To answer the OPs question, Black women have always been desirable. It is just the majority of them rather have a good blackman which due to many societal ills (homosexuality, incarseration, unemployment, addiction ect) are unable to find their perspective Kings. Those who decide not to wait are finding releationships within other ethnicities with limited probelms.

I swear the "others" LIVE for everything we do and say.

If blacks (or black women were to leave the country), the "others" would NOT know what to do with themselves.

I guess the next in line to be dissected would be the native american and the various latino variations of said group.

It was a joke but beautiful women are always entitled to have a man (or woman) through minimal effort on their part

True.

Its funny because most people don't ponder things/people/ideas in which they have liitle or no interest. However, there seems to be a fixation on all things related to Black women (our hair, our romantic lives, etc) throughout this site.

No Tay, the OP and the other one is being insulting on purpose.

How many black women do you know IN PERSON that have the "flat nose" that "many" of us are supposed to have?

I rarely see this type of nose and when I do, it's usually on black MEN that are BOXERS. The Jacksons were an exception too, but it's not "many" like has been told here.

But I can certainly vouch for seeing many big, ugly noses on OTHER GROUPS, but I'm not going to call them out, because we already know who they are.

Also, loud, boisterous and uncouth behavior is ratchet when "some" black women do it, but is hot and fiery when a latina acts the same way. Yeah, okay.

When Mob Wives and trailerpark trash like Honey Boo Boo's family does it, what is it called then? Is it a representation of ALL white women?

Pathetic thread. Don't know why I allowed myself to get caught up in this *ish.

Throughout the WORLD you mean.

It's ashame, because you can tell who actually HAS black friends (real friends not associates) and who doesn't.

The OP may be onto something here, I hear the comments made while others are out of sight. There is an element of racism rather subconscious or not. Truthfully I have always believed women of colored possessed the more natural beauty. I Love a strong woman.

I suppose I have lucked up attending a school with a diversely defined makeup.

Nope, the rest of the world does not have a negative fixation on "blackness" or Black women for the most part. This becomes abundantly clear when traveling outside of the US as a Black woman.

I wish that more Black American women would travel outside of the US so that they would get a broader perspective of how we are viewed internationally instead of seeing ourselves through the twisted prism of hatred that is purely American grown. I truly believe that the overall standards of many Black women would be raised instantaneously by traveling abroad.
