Very few Blacks in Hampshire, only a self hater would move there, considering we are already only 3% of the UK population.

Yes some BM prefer curvy Women, some prefer petite or their own ethnic group BUT I feel some women are NOT satisfied with these answers and want to make it about her skin complexion or her hair, at least this is the vibe I'm pickin' up from some women in this thread. However most believe it's her body type why some BM were NOT feelin' her. I still believe many PPL live their life through celebrities & the media. That's the only reason why PPL would be so concerned about why a certain group of men are NOT praising a woman on TV.
Our group is constantly told we have issues we need to fix or address in our community even tho other groups have issues as well. They are NOT constantly reminded about them, in fact I don't think they really care as much because they see themselves as united, so everything is alright in their eyes when compared too AA's even tho some of their PPL may have poor health and physiological issues. Racial or cultural unity is highly valued in society along with religion. So PPL feel if they are lacking these things, they are made to feel they have issues or something is wrong with them.
It is about her skin complexion and hair. That's why many thick curvey Black women bleach their skin and wear weaves, instead of relying on their body shape to attract BM.
My thick dark skinned friends living in America, say AA talk the talk about loving thick women, but in reality they go with the Eurocentric standards of beauty. If you are light skinned, long haired and thick... great. But if you are dark skinned, BM don't care if you are thick/curvy or not. They focus on skin colour.
She told me that in some parts of the South, AAs openly say that dark skinned Blacks are dumber than light skinned Blacks, because over the years light skinned Blacks got a better education.
She told me that dark skinned AAs don't get voted for by AAs and she said AAs on a jury would give a dark skinned Black person a tougher sentence than a light skinned Black person who commits the same crime. She said colorism is a serious problem among AAs.

It's not my mindset... I think Lupita is beautiful. But darker women genuinely have a harder struggle for approval.

Skin tone and judicial outcomes.

Black women who were perceived as possessing a light skin tone were sentenced to roughly 12% less time in prison than those with a dark skin tone. Being thin, convicted more recently, not having prior convictions, and not being convicted of robbery or homicide were also correlated with shorter sentencing durations (approximately 32% of variance in the data).

Black women who were perceived as possessing a light skin tone served roughly 11% less time in prison than those with a dark skin tone. Being thin, convicted more recently, not having prior convictions, not being convicted of robbery or homicide, and not having disciplinary infractions while in prison were also correlated with less time served (approximately 28% of variance in the data).

Black women who were perceived as possessing a light skin tone received considerably more lenient sentences, and spent considerably less time in prison, than other black women. Other possible mitigating factors considered in the study cannot explain these results in their entirely, and a statistical analysis suggests that data outliers didn't alter the fundamental results.

In summary, being perceived as more white is correlated with significant judicial leniency among recent black women prison convicts in North Carolina.

TRUE! When it comes too race in the media, I usually overlook this stuff. What I care about the most is some of the music and the movies. All the other stuff is obvious Eurocentric PROPAGANDA and some other mess.

There are subliminal messages too that permeate this society.

Yup! That's why I said and 'some other mess'. I believe Lauryn Hill & David Chappelle about their experiences in Hollywood. I can't see PPL who have a passion for music or their craft would just walk away, even being admired by so many.

Do you believe subliminal messages were used effectively in antiquity? I do.

I also believe that a lot of that stuff from ancient times is still not known by us today. Those people were highly advanced indeed.

I have read subliminal messages are NOT very effective but I feel they can be used to determine how conscious a population is. PPL who can see subliminal messages obviously have a good perception.

I am Black, African, and straight. I don't think she is pretty. By West African Sahelian male standards, she just does not have the body. I have seen many many many much more beautiful black women who are even darker than her in countries like Senegal for instance.

She just is not good looking period. There are beautiful and not so beautiful in every skin colour. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. But my missile would never go hard for her.

I've always thought subliminal messages are hidden messages often unrelated to what is being displayed.

This wouldn't be subliminal message, that is desensitizing.
