[Translation : “I’m not racist but Miss France competition should be only for white women, it seems logical actually” “In terms of beauty, sorry but blacks don’t come close to whites.” “Blacks all look the same, it’s disturbing”]
I guess it was predictable.
Yesterday, Flora Coquerel won the Miss France competition. And now, racist comments. DUMB racist comments.
First, the second most-researched terms when you type her name is “origins” : well, her family is Guadelupiean. So pretty French. And even if her parents were from foreign countries, who cares ?
And now, tweets about how blacks should be banished from the competition… Are you serious ? I hate people, sometimes.
BUT THERE’S NO RACISM IN EUROPE
Hahaha.. Whoever says there’s no racism in Europe is probably white.
Seriously. I see people say that shit all the time and I’m like, “nnno, we imported that shit from YOU, ASSHOLES”

I am so tired of seeing female characters getting raped, beaten, and killed—all for titillation or to move along a male character’s arc. Call her the Manic Pixie Dead Girl.
Or ‘raped girl’, for that matter. I won’t be watching the new season of [SPOILER] because I found out that a major female character will be sexually assaulted. It’s become impossible to enjoy most quality television shows because the hurt or endangered women device is so frequently used. And if a character is pregnant, forget it—you pretty much know she’s a goner.
Yes, dead or harmed women in television is nothing new. There are entire series dedicated to the practice (I’m looking at you, SVU!). But lately, I’ve just found it too…stressful. I watch my favorite female characters with my heart in my throat, just waiting for the inevitable to happen. Women have to fear and anticipate violence and sexual assault in their everyday real life—I don’t want to fear for it in my entertainment as well. It’s bad for my soul.
Edgar Allan Poe once wrote, “The death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world.” Too many male writers and directors buy into this narrative. But I don’t have to."
The GOP has a plan to stop Wendy Davis: blatant voter suppression.
Women don’t like having their bodies policed, and are supporting Davis like no Democrat has been backed before. But Republicans aren’t fighting back on the issues — they’ve pushed through a Voter ID law that blocks the votes of countless Texas women.
Starting this November, Texans must show a photo ID with their up-to-date legal name instead of IDs like a birth certificate. That’s not a problem for single or married men — but it leaves a third of Texas women scrambling in a state with just 81 DMVs in its 254 counties.
The only way the GOP can keep Texas is by rigging the game. Women have the power to turn this state blue for the first time in two decades, but we need to help secure their rights first. Please, join us in calling on the Texas legislature to get rid of this unconstitutional Voter ID law and stop trying to strip women of their votes.
