Beautiful gay black butts

 < The black male body has been a thing of allure and mystery throughout history. The love of big butts can be seen as positive because of the healthy body image it promotes – no more are the days of the anorexic-looking man. Today’s gay men want a little meat on their men… well, at least a little junk in the trunk. Black men have been objectified as sex objects ever since their voluptuous bodies were seen as a welcome change to the bony figures of European men to whom the male settlers were accustomed. When African men arrived in America via a “free cruise” through the middle passage with their large posteriors, it was assumed that they were sex-craving, savage beasts. The view of black men as sexual predators is still seen today in both the entertainment industry and society at large
But there is nothing wrong with having a big butt, big lips, and big everything else as long as you’re happy with that.
