White Beauty Standards for Men of Color?

01 May

Yesterday in class I found myself wondering about something I’m surprised it took me 9 weeks in this class to wonder: do white beauty standards apply to men of color? And how is ideal masculinity enacted by men of color different from hegemonic, white, ideal masculinity? I don’t have an answer to either of these questions, but I do have pictures of men for you to look at and make up your own mind!

Okay now that I’ve spent the last half an hour looking at pictures of attractive men on the internet, I’ll return to my question: how are male beauty/handsomeness standards racialized?
