We don't need these type of threads here. That's for the P and C forum
So talking about how beautiful black women are compared to other ethnic groups is considered inflammatory? Your mentality and many people who think like you is the reason why race is still an issue in America. No wonder why some countries think we are a nation of cowards. Most of you cant handle the truth and are afraid to tackle an controversial issue. Eric Holder was right...

It is hard for me to say which group is the most beautiful naturally without being bias. I think black women certainly age the best by far, as do black men. They barely age compared to the rest of us, so lucky!

Like her or not, but Serena Williams looks way better than the majority of white women who are 30. Heck, I think she looks younger now compared to how she appeared when she was 18 and she still stays true to herself. A great example of a women who has not allowed American media to influence the way she acts. That beautiful face and smile of Gabby Douglas will pretty much stay the same after a couple of decades or even more, without the use of makeup or plastic surgery...if she continues to train, be happy, and keep herself in shape. Same goes along with many of the black female track athletes I see.

I guess what I am trying to say is that many black women age gracefully and our smile is natural and it resonates. Unfortunately many black women are generalized as being loud and obnoxious, overweight, and lazy. I blame society for this, because the female AA athletes you see in these Olympics are not the exception....they are really the rule. If most AA women are given the means to succeed and take pride in keeping themselves in shape and schoolwork, I am telling you they are probably the most beautiful women in the world. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Black women do tend to get very fat or at least have a build that's muscular, I also find black women to be loud and rude and that's a not the media this is what I experience when I go shopping or just on the street. I have been walking along minding my own business and most give me an attitude that I need to move aside which I am more than willing to vs nudging aside their 50 pounds breasts swinging at me and I that bug eyed look I get if I don't move. I don't find any of that beautiful at all.

That doesn't apply to all black females of course, one are very beautiful, same with white, Asian etc...

Brains and class = beauty IMHO is what it boils down to.

Nothing wrong with being loud. As someone who has a very softspoken voice that sometimes people have a hard time hearing, I envy those who have a loud voice that can be heard from across the room.

Online people criticize black women for being loud and sassy however I notice in real life its quite the contrary. The ones who are sassy make everyone laugh

Disagree. Asians age okay but you still have lighter skin thus making it easier to see aging.

If one cherry picks some modern day established standards as the criteria, that's called beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
Gabby Douglass has not had any plastic surgery. Neither has Serena Williams.

I have to disagree. There have been threads stating "European Women are the Hottest On Earth" and no one finds them to be inflammatory nor suggest they should be shut down. I think this thread should stay open. I just wish it wouldn't be littered with "black women get fat" "black women have attitude" from jealous and racist posters

I can't see myself ever posting "my race has more natural beauty than the other races."

But because you brought it up, I'll vote for Asians have the most natural beauty and aging extremely well.

(I am neither white, nor asian, nor black)

Of course it's inflammatory to say one race is more naturally beautiful than all the other races. I wonder how you would respond if a white person started a thread saying "white people are just much more beautiful than black people, white people have nicer smiles, and all the bad stereotypes of white people (like the claim that we don't age well) come from prejudiced black people". I'm sure you'd have no problems with that whatsoever, right?

There's no "truth" about what you're saying, it's just your own personal preference. There are plenty of Asians or caucasians who think their race is the most beautiful (but of course you'd dismiss that as racism). I've met plenty of dark-skinned people who weren't blessed with a beautiful smile or didn't age gracefully. But if you want to feel superior to others based on something as silly as the amount of melanin in your skin, go ahead. Isn't that the very definition of racism by the way?

And no, this isn't the same as talking about specific nationalities. You made it clear that you are talking about black people from all over the world so it's purely a race issue for you.

So it's fine to make positive generalisations about black people but as soon as someone says something negative, you automatically assume they're just jealous and racist? Quite a double standard there.

You are being jealous. There are so many threads on here celebrating the beauty of European women all the time. I've read plenty of comments from men saying Italian women are the most beautiful or even that white women in general are more attractive than other races. Let black women get some shine for a chance

I actually also think this is a racist thread that will more than likely not end well. As an almost forty year old white woman, I believe all women are beautiful. I believe there are beautiful woman of all nationalities and race. If I had to choose one, I would have to lean towards the Indian woman.

My smile is just as lovely as any black womans smile and I am also aging well. This has much to do with how we take care of ourselves. This has to do with whether or not we smoke, or put poisons in our body, or spend too much time in the sun.

I must say, I have seen many much older African American women who look much younger than they are. I have seen the same in all other people. being in the medical field and having women come to me, and having their age readily available in front of me, many times I am surprised, and I will tell them as much. Again, all nationalities or races.

I have also seen women who are 80 years old or so, with their wrinkles and grey hair. They have years behind them and have raised their families. They have lost many family members yet they are still here. I look at them and I think that they are just beautiful.

OP is making a broad generalization that black women are just better looking than white women. Well, I have seen some ugly ass black women. But, I've also seen some ugly ass white women as well. LMAO.

My grandma had a nurse. She was a black lady, about 60 years old. Let me tell you right now, she was not pretty to look at. On top of that, she smoked, talked fast, and at times...I am just gonna come out with it....acted ghetto.

So, I got to spending some time with Jessie. She took pretty good care of my grandmother, but many times did not show up for work. Her daughter kept taking off with her car. She couldn't drive but owned a car so that her daughter could drive her.

Sometimes I would go get her, sometimes my mother would, sometimes her daughter would bring her. She became more of a friend to my mother and grandmother than a caregiver but no one ever really said anything. I became my grandmothers as well as my mothers primary care giver. My grandmother ended up having to go into a nursing home after a stay in the hospital and Jessie stopped coming out.

I don't know how much longer it was that my mother passed away, maybe a half a year but Jessie was the first person to come out and help with every thing. She was a beautiful person.

I do take offense to many of the black women who come here jumping on the we are better than you bandwagon.
