Many black women are succumbing to the white man's version of beauty. I was flipping through a magazine the other day. I think it was Seventeen or something. There was a huge lack of black women in it, and if there were black women, I could barely tell the difference between them and the abundance of white women spread out throughout the magazine. They all seemed to have the same look: straight long hair, lots of make up, and super-thin limbs. I'm sorry, but a majority of our women do not look that way. Our hair is not naturally straight and/or long, we don't need a lot of make up to look good, and our weight distributes so that many of us have somewhat curvaceous bodies. And we are STILL beautiful. An example? Let's look at Thelma from Good Times who, at the start of the series, sported an afro, very little makeup, and a shapely figure. Did she not look good? I don't know what your answer is, but I think she was/still is a gorgeous woman. And she doesn't look a thing like any white woman I've ever seen. Now, I'd like to ask you all -- why do people find looking like this wrong, or at least, not right? Can we not look hot if we don't look like a skinny white woman?
