Butcher of blondes

Abiola comments on the murder of a British hostess by a Japanese tycoon and launches a broad-side at Steve Sailer's Is Love Colorblind article. As I've noted before, this is a topic where everyone has their own opinion, and of course, their opinion is the conventional perspective of the whole human race, but I thought I'd point to Abiola's piece, since this is a topic of some interest even if I'm not brave enough to really take any particular position. But, I will say this, years ago I saw a documentary on the divide between light-skinned blacks and dark-skinned blacks on PBS. One of the individuals, a dark-skinned woman who was attractive, if not smoking, commented, "Doesn't matter if they're fat, pimpled or have an ugly face, as long as they're light-skinned." I suspect some brunettes could paraphrase that, but switch it to "as long as they're blonde."
