Well I wouldn't go that far, since most of those things are based in stereotypes. Also I don't think most of the people who have these attitudes think about them so closely - I don't think if you asked nerdy guys who prefer Asian women (a common combination) why they like Asian women many of them would say because the perception of them as docile and obedient is less intimidating to them. It's more like just an automatic response I think, if you asked them what they thought about Pashtun or Persian or Arab or whatever women (just throwing some "Eurasians" together there) they'd probably have a different automatic response based on stereotypes of those people.So a Eurasian woman present the ideal. Western appearance with Asian personality.
I wonder what happens if she looks very Asian, but with a western personality. . .
I didn't say that those people I was talking about who denigrate the way black women look are doing so consciously, in fact I'm petty sure it's subconscious. You're misunderstanding what I said.Cover3 said:Part of it may be racism, but the most utter disrespect towards black women sadly often come from their own race, so there's def. a cultural problem at play here, as opposed to some massive amount of white people consciously congregating ideas and putting down / insulting black women as a group.
I doubt the validity of your statement that the worst of it comes from other black women, but even if its true I don't think it's my place as a white man to tell black women what their problems are and how to solve them, ESPECIALLY in this context.
