'Black women are less attractive than others': Controversial LSE psychologist sparks backlash with his 'scientific' findings

What man could be so stupid as to slag off a race of women? It's hard enough for a man to find a good woman these days so why make it harder for yourself? Remember, never make a woman feel bad about herself. She'll find ways to make sure your life is hell!!

A controversial psychologist has caused outrage after publishing an article claiming black women are less attractive than those of other races. Satoshi Kanazawa, an evolutionary psychologist at the London School of Economics, attempts to justify his theory using scientific methods in an astonishing blog post on Psychology Today.

Using findings from a study of physical attractiveness by Add Health, he claims the results show that 'black women are... far less attractive than white, Asian, and Native American women. He then tries to come up with reasons for his perception of the report.

'Black women are on average much heavier than nonblack women,' he says. However, this is not the reason black women are less physically attractive than nonblack women.' Kanazawa also uses genetic reasoning to try to add some weight to his theory.

'Because they have existed much longer in human evolutionary history, Africans have more mutations in their genomes than other races,' he says.

So, having attacked black women because he says they are too fat, he then goes on to say their unattractiveness is because of mutations in their genes. to find a quiet academic post in Chile methinks!!
