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The organisation labelled the contest outdated and an insult to the country's ethnic diversity.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

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.
She reminds me of another French Girl, who was named Leslie Caron.
This racism s$$t is getting ridiculous. I mean, who cares, other than ugly liberal nags who fell off the ugly tree and hit every damn branch on the way down. The ‘power’ these people have is based on our fear.
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.
How do they KNOW she is not from Africa?
They are ASSUMING based on mere skin color.
black Miss America
black bike week
black schlorships funds
proud to be black\
the list is endless
now white TV
whites schlorships funds

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
Did anyone tell her that the “peek-a-boo window” in the middle of her outfit makes that area appear hairy?
sick of hearing the left and others on our side saying African AMerican,
no whites can be African too.
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.

Well, she is French.
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
Amen. It’s a shame that Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy has been destroyed by all the race pimps, like that worthless Jesse Jackson Jr. and Al Sharpton.
“white as snow”! Not when compared to a blonde Scandinavian.
I agree. Colored people always seem to complain if things aren't just the way they want them to be.
And there ain't a damned thing wrong with that, despite the comments of the perpetually offended.
