Photographer Paul Phillips project "Beauty in Black" celebrates black women and their beauty.
*Last year, we reported on a quack scientist, Satoshi Kanazawa, who claimed that black women were less attractive than all other women in the world according to a flawed investigation he performed.
As you might have guessed, his report–printed in Psychology Today–caused such an outrage he was fired and the study retracted.
Photographer Paul Phillips protested the study in his own way (more…)
*Finally, a publication has taken responsibility for its actions…after a nudge from readers!
Normally, people talk a good game about weighing in on an issue, protesting, revolting, but this time the people really took it to the online streets and stood up against for an instrumental cause … BLACK WOMEN!!
Psychology Today admitted being in error for putting up the article they dismantled almost as soon as they posted it to their site called, “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women? Why black women, but not black men?”
Color Of Change.org, who define themselves as the nation’s largest African-American online political organization, spearheaded a campaign to have the author removed and/or an apology submitted to the public. (more…)
*Last week, an article was published in Psychology Today magazine that proposed why Black women are significantly less attractive than women of other races.
Evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa may lose his job at the London School of Economics for his racist rant backed by flagrant research.
According to reports, complaints came streaming in after the article was published and the social media world had a field day.
One student at LSE told the Guardian newspaper:
“Kanazawa deliberately manipulates findings that justify racist ideology. As a black woman I feel his conclusions are a direct attack on black women everywhere who are not included in social ideas of beauty.”
While the campus students and staff support free speech, they are outraged by the lines the professor crossed, claiming his comments fuel hatred.
The school issued a statement explaining that his thoughts and views do not reflect the ideas of the institution.
