A black rights group attacked the latest Miss France competition for choosing a "white as snow" winner.


Louis-Georges Tin, the president of the CRAN (Representative Council of Black Associations), on Monday lamented the lack of contestants from France's African and north African communities.

Of the 33 finalists in Saturday's contest, eight were from ethnic minorities with six of those coming from France's Pacific or Caribbean territories. "In the antiquated world of Miss France, blacks apparently can only come from overseas departments," the CRAN statement said.

"As for Frenchwomen of north African heritage, they were 'represented' by only one candidate who was quickly eliminated (too Muslim perhaps?)." The statement went on to express regret that "Miss France is as white as the end of year snow on the steeples of an eternal France."

So let me get this right.

A black rights group is slamming the Miss France competition for choosing a white French girl as a winner rather than a black, Muslim girl of north African heritage?
