The idea that you would be surprised
any number of people find Kelly more beautiful is a problem in itself. What also is the average beauty?
With the problematic posts that started this discussion in General Messages, there is beauty in Serena as there is in Maria and likewise with Kelly and Beyonce. Serena may not fit a European standard of beauty but that does not mean she's ugly and as with Kelly, this confusion on how anyone could find them pretty or even more attractive han someone else shows problems particularly with racial perception of beauty when the standaed is European let alone colorism within the black community. Being an Asian female, I've experienced and seen stuff that took me well into my college years to accept my own and others beauty so this is a serious issue. One which ticks me off when bullshit about looks is brought up by simplistic idiots.
