  1. Who these days seriously would fund these beauty competetions?

    It looks like some people are not happy that she won. That it should have been the girl who served in the army. But seriously, since when have beauty competetions been based on who is better qualified and who has served their country better/ who is more intelligent or likely to be a role model for women and girls? Seriously. Now it becomes more important. Why?

    Anyway i am so over these beauty peagant competitions. They are always superficial.

  2. well, is this a new day?… a time where black folk are truly accepted and looked upon as ‘English’ really?… no more go back to your own country, is this a sign of the times and how things have changed, or is this a false dawn, and she got bring in cos she is Linfords fam, linford being one of the country’s favorite black folk, or is it all a show, to make us finally feel accepted but really, ain’t nothing changed you can still hear it under their breathe and see working its way in the work place. like i said I’m baffled, lol

    but good luck to her though, I guess this is some good news 😉

  3. I feel like it was all about political correctness, oh and the olympics are coming to london too, a very good look.

  4. Errrm I really didn’t know that beauty pageants were still going on in this country. It’s so 90’s.

    CONGRATS to Rachel though …….
