Hmmm. I don't have to tell myself anything. Nothing you said so far has been proven to be correct. It's all either your opinion, meaningless stereotypes, or what you've been fed by the media to believe about beauty. The reality is that beauty is universal. Most magazines that cater to men do mostly feature white women, but there are black magazines that feature only or mainly black women geared toward black men, and there are magazines with Latina women that are geared toward Latin males. At the end of the day within each race there are groups of women that are prettier than average. But as it stands most women, race aside, are average looking and do not look like the images we see in the media. The average white woman is not as attractive as upton or fox, and is not any prettier than the average Latina woman, Asian woman, or black woman of we were truly comparing apples to apples. But you can go ahead and keep telling yourself something different. It's okay. I understand.

I'd hate to offend the sensitive again. I know liberals hate when anyone disagrees with them
Time for me to just ignore the ignorant.

Apparently you do. Nice politically correct response if it helps you sleep at night...

You have FAILED to address the other two questions, so I will restate them for you.

Why do some women seek fuller, pouty lips?

Why are some women trying to reshape their bodies to be "curvier" (bigger bottoms)?

And could you please find another FAUX News catch phrase to parrot? You've already used "politically correct" numerous times in this thread.

Why do certain women wear horse hair or hair from the head of someone from Malaysia/China/India?

Granted, most white women don't meet the standard of beauty either, particularly in the west. But apparently their features are generally most desirable.

And check out magazines that cater to MEN and show what MEN want to see. There are plenty of beautiful non Caucasian women who could be ranked, but that's not what men want to see. Men want to see Candice Swanepoel, not Hyori Lee.

You are forgetting about the MEN who find non-Caucasion women the most desirable. I know that is probably a complete and utter shock to you that there are men all over the world who want to see non-Caucasion women on magazine covers, but they actually exists. I do not agree that the features of white women are universally desired. They are desired by men who are attracted by white women, that is it. I gurantee that if you make the assumption that all men find white women the most desirable, you are going to get publicly embarrassed by men who are NOT in the least PC about this topic, and will tell you exactly what they think of you and your misguided assumptions. I have watched this happen. The person had it coming. Ignorance is not tolerated in many circles. Men are different, and find different types of women desirable and attractive. It is just as basic and human as that.

Full, pouty lips or lips that are excessively large to the point of taking up ones face, like Kerry Washington?

Curvy is a race issue, really? Now excess weight being acceptable is a cultural thing, but curvy, no. An hourglass figure is typically universally desired. That's the problem with American women. A majority of American women confuse body shape with excess weight.

There are guys with yellow fever, but they're in the minority. And they typically develop that fever as a result of not being able to get the Caucasian women they want.

Just look at certain forums such as reddit or bodybuilder. the same guys who only date/like Asian women are the same ones who bad mouth white women, yet they're white guys.

And guys at my school are actually open about their dislike for certain non-Caucasian groups of women...and they're white guys who could probably get any girl. Wealthy, southern, short but eh looking.

Yeah, the Caucasian guys who like non-Caucasian women are typically not quality men.There are those few Robert DeNiro rejects who lack choices and therefore settle on finding other groups of women attractive. But that's after they realize the hot girls of their race don't want them.

My attraction to certain women has zero grounds in the media. It's just what I am naturally attracted to and there is no changing that.

Seriously, who cares what Caucasian men are attracted to? And since when are they the sole arbiters of the desirability of all women? This thread is not about what white men want.
