OtherS looked at the history of pageants in South Africa and the ignorance of black pageant women during apartheid.
Maybe it’s a lot to ask, but it would’ve been so amazing to see the women who could not be Miss SA because of apartheid being honored. The ones who were crowned Miss Africa South. #CynthiaShange #PearlJansen #MissSA2018 pic.twitter.com/DsbcIHWInJ

imagine if Africa had its own standards, like imagine a whole #MissSA2018 where beauty is of African standard where size doesn't matter and the dresses and the whole event shows the beauty and natural side of Africa. What I'm seeing now is the Barbie standard of beauty😫😪📴
