Baby got back AND higher self-esteem!

A nationwide study has found that heavier set African American women are actually happier with their bodies than most average-sized or thin Caucasian women.

The survey by the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation interviewed 800 women across the country to discover 66% of overweight or obese black women had high self-esteem, while only 41% of skinny white women could say the same!

Although they love their curves, 90% African American women revealed in the survey that they thought living a healthy lifestyle is more important that religion, career and marriage. 28% were also more likely to insist that being physically attractive is "very important", while only 11% of white women could say the same.

The average Caucasian participant was more likely to agree that being physically attractive is only "somewhat important."

Do U think these findings are actually representative of all black and white women across the United States?
