Basically, I understand that there is an international standard of beauty which is all about promoting white looks. I don't look very white at all and I wouldn't change it for anyone's approval. I really love my skin color and my hair type. It's kind of my mission to prove to others that you don't have have white looks or be a whitened up ethnic person in order to be beautiful and sexy. I also just want to be that dark skinned black chick that makes some ignorant, small minded people think 'Wow, she's really pretty. I'm an idiot for thinking that dark skinned black girls like her couldn't look that good.'
So, any suggestions on how to make this happen?
I've kind of already started by working out; getting toned, making my already small waist look very tiny yet making my big butt look very bubbly. Because I know that black women can have body types that are difficult for other women to get: small waist/slim with curves. I'm also growing out my hair and I only wear it naturally. Apart of this process is showing how natural African features can be hot. I take vitamins that make my skin glow and use skin milk. What else can I do? Your overall opinion on this topic?

I feel like as a white woman anything I say here could be spat back in my face as derogatory or racist or offensive but please understand that I don't mean it that way. I'm not soloing black women out, or treating them as a different species or something I'm just trying to compliment you and I'm not sure how to do that with out thinking that I sound like an awful person so try to bear with me.
I don't know why there is this standard of white as beautiful because it's complete bullsh*t and it's destroying cultures al around the globe but I love seeing the natural beauty in any race. Black people have cultures that are so unique so rich, so vibrant that squashing them with this dominating whiteness is heartbreaking. I find black women who accept their bodies, their skin, their hair and celebrate who they are and don't try to meet stupid white standards stunning. I am blow away by the power in the look, by the strength in that choice. I've always admired other races for their drive, their perseverance, their courage in the face of all the awful things and discrimination they face in America, despite what we advertise. It is truly amazing.
I'd say start with your hair, there was a movement I discovered recently for black women to keep their hair natural, let it grow, I find (and I'm sorry if I'm not using a more correct term here) afros on black women to be so beautiful, and sexy. It's such a cultural hairstyle that's unique to blacks and it's really beautiful. As for your body? Look up your culture, look up where you're from and learn what the women there are like, what the women there consider beautiful and follow that. Tiny waists large hips and large chests are a very American (and maybe European?) thing. I'm not sure if it's the same in non-white cultures but I know that the only way you can find out is to research. Be confident in your body and who you are but also add in a bit of your culture.
Depending where you're family (or you) is from see if you can learn the native dialect or language, embrace who you are.
I respect you so much for empowering yourself like this. I wish I could be half as strong as you are, right now. You really are amazing, and beautiful and powerful and don't you ever forget that.
