Santo Domingo.- Dalia Fernandez, who represented Santiago, was elected Miss Dominican Republic 2011 last night, in the pageant held in the Hotel Jaragua.

The first finalist is Katherine Cruz, from Santo Domingo North, while third, fourth and fifth places went to the candidates Kirssi Abreu, from the National District; Evaida Santana, from Peravia, and Luz Goico, from El Seibo.

The public booed the jury members disgruntled with their selection of the Santiago beauty, and instead supported Katherine Cruz, who was the early favorite.

Her nose is fake. Katherine Cruz had more natural beauty and would have been a better miss universe contender...

I personally would have chosen mi negra sabrosa, Katherine Cruz Varela. Can somebody get me her phone number. I will marry her right now. But seriously, what the hell are we doing despreciando a la negra sabrosa. We have the same problem in the USA and with Belleza Latina of discriminating agaisnt the darker shades, the morenas. I love negras sabrosas. I vote for Katherine Cruz 200%. Don't forget to get me her phone number. Thank you amigos and amigas. And, hurray for mi negra sabrosa and all negras sabrosas. Let's stop the hate and the discrimination against those of us with darker colored bodies. We need to evolve and we need to become more civilized. Does everyone agree with me? If you are not civilized, please don't reply.

I was perfectly clear, "If you are not civilized, please don't reply to my article." But, there is always some fool out there that will simply not get it (scratching my head). Katherine Cruz Varela for Miss Universe NOW, de una vez! I also agree with "hellborn25" that the judges should have their eyes examined; at least three times and by three different eye-doctors, ha ha ha. Didn't they see Katherine Cruz? You have got to be f***ing kidding me! Que viva mi negra sabrosa!

You are one racist sob. "YOU PEOPLE"!? This is a racist indicator. This is exactly what I am talking about. In the beauty pageant industry there still is a lot of favoritism toward white or lighter colored people. This is true in the USA, it is true in Mexico, it is true in RD and it is true in most world countries where you have a blend of people. Reality check, much of this racism stems from religions that worship whiteness as a virtue. Why can't green be a symbol of virtue, why can't brown or black be a symbol of virtue? Racist ignorants and "sell-outs" (vendidos) are the first ones to complain about a genuine complaint against racism. How interesting? You can be white and be married to a brown or a black lady and still be racist as hell. You would need to go through a serious personal transformation in order to truly love that lady. Otherwise, you are just a racist clown living in a fantasy world. We need to give everyone a chance PERIOD!

I find it unfortunate that not one poster mentions that not only do the contestants need to be beautiful, aviture that was given to them by God but they also need to be witty, positive and vibrant. In other words they have to make an effort to win the vote of the judges.

"easyrider".... I give you a PLUS for you comment. I know that in addition to a lady's physical charm or physical attributes, the judges must pay attention to personality. The playing field has to be leveled though, and we are not there yet, in terms of social fairness. I think physical beauty and or physical attributes are going to be there in the fashion industry, but all shades need to have a fair chance. I feel bad for all those folks of any race that are considered externally ugly. We need to work on those inequalities as well. There is a lot of discrimination against short, overweight and hairy people, generally speaking. This is something to work on as well. It will get to that point where physical beauty is not going to matter that much in beauty contests or in a constest to represent a country, and I will vote for that.

We, as men, will never know what can be done a woman. They may even be able to do anything more than a man.
