Be sure and explain this to me if you understand it all. Yikes! This is the most convoluted article I’ve seen in a long time. Or maybe it’s just me. Too many pills at bedtime etc.
Naturally race just has to come into the picture.
First, some group claims it’s race that is keeping members of their group out, then they say it’s all crap anyway. If that’s the case, why should they care?
Well anyway, have fun with this one and please note, it is not listed under eye candy.
I think I need to add a new category to our list. Call it total waste of time. Something like. I think this is mildly amusing but I suppose there are folks who take the whole thing very seriously.
‘White as snow’ Miss France beauty queen gets caught in racism row and catfight with previous winner
· Ethnic minority group bemoans lack of black and Arab contestants
· Miss France Company MD refuses to allow bitter rival to interview winner
· Newly-crowned queen Marine Lorphelin reveals her plastic surgery past

A newly crowned Miss France beauty queen has become embroiled in accusations of racism and a catfight between previous winners just days into her reign.
The Representative Council of Black Associations (CRAN) denounced medical student Marine Lorphelin, 19, for being ‘as white as snow’ and criticised the lack of black and Arab contestants.
The organisation labelled the contest outdated and an insult to the country’s ethnic diversity - but the attack has prompted an angry backlash from Miss Lorphelin’s supporters.
CRAN president Louis-Georges Tin said in a statement jointly issued by Miss Black France creator, Fred Royer: ‘The failure to represent the contemporary French population in an event such as this is obviously serious.
‘It amounts to denying the very existence of French people of African origin.’
But Didier Maisto, editor of Lyon Capitale, a website based in Miss Lorphelin’s home region of Burgundy, told The Times: ‘These types of comments, which are violently anti-Republican, seek to set French people against each other.’
The victory was followed days later by a mixed-race contestant, Auline Grac, 21, winning the dissident competition Miss Prestige.
Miss Lorphelin was due to appear on the Faut Pas Rater Ca talk show on public television station France 4 to be interviewed by Elodie Gossuin - who won Miss France last year and is a supporter of Miss Prestige.
But Miss France Company managing director, Sylvie Tellier, who won the pageant in 2002, refused to allow Miss Lorphelin to be interviewed by her bitter rival.
Television executives gave in and sent Miss Gossuin home despite accusations they had failed to defend editorial independence.
Miss Lorpehlin was instead interviewed by presenter Isabelle Morini-Bosc, who asked her guest about a small scar on her nose.
She replied: ‘You noticed it. It was plastic surgery. I had a little crust on my nose when I was adolescent and it wasn’t very beautiful.’
Miss Lorphelin saw off competition from 32 other finalist - eight from ethnic minorities and six of those from France’s Pacific and Caribbean territories - to win the crown last weekend.
The CRAN statement added: ‘In the antiquated world of Miss France, blacks apparently can only come from overseas departments.
Amazing isn’t it, people trying to tear down the white man in any way possible.Now where have I heard that shit before? Oh Ya, Obama 2008,Obama 2012, Rahm in chicago 2012 etc etc. At least we don’t have a monopoly on this crap, its a universal chorus of “WE HATE WHITEY”. I now return to my regular browsing habits.
