A black male's response to my Hally Berry EAT post.

Halle Berry does not need to gain weight. What makes you think all black men want two hundred + pound women on their arm in public or on top of them in private? (Just because he will freak you does not mean he wants to marry you or is proud to be out in public with you). Your site has pictures of women who are obviously overweight and you promote/hype this as healthy and attractive.
Okay, the lady might be attractive, however, in almost every case she would look much better if she lost 20 to 40 pounds and she still could back it up. lol. There are some black women who can carry 20 pounds more than other women when their weight is on the lower body and she has a small waist. This DOES NOT APPLY TO ALL BLACK WOMEN. And, those who can carry the extra weight often take it too far. Instead of maybe an extra 20 pounds they are carrying an extra 50 pounds. Is it too much to ask if black men ask black women to be reasonable with their weight?
And, if you say this is too much to ask. Then how can you also complain when he dates a women who will keep her weight down. I have been to other countries with sizable populations of pure black women and the majority of them are not overweight. It is not genetic. A lot of young black girls are now overweight. Do you not recognize this as a problem? Stop promoting obesity.
