I was shocked this morning to read a recent article published online by Psychology Today and since pulled. The article was titled "Why Black Women are Less Attractive than Other Women?" The racism of the article was blatant and shocking obviously, but I also found the sexism of the article really appalling. The article blatently declares black women less attractive than other races, on the basis of a "scientific" study based on objective observations of a control group. How a scientific study could come up with such subjective opinions is one thing, but one must question the value of such a study being done at all. Then for a publication as widely read as Psychology Today to publish it is appalling. Please join my fan page in support of banning the publication until they issue a public apology.
A portrait in honour of beautiful black women everywhere.

A blog on art, roller derby and life.
I'm an artist and mother of two in Courtenay, BC. I've completed a project called the "Madonna and Child Project," and I'm now working on a series of roller derby inspired drawings. In my spare time I play roller derby with the Brick House Betties.
