This article asserts that physical appearance, especially being attractive, is a valuable and prominent asset in many situations of human interaction. Individuals judgements of others’ appearances are linked to body sizes which are depended on and influenced by a complex set of social and cultural values and norms. Thin bodies are appraised as they are in line with beauty norms while overweight bodies are stigmatized. The authors analyze the relationship between body weight, race and notions of attractiveness. They hypothesize that on various dimensions of attractiveness, white girls and black girls will be ranked differently based on body weights. Data for this study was drawn from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health with a sample consisting of 5947 white and black girls aged 12 to 18.

The researches hypothesize that African American women may not internalize the Western conceptions and standards of beauty and attractiveness compared to Caucasian Americans. The study conducted included 160 participants (80 African American; 80 Caucasian American) which were recruited from newspaper advertisements, churches, and community-based organization in Washington DC. The Model Rating Task (MRT) was used in this study to measure the height and weight of the participants. Results show that 81.7% of the participants that were underweight and normal weight were Caucasian women, whereas 69.0% of the participants that were overweight and obese were African women. Both groups shared similar conceptions of attractiveness. Contrary to the hypothesis, African American women viewed thinner and slimmer girls as more attractive, t>GET ANSWER
