I understand preference, people like what they like. But in this country that is becoming more diverse in food,music,style,friendships..Etc. Shouldn't beauty be just as diverse. I feel like America is stuck in this Marilyn Monroe period where Blondie hair,blue eyes,and ivory skin is the beauty standard. What about other cultures that doesn't fit that description. Most of the world is yellow and brown people and white people are becoming the minority in America so shouldn't the standard of beauty change favoring people of darker complexion. If god only wanted white people to be considered beautiful why didn't he just make everyone white? Why have such a variety of looks if only one look is going to be appreciated? Its really easy for white people to beat out another race when it comes to beauty because the beauty standard leans towards European looks because it was created by Europeans. If white people wouldn't have created this white washed standard of beauty don't you think that beauty would be more diverse and a people would be considered beautiful period and not beautiful for them to be that particular race. According to European standards Gisele BunChen would be better then tyra banx, miranda kerr would be better than jessica white, heidi klum would be better than oluchi onweagba, and megan fox would be better than kenya moore. but why should this be? I feel we shouldn't compare races to each other because since non European looks are so different then European looks its not really fair to compare them. what do you think about this topic?

I respectfully disagree with you. First off, I don't believe in "God" and don't believe an omnipotent being created mankind. I think that posts such as yours are just another way to keep racial differences in the forefront rather than letting them fade away. Caucasians are not becoming the minority in America. However, America is a very diverse place, which is a great aspect of the country. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and while the mass media machine may present an image of beauty based on the stereotype you suggested, if you ask an average guy his opinion it will probably be different. If you don't like what is in the media, it is easy to ignore. Personally, I find beauty in all ethnic backgrounds and greatly prefer brunettes and reds over blondes. Your post is kind of an oxymoron. You acknowledge that people have a choice and a preference, but complain that the preference may not be in your favor. Life is about much more than the endless pursuit of vanity and if you can't see that, I pity you.5
