Why Are Indians So Color Conscious?

This is an open question, rather than a post.

Why are Indian men so color conscious in their choice of sex partner? Other than east-Asians (face), I find well proportioned young women of all races attractive.

I could care less if the woman was black, white, hispanic, east-african or some mix- as long as she was hot and not fucked up in the head.

    I could care less if the woman was black, white, hispanic, east-african or some mix- as long as she was hot and not fucked up in the head.

    i’m rarely attracted to black or even part black chicks. with respect to even the ones i find attractive, i can usually find a non-black chick (white, asian, indian, latina…) who is much hotter for my taste.

    is this due to nature or nurture or both? i could probably find some old gnxp post that addresses whether there’s a suspected nurture component to our sexual attraction.

    the south asian caste system certainly predates british influence.
    are there a lot of bollywood actresses who are darker than the average indian? why not?
    are there a lot of telemundo/univision actresses who are darker than the average latino? why not?
    are there a lot of black porn stars (relative to white or even asian porn stars)? why not?
    do a lot of american men go to russia or the far east to get foreign brides?
    do a lot of american men go to the caribbean to get foreign brides? why not?

    as far as i can tell, there’s really not much demand for west african descended black chicks among non-black men anywhere in the world.

    again, it’s a separate discussion about whether this is good or bad (or neither).
    also, i don’t want to lump east african black chicks with west african ones. most guys would agree iman is hot. this is her half american black daughter, zulekha:

    this is iman’s half white daughter with david bowie (first picture):

    wow. the half american black daughter is visually disgusting compared to iman. enough said.

    also, i don’t think this argument should be distilled down to ‘color consciousness.’ that’s what some white people and some black people do to discuss race issues or sexual preferences. in reality, the argument is about skin color and other factors, including facial morphology. this includes traits like nasal width, nasal length, lip thickness, hair morphology and texture, eye color, hair color…

    i only point this out because i truly think that the interest or disinterest men or women have to looks is a more complicated question than the soundbite of ‘skin color.’

    Not east asians? That’s my highest rated ethnicity.

    Beats me. In college, I knew a dark-complexioned Indian chick who had an amazing body, and most guys on campus, Indian or not, were drooling over her. But, she had a steady boyfriend, who was white. My sister in-law is fairly light, but out of shape. I do find it amusing that know Indian men are starting to feel the pressure to be light-skinned now.

    i’d want to know how dark she was and how hot her face was. i am not completely ruling out the idea of indian guys drooling over a dark skinned indian chick. it’s far less common than if the indian chick is pretty and light featured though.

    also, guys have a much lower threshold for wanting to have casual sex with a chick than for wanting to settle down and provide long term financial/emotional support for a chick. many indian and non- indian guys might have wanted to bang her once but wanted little more from her in terms of a long term arrangement. i’ve definitely been in the former situation with chicks at times. not a big deal for a a lot of guys nowadays.

    The reasoning behind why face is the most important attribute is that the body can be molded like clay within some limitations, but there’s not much one can do about one’s face (except plastic surgery).

    Pale skin is a status indicator, and for whatever reason I am just turned off by dark skin. I think there is something intrinsically beautiful about light skin, like it’s an objective metric of beauty.

    This notion of fair skin being beautiful is a relatively recent import.

    In ancient times, we see Rama and Krishna who were very dark skinned considered quite desirable and handsome.Ditto with Draupadi who was renowned for her beauty.

    In Ajanta and Ellora paintings, we notice that the servants are often more light skinned than the royalty.So this was not even a class thing- fairness being associated with the nobility among Western and East Asian as they didnt have to go out work and get tanned in the process.Of course these days a tan ,especially for ladies is desirable as it denotes a lot of free time and therefore higher status!

    It seems that this preferance for fair skin arrived with the Central Asia invaders-pre Islamic Huns,Scythians and Gurjars and the post Islamic Arabs,Iranians ,Turks and Mughals.In their poetry and prose one notices a definite association of beauty with fair skin and a contempt for dark skin.Such attitudes were mostly imbibed by the subject Hindu populace.

    The British of course made things considerably worse.

    Current fetish for fair skin as seen can be blamed on the British and Central Asian colonialists who imposed their standards of beauty on us.

      If you read the book The Bible of Aryan Invasions by prof. Uthaya Naidu, we see this skin color prejudice with the very first Aryan invaders in 1500 BC.

      They killed most of the population in Northern India and enslaved the rest. This was the basis of the caste system based primarily on skin color (varna) and secondarily on occupation (jati). Subsequent invasions by Central Asians and Iranians only reinforced this tendency. The European colonial powers, while they certainly didn’t help in this regard, instead found this system of institutionalized oppression so inspirational, they copied it in running their own colonies.
