    Default Row over 'white as snow' Miss France

    A black rights group on Monday slammed the latest Miss France competition for producing a "white as snow" winner from a field it claimed was unrepresentative of the country's ethnic make-up.

    Marine Lorphelin, 19, a brunette medical student from Burgundy, was on Saturday crowned Miss France 2013, having edged out Miss Tahiti, Hinarini de Longeaux, in the final round of judging.

    Louis-Georges Tin, the president of the CRAN (Representative Council of Black Associations), on Monday lamented the lack of contestants from France's African and north African communities.

    The audacity these non-european immigrants have is just astounding. Can you only imagine the outrage if European women in parts of Africa wanted to have their own pageant, let alone complain about a black winner being "too black"?

    This blatant double standard has got to stop. Only a matter of time before this lunacy starts happening here.

    You might ask Santy for a book about French history.
    Failing that you might book a holiday in one of these French destinations

    Isn't "France" defined by the French state as including various places in Africa, Carribbean and the Pacific, where the comely maidens have darker pigmentation? I note the runner up was Miss Tahiti as support for this.

    I dont understand your gripe. Why dont you identify the root issue here.

    It is already here

    Trinity Student Wins Miss Ethnic Ireland Beauty Pageant

    Irish girls would not seem to be welcome, it is goes against integration to the hilt.

    Is there an indigenous beauty contest? that would be slapped down in a second and the organisers charged with some some kind of PC racist rubbish.

    The black rights organisation, their hypocrisy and their double standards. I thought that would have been fairly obvious.

    Don't bother. Not much to look at.
