日本学者:黑人女性长相更丑

  A British-based academic was at the centre of an international race row after citing "research" that claimed black women are uglier than other races。

  Dr Kanazawa, a lecturer at the London School of Economics, has published findings based on a survey of white, Asian, black and native American men and women who were asked to rate each other's attractiveness based on photographs. Black women scored lowest, Asian highest。

  The controversial Japanese academic, an evolutionary psychologist, concluded this is because African women have higher levels of testosterone than other races and therefore have more masculine features。

  Not only does Kanazawa fail to provide any evidence to support his conclusion, he fails to say how many people took part in the research and does not even mention the race of the women – for example whether they are Afro-Caribbean。

  Nor does he explore the fact that the research on which he bases his conclusion was conducted in America where European ideals of beauty dominate。

  His article, published on the US-based website Psychology Today, caused international outrage. It is not the first time that Dr Kanazawa, 48, a lecturer within the department of management at the LSE, has been accused of peddling racist theories。

  In 2006 he published a paper suggesting the poor health of some sub-Saharan Africans is the result of low IQ, not poverty。

  Tokyo-born Dr Kanazawa studied in Bulgaria and gained a PhD in Sociology at the University of Arizona. He has been at the LSE since 2003 and is now on sabbatical. He portrays himself as the scourge of political correctness and his own website carries the slogan "prepare to be offended"。

  日前一个英国学者“引用”一项研究称黑人女性相貌更丑,陷入国际种族舆论的风暴中心。

  伦敦经济学院讲师金泽博士依据某调查发表了上述结论。该调查要求白人、亚洲人、黑人和印第安人的男性和女性就照片给彼此打分。结果黑人女性得分最低,亚洲最高。

  备受争议的日本学者、进化心理学家金泽得出结论,认为非洲女性身上睾丸激素水平比其他种族女性更高,因此更具男性特征。

  金泽不仅没能就以上结论提供任何论据,而且无法列出参与研究的受试人数,更不要说详尽说出女性的种族,比如她们是不是加勒比黑人。

  他也没有说明其所依据的研究是在美国进行,而在美国欧式审美占主导地位。

  他的文章在美国网站“今日心理学”上发布后,招致国际愤慨。而对于这位48岁、在伦敦经济学院管理专业担任讲师的金泽博士,这也不是第一次因传播种族主义而受到谴责。

  2006年他就曾发表论文指出,撒哈拉以南非洲地区人民的健康不济并非贫穷,而是因为脑子不够用。

  这位出生于日本东京的金泽博士曾在保加利亚读书,后来获得了美国亚利桑那大学社会学的博士学位。他自2003年起执教于伦敦经济学院,日前正在休假期。他描述自己为“政治改革之鞭”,而他自己的网站也打出口号“准备好被冒犯吧”。
