It is not my intention to start a race bait question. I find the that most people hold white people up as the standard of beauty. Why do you guys/girls think this is? I'm really interested in the perspective of white folks. I understand how media may have an affect but honestly, I feel it's a pretty small factor and the grander scheme.
Are white girls/guys the most attractive race?

The person known as the 'most beautiful woman alive' is an Indian actress (Aishwarya Rai if I have the spelling right) its all about proportions and facial symmetry. Google the biology behind why we find certain things attractive. White people might seem to have more opportunity to have more of these 'attractive' features (light eyes with a dark rim, small pointed nose, large round eyes)
I think the standard of beauty is changing drastically, especially in the last few years.0

I think it is not true. People can be beautiful and attractive regardless of their races because beauty is a combination of many things. Looks, intelligence, confidence, goodness , personality together make the awesome combination.3
Not sure why that is.
I guess since the white man invented couture fashion (Charles Frederick Worth), bringing in models later on... who were white... it caught on. o. O0
one of the reasons white people are considered the more attractive race is that in the 19th century, the whiter you were, the more socially accepted you were because if you were pale, it meant you didn't need to have a job outside like farming which meant you most likely were wealthier.1
if sri lankans colonized the world then everyone would see sri lankans as the most attractive race0
I dont think any race is "the most attractive" but yes white people have a good amount. Still, I think all races have "a good amount".0
No, the media has brainwashed everyone into thinking so. I personally think Latinos are sexiest men I have ever seen. Besides white people tan all the time.0
Nah there's attractive people in every race. There's people that think that way because that's all that's shown on the media white people. At least the majority are white.1
The reason why is because you probably live in America where the majority of shows and the majority of things are controled by white people since they are the most numerous of any race. some people think that Mexicans are going to be the new majority with all the babies they are having but that is simply not true. a lot of white families still have 3 to 4 babies per family.1

They are indeed attractive but I have proof they are not the only one.
YES these are south Asians who are treated as one of the most unattractive people in America.
Hot people are available in every race. Because whites are majority, everyone feels they are most attractive.5

I'm surrounded mostly by white people every day. In Hungary, people of any other color are a minority, and if you have a darker but not black complexion then they assume you're a gypsy, and there are a lot of precautions when you're interacting with them. But this is a country-specific thing.
Still, mostly I'm exposed to white people every day, they're what I'm used to, they're what I find attractive - and to top that, I even have a pale skin preference and I'm not even sure where that came from. The paler someone is, the more attractive I find them, and I don't even like tans.
That's just how my preference is, I didn't choose it.0
I don't know about that but I think reason people think this because white people are the majority I mean if you look at all the all the celebrity males Zach Efron, Channing Tatum, Tom Cruise all pretty white boys but I think with girls guys seem to be attracted to either white girls or Latinas it comes do how society views if whites are the majority then most will assume that they are the most attractive if Blacks were the majority or Latinos then people would probably think the same thing.1
There is beauty in every race.0
MEDIA is not a small factor, if i grew up in a black or Asian family/world i would find them the most attractive, however hollywood has followers from around the globe.. now wouldn't find white folks attractive?1
Well have you SEEN those girls from Scandinavia?0
I'm going to be honest
First of all, since our color is white and hair usually dark gives us contrast! Than, if our eyes are blue or green, it are a lot more interesting. Also our voices are more simplified, not so brutal like American Black voices usually are. And thats it... It's a mainstream standard of beauty as you say.
I am not racist, I don't think we are superior to other races, I think that its easier to find physical beauty in a white person. But there are a lot of other race people who beautiful0
