- This is a study by two psychologists using children aged 3-7.

Dark Girls: Preview from Bradinn French on Vimeo.
- And there was the research published last week by Dr Kanazawa, a lecturer at the London School of Economics. He's findings were based on a survey of white, Asian, black and native American men and women who were asked to rate each other’s attractiveness based on photographs. In his article, Kanazawa wrote: "Black women are … far less attractive than white, Asian, and Native American women."
So, other races think black women are ugly, black men think dark skinned girls are less attractive and black dark skinned women also think dark skinned women are less attractive....!!!
Err..what hope do we have then? If nobody loves us, we ought to love ourselves first. I will put up a follow up post on this later.
But for now, dark skinned girls rise! Just because somethings are the way they are now, doesn't mean they are how they ought to be. Some profound writer wrote "We never see things the way they are, we see them the way we are".
Black is beautiful, we just need to start seeing it.
