Amply Endowed Black Women Are a Beauty Standard

It’s high-time the cognitive dissonance toward rounded hips, thick thighs, and ample derrieres on Black women be exiled to the archives of racism.



Thickness is a beauty attribute synonymous with Black Women. Black women have always been identified with and owned voluptuousness. The fashion industry and society have tried and failed at attempting to paint chunky, curvy, plus-size, big, ample, full-figured, BBW, big-boned, thick, voluptuous, heavy-set as taboo and unhealthy.

Yes, an over abundance of anything can be detrimental to one’s health but to paint ample body physique as all around unhealthy is simply wrong. Confusing healthy ample weight with obesity has been the big red herring that’s thrown a cloak over the beauty of thickness. And to attempt to label physiques of size some sort of social ill is simply biased.

Ebony Magazine is the latest in a number of entities that are heralding ample physical endowments of Black women. Get the full story at our online magazine HERE.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.

    1. Thank you seektheblog for investing your time to give the post a read and to comment. I’m advocating for a world where human dimensions are promoted for their uniqueness as opposed to being denounced because of the context they are assigned in diversity.
