I take it that you visited NY.... a lot of blacks there aren't even AA..... you're proving me right....
non-AA Blacks are always defensive for some reason.

If I was offensive to everyone, it was in reaction to the arrogant initial post to start this thread.
Yes, black people are for the most part just that... blacks. And most of the time, it IS tricky to place a random black girl to a country, at a go. However, when grouped according to ethnicity, differences in general appearance start to emerge between the groups of girls from different tribes/nations/etc.. For example, in Africa, a combination of being naturally muscular, big-boned, dark-skinned, and a certain look in the eyes I can't fully describe (sometimes bulgy eyes), is the typical profile of a West-African person for us S.Africans. You would have to live in a very western society, of which you seem to, to be oblivious to the differences in physical features among black groups. I can distinguish a South African from a non-South African black 90% of the time because of how my people look...yes they are black.. Yes a local individual girl may even look like someone from out of the country, but the differences still emerge, even in that particular case many times. If you read my following few posts I state how a bit different the case is with AAs... AAs are generally a mixture of African groups, and have hence produced girls that could be from any, but not limited to, transatlantic slavery-relevant country in Africa... BUT have ALSO developed looks that I really fail to place anywhere in Africa (note, I am excluding people with less than 90% African dna)... Though they do look like what the world calls African; the trouble being pin-pointing which country. So in as much as some AA ladies can be interchangeable with other blacks, they too, after all these years, have developed looks, within the population, exclusive to them.. Which makes them comparable to other groups. Even you used the phrase "..to some degree".. And said you attract foreign blacks, which insinuates an societal acknowledgement in different looks among blacks. You seem to refer a lot to black women in the West, and from what I have noticed, most dispora blacks originate from the same region of Africa anyway, west Africa.. So ofcourse you will often find it difficult to tell the difference between an AA woman and black Euro woman.. Because within the AA pool lies the stereotypical looking Nigerian in there, as well as the stereotypical Ghanaian (though the reverse does not necessarily apply). As I said, with AAs its a little more complicated, but as you can see on this thread many AAs feel they have their own look. I hope you can connect the unmentioned dots I put out. I rate the looks of a county's women based on the general number of the pretty vs ugly girls I see in a population. So to me its not about which country has the prettiest woman, but the country which will leave me the most confused at a club, as to which girl to go for! And anyway, whether or not blacks all over the world are distinguishable, my method of rating still applies. So my opinion is unwavered.
PS I did not suggest non-AAs where all better looking than AA women.. In fact I put AA women in my top 5. So please read and understand before responding.
I like that you think I'm an old man.
You must be referring to average differences between AAs and Africans, in that case there is some differences usually but it's still the same look. Africans in the new world via the slave trade were exposed to many different races of people, some to a highe frequency than others, hence the different look from African blacks. when it comes to AAs relative to blacks in the new world/diaspora..they all look generally the same..AAs relative to Africans in Africa, there are some differences on average, which you noted..but still the same look.

In your prior post you said your people(south africans)look different from the other blacks in Africa, how so? If you referring to Koisan(what's left of them)i agree, or the "colords", i agree. What is the ratio of colords relative bantus in south Africa, and what is the difference between South African bantus and west/central Africans to make you say you look different from other blacks?

South African bantus are heavily mixed with khoisan and some non-Africa dna has found its way into them. Alotta SA could be mistaken for AA. I can tell a south Africa from bantus up north. They are also too white for my liking.

When you live in Africa, black is the race you mostly see, so you're exposed to the whole black thing a whole lot more than people outside. So the phrase "the same look" in this conversation now becomes very relative. I ask myself, "same look?" Are you referring to that they all have black skin? Are u referring to the fact that their hair is generally nappier?...Or is it a facial look that says 'one nation' like say, the Japanese? Of which I disagree with, standing from a black frame of reference, in a black country with the largest amount of African immigrants than anywhere on earth. Blacks are considered the most physically diverse race, within and outside of our various ethnic genetic groups. I must assert that, to me AAs arnt GENERALLY different in a special way to Africans...but different in a way any African group is to another, with or without non-black genes in them (I'm excluding visibly extreme non-black mix cases, because in SA such people are called coloured, and constitute of a whole other race, which is a whole other topic). I noticed you kind of grouped AAs against all Africans (who are very diverse), and wanted to correct you in that I compared 'AAs to different black groups all over (even within Africa)' and not AAs to Africans.

