Satoshi Kanazawa’s controversy regarding his recent Psychology Today article (removed from their site) “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?”

A snippet from his article entitled, “A Look at the Hard Truths About Human Nature” has hit the net.

What accounts for the markedly lower average level of physical attractiveness among black women? Black women are on average much heavier than nonblack women. The mean body-mass index (BMI) at Wave III is 28.5 among black women and 26.1 among nonblack women. (Black and nonblack men do not differ in BMI: 27.0 vs. 26.9) However, this is not the reason black women are less physically attractive than nonblack women. Black women have lower average level of physical attractiveness net of BMI. Nor can the race difference in intelligence (and the positive association between intelligence and physical attractiveness) account for the race difference in physical attractiveness among women. Black women are still less physically attractive than nonblack women net of BMI and intelligence. Net of intelligence, black men are significantly more physically attractive than nonblack men.
The only thing I can think of that might potentially explain the lower average level of physical attractiveness among black women is testosterone. Africans on average have higher levels of testosterone than other races, and testosterone, being an androgen (male hormone), affects the physical attractiveness of men and women differently. Men with higher levels of testosterone have more masculine features and are therefore more physically attractive. In contrast, women with higher levels of testosterone also have more masculine features and are therefore less physically attractive. The race difference in the level of testosterone can therefore potentially explain why black women are less physically attractive than women of other races, while (net of intelligence) black men are more physically attractive than men of other races.

 

Gumbumpers, please tell me what you think about this?

  1. This guy has a point and scientific evidence to back it up. He is not saying black women are less attractive but less physically attractive. I think 1 in 25 black chicks might be attractive. The ratio is pretty low if you ask me; The whole intelligence thing is also true. I am not a racist and I do not hate black people. I do however hate the attitude that many black and non-black people posses, which is that it is cool to be a thug. "Ghetto" should not be a fashion trend.

  2. I think that is some crap, first of all beauty is in the eye of the beholder and i have seen some ugly non black women and men too, Asians are ot considered attractive to me at all, they all look alike and this man here needs to go sit down somewhere because he is definetly not easy on the eyes!

  3. Does this man not know, that most race of men want us black women? Now if our race of black women, get ourselves together, and stop the hatin, we would be unstoppable!

  4. This is some BS right here. That's why his a$$ removed it, he just mad because most black women want a black man, and most asian women do to.
