The anatomy of the black woman is the epitome of true beauty.

The western nations have a monopoly of the media online and offline and they have been using their monopoly of the media to boost Western culture and to dictate the life styles of the rest of humanity and we have seen their monopoly of global commerce in most aspects of life.
Rita Dominic, a celebrated Nollywood beauty.
Western fashion is often the first choice of other cultures in the world. Africans are the worst copycats of Western culture in haute couture, airs and graces and they have even gone as far as making sloppish parodies of Western shows and desperately trying to ape the American and Western European models and status symbols. We even use Western models to judge our native beauties at beauty pageants. The closer you are to the Caucasian the more likely you are to win a beauty pageant in AFRICA of all places!
The girls and women with dark skin often feel inferior to those with fair and light skin and resort to bleaching or the fancy word toning.
The fact that bleaching or toning is very common among dark-skinned Black girls and women is the proof of their inferiority complex in comparison to those who are fair and light skinned.
The Nokia FACE of AFRICA has given more exposure to dark-skinned beauties from Africa, but they are still using the Western model of the thin beauty to judge the African girls. We do not encourage our girls and women to starve themselves and look like straw figures. We love them healthy and plump. Any African beauty pageant without plumpy women is not the true representation of an African beauty.
I have always challenged the Western notions and stereotypes of beauty by reporting and writing on African beauties even in the state of nature, topless and proud.
See the awesome black and beautiful Shaundra Denise and tell me if she is not sexier than their so called Scarlett Johansson voted sexiest woman on Earth or Jessica Biel Sexiest Woman Alive.
Most of these so called sexiest white women in the world either have flat buttocks or flabby buttocks!
The Black woman is the most beautiful woman in the world and most artists and photographers in the world have acknowledged this fact.
My African Beauty blog was created for the celebration of the natural beauty of the Black woman in Africa and show her as the symbol of Black beauty in the world.
The following book on Black Ladies is a celebration of the Black woman and we need more of such books like a photo book of Nigerian Black beauties or African beauties.
