Yes this is after the UCSB tragedy that happened after the guy got angry of white girls rejecting him and went on a rampage. Now since White girls are always promoted as the most attractive, guys (of all races) want them.

If they were not promoted as the most attractive, would they still be the most desired?

I am not sure that my own views on attraction always match up with those of the media. Thus, the media's promotion or lack thereof of white women as the standard of attractiveness will probably not affect my desires or lack thereof for white women that much.

Ehhh, the term "white" is so relative. I know for a fact the term "white" here in SoCal is very different than in England.

I think that he or she means "White" in the sense that the U.S. Census Bureau defines it.

I've never seen white women "promoted" as the most attractive. That is your own subjective reality. Choose to love yourself and validate your own beauty and you'll see the world differently.

They are in the media,and not just America.

Non white traits are not looked upon as "beautiful" in the media.

Do you know of any body getting eyelid surgery to get single eyelids(or cateyes)?

White women are most definitely promulgated as the most beautiful - that Nordic, blond hair and blue eye look. But, in general, white and Jewish people control the media, so it is natural that they would promote their own women as the pinnacle of beauty.

This isn't controversial. Majority opinion has always been an arbiter of taste.

I am not sure I would assign a negative connotation of a "conspiracy" because marketing types lean towards models who are representative of attractiveness ideals to the majority population.

There are also a lot of terrific looking, highly successful models of minority descent in modern marketing.

The marketers are not trying to force down people's throats what is attractive, they are trying to appeal to what most already think is attractive to gain people's attention. If they find the stereotypical blue eyed blond model gets the most attention, then they are more than likely to go that route.
