most latinos an white guys are hott
1. latinos can be any race, including white, black or asian.

2. nobody in this hemisphere is "100% black"

3. to make generalizations about the attractiveness or intelligence of any race as a whole is beyond idiotic.

You can't be "half African American, genetically." The term African American refers to a group which in itself ranges from very little African and mostly European and/or Native to almost totally African with tinges of other racial backgrounds.

The truth hurts, though. It's very rare to find very dark skinned women portrayed as 'hot' in Western media, just as it is to find Asian men, although I think it's changing slowly. Denying the truth and pretending everything is rosy is NOT the way to confront it. You have to admit it and then go about changing it.

No one here was denying that dark skinned black women are underrepresented in Western media, but when I quoted you it sounded like you were saying that black women were less attractive, as if it were a fact.

Let me make it plain: I don't expect most non-black individuals to jump up and say that they generally find black women attractive. This is a white man's society, and many are brainwashed into believing that the whiter a woman of color looks, the more appealing she is.

My issue is with those who might suggest that white women are the absolute epitome of beauty, as if this is some sort of universally accepted truth.
