Speaking of unattractiveness (see image below), evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa served me a dose of reality in Psychology Today’s article posted yesterday entitled “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?” (the original article has since been removed from the website). Well, a dose of reality can be a good thing…it can be a wake up call!
True, I have been doused in the notion that all Asian men should love Black women and vice versa, but as you can see by the ignorance and straight up racism of this article, it is just not always true. But, seriously?? I get the feeling that the next article Kanazawa posts will be entitled “Why Do Black Women Have Tails and Women of Other Races Do Not?” I mean, this is some really throwin-it-back-to-the-days-of-jim-crow itsh. You know those days! When good law-abiding ‘Christian’ folks tried to prove by use of the Holy Bible that blacks were lower than animals because they were descended from Ham. It was really hard for me to believe that this article was recently written, and even more shocking, published! Well, actually, the most disappointing aspect of this article is that an Asian man wrote it. He should know better than anyone what it is like to be stereotyped and blacklisted. I also find it interesting that this article was printed at a time like this, when the AM/BW movement is strong, growing and moving ever ahead.
Forget Kanazawa san…but rather, what is Psychology Today really trying to tell us?
