Can’t beauty pageants be about culture rather than race?

by on Sep.29, 2013, under Posts>News & Commentary

I just read about the controversy over “Little Miss Hispanic Delaware” on Salon.com: “Little Miss Hispanic winner loses title in Del.

I have been thinking Miss Vietnam Global competition should be opened to people of all races as well. If organizers worry that the winners are not Vietnamese enough, ask some questions about Vietnam history and Vietnamese culture should help.

Now that mix race marriages are becoming more and more common, it will be harder and harder to find out what race a contestant belongs to. Also, it is not important to be pure in race. So race should not be the deciding factor.

I think it is more important to preserve culture heritage. Whatever is good in your culture, you should try to preserve it and try to introduce it to the world through beauty pageants. You can even win the world over with the best thing in your culture heritage, as we can see from the recent Miss America pageant.

Can a minority contestant win a beauty pageant held among the general population by simply being a minority? Don’t let race be the thing that stops cultural heritage from being preserved.
