PS: don’t hold your breath for that award-winning Broadway play or HBO show about this crime. Cuz, well, you know…
UPDATE — wait, what?
Psychology Today came under fire Monday after it published a blog post by Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa titled “Why are African American Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?”
In response to the perhaps predictable backlash, the magazine softened the provocative headline by changing it to “Why are African American Women Rated Less Attractive Than Other Women, But Black Men Are Rated Better Looking Than Other Men?”
But by Monday afternoon, the publication had entirely removed the post from its website, as outcry spread.
It’s not the first time Kanazawa’s theories have sparked controversy. He drew fire in 2006, for example, after arguing that poverty in African nations was caused by the lower intelligence of their populations.
