'Why is Miss South Africa white?'
Channel 24 ^ | 2012-12-24 | Lesley Mofokeng

Posted on 12/31/2012 7:28:11 PM PST by MinorityRepublican

Johannesburg - A white girl representing South Africa was the most jarring thing for some beauty pageant watchers to witness this week.

When the blue-eyed former Miss SA Melinda Bam took to the Miss Universe stage at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, she triggered a social media buzz.

Her appearance sparked an avalanche of tweets, mostly from American viewers during the pageant, which was streamed live online at 03:00 local time.

Mayhap because she is the most talented and beautiful of all the contestants?

I have a friend who is from South Africa and has white skin.

When filling out those nationality boxes she truly enjoys marking "African."

How can anyone look at this beautiful woman and ask why she's white? They chose a white woman because she is beautiful; melanin levels should not be a consideration in either direction.

Part of many pageants is the participants ability to demonstrate some talent ... singing, playing a musical instrument etc. all I’m saying. And in the world of pageants, yes, for her, a big whoop.

Leads to scholarships, movie contracts and depending on her talent, a contract of some kind. Yes, a big whoop for her.

Er, I'm thinking that she is in the one pictured in post #5, and unless I've gone stone cold color-blind, the lady has brown eyes.

“’Why is Miss South Africa white?’”

Just a hunch but I’d guess...genetic makeup?

Oh... you mean this is one of those racist questions the media keeps asking?

Sorry. Homie don’t play dat...

What’s wrong with me that I find canard designs so pretty?

That one is unusual in that the canard is shifted so far to the rear, but I could see immediately how that helps high AOA aspects on the main wing.

I tell ya, When I sit down and think about the world and my situation the first question that comes to mind is, Why Miss South Africa is white, really it is.

And then it hits me! There are white South Africans! In fact I know a white South African woman!

Now I can sleep soundly and all is right and good.

I have a friend from Namibia. Same with her. She is currently working towards getting US citizenship. Once she does, I will be able to introduce her as my African-American friend.

But there I was, I was taken to a place, the hall of the mountain kings
I stood high upon a mountain top, naked to the world
In front of every kind of girl, there was
black ones, round ones, big ones, crazy ones...

Out of the middle came a lady
She whispered in my ear something crazy...

I have a friend who was johannessburg. When she became a US citizen we threw party for her and a friend toasting her asked “How does it feel to be an African American?”.

I think every one of us spit our drinks out laughing.

pretty close, especially if they get a “movie contract”... we all have heard of the casting couch... although thats mostly for child actors these days

I am sure Hustler and some websites have openings for them

Wasn’t there a black Miss America?

There are more whites in SA than there are blacks in America (as a percentage).

What’s the problem?

Nope. Black Africans make up at least 75% of the population while Afrikaners (descended from Dutch Settlers in the Cape Colony) is now 10% or so.

You’re forgetting that there’s many ethnic groups in South Africa including Africans, Coloreds, Afrikaners, Indians and Chinese.
