LITTLE MISS HISPANIC WINNER LOSES TITLE IN DEL. (not Latina enough)
AP ^ | 9/28/2013

The winner of the Little Miss Hispanic Delaware contest has been stripped of her crown over concerns that she is not Hispanic.

The News Journal of Wilmington (http://delonline.us/15AmTA6) reported Saturday that 7-year-old Jakiya McKoy lost the title two weeks ago.

Some critics of the decision say the move was made because McKoy is black and not Latina enough, though organizers say it had nothing to do with race.

"There is just like a baseline of disrespect to black women," Daniel Jose Older, who started a Change.org petition, told the newspaper. "As Latinos, it's really important that we understand what's going on with us and that we reclaim this girl as our sister.

Pageant organizers require contestants to be at least 25 percent Hispanic.

“Older said McKoy’s grandmother was born in the Dominican Republic and lived illegally in the United States before she died. He said she therefore didn’t have proof of where she came from.”

This was just icing on the cake!

Can we take away Obama’s claim to the presidency for not being American enough?

Or his Peace Price for not being peaceful enough?

Race is more important than anything. Nothing is more important than race. Qualifications shall only be race based. Be the right race, or flunk the test.

The vast majority of “Hispanics” have very little Hispanic blood in them.

A dirty truth about racism at the hands of another "minority".

Not Latina enough? That’s gotta mean that she’s actually a US citizen.

I didn't realize how irrelevant I've become - I thought that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was intended to secure equal rights for all. As MLK said, we should be judged by the content of our character, not the color of our skin.

The very idea of a Miss Hispanic anything is antithetical to that idea. I thought we were supposed to be entering a "post-racial" era. Instead, we're heading into an era with racial discord being fostered at all levels of society.

When I am confronted with an application or anything else soliciting my race, I answer "human."
