Kanazawa’s Satanic Study on Unattractiveness of Black Woman

Some so-called scientists sometimes behave as if they are gods. They manipulate research processes; they deliberately tailor and guide the outcomes towards hidden agendas. They then publish such findings in research journals and blogs. That is the route used by controversial scholars in their academic exercises for seeking recognitions and grants.

Recently a professor in the London School of Economics, Satoshi Kanazawa who relishes his role as an agent provocateur, provokes a public outrage with a research finding he tags “Objective Attractiveness” that was published and eventually removed by Psychology Today magazine from its website. Kanazawa who is referred to as evolutionary biologist and psychologist entitled his article “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive than Other Women?”

Kanazawa, has always been criticised by fellow scholars over his provocative studies which could be tagged as his mere personal opinions than credible findings. While the student union in London have called for his dismissal from the university some respected bloggers who have studied some of his works have publicly come out to criticise his faulty findings.

Khadijah M. Britton, for instance points out recently that: “Kanazawa is a repeat offender, with years of roundly criticized and heartily debunked pseudoscience-based shock-jockery under his belt. Despite this, he is still posting on the blog of a reputable mainstream publication, still teaching at a respected university and still serving on the editorial board of one of his discipline’s peer-reviewed research journals. Though, possibly not for long: this particular post’s racist hypothesis offended many, unleashing serious righteous outrage across the internet: social media users raced to blog, tweet and even petition demanding that Psychology Today remove Kanazawa as a contributor to their Web site and magazine.”

While many could be easily fooled by academic theories churn-out from the campuses, we should be wary of accepting every research finding as infallible. It has been discovered that some researchers are not only fake but are subjective in all their methods: in determining the population, in selecting the participants for studies and in the analyses of the findings. They give figures not necessarily reliable or accurate statistics on the findings.

Since Kanazawa and his likes do not believe in the idioms that “Beauty is in the eyes of beholders” his research’s conclusions are nonsensical, unscientific, godless and outright stupid.

How could one measure and rate the attractivenness of a woman? Should the attraction be on the face, body structure, gesticulation, complexion or the attitudes? How could one determine the entire physical embodiments of a woman?

In my writing in 2002 when a Nigerian lady, Agbani Darego won the Miss World title (Miss World 2002), I did state that: The African (black) femininity, without exaggeration, enables one to mirror oneself from unblemished and fleshy cheeks. They (black women) are healthy and full of life; exhibiting enticing physiques. An African (black) woman is dark, thick and robust, devoid of a skinny, bony and tiny body frame. Artificial makeup and expensive attires are not what make the natural beauty of a black woman.”

Though I am not a scientist like Professor Kanazawa, I can rightly say like majority of people who use their senses to pass judgement that black is naturally beauty and attractive.

  • We would have asked the logical bereft professor where he got his data from and how he generated the illogical hypothesis. One could wonder the possility of such generations of wealths and the economic advancement in Britain if not from the critical labours of the blacks males and females including the stolen massive material resources from African continent.

    The professor seems to have lost his sense of historical facts that the so called world civilization and aesthetic values began in African city of Alexandria.

  • This man should not be allowed to teach any young one anymore.
    Where did he get his findings from? He just sat down to write his opinions in a scientific format and called it research when it really is what he thinks.
    He’s a bad influence that should be monitored…

  • You could be right but scientist could not always be wrong. Check your fact. while I am not saying black are not beautiful someone of them are so disgusting with their antics and behaviours especially those from West Africa. I’m pretty much sure you can do better than this on this issue. It’s already known fact that learning is beyond everything.

  • The scholar deserves all the bashing. relating ugliness to black is sinful enough. Where else can one get such rediculous finding apart from so called civilised countries. I have a mission that I’m just now working on, and I have been at the glance out for such info. This one too is very helpful

  • You are harsh on the scientists but your frankness his appreciate on the quality of black woman… So flirtery. Though I am a white woman and very proud of my skin.

  • Believe everything from academic and scholars and you could end up being a fool for ever. Bill Gate, and Steve Job are realist who knows the onion. One should have wasted time arguing with the Professor on Black woman lack of attractiveness.
