I really wonder why people think this because I think the opposite. To make it clear I don't talk about white American men and african American men, talk about caucasian(Europe, usa, middle east) men and african black men. I wanna discuss about looks not how they act etc. Masculine men have square heads, square jaw lines, thin lips and more facial,body hairs that more seen for caucasian men(George Clooney, Clive Owen). Black men have round heads, round jaw lines, full lips and less facial,body hairs as all people agree. Masculine properties described in many studies and so I really wonder why some people think in the opposite way? It maybe about dark skin but it's not a male thing women can be as dark as men. This subject is not about who you are attracted or better looking, we all have different preferences. But I think mixed(black-caucasian) and Mediterranean men are the most handsome ones. by the way not all girls prefer masculine guys of course. I just tried to be objective and share what I think. Please don't get offended, keep peace

If you want to talk strictly about masculinity i.e. strength, testosterone...the works, here's my take.
Africa is kind of a rough place to live. Back when it was mostly tribal and there wasn't any western civilization, the main source of food was to go out and hunt with a spear or some similar item. And the main source of defense was fighting with a spear or some similar item. You had to be strong and able bodied to survive. In a way, selective breeding took place. In a place where physical health was so important for survival, the weaker people fell pray to illness, the elements, or animals, and the stronger ones survived. Over time, only men and women who possessed the traits needed to survive were reproducing so the African race was dominated by strong characteristics.
Now, if we were to take this to slavery in the U.S. then the same thing applies. The weaker slaves died, and the stronger ones lived to reproduce. It doesn't surprise me at all that African Americans and, in general, Africans are more athletic than other races.
I'm not sure what you were wondering, but that's why I think African men are more masculine, or have the ability to be more masculine than other races.
