I don't know if this will help with anything at all. But there are a TON of white people, especially young white people, with very low self-esteem as well.

Granted, I'm sure for a black woman with low self-esteem, it is even more difficult.

But probably most women within American society suffer from self-esteem issues. It's basically what sells tons of books, products, movies, everything.

It's all a matter of taste. When I was in Saudi Arabia, the young Saudi men told me that Moroccan women were the most beautiful in the world.

In the ethiopia thread people cant' stop gushing about how beautiful & diverse they are. it really messes with my self esteem. I can't help but wish I had fine texture hair and thin facial features. its been 17 pages already and not very many people have raved about the beauty of west african looking women the way they have in just 2 or 3 short pages in the ethiopia thread.

Who frequents the Ethiopian thread? People from that country, Expats, people married to Ethiopian women? On another forum I go to (they probably won't let me say its name) that has to do with skyscrapers and is broken down by region and country, someone just made a thread for the beautiful west African girls. So just because that thread you frequent raves over the women of that country, it doesn't mean its universal by any means and that there are not other threads highlighting beautiful women from the Western African region. Are these women kind, caring, do they do much to help others, thats what goes through my mind when I see celebrities, models and singers from other countries. Do the best with who you are. Best Wishes.

What if someone said all Asian men have tiny ding dongs and all Asian women are hoes looking for a white man to marry and rescue them from poverty; or all Australians racist? These would not be acceptable, as much as the comment made above.. unacceptable.

That thread is about Ethiopian and beauty. This thread is about self-esteem and comparison. So, they attract different responses.

I just did a quick 'Ghana beauty' google search, and saw a ton of very attractive women there as well.

It is unfortunate, Asians are victims also of long-standing racism. Don't shoot the messenger, are you disputing the truth in what I'm saying? The number of 'pin-ups' with full African features in America is next to zero. The blacks depicted are pretty mixed. Asians aren't really portrayed much as good looking either. This might change in the future, though.

I would say slowly is the key word here. The thing is, Blacks have fought and have been willing to die for things to change, and even though many changes have been drastic, some remain slow.
