Zimbabwe Crown Goes to Non-Black Contestant
Zimbabwe Crown Goes to Non-Black Contestant: The young woman will represent the southern African country on the global stage during the upcoming Miss Universe pageant in El Salvador this November.
The Miss Universe Zimbabwe competition took place last Saturday, and a young woman named Brooke Bruk-Jackson won the coveted crown. However, her victory sparked considerable outrage for not being dark-skinned.

Others defended Bruk-Jackson’s victory, citing her exceptional ability to answer questions and her modeling skills as reasons for her win.
