    You black, you bad, you trash: pro-democracy Thai beauty queen faces internet backl

    A newly crowned beauty queen has become the target of social media bullying after voicing support for Thailand’s pro-democracy protesters.


    Pacharaporn “Nam” Chantarapadit, who was crowned Miss Grand Thailand on Sunday night, has faced a torrent of criticism – much of it centred around her dark skin tone – for her response when asked as part of the pageant for her thoughts on the protests.


    “From my heart, I would choose the protesters’ side,” said the 22-year-old, without blinking. “Because we have the right to express our opinion and we want the best for our country.

    “Moreover, I want to [tell] the government, ‘If you call this country Thailand, we need real democracy, and we need you to get out of the country’, thank you,” Nam told a screaming crowd.

    While Nam went on to win the pageant, the remarks prompted a backlash from pro-establishment groups and she has faced a flood of abuse on the internet, much of it focused on her relatively dark skin. In Thailand, lighter skin has traditionally been linked to people of higher socio-economic status.


    Members of the Facebook group PDRC Hot News Update posted a photo of another contender with a lighter skin tone, saying she deserved to be crowned instead of Nam but had been discriminated against because of her political opinions. PDRC stands for the People’s Democratic Reform Committee – the pro-military political group that led the protests against former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s democratically elected government from 2013 to 2014.

    You just think of these airheads frantically slapping on the skin whitening cream and layers of makeup trying to look caucasian, and straight away you know this snobby racism against the darker skinned is driven by the massive fucking chip they've got on their shoulders.

    Nappy Hair

    Afro-textured hair is the natural hair texture of certain populations in Africa, the African diaspora, Oceania and in some parts of South and Southeast Asia. Each strand of this hair type grows in a tiny, angle-like helixshape.

    Meanwhile, there are interesting stories circulating about an 'SAS' based in Germany.

    They are literally called the 'SAS', and have the same motto - 'Who Dares Wins'.

    Good for her. A bit different from the vapid "I'm wishing for world peace" beauty queen statements.
