South Africa’s reigning queen Zozibini Tunzi dedicate a post the hates, to the unkind comments that she’s been receiving about her blackness since her crowning back in August this year.

In Zozibini’s post she said: ” I see an opportunity to educate and speak out on a serious issue. When people say hurtful, negative things about black women and black people in general I do not quickly take offense and here’s why. Society has previously been programmed in such a way that there’s nothing beautiful about being black. The furthest you are from being fair skinned the uglier you are. That unfortunately has been the universal standard of beauty and it is very difficult for some people to unlearn it”

Miss SA went on to say that she will be going into Miss Universe with hopes to shatter whatever misconception and stereotypes people have of beauty. See social media post below:
