Row over 'white as snow' Miss France

AFP - A black rights group on Monday slammed the latest Miss France competition for producing a "white as snow" winner from a field it claimed was unrepresentative of the country's ethnic make-up.

Marine Lorphelin, 19, a brunette medical student from Burgundy, was on Saturday crowned Miss France 2013, having edged out Miss Tahiti, Hinarini de Longeaux, in the final round of judging.

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.

"The failure to represent the contemporary French population in an event such as this is obviously serious," Tin said in a statement issued jointly with Fred Royer, the creator of Miss Black France.

"It amounts to denying the very existence of French people of African origin."

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?)."

France is home to around five million Muslims, most of them of north African origin.

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."


As far as I understand, everyone is allowed to participate in this competition. I don't see why they should complain.

The "That's because I'm black, right?" shit again.

1) As far as I know, most of the population in France are white, so it's normal that most candidates are white too.
2) The girl isn't "white as snow", she isn't even blonde.
3) It's just a stupid contest; as long as the rules allow everybody to take part in equal conditions, I don't see what's wrong with the winner.
4) Is it just me or the African blacks are being racist with the overseas departments blacks? :unsure:

The other chick even isn't that black. Maybe "white as snow" won because she impressed the judges more?

It's a waste of time anyway. Everyone knows that the really good looking women on this planet don't enter silly beauty pageants. They are already flying all over the world making millions posing for magazines and walking the fashion world's catwalks. Beauty pageants are just second rate 'beauties'.

they don't? i'm not sure about that, because i've seen some really nice ones in them.

as for the story, meh, *shrugs* i read a report a that said 56-60% of France's ethnic minorities felt discriminated against.
i think the leader of cran might have chosen a better "battle" then a beauty pageant, but were there's smoke..
