Yum seems to be the only appropriate word:

  1. i've been wanting to say this for a while, but i wasn't sure how to say it, so i hope that it doesn't come out wrong:

    i know that it's an ongoing problem that black people (especially women) get short shrift on the attractiveness front. y'know, racism, colorism, etc. (ugh you remember that article a while back about how black women are just objectively less attractive? smh, ridiculousness.)

    i consider myself to be pretty equal opportunity with regards to attraction, but i love that reading your blog reminds me of how attractive black people can be (i mean, duh, just like any other race of people). like, i feel like it keeps the idea in the forefront of my mind so that no racism can insidiously creep in. i constantly find myself remarking, "goddamn he is so hot!" or "wow she is so pretty!" i love it! you introduce some variety into the barrage of images from our racist culture trying to tell me what constitutes "attractive."

    so thanks for that. =)
