Black Women Have Amazing Confidence

Black Women Have Amazing Confidence, Survey Shows

Blackwomen

11/9/11

Last week we loved on our hair, this week we're bringing sexy back.

Allure magazine polled 2,000 men and women from across the country in an attempt to find out "what's beautiful now."
And when African American women were asked about their personal attractiveness, "they were three times as likely as Caucasian women to rate themselves at the 'hot' end of the spectrum."

That may sounds trivial or shallow, but a little self-love goes a long way--especially in the face of those hateful reports that black women are the reason for the falling marriage rates in the African-American community.

Beverly Bond, founder of "Black Girls Rock," is trying to plant the seed of self-confidence early. Her organization helps create, reaffirm and/or reclaim that self-worth in young girls across the country.

"I want our young girls to be inspired to not settle for being less than their best selves," Bond told the Associated Press. "I want them to feel proud of who they are and who they can be and who we have been."

That's definitely something worth rooting for and thanks to this survey it sounds like we're headed in the right direction.

Here are a few more interesting findings from the survey:

  • Seventy-three percent of women say that a curvier body type is more appealing now than it has been in the past ten years. Still, when asked if they wanted to change their hips, 85 percent of women wanted them to be narrower.
  • Thirty-five percent of men and women said that, if there is one part of their bodies they'd like to change the most, it's their stomachs.
  • Eighty-six percent of men said that they wanted to weigh less—as did 97 percent of women.
  • When it comes to sexual attraction, women list their top five favorite male attributes as a guy's face, body type, smile, eyes, and height. And men's answers, in order? Face, body type, breasts, smile, and butt.

How Would You Rate Your Attractiveness?

I'm HOT!

I'm pretty easy on the eyes.

Let's just say there is a lot a would change about myself.

Not a fan!

According to dh, fat, black women have the greatest confidence and it would save millions of men the headache if all women were in touch with their star players the way bbw are. I have to admit, I've never met a bbw who didn't know she was the shit and you couldn't tell them differently! Gotta love that.

I agree. Black women in general are some of the most confident women in the world.
