    :sigh:

    You cannot make a coherent point. What are you talking about, what does that have to do with anything?!

    drunk anorexic girls what??
    That's a very coherent point. I was referring to the size zero riff-raff you see in the media that your friend seems to be basing her opinions on. E.g. Cheryl Cole.

    Basically, the media puts on show a lot of negative traits, and people shouldn't aspire to be like that.

    OK, maybe I did ramble a bit. Let me just keep more on topic and put it in simple terms then.

    Yes, the media is overtly concerned with white beauty, but what do you expect living in the Western world? I'm sure the media in an African or Asian country would be pretty different. Your friend knows she's not the ideal Western beauty, but she should also know that that's not a bad thing, at all. She just needs to learn to accept herself for what she is. That's what I mean by taking what the media says with a pinch of salt.

    But when did I mention white beauty or white people? Where do you girls get this into your head. The funny thing is that you feel like you're being smart and making a good point but in fact it is still not on topic.

    Haha I'm bored too, distracting myself from AS level revision is very appealing atm.
    Well some people think so, but I guess not everyone would say I was.

    This woman has CLEARLY FAILED at trying yo be Black. She has darkened her skin, gotten bigger lips, cheekbones and tried to get afro hair.

    So OP, White people beg too! What shall we do about those people?

    But she is not worried about her size
    ...and she doesn't want to be white.

    drunk anorexic girls... What the heck? I don't, I can't even.. :sigh:
    You make no sense, really.

    Yeah OP, can you please explain THIS: http://www.tabloidprodigy.com/wp-con...densteinBA.jpg

    Clearly a case of White going over-borad with surgery to try and be Black.

    Isn't that what you're pretty much trying to imply though? Doesn't the fact that your friend wants to bleach her skin and narrow her nose scream alarm bells? She seems to want to look "less black, more white", to put it bluntly. And you mentioned mixed race people, so assuming you meant the ones who are half white and half black, you're still talking along the similar lines of white beauty in a way, no? Correct me if I'm wrong here.

    You're rather narrow minded aren't you. :rolleyes:It was an example, of how she shouldn't obsess over how the media tells her she should look.

    I'm going to say it simply so you understand...

    It is okay for her to be black, there are attractive black women out there, and she shouldn't be ashamed of her nose and skin colour.

    No, and beauty doesn't come in colours you idiot .
    I can't even be bothered to reply further to such an unintelligent person such as yourself.

    Sorry, I don't ever call people names but, gosh you really deserve it.

    I don't think you really have the right to try and be patronising.

    and F.Y.I To show intelligence in an argument/ when making a point you need examples which support your explainations not ones which irrelevant.

    It does support my point...that the media shouldn't be listened to. Bloody hell, talking to you is like banging my head against a wall.

    :facepalm2: No it doesn't at all. It's not even on topic. Your examples should refer to the topic, anorexia and being drunk had nothing to do with the topic.

    I see your trying to get the last word though, quote me again and I won't reply back and then you can have the last word, don't want to disappoint you

    I'm not trying to get the last word, I'm explaining my point as you're clearly too dense to see it.

    The point was the media shouldn't be listened to as it portrays a lot of negative aspects of society. That was an example of negative aspects that the media portrays. You're ridiculously close minded. If you can't see that, you have problems.
