I honestly, don't mind that a white woman wants full lips, round ass, and a tan. What I do mind is that they think they're better than African American, but go out and get our characteristics. I mean they should be proud of their features. They get called beautiful for being white and they go get African American features to look more beautiful. When a black girl has full lips, people are like "Eww...! Their lips are big!" But, when a white girl gets them, they go "Ooh! That's so beautiful. They're lips are pouty and full!" They don't call black girl's lips pouty. I read in a book on how the author was describing a beautiful white girl. And it said "She had a thin waist, dead eyes of a shark, and pouty, full lips." I was like "Hey! Those are black people's features!"

The reason that people consider full lips on white women beautiful is because it is unusual. Since most African American people have full lips, people are used to it. Full lips on a white woman is different, unusual, unique, and therfore more beautiful.
But I agree that the ones who get plastic surgery look weird. It's good if their lips are naturally full.

YES.. You do mind, or else you wouldn't have made this stupid thread. Don't say you're not prejudice when in fact you are. Makes you look ignorant. Especially when you generalize by saying: "What I do mind is that they think they're better than African American, but go out and get our characteristics."
'Scuse me, honey, Not everyone wants your characteristics. I NNATURALLY have big lips, big a$$, little waist..and STRAIGHT HAIR!
You forgot to mention that one huh? I guess we try look black and " go out and get our characteristics." when we have straight hair too don't we? Shut up and quit trying to keep prejudice alive. It's people like you that are keeping this war of race going.

Don't have to be rude! She was just making a statement. And I do find it a little hypocritical for them to get full lips.

And she's not prejudice. And not all black people want straight hair. I find curly hair prettier. I don't think she meant to be prejudice. She was just asking a question. And I am tired of people saying "You're not the only race who has those."

i feel that african american woman are beautiful because they have naturally beautiful features. We don't need to do anything to enhance it.

Lips thin out when you get older, so full, collagen rich lips appear more youthful. Young people make kids alot easier (or at all). Go figure as to why full lips are considered attractive by humans.

There's a lot of unnecessary racial remarks on these posts. I don't think white women intentionally run out to "look" like black women. Our society has mainstream forms of beauty and it seems that full features seem to be the current trend. It just so happens that these features are predominantly natural African American features. Women tend to follow the trends that will get them the most praise and they're not blind to the fact that celebrities like Angelina Jolie, are celebrated because they have uniquely large lips or that men love Jennifer Lopez because of her behind. Natural beauty is a thing that does not seem to celebrated as much so celebrities and every day people alike spend thousands of dollars for enhancements. My advice is just to be glad that you have these features naturally and you don't need to spend your hard earned cash to get them.(I mean that for both white and black folks.) Stop worrying about the motives of others and just learn to enjoy yourself. Also, "Cracker," you are by far the most ignorant poster here.

Cara,
Black women also do the same.
colored contacts.
color in their hair.
perms and weeve (invented and originated by white and other races - not african americans. www.google.com for reference.)
thongs (also invented by a white homosexual male)
lip gloss (also originated and invented by white race)
and a long list of others.
pimping, street code and street slang (b****, motherf***er, pig, rat, snitch, h*, sl*t, c**t, trick), hustling/drug trafficing, gun trafficing, gangster persona, "thug", and a long list of others also did not originate from african americans in America. the italians, sicilians, russians, and others are what got it started first. African americans came after.
You are one of them if you wear thongs, lipstick/lipgloss, colored contacts, put color in your hair, weeve, perm, or straightener/relaxers - though madam cj walker did invent some hair products for women.
everyone gets everything from everyone.
the oldest hoop earrings were found in Iraqi.
white and black (and others) wear hoop earrings...
and...
almost every jazz instrument was invented by white men.

And they stole the whole "mafia" thing from the Italians. So many hip-hop people are adopting the mafia thing into their own term. However, black girls get perms because they want to keep their hair in place. Who wants to have nappy hair? I certainly don't. They get weaves so they can handle it better. Maybe, the contact thing might be trying to look white and dying their hair blond, but I honesly tnink they get perms and weave to make their hair more manageble.

White, black, brown or red, we're women, which means we have much more commonality than we have differences. We want to look pretty for the same reason we decorate our homes -- we love beauty. The fact that we see beauty in various races and try to emulate some of their natural characteristics is wonderful -- a source of appreciation, celebration, a joy. Why become angry about it?

I love the elaborate braids. Unfortunately, I have thin "white" hair, dang it.

But sexy is an attitude, a healthy confidence, and an appreciation for self and others.

cara. how can you say lip gloss was invented by white race, if youd know back in africa many people used things found naturally grown for their lips. How can you be very sure who made lip gloss, there are also many black americas with naturally straight hair, im one of them, i dont need perms. You cant compare lip gloss to white americas wanting bigger lips, people werent born with glossy lips, just b/c one white american might have made it doesnt mean other races copied them
