Open your politically correct eyes and have an honest discussion with yourself for once. I know what I see and I'm not afraid to call a spade a spade...no pun intended of course.

Time and time again, we see way too many Black celebrities and regular folks relaxing their hair, making it blonde, getting nose surgery and even waist/hip reductions. It just seems so obvious that many are changing their appearances to look "White".

Racial Psychology: Why Do Black People Want to be White? | The New Observer

Is it social pressure? The media? Is it because 90% of commercials on television use White actors?

What is the main influence.. what is going on?

Treat me with respect on this subject, I am an Iraq veteran and I am also black.

So what are black people so afraid of? Do they feel that they need to be accepted in a "White World"?
White women also relax their hair, and white women curl their hair.
White women dye their hair different colors.
And white women go to tanning salons to get darker skin.
(And white men also do the same things.)

Here in New Orleans some young white people wear their pants low and wear hats (in the style of low income black men.)

And here in New Orleans the young white people always imitate black people, whether its saying "what's up?", calling their friends "son", giving skin instead of a handshake, or giving each other gangster 1/2 hugs, ex.ex.ex..

So many white people also use the styles of black people.


Why do so many black American women and men seem to be adapting more white styles?

Perhaps its simply "American" culture. White people dominate/control American TV and magazines, and young black Americans grow up seeing white styles (and seeing many -successful- black Americans using white styles.)

Or perhaps they adapt white styles to be more accepted in a racist white America?


Beyonce is a famous singer and movie star, and she may sometimes use white styles to be accepted by all of America. But Beyonce often wears her hair in (major) curls, and she often wears her hair in (major) braids.

Michael Jackson is just weird.

And Nikki Minaj is black, but she changes her looks in major ways. But many white women also change their natural looks in major ways too. Maybe she just likes that style, and likes to impress her European fans.

And Sammy Sosa has some sort of mental illness for bleaching his skin like that.


I remember that movie where the young black man, got turned into a rich old white man. At the end of the movie he got turned into a young black man again. He was yelling and yelling for a taxi cab to stop for him, but all the taxi cabs just passed him by, then he yelled "I'm black again, I'm black again, thank God I'm black again."

Some white people will copy black styles, and some black people will copy white styles. But living in New Orleans I can say this, there are many black people who are still black (and they don't want to be white.)

I don't think we need to worry about black people becoming white, rather we need to worry about republicans totally destroying this country.

Chad.

Actually most Mexicans call themselves Mexican or Hispanic. Mexicans do generally consider "Mexican" to be their race.

You should provide statistics validating your observations. Why won't you post stats showing the interracial marriage rate of Black men earning over a certain income to prove your point? You can start here:

From that document:
Quote:
As for white female newlyweds, those who married a Hispanic or black husband had somewhat lower combined earnings than those who “married in,”
That suggests the set of black men marrying white women is not, on average, more successful than the set of black men marrying black women.

Mexican people can say what they want but; they're NOT a "race", they're usually a mix of white, Indian and many times have Black in their DNA. I've met many who are def "white", too.
