    I’m thinking that one of the prerequisites for the ladies to enter the beauty pageant, or whatever that is, should be for them to showcase ethnic hairstyles and promote their natural beauty, as well as foster pride in their heritage. Just my two cents.

    @Angel – hahahahahahaha – you so funny. I am glad you said it and not me. That ethnicity was lost a long time ago and it is becoming PROGRESSIVE. This is what happens to a mentally destroyed people. When our people go into those EUROPEAN TYPE shows this is how they must look. The girls must get rid off or cover their wool and look like their oppressor. I must give a big hand to most of our school girls who appear to be wearing more of their natural hair especially the young ladies at Harrison College. Showing their puffs etc, with much beauty. The damage is extensive. We got young people bleaching skin and shyte while the cost of melanin is more that gold selling at US 353.00 a GRAM, more than gold. We got whyte people also injecting themselves with melanin on facebook. This is why I keep blaming the education system for our lost. There is a melanin conference yearly with the elites invited and the cost to go to the conference is above the average person reach. We are in a right state of disrepair.
