  1. Incroyable!!!!! Beauty and brains. Quite a lethal combination. Coupled with a kickass résumé like that, it’s no surprise that she won. Way to show those pasty face barbies who is boss

  2. She was easily too beautiful for the competition. As I said in my post, it is nice to see that a black woman wins on average one out of every three years. That is a statement about our beauty that white society may try to push to the side but it just can’t. It was also nice to see two African American women place in the top 3.
