  • Is Puerto Rico ‘racist’? Online comments about new Miss Universe spark discussions

    When Adelaide Liverpool Castro grew up in her native Puerto Rico, she did not have a black woman outside of her family with whom she could identify. Thinking about the Miss Universe competition, she remembered how it was full of white women with straight and blond hair. However, the popular beauty pageant was something she traditionally watched with her grandmother. ~ snip ~ On Sunday, Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa was crowned the new Miss Universe, beating out first runner-up Madison Anderson Berríos , who represented Puerto Rico in the pageant. Tunzi is the first black woman to become Miss...

    CNN ^ | 12/09/2019 | Kendall Trammell
    For the first time, top beauty pageants — Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, Miss America and now, Miss Universe — have crowned black women as their winners at the same time. And that's a big deal if you know pageant history. Beauty pageants early in their histories, some dating back to the 1920s, barred women of color from participating. Even after organizations began changing their rules to accept women of all races, there was still a lingering frustration and opposition to join. Only in the last 50 years have black women become more prevalent in these competitions. Janelle Commissiong was...

    mrcNEWSBUSTERS ^ | Dec, 9, 2019 | Karen Townsend
    Sometimes the host of a beauty pageant can provide as much entertainment as the contestants. Even a perfectly timed eye roll can leave a mark. The 2019 Miss Universe pageant aired December 8 on Fox with Steve Harvey serving as the host. Ninety women from around the world participated. Unlike some other recent beauty pageants, though, this one was striking due to the lack of controversial remarks made by the women. Two questions and answers did raise an eyebrow, though during the segment with the final five contestants. Eventual pageant winner Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi, was asked by Harvey...
