Miss JAMAICA + her AFRO was robbed of Miss UNIVERSE title

This year , Miss S. Africa, Demi-Leigh-Nel-Peters took the crown at this year's Miss universe pageant, and while the 22 year old is celebrated worldwide, one look at social media  proves many believe , Miss Jamaica , DAVINA BENNETT , should have won the title.

WOMEN of Color competing in pageants , while rocking their natural hair  ..... ( minus the perms , weaves and straight hair )   .... is an empowering deviation from what we are used to seeing from contestants  who choose to compete.

Many critics believe  BENNETT the JA, the second runner up , for Miss Universe , who showed off her natural Crown with grace ,  and confidence and displayed such poise and intelligence , many question if she was robbed from the Title.

Despite these results: tastes are changing to expand to all races. Thanks Heaven!

Now, as for measuring outer beauty alone - or measuring anything at all and select it as the best - I am not keen on that. So I do not watch the beauty contests.

Dancer I see it her hair looks like a birds nest  this girl will regret wearing her hair line that . She would have looked much better with natural twists or even cornrows even those people who travelled on the empire windrush  will never dare wear this kind of afraid again unless softened. The roots maybe hurting  but she got strong nice hair but poor choice of natural hairstyle So many other natural  West Indian hairstyle could have enhance her looks much more.

When she look back at the pics she  will regret. A few nice  zigzag cornrows or ghana  twist front only would have still been natural  Aa whats the meaning of all that . She should not have worn make up then  natural afro is not for everybody  lol  lol

The woman is stunning! Natural African Hair is gorgeous. I wear my hair naturally and will never change it. We black women have struggled with this issue for decades now as the European concept of  beauty dominates. We have begun to assert ourselves and this is very good for the younger generation.

Why once in awhile. Then of course, you are not a good- looking woman so you have to wear the fake trimming so you don't turn anybody off!!
