It must be said that women come in all sizes, and many of us fit a positive stereotype of being large and lovely.

There is really no difference in the beauty of the two women in the illustration. If you feel something when you look at these two –if you make judgments– please know you are experiencing conditioned, cultural bias, nothing more.

There is a stark contrast between Black women’s typical largeness  and fashion’s typical thinness. This an old Roman ideal that has rightly been called anti-woman.

That’s why I’m glad for the Blackwomen’s backlash against the skin-and-bones look.

Here are websites offering different perspectives on the self-esteem and health indicators of Blacks and of large and lovely women:
