That's your opinion and it has about as much bearing as others who claim Swedish women are the most beautiful. Who cares? Everyone is going to think one group of women are better looking than another. What you find attractive might not be attractive to me and what is good looking to me might not be shared by someone else.

I have never seen a light skin ethiopian or somalian, but maybe my definition of light is different than yours.
But I know what you mean, I am African American, but I get approached my other men asking if I mixed. You look Ethiopian, Eutriean, Somalian. I consider myself very dark, but I have really long hair.

Maybe it's your features. I have really long hair and no one asks me if I am mixed. I do get asked if I am from West Africa or Jamaica a lot. But I don't get mistaken for the mixed looking black people

Yeah but the Horner women have a reputation for being the most beautiful of all Africa. The ones who are referred to as beautiful have thin features, and soft textured hair. It's like everyone thinks the only way a black woman can be pretty is if she looks mixed

So say a lot. May not be the most politically correct thing to say, but the standard of beauty in America is defined by white features. No way around that. Now, that certainly doesnt mean that there arent people who dont feel that way, and love all types.

But, cold hard truth is that if you see what type of black women get the most compliments, or what black women are considered "pretty" or "beautiful" by the masses, most have some white features. Very rarely will some dark skinned woman with a wide nose, dark skinned, and short, kinky hair be high on the list. Nope.
