I chose E.
She wouldn't have a chance, neither would a dark skinned woman or a woman with short hair like Halle.
Just like video hoes, they want 'em light skinned with long hair and pretty eyes.

I'm cool with what I see in the mirror. I long ago got over what men think, but that's one of the benefits of getting older.

Anywho, OHB, I was talking about the media and those who make the decisions about which images of Black women are acceptable. It's not Black people deciding which Black women they'd like to see as NFL cheerleaders. The powers that be don't want any images of Black women that are too ethnic. We are held to a whole nuther standard. Can't be too dark or too nappy or too bootilicious or too whatever. We must be as close to the white standard of beauty as possible in order to have general acceptance. Black men don't have to attempt to look white.

But getting back to your comment, I do think a lot of Black women do try to conform themselves to what the majority of Black men will think is attractive, and most Black men still don't like Black women with nappy heads.

I kinda disagree Mack, I think most men basically just want a woman to have her hair done neatly, whether its natural or permed.

A man can not stand for a woman's hair to be standing on the top of her head going in any direction, they just want a sister's head to be groomed neatly.

And I have seen some permed sistas as well as some natural sistas that just did'nt give a dam about their heads.

Being natural still means you have to wash and oil and style your hair, and not just get up and walk out the door with you hair looking dusty, matted and dandruff flying everywhere.

Same goes for the perm sista with the perm that has six months of new growth and thrown back into one ponytail with the sides sticking up. Or the multi color waves deal or what not, a man likes a woman that takes pride in her looks.

Maybe things are changing, but I know from my personal experience that the number of brothers that step to me has decreased substantially since I started sporting naps. Shit, when I was fatter, I got more play than I did after I was nappy. I will say, though, now that my hair is longer, I am getting more play than I did when it was 3 inches long. Rolling Eyes And, lawdy, don't let me blow my hair out because then there are men everywhere. Maybe men just like long hair. Confused Shit, I'on know anymore. Arrow

Yes that is true, but from my personal encounters of reactions to my locs... We are now becoming more aware of the value of our selves… so therefore our ideas and standards of what we see as beautiful are/have greatly changed...

When I can watch a football game and see two brothers in the majors with locks hanging from their helmets, I find this to be a major sign of the times....

Woo, I will agree with you that times are changing when I see a sistah on the sidelines shaking her Nubian ass along with her Nubian locs Laughing

MackD... I had to come back and say that the above statement is more true than US black women want to admit...

Now although many of us are changing our views... Brothers have a ways to go on the idea of the nature hair choice of the black woman... on a US tip.

Truth be told...the Non-European names and locks are found in Jerseys and under helmets ON THE playin' field...

I said this before but when a lot of brothaz becoming millionaires in the few avenues available to them (sports, music) they use the opportunity to really express their black selves (nappy heads...braids...locks...cornrolls...etc)

Sistaz in a similar position, on the other hand (use the opportunity to emulate white bitches even more (get rail thin..."best" perm money can buy...etc..)

Look at Oprah, (Ex) Queen Latifah and now even the William sisters....a damn shame....

[quote="amethyst"]I'on know about the hurh part...but what about a sista with some meat on her ol bones. Confused[/quote]

Thank you Amey that's what I for one would like to see.

I voted good because I think a sister with braids or short CUTE locks (not looking like Buckwheat I might add) could make it.

[b]Due to the simple fact that I had nothing better to do than prove that I'm fucking right[/b] and also that I possess a better grip on reality that most of ya'll I went to each and every NFL team's website to document my suspicions regarding the preponderance of permed Sistaz cheerleading in the league and (to the the best of my ability) here are the findings:

I said "not good". If she has long locs that can swing in the wind she got a chance....maybe. But other than that, a natural sista can forget about it. Confused
