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

Posted on 09/28/2013 7:02:07 PM PDT by markomalley

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!

There's that "disrespect" thing again.

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.

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."

Shouldn’t they determine who is eligible BEFORE the event, and then they should live with their own decision.

I’m glad I’m a conservative and don’t have to weigh the “facts” in this case: grammy is an illegal, that’s a plus, but “Jakiya” would be worth a full twenty points in Scrabble, that’s a minus, then there’s a self-described Latino talking about “disrespect”, so I don’t know which little all-defining race box to put that guy in.

So let’s just go to the default: Pageant organizers are racists, there we go, done.

I want to see the definition of Hispanic that contestants have to be at least 25% of.

Would a Native Mexican (indigenous) qualify? If she didn’t speak Spanish? Would a Peruvian named Hiro Matsuko? An Argentinian named Greta Hoffner? A Castilian named Catalina Gutierrez? A Spaniard named Maryam Abouzaid?

She could be Mulatto, Mestizo, White or Black or the mixture of Black and Mexican Indian, (Zambo), and still me Hispanic.

When we lived in San Antonio I would occasionally run into a guy who was as White Robert the Bruce, but who spoke only Spanish.

I have seen Cubans in Florida who were the same. They could be Black, White of Zimmerman.

I loved this line:

"Tiffany Ayala, whose daughter, Meriana Ayala, ended up replacing McKoy as the title holder, said McKoy often told them she was black, not Dominican...“If you’re not Hispanic, you can’t join it,” Ayala said. “Just like I’m not going to put my daughter in the Little Miss Ebony Queen."

Bwahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!

Isn’t that special!!!!

If we had a Miss WHITE _______(fill in the blank) we could have fun saying a Blonde was ‘whiter’ than a redhead, would a ‘Ruddy complexion of Irish descent’ be WHITE enough?

Could we judge Whiteness on how they looked after an hour or three in the tanning booth?

Would an Albino be ‘overly WHITE’?

Then we could designate White White, Black White, Hispanic White, Asian White....

This is all so confusing......

Great show, although, you had to ignore about 10% of it for the idiot politics. About standard quota.

I would hardly file this under “big story” but that’s the AP for you I guess.

This reminds me of the time when I looked at the requirements for “Little Miss Columbus Day” (don’t remember the exact name, it might have been something else) for Bayonne, NJ. (Why did I read them, because they were there!)

The contestants had to have at least one parent who was 100% of Italian extraction, so if both your parents were 1/2 ethnically Italian, that was not sufficient.

I was surprised.
