A lil dab will do you: A British study concludes that products of swirling are real purdy and successful and just plain better than folks who are plain ol’ black or white. Pop the hood.
The British regard people of mixed race as the most attractive and successful, say psychologists. Celebrities such as formula one champion Lewis Hamilton, footballer Ryan Giggs and X Factor star Leona Lewis have helped boost the image of mixed race people, according to a new study.
Psychological testing found they outstrip people who are white or black in terms of perceived attractiveness, with a rating that far exceeds their representation in British society. He says a ‘fusion’ of black, white and mixed races would lead to ‘Mr and Mrs Average’ being mixed race, resulting in people more readily identifying with them.
But there could also be a Darwinian explanation, with cross-breeding between diverse genetic backgrounds naturally leading to more genetically ‘fit’ people who tend to be more attractive.
Overall, there was a 55 per cent chance that mixed-race faces were perceived as being more attractive than either black or white faces.
But the ‘extremely attractive’ ratings were dominated by mixed race faces, who made up one in 10 of them.
This is a much greater proportion than would be expected based on their representation in British society of around three per cent, said Dr Lewis.
Dr Lewis said ‘Previous, small scale, studies have suggested that people of mixed race are perceived as being more attractive than non-mixed-race people. This study was an attempt to put this to the wider test.
Now we have the answer to: “What Can Brown Do For You?”
