I understand completely what you are saying. I hope you are asking us and not telling us that you think those women are more beautiful. Anyway, I think that every since slavery society has kind of embedded in our minds that the lighter skinned you are and the closer you look to being white means you are more beautiful. Halle Berry and Beyonce are 2 beautiful black women, but we have to admit that they do not both have the "typical" physical features of black women such as the hair texture, nose, or full lips. I do believe that if they did possess those characteristics they would not be as popular as they are today. You think they'd give someone like Alfre Woodard roles like Halle Berre? And she's an incredible actress. Do you remember when Vanessa Williams was crowned Miss America? A lot of black people (not myself) thought that having her as the 1st black woman to win the title was not a huge accomplishment, b/c she didn't represent the "normal" black female like the ones you showed in those pictures. As for myself, I thought that it was awesome that she could be the first to win the title. However, I still understood why some people thought what they did. Anyway, it's a lot to do with how society wants us to see ourselves. What is "accurate" anyway? We shouldn't let society determine that more us. Black women come in all different skin tones and body types. We are all beautiful. It is true though that society's view of an "accurate" black woman would be the ones you have shown. It's very sad though. Just so Boo knows Halle Berry is considered a black woman. Because so many white people during slavery thought to be black was so bad, they decided that 1 drop of our blood makes you black. And I'm sure Halle Berry has more than 1 drop of it. She has also stated in interviews that she identifies with the black community and that she is black indeed.
