Interesting feedback from SiT readers in regards to the "Cultural Factors, Black Women and Working Out" post from last week. (Thanks for all of your feedback-- Soton, Ghoul, Birdee, nini, qwert, and anonymous)
Something interesting I noticed among the comments, is that they touched on reasons why they felt black women were larger than other women. Some suggested the price of food, some suggested that black women are "built" different, and others suggested that maybe it was a bit of rebellion against mainstream societal standards.
I find these all to be really intriguing, partly because a few I haven't considered, but also because of my reaction to these when I first read them.
