Psychology Today Fires Kanazawa for Remarks About Attractiveness of Black Women

by Ayvaunn Penn, Your Black World

The Japanese evolutionary scientist, Satoshi Kanazawa, who wrote the incensing Psychology Today article claiming black women are unattractive has just been fired. After removing the scientist from their staff, Psychology Today wrote ColorofChange.org, the biggest African American political organization on the web, to notify them that they fired Kanazawa.

This was not the first time that Kanazawa had angered his readers. Previously, he wrote an article saying that criminals look different than non-criminals. He specifically commented on O.J. Simpson. For incidences such as these, readers emailed their concerns to Kanazawa directly instead of his editors. His latest article about black women being unattractive, however, lit Psychology Today on fire with 75,000 men and women of all races emailing the editors, calling in, and announcing their fury on social websites such as Twitter and Facebook. Psychology Today has also announced that they have new rules to prevent staff writers from releasing inappropriate content in the future.

  1. I really want to differ with Satoshi Kanazawa that Black women are unattractive. I have seen some Asian women really unattractive too. In fact I have seen very few Asian women with beautiful legs and teeth. I lived with one for two years. I did not see her any different from other women. However, on several times she would tell me that White males think Asian women are a delicacy. That statement surprised me. Maybe that is reason many married rich White males vacation in Japan and Malaysian countries to quench their sex drives with Asian women. However, I have had opportunity to observe women of different national origins and have found women of all colors and background no different from one another. As a whole all women are attractive. I believe Satoshi Kanazawa was radicalized when young to regard Black women unattractive. Sorry for Kanazawa. He must get treatment.

As a whole all women are attractive. I believe Satoshi Kanazawa was radicalized when young to regard Black women unattractive. Sorry for you Kanazawa. Get treatment.
