When Cheslie Kryst won the Miss USA crown, it marked more than a personal triumph: It meant that for the first time, three black women are the reigning Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss America.

I bet it was more likely they won to show the judges weren't racist.

Can’t help but see this as a grand ‘make up’ scheme and tokenism, with scorn and insult intended for those who institutionalize this crap, not the individual contestants.

When do we see Latinas winning these crowns? Or Native Americans?

Lots of competition out there among the non-whites.

The standards of black beauty? The horse?

And all 3 women won all 3 competitions?

Journalism!

And I also recall that these competitions were offensive when Trump was campaigning.

"Black" as well as other diversifying for the sake of diversifying "happenings" are "beautiful" virtue signaling inanities amongst pop-culture, business, and politics.

Welcome to a "progressive" and authoritarian planet hell.
