In the Philippines where white people are revered and most girls wish to have white skin, it is refreshing to see uplifting posts about black-skinned women praised for their beauty.
It is a sad reality in the Philippines that most girls want to become white, but most of them have dark skin because of their genes. Filipinos, after all, are brown-skinned by nature. This is the reason why whitening products and glutathione infusions are so popular. Most girls would spend a fortune just to become white – and would avoid the sun at all costs, to ensure they keep that color.
For many Pinoys, dark skin is not good to look at, but white skin looks perfect!
Miss Angola – Leila Luliana da Costa Vieira Lopes
But photos of gorgeous Miss Angola have gone viral again because this woman looks so stunning despite having very dark skin.
Facebook page Sᴇñᴏʀɪᴛᴀ shared some of Miss Angola’s photos, praising her beauty and gorgeous black skin.
“Ano sasabat kapa ba na maputi lang yan kaya maganda hampaslupa? The Most Beautiful Black Miss Universe ever.. Angola ❤️” Sᴇñᴏʀɪᴛᴀ wrote.
A lot of netizens agreed – and the post went viral, garnering over 31k reactions and more than 34k shares. Indeed, black is beautiful! It’s high time that Filipinos embrace our beautiful brown skin because Miss Angola and so many others like her are proud of their beautiful black skin!
But many confused this Miss Angola with another black beauty, Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa. The Miss Universe in the viral photos is Miss Angola Leila Luliana da Costa Vieira Lopes who won the crown in 2011.
Her win is monumental as she becomes the first Angolan Miss Universe. She is also the second black African woman and the fourth black woman in the world to win the Miss Universe title!
So, don’t ever let anyone tell you that your dark skin makes you ugly. Black is beautiful, definitely!
