Considering all the negative rhetoric questioning black female beauty (Satashi Kanazawa’s “Psychology Today” article comes to mind), I want to point out the amazing beauty of women of black African descent in the 2012 Olympics track and in other track and field competitions.
To those who say these athletes “have other races in them,” well, what are black Americans and black Caribbeans then? People of black African descent who, for the most part, have some degree of white and Native blood.
With that backdrop in mind, here is my tribute to my strong, pretty, accomplished sisters of track and field. Please visit my photo gallery on Pinterest “Like” the page if you agree that these women are strong, driven and very beautiful: http://bit.ly/MALENt
