How White Facial Features Denote Racism

via Black Pigeon Speaks

Recent research by Social Scientists indicates that men with high levels of testosterone have certain facial characteristics that set them apart from men with less testosterone.

In particular, they have what researchers call a higher facial Width-to-Height Ratio (fWHR) which compares the distance between cheekbones to the distance between the upper lip and mid brow. Men with a higher ratio have faces that appear a bit wider horizontally and bit compressed vertically.

Men with greater width-to-height ratios, the study found, had a greater urge to be socially dominant and cared less what others thought of them. They are also supposedly more prone to share their racist thoughts in public as well.
