We all have a preference. I think beautiful women of any "color" are the most desirable.
I personally prefer MOSTLY whites. Not all my crushes were Caucasian, though.

There you have it. People have spoken. I'll be interested to know what type of women do black men want to see in porn?

Well according to a study (which I will not link to) the porn term for black women "ebony" is the highest porn search in the Southern states and also in any cities with a large percentage of African American residents. "Ebony" is also one of the top five porn search terms in the United States overall.

Perhaps this is one of the reasons that "ebony" or black women are one of the top searched porn terms.

Joy74, steelers, moon and stars, calipoppy and jade all killed it in this thread. All of them said nothing but truth. One thing I want to add is that the FACT that white women are promoted as the standard of beauty does not mean that they ARE the most beautiful group of women. Any man or woman that believes that is clueless. Every race has their groups of most attractive, averages, and unattractives. White women are no different. The images that we see paraded in the media that feature tan white women with pretty eyes, plush lips, athletic slim bodies, bubble butts, long pretty hair and feminine European features, do not represent the majority of white women. While there are plenty of attractive white women, there are just as many that are average or unattractive. The same goes for black women, Asian, Hispanic, etc.

The difference I suppose is that the media and society often pumps up the idea that MOST white women look like the images we see in the media, while doing the complete opposite for instance with black women. We are led to believe that the black women in the media are only attractive because they look white but that the average black woman is not attractive. And as I said this is exactly opposite of the way in which society sees white women, there is an underlining belief that white women on average look as beautiful as the white women often promoted in the media, and that there are only small groups of white women that are unattractive(honey boo boo is often used as an example). When the reality is that most white women when compared to other races of women of the same caliber-apples to apples-are not any more beautiful or exceptional looking than their racial counterparts.

It's so ingrained in society to associate white women with an image of Upton, or fox, etc that most minority men seeking white women are seeking the ones that have that look. In fact there have been numerous threads started by these men where they complained about specific white women rejecting them and whenever they described these white women they almost always sounded as though they were describing a woman who's attractiveness was to the caliber of upton or megan fox.

It wasn't as if these men were interested in all white women, just certain ones. Ones that look similar to the images being promoted to them. Ones that don't look like "averages".

On the other hand people will often say that it's impossible for a black woman like beyonce to be fully black because she is attractive or they will say she has white features and that's why she's attractive or they will say that most black women don't look like her. It's almost always a negative tone. It's those differences that I find very amusing. The assumption "that black women in the media do not represent the beauty of black women because the ones in the media are only attractive because they look white but full black women don't look that way and thus only most black women aren't attractive and the ones that are look white". It's funny logic, but really speaks to what has been sold to the masses about beauty. In reality it's subjective and race really should not have bearing, but unfortunately that is not the case. Certain images are being sold as beautiful and women that don't meet those images are casted, women that do are placed on a pedestal. Hence the reason why white women, and really only certain ones, are often coveted.

That being said I see plenty of attractive white women in my workplace. They are often always tan, with silky hair, good bodies, etc and they know they are pretty and men treat them accordingly. Whether they admit it or not they are aware that they are desirable to a lot of men. The ones that are more average looking or that are unattractive still might be looked at in a positive manner compared to black women for instance--solely might I add based on the fact that they are white--by minority men and even some white men but overall they have different experiences then the very attractive white women. Overall white women have a great advantage in the dating world, even those that are not very attractive. Women on the opposite end of the spectrum where the media has basically called most unattractive but a few "white looking ones" fare different circumstances.

Some people want to believe otherwise but it's truth. If white women were not the dominant image of beauty in the media things would be different. Yes white men would probably still prefer them overall(just like most black men prefer black women) but they would not get as hyped up as they are.

He blamed white girls? I thought he blamed beautiful blond girls?

I didn't realize white girls were the standard of beauty, but I don't have cable or follow that kind of stuff so what do I know?

No. But they'll always be desired, it is human nature for people to be attracted to a number of different races, shapes, sizes, colors, etc.

90% of white women don't even measure up to white "standards" of beauty. The expectation is to have blonde or light brown hair, above average (or larger) breasts, moderately wide hips, relatively flat buttocks, and that gap between the thighs that all young girls want nowadays.

You have to be perky, but not too perky. Sexy without being slutty. Intelligent but not so much that you outshine the fellas.

Seriously, white women have a lot to live up to and it's not realistic. Multiply this by 10 for Asians, 25 for Latinas and 100 for black women.

Personally, I prefer darker skinned black women (medium/chubby) and paler white women (medium/chubby). Basically I like women like me (black) and women that are the complete opposite. Bonus points to plump gingers and raven headed white women.

You know its funny because, no one was thinking about WW in this way before this guy went on his killing spree and a few months from now, no one will be thinking about them in this way again. So now, after celebrating the beauty in so many other races of women, we want to have a serious discussion about WW because someone couldn't handle the rejection?

I'm not mad about it or anything but feminists have been speaking about the hypocrisy of impossible standards of beauty that WW were expected to live up to for several decades, and little has changed. Then other races of women try to jump in on the whole feminist thing but the honest truth is that it never spoke to them, for them, or included them, and it never will, because it is a different struggle that women of color experience, because it is about the contradictions of being the world's standard, while experiencing such demeaning, humiliating, and denigrating treatment, often at the hands of WM (but not exclusively).

But of course, the movement will accept their support as validation, as it makes it real in a way that it never would have been otherwise (other than if it were just WW protesting). Just pawns in a chess game; you never heard that from me though.
