‘White as snow’ Miss France beauty queen gets caught in racism row
dailymail.co.uk ^ | 12/18/2012 | Alex Gore

Posted on 12/18/2012 7:05:02 AM PST by massmike

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The organisation labelled the contest outdated and an insult to the country's ethnic diversity.

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.'

The CRAN statement added: 'In the antiquated world of Miss France, blacks apparently can only come from overseas departments.

'As for Frenchwomen of north African heritage, they were 'represented' by only one candidate who was quickly eliminated (too Muslim perhaps?).

'Miss France is as white as the end of year snow on the steeples of an eternal France.'

Good grief, so sick of all these sensitive people. She’s a lovely French girl. So now we can’t have a white-as-snow girl from, say, Kenya because that wouldn’t be right and we can’t have a white-as-snow girl from France because that’s also not right. So everywhere people of color might live they need to be in the limelight. Compete and shut up. These people seriously need to get lives.

I’m convinced Europe will clean house within my lifetime. This kind of thing just brings that day closer.

Miss France can’t be French? Give me a break.

Yet the last time woman of color to took home the "Miss France" title was only three years ago in 2009 when Chloé Mortaud won—a biracial woman of African American and French descent.

I wonder how many whites were even included, much less won the Miss Black France. ...no, I don't really wonder.

Boohoo.

So there were NO applicants of African heritage who applied for a beauty contest? If not, guess France should do the PC thing and pass a law.

France (amongst other European nations) is killing itself with their "diversity". Oh no! An Arab didn't make the cut! The United Nations must pass a resolution. It's not fair! Whine.

Thanks to progressives, the words “diversity” and “hurl” are synonymous.

Progressives, you can shove your “diversity” up your collective sceptic smelly Obamas.

I don’t give a smelly Obama about diversity, I’ll take folks with ability - no matter what their color or background.

Pretty much eliminates progressives, though.

she is beautiful.
Couldn;t careless abotu what anyone states but the majority of beautiful women are white, black men arab men, etc all seem to think so too.That is wy they chase them

Though one black guy did tell me why he hates black women and it was because they have bad attitudes and are lazy.

She is beautiful, stunning and she won and rightly so.

I see not many whites were in the African comps, how about them moaning about that.

Sick of this over emotion crap , everyone wants to be a victim.,
I grew up in the 80’s and we all wanted to be top dog, te toughest guy in school, we would have fights to prove ourselves and women were women.

Now boys are liek girls , or some of them are especially in the liberal areas, women act like guys and seem to not be able to say something without swearing.

Oops, read too fast. So there were no Arab contestants either? What is the World to do? Were there any French contestants with Asian heritage?

they have a Miss black France and whites are not in it but then they want to come into the Miss France and then complain they did not win or not enough of them.

Sick of this crap I really am, .

The left throughout the world have destroyed the west, we let in people who did not want to be native but instead use the country;s laws to suit themselves.

You know what they can piss off.

I;ve travelled many countries, some Asian women are nice, , some hispanics, quite a few of them for me but I spent a lot of time in northern Europe and Norway, Denmark and the women are beautiful % wise.

Do these north African men run about chasing their own , no they chase white women, the Uk has brought in quite a few black Africans and my family said who live there is that they chase white English women all the time, they ignore their own.
The white woman is a trophy for them just as blacks over here have said about white women.

translation, the racist group denounces the fact caucasian contestents were not universally EXCLUDED.

IOW the racist group is trying to say “european is racist” ala the UN conference on racism.

Beautiful girl. Too bad she's a racist pig. How do I know she's a racist pig? She's white isn't she? She won something didn't she? Ipso facto she's a racist benefitting by her whiteness over the backs of non whites.

It's now a crime to be white. To be Christian. To be male. Welcome to the NWO!

As someone whose great-grandfather left that country and emigrated to West Virginia, I can tell you that historically, Frenchmen have always been white.

There is something seriously wrong with those women? in that photo. Actually, there is something seriously wrong with anyone who supports the oppressive political system of Sharia. I always wonder where the National Organization of Women (NOW) is when it comes to the abuses of women in Muslim countries. Guess that’s why NOW has become irrelevant.

black Miss America
black TV
black bike week
black colleges
black schlorships funds
black power
proud to be black\

the list is endless

now white TV
white colleges
whites schlorships funds
white power
proud to be whites

oh that’s racist,

hypocrisy, diversity to the left is their white areas, going to a Chinese on a Friday night, having a Mexican do their yard and maybe knowing the rich one black family for their token and having as many homosexual pals as possible especially for the left wing woman who seems to use homosexual men like a handbag and fashion

What gets me most is how everyone demands. You come to a long established country and refuse to do as the Romans do, and yet you are allowed to bring your culture with you and form enclaves. Yet if the situation was reversed, you do not permit other cultures into your former country without having them completely change, or as in some areas, even face death for not changing. Can you imagine a Miss Saudi Arabia named Irene O’Hara who is of Irish Catholic decent? Its Ironic.

The day that nobody cares whether somebody thinks them racist, is the day that the race pimps lose most of their power.

here is a better one.

If we go over there to any of their countries, Mexico, iran, Pakistan,we are told to respect their culture, the way they dress etc, OK I will go along with that as it is their country.

Now the same people which state that are the same poeple which say. we need to respect their culture, the way they dress, traditions when they live in America.

HUH SO where is our respect, we respect them over there but we respect them over here, whilst they do ot respect us here or over there.

This is B/S

True, the Scandanavian types are nearly translucent. And they have clear, pale blue eyes, as opposed to the smoky slate-blue eyes that this young woman possesses. Regardless, this is about as pale as anyone from the French gene pool is likely to be.

And there ain't a damned thing wrong with that, despite the comments of the perpetually offended.

I just filled out my annual Self Assessment in preparation for my annual perfomance review.

The form is completely changed from years past.

This year there is a secion on each of 3 pages called "DIVERSITY & INCLUSION".
This is a space where the employee is asked to list "What specific actions has the employee taken to enhance diversity and inclusion at [name of company].

I filled in each box with;
"Other than interviewing prospective candidates for positions within [company name], the employee has taken no specific actions to enhance diversity and inclusion at [company name].

A french "african-american"?

This author sounds as stupid as the libtards who went to Africa and referred to all the local Nigerian citizens as "african-americans"

Perhaps. But not if they look at the people I and my team have hired in the last year. Out of 5, only one was a white male. And his qualifications were too good to pass up.
