I have read this article over and over trying to figure out how the cover page has anything to do with the content of the article? With that being said I would also like to know where the information was gathered to write the assumption that nobody likes the black girls? You know what happens when you ASSume?! I am extremely offended with the cover page and the message that it sends. Its seems as though your statement was more of an opinion and less of educated researched topic of discussion. To be completely honest it is a reality check for those people who believe that we have made so much progress and that racism doesn't exist. Well your cover page just made it painfully obvious that the color lines are still present in 2012! To the author of the cover page I would invite you to take your blinders off and realize that there are more non-black men who are interested in black women than you may think. Let me also refresh your memory to slavery times when there were more slave owners who were trying to get a lot more than a good servant from the women he purchased.

I read this whole article as well, and didn't see any point to the blurb on the cover that said nobody likes Black girls...This upset a lot of my friends yesterday on FB, including me. I have many Black girl friends that only date White men or non Black men exclusively, and the majority of men that approach me to ask me out are non Black. Black women have always been hated by our society and media, yet we have so many other races plumping up their lips with fillers, tanning their skin, making their hair curly, and even getting butt implants to get curves that most Black women have naturally. I'm tired of people perpetuating the stereo type that Black women are not beautiful and nobody likes them. This is completely false. Black women are beautiful and strong women that many men are too intimidated by to approach because we are so confident. Too bad for us we're so strong and beautiful I guess.
