I am a makeup artist for Mac. We had a contest at work where we would pick a model and see who could create the best makeup job. My model had a wide set nose, Very dark skin, and big lips.....she was Gorgeous:) however I was the only one who thought so My co-workers(who are white) called her Shriek, I was mortified and was so sad not just for her, but for me....To know that My race is not considered Beautiful really hurts my feelings I have always has self esteem issues with being dark skinned ( and yes that is my picture and I am dark) but I tried to shake it but this REALLY got me down.... Do you think that the dark women with Bantu features will ever be considered a sex symbol......Will the black woman with Bantu features ever be cast along side George Clooney as the Vixen in a feature film? Comments please.....
I am sure you are not here anymore, and this is hurtful, but this is why we WOMEN must create our own roles, businesses, etc in this society independent of others. We must also foster a loving image amongst ourselves.

I AM A BELIZEAN GIRL MIXED UP WITH MANY ETHNICITIES AND VER MUCH RESEMBLE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE! I DO NOT LIKE THE COMMON AFRICAN AMERICAN FEATURES SUCH AS BIG OR WIDE NOSES! I BELIEVE THAT THE NOSE IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FACE AND DETERMINES YOUR BEAUTY GREATLY!~ I HAVE NEVER SEEN AND ATTRACTIVE PERSON WITH A WIDE NOSE! LOOK AT T.V. MAGAZINES WE DON'T SEE BIG NOSES! THEY ARE JUST UNATTRACTIVE! DARK SKIN CAN BE BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT A BIG NOSE! IF I HAD A BIG NOSE I WOULD GET SURGERY!

<quoted text>lol Shriek! i think if a women or man has huge lips, big flat nose, kinky, it is ugly. beautiful ppl whether black Asian or white always have symmetrical face and there features are not too big and not too small. you should have gotten a women with an Afro, smaller nose, and medium sized lips.
I agree I hate those features strongly, and after living in the south for a while I really hat them! Perms, wide noses and even long faces I hate it and men do too!

i have to strongly disagree with some of the forum posters. I have worked long and hard in an effort to capture the beautiful essence of a wide nose on a balanced face, and put it on a ballerina statue.

I have become quite fascinated with wide noses and accept them as unusually beautiful. Some of you need to look again.

I hope one day Bantu features would be consider attractive in Hollywood. I'm getting tired of the same ole' blonde Paris Hilton look alike, that is consider the standard of beauty in Hollywood. I think the standard of beauty in Hollywood is discrimantory and racist, because the majority of people in the world are brown and black haired.

Don't care about what the media consider, they are full of racist ppl. I care about what ppl of knowledge consider and they admire the bantu features, regardless of their races...

I think Bantu women look best in African attire. Ever seen a Caucasian dressing African? Looks pretty unoriginal. I think the same phenomenon happens with Bantu's trying to dress like Caucasians (dress style, color combinations, straight hair, etc). Please watch a Nigerian movie or two to see pretty Bantu women in traditional African fashion.

Bantu is a language family. I'm not really sure where the O.P. got the idea that Bantu "features" exist. It's as ridiculous as saying there are Afro-Asiatic features or an Indo-European "look". I speak English, but I sure as hell don't like like a German.

My apologies. I was going off the original post. By Bantu I mean black African. To reply Cole T, you may be right that hoa or egyptians are more attractive "to you". You'll be wrong if you suggested an objective measurement. I'll await a valid survey to make that conclusion. Black African women are very beautiful to me.

Why do blacks always look for validation from other people, especially whites? I would not want to see a movies promoting WM to sex "bantu" women.

Oh, make your own movies.

In sweden, for example, more black women (mainly from somalia, ethiopia, and south sudan) are seen by white swedes as exotic looking and accepted in features.the have luck with men, finding model roles, and yes, i germany, sara nuru the ethiopian descent won germany's next top model. but those with kinky, wide nose, and thick lips are seen by swedes as something beautiful and precious looking. you can see a alek wek looking women walking down the street with a owen wilson looking dude and no one looks at it crazy.

Hollywood celebrates a very specific image alone. You shouldn't let some images define you since it ultimately only reflects the taste of the producer, not the country.
But to answer your question, yes it probably will. The conventions in hollywood have roots in Americas racist past. Just a few decades ago the first inter-racial kiss on TV was consdiered earth shattering. When it comes down to it, it's a matter of exposure. Many people in our nation don't even have a significant population of blacks in their local populations. Because they represent the bulk of the country, images in the media will always tend to appeal to them since they are the dominant group.
That being said, beauty is beauty. As racial issue become less prominent in America you'll begin to see more racial diversity in the features of cast memebers. That's been the trend so far, there's no reason to think it shouldn't continue.

As an African American woman (with a multiracial background)I believe that Bantu features are very attractive. I get compliments about being beautiful and having amazing facial feautures all the time from different ethnicity groups but especially Caucasian people. When I was a little girl other girls would make fun of the way I look(an oval face, thick hair,fat nose, wide and big lips, small slatted eyes and high cheek bones) and I hated myself. I believe its a great combination and happy I was born this way.
