come down like 90% personal taste and 10% perception. Even people who don't usually find people of other races attractive (but aren't bigoted, really) can agree that there are some examples of people from other races that are really good-looking, i.e. Rihanna or Beyonce or Jennifer Lopez or Eva Mendes or Sandra Oh or Maggie Q or something.

I do prefer black men, and happen to be dating one now. But I love men of ALL races, so it's hard to say one ethnic group is "better looking" than another... considering I've seen hella ugly black men, and plenty of gorgeous non-black men - ya know?

P.S. I did vote yes (and see it's now a public poll), only because they're usually my preference.

I agree...all races have some super fine men and some super not so attractive but beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

You've got to be kidding me, right? I find the woman scarier (and whiter) than a ghoul. I don't want to be mean, Sandra, but if you ever go to a Halloween party don't bother wearing a mask!

Eva's face looks a little masculine to me and Rihanna looks like an alien. The other two I agree with, though (dunno who Maggie Q is tho). It really is a matter of personal taste, I don't listen to what the tabloids tell me is 'hot.'

You definitely need to read the article upon which this thread is based. Its actually much more of a back-handed compliment than an expression of the beauty of Black men.

We have our share of ugly dudes, so I'm not sure if I'm willing to accept that study. However, I do think there is some merit to what it said about black women. The issue there isn't so much about looks as much as it's about the attitude stereotype that they get, but you can find beauty anywhere.
