Papua New Guinean Beauty Queen Holds Her Head High Despite Racist Shouting ‘You’re Black and Ugly’ During Pageant  — Atlanta Black Star

Miss Pacific Islands Leoshina Kariha, 19, addressed the “painful” comment in a video posted to her Facebook page Sunday, but said the incident did not overshadow that fact she’d been “welcomed” and “embraced” by the Tongan people during her time there.
