It seems that media and basically a lot of newspaper these days are set on forcing the whole ideal that mixed race people (basically white and black mixed in their eyes) are more attractive than everyone else. Now if you disagree, you get branded a racist fast!

I remember a Black friend of mines asking "so let me get this straight, you are telling me a mixed race guy is more attractive than me because he has White in him while I am not good looking because I don't have any White in me?". It was against this college girl who said that and the girl didn't respond.

What are your thoughts on the whole mixed race people are more attractive belief?

You kind of have to look at people like Halle Berry, Derek Jeter, Rashida Jones, Alicia Keyes, Jessica Ennis, Vanessa Williams, Lolo Jones, Olivia Munn and Shemar Moore and draw your own conclusions. Not an unattractive person in the bunch. Not even just a slightly above average person among them as they are pretty much universally thought of as VERY attractive. Your President Barak Obama is mixed race but he's ugly.

I think its ridiculous to say that any race (or mix of races) is more attractive than other races because people all look different. Take a look at any Miss Universe Pageant and you'l see beautiful women of all races, colors, countries, etc. Its just that some people may have their own specific PREFERENCES, but this doesnt mean that what they like is more attractive than others.

I can list a bunch of mono-race people who are considered universally attractive. The people you listed are either beauty pageant winners or models/actresses of course they are going to be above average.

More attractive? Than what? This is a matter of taste, as there is certainly more than one way to appeal to the eye of the beholder, whomever that might be.

I think it's a crock. People of all kinds are attractive including mixed-race people.

Why does it bother you that people of color are on TV? This country is filled with many races so i think we should expect to see the same on TV.

Also, maybe its as simple as your taste in women or men is not popular.

Actually....no! I just posited this to my staffie-****su-saint bernard-dingo, and his response was unintelligible. Still, I am not fluent in Swahili, so perhaps there is merit to this....

because maybe he only has a black and white TV, and people of colour are therefore 'redundant'. Go easy on the man...

My ex wife is Inuit Eskimo and Irish.
She's very beautiful but her beauty stands on it's own merit as opposed to it being a byproduct of interracial breeding.
