Kim Kardashian is the most obvious example of a phenotypically white woman who has capitalized on having a big butt. Still, there’s are a few more that come to mind.
Watching the irreversible rise of celebrities like Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian has made me ponder how some phenotypically white women are lauded for their beauty because they possess voluptuous bodies that have historically been attributed to African descent. I see the phenomenon all the time, but I don’t fully understand it—this idea that having the perfect body means having features that are reminiscent of women from around the world. We talk about beauty all the time as if it’s one big international contest, but there isn’t one and there never has been. The white woman with the Georgia Peach wins every time.
