ample breasts, rounded butt, trim waist–sounds average right? Sounds like the kind of woman that really fills out the word, and makes your mouth water. That is a beautiful women, right? Only if its on Scarlett Johanssen, Jessica Biel, and Christina Hendricks. For years I’ve watched white women tan, plump their lips, do lunges incessantly, buy bigger breasts and the list goes on and on to try and achieve the kind of beauty that is regularly associated with black women.  Why is it such a Hollywood anomaly to see voluptuous women that when one appears she gets fawned over? Not only that, even the black women in media are starting to migrate towards “white” standards of beauty.

I would like to make it clear that I am not “hating” on anyone black or white, but I am trying to understand why is it so “exotic” when its really not? If someone is looking for a voluptuous woman why are they looking for the rare white women when 50 black actresses look the part.  Does it really come down to skill? I’m just trying to understand.

What are your thoughts of our standards of beauty? Is there a “black beauty” and a “white beauty”?

    It confuses me. All the science of sex shows say those characteristics are desirable just from an evolutionary standpoint, but the standards change by generation.

    Take even the video vixens from the 80’s and 90’s…they were super skinny with short sometimes natural hair.

    But take say the Victorian or post civil war period and their tiny waists to accent their chests and embellished hips.

    Who knows…maybe there isn’t a standard…

    it’s undeniable that there are black and white standards of beauty, hollywood standards of beauty etc. i joke with white girls at work who worry about their butts getting to big because i always get excited when my butt gets a little bigger. LOL. But seriously, many of us grow up wanting to look the opposite of how we look. I was always painfully skinny so I wanted to be thick. I wanted to be more brown like my mom, more curvy like my mom. But I took after my dad’s side of the family. for some reason, we have a hard time accepting our own beauty and the media makes it just that much harder.

    There are so many standards of beauty and I agree with GG, we have a hard time accepting our own beauty. The media doesn’t help, in any sense. If you stick to fashion mags and major TV networks, you want to be rail thin and tall. If you’re into music videos and urban media you want a body that’s little waist and all ass and tits.
