You are a breath of fresh air.

As my mother says, "Pretty is as pretty does." Oh, and "Beauty is more than skin deep."

Lots of truth to those old sayings. Attractiveness and basic good looks transcend race.

how did a thread about the appearance of black men solely turn into a debate about the attractiveness of black women? seems like black women are the scapegoat for everything

Apparently you didn't read the original article and ensuing controversy. It is always open season on black women unfortunately.
