And when African American women were asked about their personal attractiveness, "they were three times as likely as Caucasian women to rate themselves at the 'hot' end of the spectrum."

Black individuals have been found to report the highest levels of self-esteem of any racial group in the United States. The purpose of the present research was to examine whether Black individuals also report higher levels of narcissism than White individuals. Study 1 (N = 367) found that Black individuals reported higher levels of narcissism than White individuals even when controlling for gender, self-esteem level, and socially desirable response tendencies. Study 2 (N = 967) and Study 3 (N = 315) found similar results such that Black individuals reported higher levels of narcissism than White individuals on the narcissism measures that captured less pathological facets of this construct. Study 3 also included indicators of psychological adjustment and found that the pathological aspects of narcissism were more strongly associated with maladjustment for Black individuals than for White individuals. The implications of these results for understanding the Black self-esteem advantage are discussed.

Pretty firm proof that they generally lack intelligence (and taste.)

Eh, not much of a study. It doesn't really prove anything, it just says that blacks have tend to have high self esteem. Big deal. Just because you think you're attractive doesn't mean you are and just because you feel ugly doesn't mean you are.

Kind of pointless :/

Let them have their self esteem. It won't stop the fact that they are and always will be the lowest form of humanity.
