I really get so tired of seeing only white women being glamorized and portrayed as the most beautiful. Don't get me wrong, Jessica Beale, Jessica Alba... Oh MY GOD!! Drop dead gorgeous, but there are so many other women celebreties of color who would just blow viewers minds.

An intelligent person may understand that to mean one of at least two things. Perhaps certain people only find white women attractive, but that would not even be a majority of people. Maybe whites glorify other whites out of fear that when compared to other races they may not appear as beautiful.

I remember once at job of mine when I was a young man, my manager, a co-worker and myself were looking at the women in cafeteria while having lunch. My manager, a white man, looked at a black girl and commented on the size of her glute's. He said, "that's nasty and fat." This woman was built like a track star (Serena Williams but smaller). I told him that is muscle. Black women have muscular glute's. He didn't agree and instead turned our attention toward a white girl who had no behind what so ever and told us, "that is a nice @#$." We laughed.

Everyone knows that even Video game, Super Hero, and comic book vixens are always drawn in the way most black women look without plastic surgery.

Everyone wants to have and needs color to protect us from ultra-violet rays coming from the sun. So we have tanning salons and nude beaches for the many pale who want color. We know it looks beautiful.

The sad part about all of what I am saying will be perceieved by some scared, ignorant person who may not know they're a racist, as racism.

Let's be clear about something. A racist believes their race is superior to another because of color and/or ethnicity. Racism is when racist ideologies are institutionalized and used to persuade masses into accepting that ideology.

This society fills our minds with white beauty so much even our most beautiful black celebrities wish they weren't black, want to be, look like, act and befriend white people more than their own (Michael Jackson, Beyonce' Knowles, Little Kim, Diana Ross, Sherri Washington, Halle Berry, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks etc.).

I just want to bring this truth to people's minds for important dialougue regarding this melting pot we call America.

I have no intentions on proving anyone's race is more superior to anothers, I'll leave that to media.

Hey Anchorman, I think you should maybe update and repost some of these polls. I know some of these chicks in this poll are not in the New York area anymore. BTW, you're the man for everything you do here.
