Black Women Happier In Their Own Skin


by Linda Franklin

Black Women Happier In Their Own Skin Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanBlack women are happier with their bodies than white women - even if they weigh more, well that’s what a new study says. Two-thirds of overweight black women said they had high self-esteem, compared to only 41 per cent of thin or average-sized white women.  White women could learn a thing or two from this because we are never satisfied with our bodies and go to great lengths to change them.

According to the research commissioned by the Washington Post white women focus too much on what nature has given them, while black women have a ‘deeper’ appreciation of beauty.

Flat chests, skinny midriffs and size zero are boyish.  Black women say, “we’re likely to be built generously and we’re not ashamed to celebrate our curves.”  ‘We develop our own ideas about what it means to look good, rather than relying on magazines and television shows to tell us’.  The survey found, that black women do not aspire to unfeasible skinniness when they lose weight. Instead they look to emulate Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson and Michelle Obama, all of whom are muscular and curvy.

Nothing’s perfect – and the survey also brought out this important point.  Black women are more prone to diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure because they are more likely to be obese than white women. 
The bottom line is be happy with the skin you’re in.  You have one miraculous body so treat it well and keep it healthy.  Pay attention to how you feel and know that you attract good things from a place of feeling good.
