If you are truley black then you will have black babies unless you're mixing the gene pool actually caucasion women are the ones that have babies of different skin tones and different shades of hair and eyes, where blacks only have wirey black hair and if they want a different shade of eye color they have to pay for it..lol..so who are the jealous ones?

Are you guys all idiots? Lol... You see this is why America and the world is so messed up, we stereotype on beauty like we ourselves don't have flaws. This type of ignorance that i've read on this blog is the reason why so many people especailly young people, have so many self-esteem issues and are so ready to be quickly put under the knife to change their apperance. Well I don't know about you guys but it seems like a bunch of people on here need to look at themselves in the mirror and have a reality check, yea its good to be proud of how you look because I believe God made us all beautifully, but also that your not perfect either. I would never tell my child or any other races child that they weren't beautiful because of a physical feature. You guys are sick and obviously lack confidence if you have to bash other to make yourself feel good..(and no I'm not talking to everyone, just those who knew they were being inappropriate)

Yes it's true first give all prasies to the African American Women God Blessed them with the whole package. Exotic Skin Tones, Exotic Features,Curves,Full Lips,Huge Butts,Huge Breast, African American Women have the Dominant Gene they can have all kids of every skin tone.
African American Women,Asian Women, And Latin Women, are The New It Factor..
White women have fallen into last place. White women have white skin,thin lips,small breast,flat butts,pointed noses and they can only have white skinned kids. White women uses black men to have kids with so there kids can look like African American Women kids with skin tones.
CNN just did an article on this today. Here's the link.. http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/09/13/ethnic.b...

Its rare that a black women wants to be 100% white and rare for a white women to want to be 100% black but both white women and black women both change so much about themselves when it comes to what you have naturally vs what you want to look like btw nothing wrong with changing if thats what you want I'm just saying as far as this ego think between bw and ww give it up

people on here are mean! I am mixed with white black and native american. And I love all that I am mixed with. I don't know why it is an argument black is beautiful and white is beautiful. I actually see more huge white ppl than black ppl. I can say that mixed or black ppl have been the it factor as far as body but I think at this point and time everyone is loving there selves for who they are. there are more diverse looking people of color than white people in my opinion

First off i believe every race is beautiful they all have certain features that are desirable... now on that note im a 15 year old girl i am african american and this is ridiculous! for america to be the so called "melting pot" people here are soo racist. i agree that we all are trying to be a mixture of races and i think thats great but the fact that all of these grown women are arguing over whos more beautiful tells me your insecure about your race. also both my parents are of a darker chocalate tone and i am lighter skin, black people can make all sorts of skin tones... this whole article makes me a little insecure as well because again im 15 and the fact that people are telling me because im black i am less beautiful than a latina girl or a white girl bothers me... the point is you all need to grow the hell up!! this isnt the 50s anymore we shouldnt have racial problems because while other countries are moving on to greater things where still worrying about whos skin tone is better.way to set an example

I`ll admit that I have an affinity for darker exotic looks, but it`s a case of opposites attract. At the end of the day, you date an individual, not a race or composition thereof. Otherwise, you also can end up dating cultural aspects which aren`t so appealing---ie, the ghetto hoodrat. Then again, maybe some white men like that as well.
