Black Women Are Ugly


If it's racist to say Black women are ugly compared to Whites and Asians, why is it not racist to say that Black men are better looking than Whites or Asians?

'Black women are ugly' - Outrage at Satoshi Kanazawa's racist science blog on Psychology Today

"BLACK women are less attractive than white, Asian and Native American Women. And there's scientific proof."

Website Psychology Today has been accused of peddling racist, psuedo-science when it published the above claims this week in a blog by controversial evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa.

Kanazawa's post, which the website took down after a huge backlash, argued that black women were less physically attractive than other women and that it has something to do with testosterone and genetic mutations.

He wrote on Monday in his regular blog, The Scientific Fundamentalist: A Look at the Hard Truths About Human Nature:

"Black women are on average much heavier than nonblack women. However, this is not the reason black women are less physically attractive than nonblack women ...Because they have existed much longer in human evolutionary history, Africans have more mutations in their genomes than other races."

Kanazawa, who teaches at the London School of Economics, attempted to justify his theory by dressing his post up with colourful bar graphs and lots of stats.

However, the entire study appears to be based on the perspectives and opinions of adult respondents, although Kanazawa reports his findings as objective facts.

Kanazawa's article caused a huge backlash and drew accusations that he and Psychology Today were peddling racist nonsense. At first Psychology Today tried editing the headline but then it took the post down.

The site's editor-in-chief, Kaja Perina, did not apologise for the post but put out this statement: "Our bloggers are credential[ed] social scientists and for this reason they are invited to post to the site on topics of their choosing. We in turn reserve the right to remove posts for any number of reasons."

Kanazawa has form. Other posts in his blog include: Are All Women Essentially Prostitutes?, If Beautiful People Have Daughters, Why Do Posh and Becks Have Three Sons? and More Intelligent People Are More Likely to Binge Drink and Get Drunk.
