The current study investigated perceived attractiveness and personality for 600 Black, White and mixed-race faces. Many of the investigated personality traits were correlated with race when rated by White participants. Attractiveness specifically was greater for Black male faces than White male faces and among mixed-race faces. Blackness correlated with increased attractiveness. A reverse pattern was found for female faces with Whiteness being associated with attractiveness. The results are discussed in terms of the sexual dimorphism demonstrated in skin color.
black = masculine race
The blacker a mulatto male looks the more attractive he is
White = feminine race
The whiter a mulatto female looks the more attractive she is
Why Black men are the most attractive men and East Asian women are the most attractive women:
... Men tend to have a darker complexion than women do (van den Berghe & Frost, 1986). The sexual dimorphism hypothesis suggests that women with light skin tone are perceived as more attractive than women with dark skin tone, whereas the opposite is true for men (Lewis, 2011). Because Black men, on average, have a darker skin tone than White men do, they are perceived as more attractive. ...
.. The phenomenon that women prefer African American men while men find East Asian women more attractive has been reported before (King, 2013;Brack & Zhang, 2007) and could be due to perceived levels of masculinity and femininity. Indeed, the second experiment by Burke et al. (2013) found that the same African American faces were rated higher on masculinity and the East Asian faces were rated higher on femininity (see also Lewis, 2011;Wade et al., 2004). ...
This precisely explains why black women are the most undesirable women (because they are the most masculine women)
And why Asian men are the most undesirable men (they’re the most feminine men)
Also the debate is over it’s confirmed mixed-race people are the most attractive people no matter the gender
Such faces were perceived as mixed-race faces; the racial typicality ratings of 4.71 and 3.65 ratings, respectively, were closest to the midpoint on the racial typicality scale. Hence, these findings are consistent with our hypothesis and some of the previous work indicating that mixedrace faces are perceived as more attractive than either Black faces or single-race faces of different races )
Men: mixed-race > black > white > Asian
Women: mixed-race > Asian > white > black
