I'm black and I do find black men attractive but I think there are men of all colors and ethnicities that are good looking.

I think that there are just as many good looking black women as there are in other races on average. It's just that society prefers the whiter look.

I call this the Kim Kardashian/JLO phenomenon. These women are revered and highly praised for attributes that many Black women are chided for having.

For many (not all) non-Black women, there is a "mystique" about Black men. A beautiful man is a beautiful man however when there is sexual taboo involved (as there often is with Black men/non-Black women) will either "intrigue" or "repel". I will venture to state that many of the women who have said they they would not date/sex/marry a Black man simply have not (yet) been approached by one who piqued their curiosity...but they would.
I definitely agree with that, especially from a media standpoint. Celebrities and entertainers get praised for traits stereotypically associated with black women. For example, Angelina Jolie is praised for her thick luscious lips, Kim Kardashian for her round behind, and Marylin Monroe for her curves. Despite not being held to the same level as the women mentioned before, fortunately, there are some gorgeous black women in the media such as Kelly Rowland and Jennifer Hudson.

I agree with that sentiment. I can see a black or even hispanic female who is only slightly curvaceous and think that she has an "ok" body, but put that same body on an asian, caucasian or even a very light skinned black female and it makes "her" body appear very sexy.

Some of the best looking women are Hispanic...I don't know what kind of hispanics you see.