Coloureds are another complex issue. Coloureds lie anywhere between South African blacks and whites. They are result of random mixing between the two (and others sometimes) races on many levels. Not only are they a result of SA bantu mixing with whites, but many also owe their genetic lineage to the khoisan. The khoisan's story (the truly native South Africans, though originally from the north western side of SA) is pretty much like that of your Native Americans in the US. They have drastically decreased in numbers. Those that look like your classical bushman are hardly, if ever, seen in metropolitan and the vast majority of rural South Africa. They are mostly seen in coloured people. But again the coloured issue is complex.. It is not so much a skin colour (racial) thing here, as it is a cultural thing aswell.. You have many coloureds that (almost) look pure black, but will at the same time have features not typical of Africans... Its all a haze... A way to fully identify a coloured is in the way they speak, their distinctive accent and the use of Afrikaans, the Dutch settler language. Not to say you don't get bantu people that can speak Afrinaans...in fact it was forced on us in the early-mid 1900s, abolished after the 1976 black youth riots. Black South Africans (bantus as westerners call it) also owe their uniqueness to their khoisan gentic lineage. Because of a lot mixing among the different bantu groups, that moved down here, along with the khoisan, black South Africans inherited a lot of the physical traits of the khoisan. Black SAs are generally lighter skinned than other stereotypical blacks, to the point of being 'yellow' sometimes. Black SAs are also usually smaller in stature- somewhere between the khoisan and the west Africans in size. We are less muscular than west/central Africans. Our hair is very course, peppercorn like...just like the khoisan. Unlike west/central Africans who have wavier hair. Our facial features range from tribal to less tribal- features exclusive to South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, and Swaziland (these country's people are indistinguishable- the same tribes, though we in SA don't use words like 'tribe'). The biggest thing that helps us tell a South African from a non-SA black, are the facial features, which are very hard to describe... I don't know.. our heads arnt shaped like some west Africans I've seen. We generally aren't flat at the back of our heads and our noses are usually smaller. I have also noticed that South African women have high cheek-bones, more than most black groups I've seen..though we have many other looks aswell. Many Asian groups have this cheek-bone feature. I really can't go into detail about facial features as I'm sure you understand. But I think our women are beautiful, and cannot be confused for a west/central African almost like all the time. The same applies to men, and I'm sure a west African will agree with me, if they react objectively without emotion.
As far as the ratio of colourds to 'bantu' blacks in SA; I really cannot accurately say, because even a fresh half black-half white person is considered coloured. Its a very complex dynamic.
A side note; South Africa is the furthest sub-saharan country from the equator. And a lot of it is placed on the Drakensburg. What I've said makes us higher interms of altitude, and have a greater variation in weather seasonally than most, if not all of Africa. Thus our skin tone, hair, and body size... In all regional essence. I really hate to sound all superficial. And also SA does have millions of dark-skinned blacks, just to put it out there.

The high altitude means thinner air than many, if not most populated regions on earth... The ideal anatomy for such a geographical region is one that is compact in size. Hence the khoisan's size, especially since they have been here way longer.

Blacks constitute 79% of the population, which includes the millions of black foreigners living in the country, accourding to SA census 2011. Coloureds, as grey as their boundaries are, constitute only 9%, but are not hard to find in all metropolitan areas.

You got that right! Too many African-American women have done me wrong as of late. I never though I'd say this, but a lot of AA Women are proving JamaicanBarbie Right because many of them these days do not appreciate us, and will sleep with or date another man behind our backs. Many seem too shallow, and materialistic like I hear with the same stories with Chinese Women which are their Tribal Cousins (google the first Chinese are Black) are nowadays.

Most of them are bald,fat,wearing extensions,hair weaves,wigs,& of course they're unattractive & they want to say they're the most beautiful black women on the planet? GTFOH with b.s. I find white,latina,asian,& of course foreign black women are the most beautiful women on the planet not African American Women. I just dont find AAW attractive that's all & I have a right to feel this way.
Plus AAW are extremely heightist making them even more unattractive...

All the standards of beauty regardless of what anybody says are based off AA women. The lips, the booty's the curves, everything.
These are all black men's preference so other women mimick black women to appeal to black men.
Black American women are actually the world wide standard of beauty, and have been for quite some time.

I too have to agree. Black women are beautiful period. But we have to remember where African-American women got their beauty from.

Which would rather have to dinner
a dump of sh it
or blacks
The world naturally chooses a pile of sh it over blacks

The question above is documented in a real life documentary, high volume revenue in the U.S., link to documentary below
http://www.solarmovie.so/link/play/948933/

Peoples reactions are exponentially more positive to you to bringing a pile of sh it to the dinner table rather than bringing a black to the dinner table, naturally, not even a philosophical matter. Blacks stink up the host's house worse than feces.
