Booty Magnet: Attraction or Repulsion?

I work in Midtown KCMO, which is just about the most racially integrated this Midwestern city gets. On my way to & from Bridging The Gap, I am often approached by (usually) middle-aged black men who usually feel the need to comment upon my appearance (thems the breaks of being a white girl with a ghetto booty). The most common method of breaking the ice is for these guys is to ask me some question that is almost 100% certain to be some variant of "Has any one ever told you you're PHAT?"

For a while, I thought I was gently interrogated as such because it opened the conversation with an implied compliment which I assume men assume I will respond to with joy. But as I now have more examples from which to draw my conclusions, I have decided that black men talk to me this way because they assume that white men have no love for the big-butted ladies and that I've been wandering through life waiting for someone to admire my ass.

And I can't say I blame them. Advertising and such show the ideal white woman as being one vomited lunch away from death, and how many famous white boys praise asses the way many famous black guys have? All in all, you look at white American male culture as a casual observer and you're bound to think that thin is it. And maybe it is. Heck if I know. But either way, what's wrong with you white boys that everyone thinks you ain't go no soul?

I think white men admire the butt every bit as much as any other race does. It's just that white men are incapable of delivering phrases like "fine ass," "phat," "fly," "superfly," and even "ghetto booty" itself without sounding like the corniest cornball imaginable. We're reduced to such phrases as "cute butt," "nice ass," and "great curves," which don't sound nearly as compelling. It doesn't mean we don't like the butt. It just means we don't speak Jive.

well yes I liked soo much the women with a good boot, for example Kim kardashian, some rumors say that this women take some Viagra Online excersice lesson to get that ass, but in my case I like more the normal size, you know something like Jessica Alba...OK that ass is not normal, it's heavenly.
