Have beauty standards finally changed here in the U-S?

WBGO Commentator Mildred Antenor thinks so.

"Miss Teen USA, Miss America, Miss USA, Miss Universe and Miss World, what do these five beauty pageants have in common?  They all currently hold black women as the crowned winner of each contest. I have to tell you that I never thought I'd see the day when melinated women would hold those titles."
