        Are blacks enamoured with white women? Any more than other women? Any more than other people are? I dunno... Personally, I'd pass up Fay Wray, Jessica Lange, and Naomi Watts, in their primes, for Angela Bassett, right now.



      Quote:
      Apparently black males are enamored with white women. Black males are twice as likely to marry white women then black females are to marry white males. On the other hand, white males are also five times more likely to marry asian females than black females. As to why, I'm sure it's various reasons. There is are prevalent trends for black females to look more "white".



    Quote:
    That doesn't really say what you're making it say. Only about 10% of black men are willing to marry non-black women. The rest are marrying black women. So, the preference remains their own ethnic group.


I'm not making it say anything. I simply stated that black males are enamoured with white women. There there is a strong correlation between bm/wf then the inverse of wm/bf. I even pointed to another strong correlation between wm/af. I didn't say they were "more enamoured" with white women over black women. I stated no comparison there.

Just thought it was worth pointing out.

Obviously same race marriages (and relationships) would be the most prevalent in this situation. So I would certainly agree with your last statement.

      Personally, I love the theory that children of mixed marriages are more likely to be attractive. Halle Berry anyone? I'd also pretty much take the more attractive option when it comes to women, regardless of race.

    This sort of thing is really one of my pet peeves. There are equal shares of beautiful people across all ethnic groups, and their combinations. Yes, Halle is beautiful, but so are Angela Bassett, Kenya Moore, Jada Pinkett Smith, Stacey Dash, Aisha Tyler, etc.


Why exactly are you peeved? Again no one is saying that there aren't attractive white females, or attractive black females. It's simply a theory that children which are products of mixed marriages are more likely to be attractive.

There have been studies over the subject, even books written about it.
