Today is the Philippines's Independence Day, marking its independence from Spain on June 12, 1898. In honor of this national holiday for Filipinos, we highlight some Filipina beauty queens of partial black ancestry who live in the Philippines. Clockwise, starting from the top right box:
_________________________
1. KARINA DIZON: Miss Southern Leyte 2015, a provincial/state title. @kareynadii

2. ELLE HOLLMAN: Represented the Philippines in the Model Of The World 2013 pageant 👏🙌😎. @_ellehollman

3. PERLA PEABODY: 2nd runner up in the Miss Pangasinan 2016 provincial/state pageant. @pearlpeabody
____________________
4. APRIEL SMITH: Top 15 finalist at the Miss Philippines 2016 pageant. 🙌👍👏 @aprielsmith

5. MARA SMITH: In 2014, at age 17, she was crowned Miss Bukidnon 2014 (a provincial/state title). She would've competed in the Miss Philippines 2014 pageant, but swiftly got dethroned by the Bukidnon governor 😬😈😠 for being not being born in the Philippines.....or so that was the claimed reason. @marasmithhh

That moment when you meet your country's reigning beauty queen 👑, & she even encourages you to enter your country's top beauty pageant in a few years. This happened to Mara Smith (pictured left), 20yo, who recently met Miss Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina (who went Top 6 at the recent Miss Universe pageant) at an event held by the Maguindanao Province's Governor. @marasmithhh

You may recall BPQ mentioning in a previous post that Mara Smith won the Miss Bukidnon 2014 title, but that province's governor quickly dethroned her.....claiming that he did so because Mara wasn't born in the Philippines (never mind that quite a few Filipina queens have been foreign-born nor are minors — which Mara was at the time — required to declare citizenship under Filipino law; we guess the rules didn't apply in this province when a part-black girl won). 😕

Meet Mara Luz Smith, who in the past has tried (& hopefully is still trying! 🙏) to become the first Miss Philippines of known black ancestry. In 2014, at age 17, she was crowned Miss Bukidnon 2014 (a provincial/state title; see top right picture). She would've competed in the Miss Philippines 2014 pageant, but swiftly got dethroned by the Bukidnon governor 😬😈😠 for being not being born in the Philippines. Or at least that was the claimed reason. 😕

We wonder why Miss World Philippines/Miss World 2013 Megan Young (who, like Mara, was born in USA and has an American father....albeit a white dad) and Miss Universe Philippines 2010 Venus Raj (born in Qatar & has an Indian father) didn't get dethroned? Especially since Mara was still a minor in 2014 & thus, under Filipino law, not even required to select citizenship until age 18? Hmmmmm..... ____________________________
According to her IG page, her role models are Miss Brazil 2016 Raissa Santana (the first black woman to be crowned Miss Brazil in 30 years); Miss USA 2016 @deshaunabarber (whom she recently met when the Miss Universe pageant was in the Philippines; see bottom left picture), and especially @aprielsmith (Top 15 semi-finalist at the Miss Philippines 2016 pageant; see bottom right picture). Hopefully we'll see this young lady on the Miss Philippines stage in the near future! @marasmithhh
