"Psychology Today" (2006 issue)

So, i pick up a discarded free mag at the library.  The issue is 06.  The article is called something to the effect of:

"Why are we attracted to exotic faces?"

The article shows a pic of a woman, and a man named SENATOR BARACK OBAMA!

It goes on to say that the older assumptions about what humans are attracted to (people who look like them) has been disproven.  In fact most of us find the most beautiful folks to be mixed race.  That attraction to diverse genetics is hard wired in us.

I must say that from 69 to 75 i lived in a very diverse neighborhood in Baltimore called Randallstown.  I was at least 13 before i ever looked at a white boy and even remotely considered them attractive!
