Thandokazi Mfundisi, a Top 5 finalist at the Miss South Africa 2018 pageant who is signed to one of her country's top modeling agencies, writes: "So someone DM'd me, to tell me that they don't like my short 'nappy' hair.
#ShortHairDontCare #NappyHair #Afro" @thandomfundisi

Translation: Thando is gonna keep doing what she wants to do 😂, because she doesn't live her life based on strangers' ignorant comments. We bet the comment though was from someone who (naturally) has short 'nappy' hair himself or herself. 😒

One more day until the Miss Universe Barbados 2018 pageant! 😆 Among the contestants is Meghan Theobalds. At 6’1” (1.85m), she is the tallest delegate in this year's pageant. Besides Barbados, she has lived in France and Canada. The 26-year-old beauty has visited nearly 20 countries, and hopes that a trip to Thailand to compete at the Miss Universe 2018 pageant is in her near future. @meghantheobalds

Happy New Year to our Ethiopian readers! 😆 Here's some #BlackGirlMagic, Ethiopian style, in honor of the holiday.

TRIVIA: Courtesy of Wikipedia: "Enkutatash (Ethiopic: እንቁጣጣሽ) is the first day of the New Year in Ethiopia. It occurs on Meskerem 1 on the Ethiopian calendar, which is 11 September (or, during a leap year, 12 September) according to the Gregorian calendar. This holiday is based on the Ethiopian calendar, which was fixed to the Julian calendar in 25 BC by Emperor Augustus of Rome with a start date of 29 August J.C., thus establishing the New Year on this day. The date marks the approximate end of the 'rainy season'. It has also been associated traditionally with the return of the Queen of Sheba to Ethiopia following her visit to King Solomon in Jerusalem in ca. 980 BC."

The Miss America 2019 pageant 👑🇺🇸🗽is starting! 🙌 This year's pageant features the largest class of black/part black contestants in YEARS (double the usual class)....if not of all time.👍 State pageant organizers are clearly betting big that the next Miss America will be (part) black. Will their hunch be right?

As you know, Miss America announced major changes to the pageant after it abruptly switched leadership after that infamous leaked-emails scandal (e.g., no swimsuit competition, contestants will supposedly not be judged on their beauty & physique, etc.). It'll be interesting to see how the new format plays out tonight, & its impact on TV ratings. Will one of these ladies become the next Miss America (& the ninth Miss America of known black ancestry), & lead the charge in the Miss America 2.0 era? The ladies:

UPPER ROW: Gabby Taveras (MASSACHUSETTS), Madeline Collins (WEST VIRGINIA) @missamericama @missamericawv

MIDDLE ROW: Mikhayla Hughes-Shaw (IOWA), Asya Branch (MISSISSIPPI), Nia Franklin (NEW YORK) @missamericaia @missamericams @missamericany

The journey to Miss America isn't easy. Cierra Jackson, Miss District of Columbia (America) 2016 would know. She offers tips on being your authentic self in any pageant, despite obstacles. In her case, many folks advised her to not compete with her Afro. She chose to do so anyway.....& wound up winning the Miss America 2017 pageant's preliminary swimsuit competition. @cierradjackson
