    She's Dutch/French/English on her mother's side and Mexican-Native American on her father's side.

    Edit: I also forgot Cameron Diaz (Cuban/Native American/English/German), who's seen better days, but who was very hot when she was younger, Catherine Bell (half Iranian), Kelly Hu (Chinese and English), and Kate Beckinsale (part Burmese).

    I picked "oriental" - although that's supposed to be used only for objects - like plate ware, not for people. Asian would have been better. That said Indian women have the most attractive eyes - everyone agrees to that.

    I'm Caucasian but really I rarely find Caucasian attractive - too boring. Especially large breasted blond women - could you ask for anything anymore ubiquitous.

    You cannot use Asian since Indian and Middle Eastern are also Asians.

    This is the truth, because we mostly find our significant others in our closest environment.

    Personally, although I'm not Nordic man, I've noticed that I find Nordic marks very attractive: wider cheekbones, "husky" eyes, etc.

    Or for better description, this kind of face like Claire Danes has:

    Or Natasha Henstridge or Heidi Klum type.

    But also, I shudder every time I see two beautiful ladies Khandi Alexander or Arundathi Roy:

    Race/Ethnic group isn't determinant factor. Individual impression is more important to me.

    Maybe I exaggerated. But I really donn't gravitate towards any specific race, I'm too old for that. I gravitate towards any ethnicity that provides for my interests and welfare.

    All females are good for mating, you just gotta try finding the one who's pretty and willing. I would prefer any girl at this point, at least one mildly cute.

    As with all things you must live with the choice you make, thus make it a good one.

    I think if a person is grown up with a particular type of people then he/she will like this type of people more. I think it is not his/her own race but the race of the child's surrounding that matters. Also there is an opposing factor of interest in comletely different race, from curiousity or anything.

    so how does that fit into mixed race backgrounds?, if you are 1/4 chinese, 1/4 african, 1/4 south american, 1/4 spanish, who are you going to find attractive? somebody who is that exact mix?.


    your views are bleak and simple, what matters more is what ideals of beauty you are subject to when growing up. like most people who grow up in white areas and are brought up with white idols will see that as the staple of beauty.

    but if a white kid grew up in the heart of india with the inflience of bollywood staples of beauty, that child will most likely grow up to appreciate the indian standard of beauty more, and be attracted to that more than his white ethnic roots.

    so its not a matter of just "what ethnic origin you are" it is a matter of what you grew up with and was surrounded by. and as we live in a multi-cultural enviroment in most major cities it would imply that people have a broad vision of beauty nowdays, oppose to your old views where people live with their own kind mostly.

    so yes white guys go for white women. most likely if they grew up with that understanding of beauty around them in day to day life. but like myself who grew up in a mostly black community and mixed race enviroment. i am attracted more to black women and mixed race women. even though i am of mixed russian and southern european origin.


    peace.

    ^It still doesn't change the fact most people prefer thier own race. A better analogy would be if this thread was titled, "what is the best food in the world." Most people would prefer their ethnic cuisine on a regular basis even if exposed to other cuisines on an equal level. Just as in america, people will eat different foods but their staple diet will be usually native to them even with different choices.

    incorrect on both accounts, people are attracted to what they were subjected to growing up.

    in england its documented that our fav foods are not english foods. so your theory is incorrect about ethnic foods, and james was very bleak and simple with his views. you guys seem to take into account 0 variables when making claims.

    you have to understand that most white people grew up in white areas therefore are attracted mostly to what they understood as the staple of beauty is.

    A majority of African American students polled at a Midwestern university say lighter complexions are more attractive than darker ones, according to a study conducted by researchers from two Louisiana schools.

    The results, taken from a sample of 100 students, indicated that 96 percent of the men preferred a medium to light complexion in women while 70 percent of women found light skin of value in men.

    There's only one race and that's the human race.

    This is very true, Black men do tend to prefer lighter toned Black women. But of course, White men tend to prefer darker toned White women too.

    Light skin Black women like Halle Berry, Tyra Banks, and Vanessa Williams are considered among the hottest. Darker toned White women like Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, and Angelina Jolie are at the top of that list. At least in America this is the case. :shrug:
