African American Beauty

Watched The Italian Job. So-so film, $8.75. Seeing Charlize Theron punch Edward Norton, priceless!

I presume you mean 'African American' in the sense 'born in Africa, lives in America'. No recent genetically-sub-Saharan-African ancestry so far as I'm aware (though white South Africans usually have a dab of Khoisan somewhere in the background).

Not, I hasten to say, that I have any problem with African ancestry - Halle Berry, Thandie Newton, Jada what's-her-name, are all fine with me!

I followed the link to her bio...

Under the "trivia" headline where the normally list, well, trvial tidbits about the stars, the first factoid is that her mother shot her father in self defence when she was 15...

Its the presentation is surreal...

It's surreal...

Somebody take a look at Charlize Theron and tell me why anybody would be against using GE to get more attractive women like that into the world- and I'm not even as into blondes usually as most guys.

It'll be hard but humanity will find a way to cope with the new 'changes' we have wrought.

Any excuse to post pictures of women, huh, Razib?

HOT women....

Her best assets were on display in Devils Advocate. Otherwise, she's a woman with a pasty-white pig face. (That's not a compliment)

To each their own.

Razib, if you're going to post a blonde, at least post a true blonde, not a bleacher. It weakens the point. Why, even white women prefer the lighter colored hair. It's all psychological. White is right, black is dark, suspicious, and evil. These are the archetypes.
