Miss Universe 2017: India loses, South Africa wins

A pediatric nurse’s racist tweets about white moms raising sons to be “rapists” and “killers” backfired big time

Minister in the Presidency Responsible for Women, Ms. Susan Shabangu, would like to congratulate Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters for being crowned Miss Universe 2017 in Las Vegas last night.

Demi-Leigh is the second Miss Universe from South Africa in the 66-year-history of the prestigious beauty contest.

The Minister said also that, "she displayed poise, confidence and the true Jamaican spirit during the show".

Nel-Peters says she will use her reign to champion HIV/Aids and self-defense causes.

"She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for".

The runner-up was Miss Colombia Laura Gonzalez, while Bennett finished as the second runner-up.

Shortly after walking onto the stage with her short Afro style, Twitter was abuzz with myriad complimentary comments, such as, "All of that natural hair, melanated black girl magic!", and "MISS JAMAICA'S AFRO IS GIVING ME ALL TYPES OF LIFE!" Many controversies have risen with the requirements because many believe, that just like a teacher is required to have a degree to teach students or a counselor requires a masters to counsel someone, Miss Universe should require education so the crowning Miss Universe can fulfill her global duties of educating the world on public health issues at the best of her abilities.
